Netanyahu Controls Obama’s Fate (warning: By Dick Morris & Eileen McGann) [View all]
OP NOTE: While I normally wouldn't post tripe from Morris & McGann, I heard him spouting this crap yesterday on the radio. I think it is important to understand, in this case, what they are pushing for. Sorry if the post offends anyone.
If Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants to seal President Obama's fate, all he has to do is to attack Iran. It is clear from Obama's AIPAC speech that the president will continue to talk about diplomacy and sanctions for the remainder of his term and will take no military action against Iran. If Israel attacks Iran, she will achieve three things:
a. Israel will buy time by delaying the Iranian nuclear program by one to three years.
b. Those extra years will give the effective sanctions, only now being imposed, time to work.
c. The resulting increase in the price of oil - and its impact on the American economy - will doom Obama's re-election chances, assuring that a pro-Israeli Republican Administration takes power.
