Conspiracy thought -
I am starting to wonder if something else is not going on. If Israel has confirmation of a nuke weapon they are not going to wait / debate. They will
do what they are going to do and we go from there. They did it with Iraqs reactor as well as the somewhat recent attack on the Syrian facility.
I AM starting to wonder if these reports / comments coming out of Israel, as well as the security leaks from the Obama Administration regarding the
Iranian issues, are directed at influencing our Presidential elections than dealing with Iran.
Obama pissed Israel off by going down the road of diplomacy with Iran. Obama, by going down the road of diplomacy, has faced criticism at home over
that decision and its been used as a campaign issue for the coming elections. Factor in the comments Obama made at the summit where he was caught on
the open mic dissing Israel's government, his push when it comes to the Gaza / West Bank areas for Israel to be more flexable. The view is Obama does
not support Israel to the level the US is expected to. There is speculation that after the elections Obama would be in a better position if things go
badly in Iran to take action. The same issues cropped up with Russia and our NMD system.
Enter conspiracy thought -
I am wondering if the leaks by the administration are coming from an individual working an agenda against Obama. So far the info we see places Obama
into the position of looking completely lost and cluelees on Iran and by extension in over his head for foreign policy and military affairs.
Pile on Israel and their comments / actions it reinforces the above position while adding the foreign policy / military over his head from a
government who has had long and close ties with the US..
We now have people in the US questioning Obama and his abilities and its being reinforced by a foreign government, which adds weight to the topic.
IF a military confrontation can be forced before the election Obama will be forced to defend his policy / position while possibly fighting a conflict
with Iran all while trying to run for reelection. A scenario where I dont believe he would be able survive.
Getting Romney into office, and we all have seen / heard / read his comments about iran and their program and what his response would be to them,
would fundamentally change the position of the US. A change that would also best serve Israeli.
anyways. no proof of any of the above.. thought I would share a possible theory.
