The prime minister of is angry with and is coming here to force a hardening of U.S. policy toward .

“Bibi” Netanyahu had his anger on display at a meeting in with Sens. and .

"Everybody's working in ... uh ... good faith"

McCain emerged saying he had never seen an Israeli prime minister “that unhappy.” “He was angry,” said McCain. “I’ve never seen U.S.- relations at this point.”

“The Israelis are unnerved,” said Graham. “They think the administration is sending the wrong signal, and so do I.”

What has so enraged Netanyahu? The Obama policy of tightening sanctions on while holding out the opportunity for Tehran to negotiate and provide guarantees that its nuclear program is not aimed at an atomic bomb.

The U.S. intelligence community unanimously believes that is some time away, perhaps years, from being able to produce a nuclear weapon and has not made the command decision to build one.

retorts that is entering a “zone of immunity,” when will lack the ability to attack and abort ’s nuclear program, as new nuclear sites are being moved underground. Netanyahu’s government is also angry at what it sees as U.S. leaders’ distancing themselves from .

Michael Hayden

When that fifth Iranian nuclear scientist was assassinated and Tehran accused America and of complicity, Secretary of State denounced the murder, leaving Israel as prime suspect.

Secretary of Defense leaked to columnist David Ignatius that Israel might strike Iran in April, May or June, leaving no doubt as to who wants a , while ex- Director Michael Hayden openly disparages Israel’s capacity to cripple Iran’s nuclear sites: “They only have the ability to make this worse.”

Adm. William Fallon, who headed U.S. Central Command, has been categorical: “No one I am aware of thinks that there is a positive outcome from a military strike” on Iran.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Martin Dempsey has called Iran a “rational actor” and told the Israelis that for them to attack Iran now would be “premature,” “destabilizing” and imprudent.

Netanyahu said that Dempsey’s remarks “served Iran” and the general was “unwilling to aid Israel.”

Like Panetta, U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has said he does not believe that Iran has decided to build a bomb, while National Security Adviser Tom Donilon spent three days in Israel, reportedly arguing against an Israeli attack.

“The Israelis are fuming over what they perceive as deliberate attempts by the Obama administration to undermine the deterrent effect of the Jewish state’s threat to use force against Iran by publicly questioning the timing and utility of such strikes.” So write Jay Solomon and Carol Lee of The Wall Street Journal.

Netanyahu is coming to Washington, the Journal writers add, to demand that Obama spell out the “red lines” Iran will not be allowed to cross without triggering a U.S. attack.

What Netanyahu wants is a U.S. ultimatum to Iran.

White House sources say that when Obama meets Netanyahu Tuesday, he will reject the prime minister’s demands.

But the pressure to shorten the timetable for is intense and growing.

Obama will speak Sunday to the annual assembly of the Israeli lobby . Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney, all more hawkish than the president, have also been invited to address the conclave.

Three dozen senators have signed on to a resolution declaring it a U.S. “vital national interest” that Iran not possess even a “nuclear weapons capability.”

S.R. 380 reads like a resolution crafted as a casus belli, a cause for . For South Korea, Brazil and Japan all have a “nuclear weapons capability,” as all have the industrial proficiency and technical know-how to build an atomic bomb, should they chose to do so.

The resolution demands that Iran halt all uranium production and end its ballistic missile program, and declares “unacceptable” any U.S. policy of containment of an Iran that is capable of building a bomb, even if Iran has decided not to build a bomb.

Containment succeeded with a Soviet Empire with 10,000 nuclear weapons, but is apparently inadequate for dealing with an Iran that has no atom bombs, only the potential to build one.

S.R. 380 points directly toward a U.S. on Iran.

Who wants that ?

Netanyahu, his government, and his allies in U.S. politics and the press, and in a Congress that gave him 29 standing ovations the last time he spoke there.

Who does not want a war?

The White House, the Pentagon, the Joint Chiefs, the intelligence community, the antiwar left and Old Right, and millions of Americans who believe a U.S. war on Iran could ignite a sectarian and regional war that could prove catastrophic for the Middle East, the world economy and the United States of America.

    WIll Bibi break Obama? LOL! What’s there to “break”? That’s a very nonsensical question because Obama doesn’t make major decisions himself. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but our hero, Obama, is a puppet.

    Is everybody really fooled by this political theater? This is a Punch-and-Judy show, nothing more. Jews run Israel, and Jews run the U.S. government. Everything that happens is being coordinated and scripted at a level well over Obama’s head.

    This is either an attempt to create “plausible deniability” for U.S. support for a war of aggression against Iran (to be started by the Jews), or Netanyahu has painted himself into a corner with his rhetoric, and he needs Obama to give hin a face saving way out.

    Their evil flows fm the Talmud of the ancient Pharisees….They broke us on 9-11-01…when Mossad and it’s allies, assets and agents did that false-flag/mass trauma based mind control psy-op….it’s been downhill to WW III ever since…Which was their plan…The Satanic illuminati have so out-maneuvered us it’s a nightmare.

    Robert, they were all over the place. They killed more marines and army personel than Iraqis (Al Queda). They bombed nearly everything. They certainly killed the entire Iraqi intelligencia, sniped US personel, bombed mosqes, destroyed city centers with fake suicide bombers, they ran the show in terrorism.

    It pays to have arabs in your ranks who speak the language, know the customs, etc. Look up Juba the sniper. Start there. I could speak extemporaneously for 10 hours on what the mossad was doing in Iraq. It was hard to retrieve some of their operatives after they died in the field, that was the hard part for the Israelis. They had to kill everyone that became privy to that dead bodies origin. Neighborhoods in some cases. Word spreads like wild fire when you find an arm with a six sided star on it, and he was an “Arab”. They are good though, really good.

    When a humvee goes up and the Captain finds out the IED wasn’t an IED, but an Israeli built “laser ignition” device, what do you suppose happens to that platoon the next day Robert?

    It’s difficult for most people to understand just why the Israelis act the way they do….. this hubris and temper tantrum(s) is generated by bibi’s overlords. When dealing in foreign matters with Israel, you are effectively dealing with the Warburg, Rothschilde legislative branch. We already know how their treasury works.

    Bibi is talking for others in his wants and needs. Obama tells Sarkosy how bad it is to deal with Bibi every day? Who do you think Bibi has got around when he needs to vent about the “City” and the snakheads that live there? Bomb Israel and that hectare in London, make friends with the Iranians and the rest of the world, jail Obama, Bush, and the 10,000 others in less than a year. Bibi is just a landlord for the owners. Don’t get me wrong, the man is clearly insane, lest we forget, his own psychiatrist committed suicide 🙂 Inbreds….

    A question?

    When the USA, U.K., France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and a host of other countries influenced by the USA, sent troops to fight Israels war in Iraq and Afghanistan………. where were the Israeli troops??

    Were there any and if not why not?

    How can the Israeli PM be so arrogant as to grandstand and have these countries commit troops and lose their lives when Israel does not, for fear of a backlash from Arab States. It is laughable but really sad.

    Why is Homeland security so inactive when this terrorist needs to be arrested, detained charged and waterboarded upon entering our country.

    He will break Obama if we let him. Show up to protest and tell them “who is going to move” with sign telling AIPAC to deal via their Embassies and stop soliciting,bribing and threatening our Congressional Representatives.” AIPAC you are Criminals, stay off the Peoples House.

    And bombard Obama informing him we swallowed his “no” vote on Palestine but this hits our rights as citizens to express our view about attacking Iran with our troops and equipment–“we the people pay for it” Mr. President your decison today may well decide the election.”

    Precisely.They control the polls so that they can make the majority seem like the minority and publish and disseminate their phony results in their media. Polls are run by zionists. Nobody loses sleep over whether “israel” vanishes tomorrow or not – apart from a few insane fundamentalists after a rapture which requires all the jews to die anyway.

    We constantly hear “opinion” polls saying Americans support Israel, want an attack of some kind on Iran, think Israel is just The S%$t, how “Christians” support Israel, etc. etc. Most of these polls are taken by Jewish-controlled firms.

    It’s my opinion that the opinion polls are even more rigged than our elections. Obama probably knows this and might understand what the stakes are, survival of the planet. Will our fearless leader stand up to the forces of evil? Will we see that even stupid Americans are onto the Israelites and their demonic methods and agenda? Will we see that opinion polls are just one more tool of the Jewish police state and that Americans are not really as stupid as the Jews think we are?

    Or are we even MORE stupid than the Jews think we are? Interesting times.

    While the president has Netanyahu in the hot seat–or will it be the other way around–, why doesn’t the president pursue Hillary’s and Congress’ demands about human rights issues by asking Netanyahu to justify the recent reaffirmation of Talmudic halacha by a prominent member of his gov, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, to the effect that the Jews should kill all the goys, generously saving only so many as are needed to serve the Jews, and other similar or worse reaffirmations of Jewish law to murder goys by leading Israeli rabbis within the last year or so, explain why this doesn’t constitute a violation of international law and humanitarian conventions, and then demand Natanyahu justify the clear cut application of such Jewish laws against non-combatant Palestinians. The facts as well as its leaders’ stated intentions suggest that Israel is the genocidal, rogue state and not Iran.

  11. draximus  March 2, 2012 at 5:31 am

    Netanyahu and his warmongering, murdering, racist government are the greatest threat to world peace since Adolph Hitler. The USA, UK and EU need to cut them loose NOW, and listen to their own military experts concerning the possibility of an Iranian nuke. Ignore the pleading of the Israeli bought and paid for lackeys on capitol hill, in the EU and in the British parliament and tell the murdering bastard Netanyahu to go fk himself and his filthy little illegal regime.
