Below is story from The Atlantic. Benjamin Netanyahu is the right wing Prime Minister for Isreal these days. He recently made a proposition to President Obama to either disarm Iran or he will. The interesting irony to this story is Isreal tried this during the Bush years and got shot down
. See even though the Bush administration as well as 95% of congess have unapologetic support for Isreal, at the end of the day the Bush administration still pulled the strings. Now there is a new president, and to Isreal that means trying to gain leverage by strong arming Obama. Starting a war with Iran is something Isreal has been wanting to do for a long time. Unfortunately this may be their time. I personally do not believe Obama has the stones to be firm against Isreal on this situation. While of course Obama is smart enough to understand the dynamics of the proposition, at the end of the day he is like most other democrats and he will be a pussy punk bitch and give Isreal whatever they want. Netanyahu has no interest in seeking peace with Palestine or any other Arab country for that matter. In case you forgot
the people of Palestine are still picking up the remains of their lives from the horribly one-sided attack against them just months ago. See the idea of a solution for these bigoted warmongers like Netanyahu and Bush are to bring “peace” through military means. I honestly hope I am wrong for the sake of inncocent Iranians, Palestinians, Jews and civilians around the world this doesn’t go down. Hell, maybe Obama will live up to his rhetoric of change and take a stong stance against Netanyahu and Isreal and tell them to chill with that shit. Lets keep out fingers crossed. (By the way I am not by any means saying Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hamas are angels. This is just merely a warning that when racist meglomaniacs use their toys innocent people die…*It has to stop)
Netanyahu to Obama: Stop Iran—Or I Will
This story has been updated on Jeffrey Goldberg’s blog in response to some controversy that it generated.
In an interview conducted shortly before he was sworn in today as prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu laid down a challenge for Barack Obama. The American president, he said, must stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons—and quickly—or an imperiled Israel may be forced to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities itself.
“The Obama presidency has two great missions: fixing the economy, and preventing Iran from gaining nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu told me. He said the Iranian nuclear challenge represents a “hinge of history” and added that “Western civilization” will have failed if Iran is allowed to develop nuclear weapons.
In unusually blunt language, Netanyahu said of the Iranian leadership, “You don’t want a messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs. When the wide-eyed believer gets hold of the reins of power and the weapons of mass death, then the entire world should start worrying, and that is what is happening in Iran.”
