Obama to tell Netanyahu US gearing up for Iran strike

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by OKNancy (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Times of Israel

When he visits Israel next month, US President Barack Obama will tell Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that a “window of opportunity” for a military strike on Iran will open in June, according to an Israeli TV report Monday evening.

Obama will come bearing the message that if diplomatic efforts and sanctions don’t bear fruit, Israel should “sit tight” and let Washington take the stage, even if that means remaining on the sidelines during a US military operation, Channel 10 reported. Netanyahu will be asked to refrain from any military action and keep a low profile, avoiding even the mention of a strike, the report said, citing unnamed officials.

In London Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry said an Iran with nuclear weapons was “simply unacceptable” and warned the time limit for a diplomatic solution was running out.

“As we have repeatedly made clear, the window for a diplomatic solution simply cannot remain open forever,” said Kerry, on his first international tour as America’s top diplomat. “But it is open today. It is open now and there is still time, but there is only time if Iran makes the decision to come to the table and to negotiate in good faith.

30. Channel 10

 

Not that familiar with it myself. Wikipedia indicates "Channel 10 is the only Israeli broadcast Channel to be carried by local Cables in North America and Europe." I hope it's bunky propaganda too but fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again...Peace

whole world know beforehand?

18. The summer has nothing to do with the Navy or Air Force.

The Army and Marines would not be involved. That said I don't believe secret reports that are on the front page of a newspaper.

Smells like Bovine Excrement to me.
Why would you let an adversary know ahead of time what's going to happen and when?

I don't believe it at all.

23. Look here at 'Legislation to be advanced by AIPAC...'

Legislation to be advanced by AIPAC during the conference includes bills planned for introduction in the Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives that would designate Israel a "major strategic ally," a new designation not previously conferred on any country and one that would recognize Israel's role in keeping the Middle East stable and in combating terrorism around the globe. Another bill would guarantee to Israel U.S. backing should it act against Iran.
