Skip to comments.Bolton: Israel Will Strike Iran if Obama is Elected
Posted on 06/25/2008 7:10:08 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton believes Israel will stage a raid against Iran's nuclear facilities if Democratic nominee Barack Obama wins the upcoming presidential election in November.
Bolton, often labeled a resolute neo-conservative, believes the Israeli attack would take place sometime between the day after Obama's win and his inauguration on January 20 of next year.
In an interview with FOX News, Bolton says, "I think if they are to do anything, the most likely period is after our elections and before the inauguration of the next President."
Bolton reasons Israel wont be able to hold off a strike on Iran any longer than that given the Illinois senator's intended foreign policy toward the Islamic Republic.
"I dont think they [the Israeli government] will do anything before our election because they dont want to affect it, he says, adding, Theyd have to make a judgment whether to [strike] during the remainder of President Bushs term in office or wait for his successor."

Makes sense to me. Absolute sense if Obama is elected.
Defenders of Freedom and Kulaks all over the world should be making fast plans if BO is elected. I wish there were some place to go.
I hope so. I wish we had the guts to do it ourselves.
I think we should take out all the Mullahs at the same time. Decapitate the whole lot of them.
Gonna have to happen sooner or later anyway unless we want to wait till the Islamofascist fruitcakes nuke NYC and DC or more.
The Muslims are absolutely insane.
John Bolton has a firm grasp on the idea of
...when all hope is lost...
Israel looking out for #1 ... themselves and their very existence ... makes perfect sense
and yet, for some reason, the JEWS in the U.S. will STILL vote Osama, er, I mean Obama.
Watch the NY Jewish community turn out in droves to vote for the Messiah.
Bolton is nuts. In the first place one strike isn’t going to do it. All one strike will do is produce a pissed off Iran with no guarantee that all the nuclear sites were hit and destroyed. Any campaign against Iran will require several days or weeks worth of bombing, something Israel wouldn’t be able to sustain. Second, his claim that Iran would sit back and do nothing once they were hit is absolutely insane. After all the rhetoric coming out of Tehran lately, any leader who absorbed an Israeli raid and did nothing wouldn’t last a week in office. Hardliners would have his head on a stake within days, and the replacement would most likely be worse that the current boob. And then Iran will go after the world, by closing off the oil flow, by terrorist attacks, by any means possible.
Bolton would make a great VP. Not happening, I know, but he’s one of the sharpest foreign policy guys out there.
You think so ?...So Israel attacks Iran, Obambi is elected and no one...but no one.. comes to the aid of Israel because OBambi will run the other way...The allies will weaken and waver if America runs away...How disgusting..
It makes much more sense for Israel to attack now before the elections while it still has Bush backing them, and possibly the Brits and French...
It makes no sense to delay..Iran will not back down, it is inevitable it will get nuke weapons...I respect Ambassador Bolton but sure hope he is wrong on this one..
I keep hearing this... what exactly is that?
From National Public Radio (NPR):
"Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has been visiting countries such as China, Iran and Russia as part of an effort to build a 'strategic alliance' of interests not beholden to the United States. He considers the United States his arch enemy.":
BARACK OBAMA CLIP #1, DATED MAY 18: Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don't pose a serious threat to us.
OBAMA CLIP #2, DATED MAY 18: Iran, they spend 1/100th of what we spend on the military. I mean, if Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn't stand a chance.
OBAMA CLIP #3, DATED MAY 20: Iran is a grave threat. It has an illicit nuclear program. It supports terrorism across the regions and militias in Iraq. It threatens Israel's existence. It denies the Holocaust.
* believes Israel will stage a raid against Iran’s nuclear facilities if Democratic nominee Barack Obama wins the upcoming presidential election in November.*
Between Nov. and mid Jan. Bush is still President and
can back up Israel.
I disagree. One concerted strike may be all they need. The US Navy has the coordinates of every damn thing in Iran, and don’t think for a minute we haven’t shared them with Israel. And how do you know Israel can’t sustain several days or even weeks of bombing?
God help the United States of America if Obama and his vile wife ascend to power.
