Biden’s hair plugs have poisoned his brain.
Way to go, Joe! Just keep those brilliant thoughts and comments coming - American Jews will love ya’ for it!
Thank goodness Biden has all that experience guiding him to make such stellar pronouncements.
Pass this onto McCain and Sarah Palin....
Fortunately, Israel will NOT listen to an ‘appeasement monkey’ like Biden.
Almost every nation has condemned Iran for its’ nuclear program. Nothing like a “go to it” message to Iran from Buden.....SPEAKING FOR OBAMA.
—Bidens hair plugs have poisoned his brain.-—
Biden is an ass.
Ahhh, so the official democrat party ticket, and “presumptive” White House occupant position is we must accept, coddle, welcome, payoff, and be an all around nice guy to a countries governemtn that has vowed to wipe us off the face of the earth with a peaceful, nuclear enrichment program...
You know guys and gals...When the time comes and Israel decides to pull the trigger, you do know that we will have to provide logistical and other serious support for them to pull off the attack...
Remember they barely had enough go go juice to get from their base in Israel to Osirik (in Iraq) years ago to know that one for a loop...Iran is a different ballgame...
And since they will probably have to fly through Iraqi airspace, I am sure our government will have to give it a pass, and pull the wool over the Iraqi officials eyes before and during the attack...I will bet a buffalo nickle that the Iraqis will not sanction, but more likely condemn the attack, if it is succesful or not...
But sometimes, you just have to pull the trigger...
Don’t worry Joe, if you are elected, Iran’s bomb will “disappear soon”
quoted Biden as saying that he opposed “opening a additional military and diplomatic front.”
surprise! surprise! surprise! Total push over isn’t even in office yet, the despots and terrorist have their Democrat ticket to support
Is this an example of the foreign policy experience that Biden has over Sarah???...lol
Time for a Jewish Exodus from the Democratic to the Republican Party.
We need to ask Obama about this. If he’s elected, will this be his administration position, given his VP’s opinion?
Whoever they fly over might remain silent also. Iran is a feared and hated entitity over there.
‘J’lem worried over Biden’s Iran stance’
Sep. 1, 2008
JPost.com Staff , THE JERUSALEM POST
Security officials expressed concern Monday over statements reportedly made by US Democratic vice presidential candidate Joseph Biden regarding Iran’s nuclear program.
Army Radio reported that the Delaware senator was heard saying in closed conversations with Jerusalem officials three years ago that he was firmly opposed to an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
Biden, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations committee, reportedly claimed that Israel would likely have to come to terms with a nuclear Iran. He reportedly expressed doubt over the effectiveness of economic sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic and said he was against the opening of an additional military and diplomatic front, saying that the US had more pressing problems, such as North Korea and Iraq.
The Jerusalem Post could not confirm the report.
Biden has a solid 36-year Senate record of pro-Israel leadership. He has called Israel “the single greatest strength America has in the Middle East” and declared himself a Zionist in an interview with a US Jewish television channel last year, saying that “you don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist.”
Army Radio said that Jerusalem officials expressed amazement at the comments and were wondering which position to take seriously, that of Biden or Obama, who declared last Monday that the world must press Iran through sanctions and diplomacy to stop its nuclear program, so that Israel does not feel its “back is against the wall” and that it therefore has no choice but to attack.
The officials said that they had believed Biden’s nomination would give a feeling of security to the Israeli government, which was concerned that the US would give Israel the cold shoulder regarding the Iranian threat following the end of the Bush Administration’s term.
Nevertheless, reports of Biden’s comments have now cast doubt over this sentiment and officials said that “this feeling of security has been undermined.”
“The position of the vice presidential candidate puts a huge question mark over the degree of empathy the Obama administration would display concerning one of the greatest threats Israel faces,” they said.
