Skip to comments.Panetta asks Israel for patience on Iran
Posted on 08/01/2012 6:10:58 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that U.S. statements of solidarity with Israel and its assurances that military strikes are still an option aren't working to convince Iran that the West is "serious about stopping them" from developing nuclear weapons.
Standing with a visiting Leon Panetta, Netanyahu dismissed the U.S. defense chief's counsel to give diplomacy more time to halt Iran's nuclear program.
"Right now the Iranian regime believes that the international community does not have the will to stop its nuclear program," Netanyahu said at the prime minister's residence in Jerusalem. "This must change, and it must change quickly because time to resolve this issue peacefully is running out."
Earlier Wednesday, at an Israeli defense site south of Tel Aviv, Panetta stood beside Defense Minister Ehud Barak to declare that the Obama administration is serious about the possibility of eventually resorting to military force against Iran. But he said all non-military measures must be exhausted first.

Zer0 won’t act until there’s a mushroom cloud over Tel Aviv...and then he’ll surrender.
“Patience” with the country whose sole objective is your destruction. Nothing like living in a bubble, eh, Panetta?
“Right now the Iranian regime believes that the international community does not have the will to stop its nuclear program,”
Netanyahu.. Sadly, they are right.
Chamberlain asks Czechoslovakia for patience on Germany.
Obama administration is proving it hates Israel.Stalling is the game.
The answer had better be “NO”!
What’s to convince? The West is not serious about stopping Iran.
They won’t target the Little Satan before the Great Satan.
Should it look like Obama is going to go down in flames, I would not put it past him to launch some attack (yes an "October Surprise") on Iran to lift his standing as a tough guy and real "CIC."
And his base, though they will go balistic, won't go anywhere else and this could sway some moderates as well as even some RINO Republicans who we know there are some who voted for this useless socialist last time.
You mean, something like attacking a pharmaceutical factory in Sudan . . . ?
translation: I’m still trying to corner Barry about this in a moment where Valerie Jarrett isn’t around.
Please be patient with the psychopaths in Iran as they develop weapons of mass destruction capable of killing everyone in your entire country. I understand that they don’t mind if they die too, nor do they mind if their sympathizers in your country are all killed. You must understand that patience is essential, and you have not demonstrated enough patience yet. Even waiting patiently for the nine years since the IAEA first documented the most recent incarnation of Iran’s nuclear weapons program is not enough. What if ten or eleven years of patience would be enough for them to peacefully change their minds? Don’t be deceived by the generous compensation that Iran has refused or the sanctions that Iran has ignored, it’s just a matter of time before these people who seem to hate you and seem to want every Jew on earth dead realize that it would be better to agree with our strongly worded reprimands. Remember, deep down, they don’t hate you any more than I do.
Barack Hussein Obama
Netanyahu needs to consult with YHWH and hear with his heart. Ignore Panetta and anyone else who contradicts what is to be done.
Don’t bet the farm on that one.
