Sorry, its your problem

Feb5, 2012 Obama's Dilemma: how to dissuade Israel from bombing Iran without alienating pro-Israeli voters in November. So, the Obama admin has told Israel that the U.S. won't support an attack on Iran... quietly (247)

March 3, 2012 "Netanyahu is expected to publicly harden his line against Iran during a meeting with Barack Obama." ( •_•)⌐■-■ Well, that might stiffen into into a.... (⌐■_■) sticky situation ((443)

March 10, 2012 When Netanyahu gave Obama the Book of Esther as a gift, the message was only slightly less subtle than if he had constructed a massive neon billboard with the message "Mr. President, please help me destroy Iran before they destroy us" (235)

March 21, 2012 Experts: "rising demand for oil around the world and supply concerns stemming from Iran sanctions are driving prices at the pump" (152)

June 14, 2012 Romney-bot installs Mid East policy firmware. "Policy toward Israel will be guided by Israeli leaders; second, on Jerusalem, he'd do whatever Israel tells him to do" (103)

July 29, 2012 Romney to Israel: "If you guys want to go ahead and bomb Iran, I got your back" (293)

See? Fartbongo made us look weak and pathetic! Vote for a REAL man, one who will show the world who's boss by bombing the shiat out of it.

Yup, vote for Romney because there are plenty of countries in the Mid East yet to be invaded on the behest of Israel.

Beats me. Their GDP is $242.93 B, I believe our aid to them is $3B so presumably forever (??), but I am not sure of your point or its relevance to this article....

How about Israel fighting its our own damn war for a change? Why don't you take all those high-tech weapons we have given you and $2 billion a year we've still give you and go knock yourselves out?

Leave America out of this. We are too fighting Sunni/Shia proxy wars for the Arabs to help you.

Israeli government: a bunch of whiny biatches afraid of something harmless and willing to sacrifice their principles in order to destroy it. No wonder they get along with Republicans so well.

Well, the problem is that one of the two people who is in the running to be our next President has promised again and again that he'll give Israel carte blanc.

/won't tell you which one
//I'll surprise you
 
2012-08-18 10:42:24 PM  
They didn't say they're not afraid of the Americans. But you can see from their behavior that they're not afraid."

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw a bunch of Iranian Mullah's at 31 Flavors last night totally dissing America. I guess they don't take America seriously.

Um, I think that's the point of this article. You realize "Why don't you take all those high-tech weapons we have given you" that's exactly what Netanyahu wants to do.

Though farker Lionel Mandrake, naming himself after a character famous for trying to avoid a nuclear world war doesn't listen to me, simply sticking your fingers in your ears and saying la la la go do it yourself to Israel is precisely the action that many people think will bring the US to a nuclear world war.

Why would i want a Zionist puppet like Mittens in the White house instead of an American Patriot like Barack Obama?

You want to really piss off Ahmadinejad? Take all the money we'd normally spend killing his citizens and instead airlift in a bunch of schools and hospitals and water treatment plants and highways and a couple of high speed interwebs. That'd piss him off real good.

Israel must be afraid of them too. I don't see them fighting them right now either. they still want big brother to go fights they pick.

There's something strange in the world when there are two states having a political conflict in the middle east and the one we're supporting is the oppressive theocracy that's officially an apartheid state instead of the oppressive theocracy that's actively trying to improve the quality of life for its poorer citizens.

//Then, I guess there's not really a right choice there.

The choice is based on who best protects our oil. Israel has been a useful traffic cop for the US since 1967, so that's our theocracy.

/That said, our invasion of Iraq could be interpreted as a massive show of support for Iran. I believe there was something about arms in the 80s as well.

They have no reason to truly be afraid. The US does not have the capability to occupy a country as large and powerful as Iran. Hell, we can't even accomplish that in Afghanistan. Iran has all the terrain issues Afghanistan does, plus a well organized military in place, and covers about 4 times as much area. The worst thing the US could do to Iran is drop a couple bombs, which would do nothing except piss off the international community and further isolate the US from it's traditional allies.

Our common interests with Israel ended with the Cold War. Israel is a stinking, fetid, rotting albatross around our necks.

Sure - that's why U.S. aid to Israel has gone down dramatically since 1990. Why send massive amounts of aid - far, far more than anyone else -- to a country with which we are at odds?

This argument is much easier to make than stating a lack of common interests.

Middle Eastern dynamics changed drastically in the early 1990's.

Two reasons we're supporting the apartheid state instead of the one that at least pretends to care about its second-class citizens:

1) We need to be buddy-buddy with Israel so that when (not "if") that temple in Jerusalem gets destroyed, Jesus™ will return and all the good Christians in America will get raptored into Heaven™. This offer for a free ticket into Heaven™ is valid for all people who practice American Evangelical Fundamentalist Christianity.
2) anybody who does not fully, unconditionally, unquestioningly and unwaveringly support Israel in every last thing they do is an anti-semite who wears full SS regalia and chisel swastikas into the sides of synagogues every chance they get; likewise, anybody who lays even an iota of blame on Israel w/r/t their conflict with the Palestinians is a Nazi-cosplaying, swastika-carving Jew hater. There is absolutely no grey area between the two extremes of "loving Israel more than America or your own family" and "hating Jews with the fury of a thousand suns" whatsoever.

You can thank those New American Century cockgoblins and AIPAC for all this.

That's only true as long as we have a sane, American patriot in the White House. Zionist Mormon Fundy Romney has already publicly stated that he will do whatever Israel tells him to do, rather than functioning primarily as the POTUS. An open commitment to commit treason.
