'Obama To Tell Netanyahu US Gearing Up For Iran Strike'
The Times of Israel ^ | February 25, 2013 | By Yifa Yaakov

Posted on 02/26/2013 7:48:41 AM PST by Fennie

When he visits Israel next month, US President Barack Obama will tell Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that a "window of opportunity" for a military strike on Iran will open in June, according to an Israeli TV report Monday evening.

Obama will come bearing the message that if diplomatic efforts and sanctions don't bear fruit, Israel should "sit tight" and let Washington take the stage, even if that means remaining on the sidelines during a US military operation, Channel 10 reported. Netanyahu will be asked to refrain from any military action and keep a low profile, avoiding even the mention of a strike, the report said, citing unnamed officials.

1 - I doubt he has a message bearing any resemblance to the statement above.

2 - Even if it were true, reporting it kind of closes "the window," don't you think?

He’s telling Israel to stand down the way he told the Marines at Benghazi to stand down.

IMO, makes far more sense for Israel to attack than for the US to do it. We know the Israelis will accomplish their goal whereas we don’t know if Obama would.

If he doesn’t do it before Friday he won’t have a military to do it with according to all the sequester hype.

Yes, Israel, remember the pious Jews of Safed and just "sit tight"! What a container-load of chicken manure!

I believe it’s more likely Obozo is gearing up for a strike against U.S. citizens.

Blah blah blah. Iran-Israel war is imminent.

But the first sentence gives the lie away — Obama would never do anything like this, because it helps Israel and could put Iran away once and for all.

The perpetual war in the Middle East, where nothing is ever really resolved, must continue.

If I was Israel, I would tell obama that they don't want him or the US military anywhere near Israel, or Iran for that matter. any interest obama has in that region has ulterior motives, almost certainly to the detriment of Israel.

If I we netanyahu I would not listen to a word the userper makes...If Obamma tells him that it is only because Obamma knows Iran will have the bomb before then and will use it. He is buying Iran time to get ready...our POS POTUS is a traitor without a clue...

Even if this report is accurate, Obama puffs himself up and says whatever he wants because he plans to take the phone off the hook anyway.

There are alpha males (e.g. Netanyahu) and then there are those who don’t even rate a letter, but rather a zero.

Netanyahu has got to be aware that the leadership of [what’s left of] the Free World has fallen upon his shoulders.

"Netanyahu will be asked to refrain from any military action and keep a low profile, avoiding even the mention of a strike, the report said, citing unnamed officials."

Too many "unnamed officials" don't have enough generations in the USA behind them. They betray both our USA and our ally by releasing information for our enemies. Their very recent ancestors floated over here from fascist nations and pushed them to go to college and get that American money without regard to our earlier American distinction (pre-1800s, anti-European morality).

Leave the politics of Europe behind. Become real Americans.

We really do not need to comment on this all of us know of all the great leaders, Netanyahu is not stupid and will not do what the idiot Obama has to say..

NK helped Iran, who was helped by Venezuela:

There are NK-derived Iranian missiles TODAY on the southern middle edge of the Paraguana Peninsula in Venezuela, near the insersection of route 4 and a road going north.

You can see it on Google Earth.

Why not attack THAT...?

Obama to Achmedinejad: "Make sure you test a bomb before June. That way we will have an excuse to take the same pusillanimous approach we have perfected with North Korea, and let you off the hook completely."

US Gearing Up For Iran Strike...

What's this? I know the guy is really into golf... and I'd imagine really in favor of bringing the game of golf to Tehran and Iran... but, bowling too?

Israel should "sit tight" and let Washington take the stage

Oboma built up the radical muslim armies around Israel for a reason - Because Israel is Obomas REAL target.

Don't fall for it Israel! Don't trust him! He'll promise to protect you militarily if you do as he says, but it's a lie. Prepare yourselves! When you see him, the abomination of desolation, standing in your temple - flee! Don't even go back for your coats!

My thoughts exactly.
What is this magical “window” that will open “in June”, if not the projected time-frame Obama and his “experts” see as being the likely time Iran will be ready with a nuke?
This is just a not-so-carefully-crafted piece of obfuscation,
set, like all of Obama’s policies, into some future never-land where there will be enough time allotted to both the Obama Administration AND Ahmadinejad to weasel their way out of a point of no return-—by June, it will be “discovered” that there is nothing really to fear from Iran at all, and probably never was. As such, Obama’s strategy is just a way to forestall and subvert any action against Iran by Israel.

A bit out of character for Obama to strap on a pair and do anything about anything.

Nevertheless, it’s long past time that something definitive was done about Iran’s nuclear program.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is an intelligent man, and I’m sure he will place an appropriate amount of faith and trust in Barack Hussein Obama’s promises. The survival of Israel depends on making the right decision on this one issue.
