The Israeli Prime Minister is losing it in his latest trip to America. He is yelling as loud as he can, identifying Iran as the nuclear duck, itching to go to strike Iran and drawing a line in the sand with Obama that Israel will be master of its fate.
So now the whole world knows that America does not want to start a war, or a pre-emptive strike, at this time but Israel wants it. So when Israel strikes Iran should America rush to defend Israel or is it Israel’s job to finish what they started on their own?
If the Israeli Prime Minister had any balls and meant what he has been saying for the last few years he’d have struck Iran by now. Israel wants to start a war by striking Iran but wants America to continue it and be the one defending Israel during any Iranian retaliation. That’s has always been the crux of the argument but now with each disagreement it is becoming more clear to the American people and the world that Israel cannot finish what they start.
So Netanyahu’s argument that Israel should be allowed to defend itself is bull crap! No one is stopping Israel to carry on with its threat.
On the other hand in response to the Israeli rhetoric the Islamic Republic leaders keep saying if Israel strikes in retaliation they’ll strike American interests in the region! WTF?! If they say they will retaliate in kind and focus on Israel then the burden of living under Iranian missiles will have more meaning to Israeli people than being non-chalant that America will defend them no matter what. America will be hard pressed to strike Iran if other American interests are not under fire.
The argument should be that Israel should be allowed to defend itself on its own. Otherwise Israel is a coward nation who is just pretending to be strong and instead just crying to his mommy!
