Dempsey’s Bombshell: No US Attack on Iran, Ever
INN ^ | Tuesday, August 06, 2013 8:32 AM | Mark Langfan

Posted on 08/06/2013 2:27:55 AM PDT by Olog-hai

On 19 July 2013, Martin E. Dempsey, the Chairman of the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff, delivered an unclassified letter to Senator Carl Levin concerning the risks of US military intervention in Syria. While the letter is was ostensibly delivered to the Senate, it actually delivered the equivalent to ten American thermonuclear bombs hitting Tel Aviv and Jerusalem simultaneously.

While the letter was supposedly written by Dempsey, it was surely approved and intensely vetted by President Obama himself. So while the letter had Dempsey’s signature, it was Obama’s policy. The Dempsey/Obama letter outlined all the catastrophic effects which would occur if the US militarily intervened in Syria to defeat Assad.

However, Obama’s real addressee was not Sen. Levin, but Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. Obama’s real message: Bibi, forget about an American attack on Iran. …

So Mr. Obama is president-for-life now, just like a tinpot dictator in Africa, one of the “stans” or South/Central America? Because, if not, his policies will go the way of the brontosaurus in January of 2017, if not before. The next president might be a Ted Cruz, a Sarah Palin, a Jeb Bush or a Bobby Jindal.

Jeb Bush is a world order guy just like his father and brother. Don’t count on him to drastically change Obama policy. He will hold steady till another Democrat gets in. The Republicans are going in the same direction as the Democrats, just slower.

Around about 1950, didn’t the US issue a memo stating where WOULD be willing to fight communist aggression in the world? And the Korean peninsula was NOT on the list?

How’d that work out?

Israel is now surrounded by nothing but enemies. Those poor dumb bastards! We are about to witness something greater than the parting of the Red Sea.

No surprise here. This is a appeasing, trembling (”and I mean it”) administration.

There is no will, no backbone, no desire to upset anybody who threatens Israel or the West with destruction.

Israel has known all along that this Nobel Prize winning pansy will not attack or even really threaten to attack Iran. The “All options are on the table” threat, repeated 36 times means nothing.

Israel is alone again, just as it always has been. In 1981, Israel destroyed the Iraqi Nuke plant at Osirak and again in 2007 in Syria.

Iran does not care if its people have no food just like the N. Koreans. They will get the bomb or maybe Israel will knock out as much as they can. Obama will blame Israel (which he is dying to do).

How on earth can Obama link the stupid Israeli-Arab (Palestinian) talks to Iran getting the bomb?

Dempsy is in Israel scared sh*tless and Iran is laughing all the way to the Heavy Water bank...

“The poor dumb bastards” are about to be the Arab/Persians for we have never seen an unrestrained Israel attack. All her wars were held back by the UN, USSR, Europe or the USA. Now that Obama hates Israel an will toss her to the wolves, Israel has no puppet master but...God.

Meanwhile...

Palestinians seek improved ties with Iran

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki says President Mahmoud Abbas is interested in developing more open relations between the Palestinian an Iran.

Al-Maliki expressed Abbas' hope to new Iranian Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri during a meeting in Tehran to congratulate newly sworn-in Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on his inauguration.

During the meeting, al-Maliki reportedly conferred to the Iranian official complaints against ongoing Israeli activities, particularly relating to Jerusalem and the al-Aqsa Mosque.

That’s what I am saying. Israel does not draw lines in the sand that are then ignored. When she draws a line, she announces it to the world and then acts on it. No time for BS here. This is big and Israel knew 5 years ago that the West will sit idly by as she always does. Once Obambi was elected the first time, Israel began strategic planning for an attack. Israel knows it cannot rely on a Nobel Prize winning POS.

As the old saying goes, perception is everything. The perception of American weakness is what led to 9/11. Bin Laden was convinced the Americans would never do more than token strikes on empty camps or Sudanese aspirin factories.

And now our enemies perceive us as weak, once again. Of course, this time, they’re right.

Perception is everything and the current perception is this:

1) The US is declining on every front.
2) Obama’s speech to the Arab world from Cairo launched the Arab Spring (Islamic Winter).
3) Obama lost the entire middle east to Iran and Russia.
4) The reset with Russia set the US back to 1979 levels.
5) The US has no backbone to support ANY of her allies.
6) The implementation of Obama’s “Soft Power” is just that, soft and totally ineffective.
7) The “lead from Behind” policy cost us the lives of US diplomats and personnel in Libya.
8) The Obama-Kerry axis forces Israel to negotiate with the PLO who have no intention of making peace.
9) The US cannot handle ANY Problem.
10) The US has lost all initiative in space in exchange fro Muslim outreach.

Should I go on? Jeez!!!!!!!!

I have noticed that, do we have a list of all the 4 stars that have resigned or been re-asigned during the last 4+ years?

When Petraus left tail between legs to take a cush Wall Street job, I knew the military had been destroyed. Where is the honor, where is the shame? I am thinking, don't want to, that they became 4 stars due to butt sniffing and boot licking is that the way it is in the military these days?

Also, the selective application of American aid to the MB in Egypt, while the brave young kids of Iran’s Green Revolution were left to die in the streets.

And let’s not forget the repeated bowing to foreign royalty. That deep bow Obama did, appearing to kiss the Saudi king’s private parts, said volumes about the weakness of this country.

Between major wars, it is a typical degradation of military capability, as the boot-lickers advance and ruin the service. It happens in most countries, not just the US. When a major war erupts, these people eventually go to the wall, but a lot of damage can be done before they are gone.

Muslim POTUS, Muslim DCI, dhimmi military and intelligence.

Would the current U.S. regime be complicit in a nuclear attack on Israel and CONUS.

It's called jihad and Brennan specifically approved it as a legitimate religious tenet.

This is a surreal time when Nidal Hussein is immunized for murdering thirteen U.S. military personnel and wounding an additional three to four score.

There is no outrage from "Republicans"

The Saudis have an endless Honey-do list for their puppet and Putin is pushing more Syrians through the juicer.

Jeb Bush thinks it's his candy ass and Hitlery-Huma in the Potemkin "debates" of '16

It's one world with an Islamo-Communist Oceania, a gangster Putinstan, and the Beijing anthill

This regime is actively (though semi-covertly) allied with those who threaten Israel and the West with destruction.

Dempsey is being honest. My guess we've assured Iran of this as well, to prevent any retaliation in the event of an Israeli attack.

I am gratified that America will not mix in to Syria’s civil war, until they do. As for attacking Iran, it’s probably too late anyway, and WW III is now inevitable. Thanks for all that ‘diplomacy’ and ‘sanctions,’ Mr. O.
