As it becomes more and more likely that the Obama regime is going to embrace Iran, Israel appears to have given up any hope it had that the US, under Obama, would be a real friend to Israel and assist in Israel’s coming attack on the Persian nation to destroy their Atom Bomb making capabilities.
With Israel’s election a little less than two weeks away now it is looking more likely that our favorite Benjamin Netanyahu is going to be the next Prime Minister of Israel. A former Israeli Special Forces officer, Bebe Netanyahu is no push over and he seems always ready for a fight. He will not hold back from a preemptive strike against Iran.
Netanyahu said last week at the World Economic Forum that neutralizing Iran's leaders would reduce the danger posed to Israel and others by Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah militants in south Lebanon. "We have had two wars with two Iranian proxies in two years and Persia has now two bases on the eastern Mediterranean," said Netanyahu. He went on to say: “"I think we are going to have to deal with neutralizing the power of the mother regime." The “mother regime,” of course, is the country of Iran, itself.
The new US Secretary of State is going to have her hands full with Bebe. Mrs. Clinton may be smart, but Netanyahu is no slouch in the brains department and he is quick on his feet and a fighter to boot. And, unlike so many world leaders today, including “The Obama”, Netanyahu is not fooling himself as to Iran’s actions nor Iran’s intentions once she possess the atom bomb. Netanyahu said: "We have never had, since the dawn of the nuclear age, nuclear weapons in the hands of such a fanatical regime,”. He said Iran’s possession of the nuclear bomb is the world’s greatest challenge at the start of this new century.
Hamas, according to Netanyahu, will never be at peace with Israel. He questions what kind of agenda Israel can have with an organization that seeks to wipe Israel from the face of the planet. Netanyahu insists that stopping Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons ranks above dealing with the meltdown of the world’s economy, explaining that the economy problems are reversible, but Iran obtaining nuclear weapons is not.

Meantime, back at the ranch… here in the states, of course, Obama's aides have drafted a letter in his name to Iranian leaders that aims to thaw relations between the two countries. This is according to an article in “The Guardian”, a British newspaper. The Guardian goes on to say that at least three drafts of the letter have been composed. The report says the letter seeks to assure the Iranian leaders that the US does not want to change the regime in Iran, the US merely seeks to change the behavior of the Persian state.
Although the letter will be addressed to the Iranian people it will be sent directly to Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, or it may be released as an just an open letter.
Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is calling for an apology, from the US, for what it feels are past wrongs done to Iran by the US. Ahmadinejad is quoted as having said: "Those who say they want to make change, this is the change they should make: They should apologize to the Iranian nation and try to make up for their dark background and the crimes they have committed against the Iranian nation,"
So, as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton begins her tenure in office and she cannot look forward to dealing with these two hot spots on the map. She should understand that, hopefully, with Netanyahu at the helm in Israel, Israel will do pretty much what Israel chooses simply because the Israeli government does not trust the Obama government. Israel will not be seeking guidance or input from the US when it comes to matters of Israel’s national security.
As far as Iran is concerned… Iran is going to do whatever it wants regardless of what the US promises, even after an apology from the US. Iran wants to see the US grovel as it did during the Carter administration. Ahmadinejad is convinced the US has another Carter in the White House and, on that, we agree with Ahmadinejad.
If we could make a simple suggestion to the Obama regime, which would solve both problems at once, we would suggest that the US shut up, and get out of Israel’s way and allow the IDF to take care of the Persian Problem. But don’t hold your breath. With a Prima Donna in the White House and another at the office of Sec. State they are not about to allow anything to happen without their very public fingerprints all over it. After all, whatever it is, it is, first and foremost, about them!
