America is not a democracy.....It is a dictatorship....Your votes count for nothing and it makes no difference whom gets elected.....Now that staement gos for any and all countries that does not put the choice to the people...If you do not get permission from your populace....then that war should be deemed illegal no matter what....that would be a truer democracy.

Again, Obama is saying "You give up something real, and I'll give up a meaningless promise." I would be surprised if Netanyahu fell for it.
As the Jewish state of Israel continues to pressure the politicians in the United States to take actions against Iran, Iran is taking action to defend itself. One of these actions is threatening to close the Strait of Hormuz. Even the threat of that happening is causing gas prices to increase. If Israel is as successful in getting the U.S. political whores in Congress and the White House to start a war in Iran as they were in getting them to start the war in Iraq, the pain at the pump will be unbearable for the average American.
The Obama administration openly says that an Israeli strike on Iran will cause major problems and difficulties for the American economy. I’m sure Obama would rather wait until after the election to start a war with Iran. It’s much more politically expedient that way.
It’s interesting to note that in the article linked above, Adam Hersh, an economist at the Center for American Progress, said, “If Iran is to retaliate against Israel or other U.S. targets, it’s really unpredictable. It’s safe to say there would be a big shock to oil prices.” ISRAEL IS NOT A U.S. TARGET – ISRAEL IS AN ISRAELI TARGET! The traitors in Washington and the neoconservatives in Israel and the U.S. have done such a complete job of meshing America with Israel they now simply classify Israel as an American target.
If Obama cared at all about America and her people at a bare minimum he would threaten Israel with stopping the over $3 BILLION the U.S. politicians take from American tax payers every year and give to their bosses in Israel. He has not done that. He seems most concerned with putting off an attack on Iran until after the elections.
