U.S. and Israel 'considering
joint aerial strike' against
Iran's nuclear facilities
using bombers and drones

Daily Mail (UK), by Eddie Wrenn

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/9/2012 12:51:50 PM

America and Israel are considering a joint surgical strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, it was claimed today. Foreign Policy magazine reported a source 'close to the discussions' and said the strike might compose primarily of bombers and drone support. The suggested attack is expected to last no more than a few days - or even just 'a couple of hours', the magazine said. Such a strike could be carried out without civilian casualties, and would set back the Iranian nuclear program by back many years. Benefits of such a strike would be regional, Foreign Policy says.

Valerie Jarrett hasn't made up her mind yet.

Well obama does need a wag the dog. Hope, unless it's entirely necessary, Bibi doesn't do it...

Obama needs this.
This is the 'wag the dog' Obama October surprise.

Obama will try to tip over the chess table.

The failure of the Obama weeks of lies about the deadly Benghazi debacle leaves Obama desperate.

FTA -- The source, said to be in favour of the strike, said the Israel-led assault would be 'transformative' and would end up 'saving Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, reanimating the peace process, securing the (Persian) Gulf, sending an unequivocal message to Russia and China, and assuring American ascendancy in the region for a decade to come.'

Now that's one magical strike. The source, code name plugs, forgot to mention the strike would take place the day before Obama's next debate.

Warning to Bibi.

This is nothing more than an election ploy. Such a strike will not simply end the standoff. Iran has too many facilities dug in too deep for a single strike to significantly damage. Iran will most certainly retaliate.

If the attacks do result in an obama win expect absolutely no American support from November 7th forward.

In other words this administration will help you poke a rwalyy pointy stick into a very large hornets nest but once the hornets swarm forth, you're on your own.

You want to judge the sincerity of the Wons commitment? Schedule the raid for November 10th. Watch how the won reacts, if he is adamant it happen a week earlier, leave the room, you're being set up.

If Bibi is smart, he won't allow this to happen until AFTER the election.

Obama is NO friend to Israel.

Hopefully Bibi can hold out until after the election. I`m sure he`d feel better about the whole situation knowing Romney will be taking the helm.

Never gonna happen. If he plays this game, he will lose votes. The Islamic constituency (vital to Michigan) will stay home. The code-pink types will stay home, NoI will stay home, and the jew-hating, truther freaks that latched on to Ron Paul's campaign will stay home. This could cut out 20% of the votes for Obama and put California in play.

Just noise. Such a raid wouldn't do much, and would be 95% US bombers. Unless we just lend a few to Israel for the month.

Any major action against Iran has to be as much about regime change as about nuke targets.

Israel would be better off doing it on their own. There would be a far better chance of it surprising Iran. Keeping the politics out of it is much more likely with no US involvement right now.

This is based on an unnamed source 'close to the discussions'. It is being considered.

Not much for Bibi to entrust the existence of his country and the lives of its citizens.

While many (including me) think a joint strike might be the best approach to stop an Iranian bomb, beware the constraints that would be placed on Israel if it were to happen. Bibi would need a reliable partner in such a dangerous move - a partner far more reliable than NerØbama.

The refueling logistics for Israeli bombers are troublesome. Barky's only play is creating a chaotic situation as a excuse to 'postpone' the elections until a better time.

Israel can't trust Barky but they see a Mormon Eagle Scout in the distance....riding over the hill.

I'd like to see Israel simply use their own Nukes because they will need to take out Iran's ability to retaliate as well as cripple their centrifuge farms.

There are newer and better Nukes waiting to replace the ones expended.

Big war---good.

Long war---bad.

Simple, blow a huge hole below ground at the nuke facilities, then blow a path between the nearest water supply lake to the facility...let the water fill up the facility. If they try to pump the water out, blow up their electricity supply.

Another target will be the govt. leadership, the military and all weapons stockpiles. I'm sure the Israelies know where all of them are!

May and up being the best alternative.
but Bib should refuse any joint action before the election. If you do it then do for military not political motives.

You don't have to erase underground facilities although that is the idea. If the facility cannot be entered or exited or supplied it may as well not exist.

But I don't see it as a one day or one week deal. Air superiority and surveillance to blast anything that moves or can even be seen near the facility would be needed for some time. Israel can't do it.

If this was really going to happen we would not be reading about it until a week after it happened.
Just more Obama BS
Another scenario is
Both parties secretly agree to attack, US launches its weapons and planes and at the most crucial minute Israel stands down and states we have no knowledge of this plan, asks what are you doing Obama?

Book: White House scrambled
after Joe Biden´s gay marriage comments
Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 11:18:17 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
