Will the "October Surprise" be war with Iran?
Coach is Right ^ | 5/8/2012 | Doug Book

Posted on 05/08/2012 11:10:58 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax

In early March, the Israeli newspaper Maariv reported Barack Obama had offered Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government the latest in “bunker busting bombs” along with advanced refueling planes in exchange for the PM’s promise to delay any attack against Iranian nuclear facilities until 2013. It was a clear attempt by Obama to bribe the nation of Israel into refraining from war until AFTER the November election. (1)

Naturally, Regime spokesmen denied a story so uncomfortable for Obama, especially in light of his already dwindling support among even the most dependably liberal of voting groups—American Jews. And the New York Post came to Obama’s indirect defense using the words of Netanyahu himself as the PM said war with Iran was not necessarily unavoidable. “The only way to deter Iran [is] to advocate carrying out a serious military strike…” wrote the Post of Netanyahu’s stated belief that Iran would back down if it believed an attack inevitable were the Islamic nation to continue its current course of action. If Israeli leadership itself believed war could be avoided, why discuss bombs and planes, after all! (2)

Moreover, it would be unthinkable that Barack Obama should place the well-being—in fact, the very EXISTENCE—of the Jewish State a distant second to...

What if Obama had plans of bombing Iranian nuclear facilities himself and his offer of military hardware was simply meant to keep an unsuspecting Nation of Israel on the sidelines until the American attack could be carried out! …
Nope. Not unless Obama wants the Hezbollah sleeper cells to suddenly spring into action, that is.

No, it will be war in our streets, if they have their way.

An attack on an Islamic nation initiated by The Won?

Not a chance.

Uh ... no. Why on earth would he alienate what’s left of his base by going to war with another middle east country? That would be political suicide for Obama.

Absent clear and convincing evidence that they were about to set off nukes in either/both Israel and the USA there is no chance of this. Oil would immediately shoot to $200 bbl and gas would go to $8 a gallon and throw us into economic collapse. Not a good re-election strategy IMHO.

His “surprise” will be a “crisis” of a domestic nature so he can, “for the good of the nation” postpone (read cancel) the election and establish matial law.

Neat. Clean. Deadly.

I think the October surprise will be a form of domestic terrorism that is short on killings, but long on the national psyche.

I'm thinking that it will be a bomb in Washington DC, at an off location away from politicians. My guess would be the National Archives, where the original copies of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution are stored.

The destruction of these national treasures will foment such outrage, that Obama can dash in with sweeping emergency powers with little outrage from the people, who will still be reeling from the loss.

You are not the only one with this belief. I agree with you. I think he will start a race war and then call in the UN. NO ELECTION.

The planned re-election of Obama, revolutionary style

Let’s not forget, Iran has more than twice the population of Iraq with 3 times the area. And they haven’t had to suffer through years of devastating sanctions like Iraq.

We/Israel can bomb them, but a land invasion would be beyond ugly.

When have the Republicans EVER pulled an October surprise. I know the Democrats have, but I cannot remember a Republican one.

Well, baraq is quietly releasing terrorists from gitmo, quietly funding al queada with our tax money, and welcoming the terrorists into the White house.

Looks like he is setting the table for a domestic terror event. Probably coordinating the timing.

Last week of October.
And oh dear, he will have to suspend the elections until the crisis has passed.

Never let a crisis go to waste. Especially when they create the crisis.

Wouldn’t put any thing past this gang of trash.

The Revolutionary Guard will likely try and assassinate him if they think this is true. Can’t picture Biden charging into that attack.

Maybe “O” will coerce some lunatic to set fire to the ____________________. (Fill in the blank...example: Reichstag Building)

Then he can call the perp a Republican who is part of an immense conspiracy. Then he can come to America's rescue.

No. Big Media is busy pushing THE WAR IS OVER, LET’S GIVE THANKS, can’t turn around and gear up again so fast, even if it is for their beloved racist freak.

Hm. Interesting. I'll keep this on file in my head. Nevertheless, there will be some form of "October Surprise,"

No, That is WHY they are pushing the whole meme, Afghanistan and Iraq are over. Then after a few months of peace when Willard weakly attack Obama for being “weak on foreign policty” he will attack Iran with nothign but airstrikes and say “See! I ams tough on Foreign policy”.

I doubt it. It could always start going badly. Further it opens him up to attack of starting yet another war. If the Iranians are able to block the Strait of Hormuz and/or tag a carrier, how does that help him? I just don’t see him taking such a gamble.

Now if Iran attacks first, that’s a different thing. It would be more like he had no choice, reluctantly having to hammer back hard.

"He" has nothing whatsoever to do with our elections-not their conduct, not their regulation, and not the calendar.

He ESPECIALLY has nothing to do with the choosing of Electors for President and Vice President, which is a reserved power of State Legislatures.

He could give such an order, but he would be under arrest within five minutes. Take a deep breath.

Most of the leftists I know that are aware of the Iran situation think Obama is forcing war with them. So actually going to war with Iran would lose him votes.

October suprise is not Foreign Policy.

October Suprise will start in July with the approval of the Keystone Pipeline and how Obama in his genius was just doing his due diligence.

This will be coupled with the new route for the pipeline creating a cleaner environment which the greenies will hail as miraculous.

Add in the collusion between the Whitehouse ans Wall Street, the speculators drive the price of oil down which Obama then uses as a hammer on the oil companies and showing the American people that America can be productive without the energy companies gouging us.

Did I fail to mention the jobs report which would put the hundreds of thousand of new jobs in before the pipeline even has a starting date?

Actually ... if I was Iran, I could get some real-@ss-kicking hits in ... before I was completely annililated ...



Iran's Sleeper Cells have always been the key issue ...

when the day comes when the West has them all pre-tageted for "instant" arrest ...

we will strike Iran ...

but not a minute before then ...

Bull.

ozero has already demonstrated that he can act above the law and NO ONE with any power is stepping up to stop him.

His very presence in the White House is proof enough of that.
