Skip to comments.Obama seeks to head off Israeli ground invasion in Gaza
Posted on 11/18/2012 11:03:03 AM PST by ColdOne
"Israel has every right to expect that it does not have missiles fired onto its territory. If that can be accomplished without the ramping up of military activity in Gaza that's preferable," Obama said. "That's not just preferable for the people of Gaza. It's also preferable for Israelis, because if Israeli troops are in Gaza, they're much more at risk of fatalities or being wounded."

This pretends Obama is making some overt effort, which would involve action or at least a policy announcement.
Instead, Barack is giving advice you might expect from your Grandmother:
“You ought to look at a peaceful resolution, before you go marching in there.”
As though Israel is too stupid to consider this....
This is simply Obama mouthing some words, before he goes off to play for a week.
And Barry Benghazi would accomplish that how? /sarc
Gaza & Egypt started this.
Israel will finish it-—AGAIN. My money is on Israel.
He also knows that Israel knows he won’t do anything FOR them so they are done listening to him.
Israel may be “on their own” on the planet earth. But they have the highest power looking over them.
(sorry Zero. That’s not you!)
An Israel that is not held back by anyone is a Israel that will do what is needed to protect it’s self.
I suspect Zero will nicely be told to FO.
More meaningless words from our foreign policy disaster of a President.
No, you are wrong. Gaza is an Iranian surrogate. At the root is Iran, not Egypt.
There might be some radical Egyptians along the way, but not the government.
You have been effectively duped by Iran for concluding precisely what they wanted you to believe
I hear what you are saying, but recall Morsi has been cuddling up with Iran lately, also he was in Gaza just the other day.
Morsi also stated right after he was elected that the treaty of Camp David was no longer going to be honored. Remember, Morsi IS the Muzzie Brotherhood.
The MBH is Iran since its inception.
Obama knowingly doing something proactive, whether constructively or destructively, is an accident of the purest form. If it doesn’t involve how to cheat an election and pander to blacks, hispanics,Jews and white trash EBTers for their votes, he isn’t in the ballgame.
His entire senior government is a collection of affirmative action nobodies, perverts, political has beens, idiots (guess who this is?), and rabid ideologues more comfortable trying to enslave these evil white Americans who in their racist eyes deserve it.
My guess is the Bebe will just ignore him, rightly so.
I think he doesn’t like the idea of Israeli ground forces going in and capturing those weapons. It might be inconvenient for people to know what they are, and be able to start tracing where the came from.
Heck of job there Barry!
OK Obama. Now shut up and go away.
Heck of job there Barry!
