This is entirely within the realm of possibility. Obama has shown time and time again a total disregard for Israel and it's security. This agreement offers nothing for Israel's security, instead granting Iran greater security from Israeli preemptive strikes on clandestine nuclear sites. All the while, Obama is giving Iran greater room and resources to get it's nukes; which it has stated will be used against Jerusalem.


The Obama administration feared an Israeli airstrike on Iran more than it feared Iran building a nuclear weapon, and that's why it pushed for a deal to reduce sanctions against Iran, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton writes in The Weekly Standard.

"Buying time for its own sake makes sense in some negotiating contexts, but the sub silentio objective here was to jerry-rig yet another argument to wield against Israel and its fateful decision whether or not to strike Iran," Bolton writes. "Obama, fearing that strike more than an Iranian nuclear weapon, clearly needed greater international pressure on Jerusalem."

Israel doesn't need permission to still strike Iran. In fact, Obama has done unthinkable with this secret deal. He's brought together Israel and some ME countries (namely Saudi Arabia) in a common hate for this Iran debacle. I got news for you. This will come back to bite Obama and allies that have signed on, right in the arse.

"Israel and Western-allied Gulf countries led by Saudi Arabia have formed an unlikely alliance in their opposition to yesterday’s deal, joined together by shared concerns about a nuclear-armed Iran and the Tehran’s growing regional influence".

Israel's security is Israels problem not Americas. Bolton is lying out his ass if Israel wanted to start a war with Iran they would do it they don't need Americas permission they have had no problem bombing other places. Bolton is just another useless Israeli mouthpiece here in the states that thinks America should do whatever Israel wants.

Painting a rosy picture on a rotten canvas,Bolton is just mouthing off to save the US governments face, as the entire might of the western banks have failed to cave in the will of the Mullahs..........with all the pressure, and all the sanctions it is still a "Mexican Standoff"
Bibi is slobbering for a war.........but the Iranis have out manouvered him again and yet again....poor beeb

I think in this case permission is irrelevant, its a question of capability. Short of launching a pre-emptive nuclear strike of its own Israel lacks the capacity to deliver a knockout blow to the Iranian nuclear facilities itself. This is why they have not attempted to do so and have repeatedly tried to get the USA to do it for them.

It needs a weapon like the GBU-57 MOP and that needs a bomber platform bigger than any the IDF possesses (that is publicly known).

Israel is the superpower on the ME block. How did it get nukes in the first place? No one wants Israel to use them. How did it acquire nukes again? Netanyahu has had a serious itch to attack Iran since it announced it wanted to develop nuclear power, something every country has a right to do.

While vigilance is to be exercised wisely, what is happening now is that the rest of the world is participating in something that could bring peace and a reduction or world tension. No participants are delusional. However, I really think that some of the pressure is being taken off Israel and borne by the participants if Israel would only consider that. Israel does cry foul a whole lot.

All in all, I see this as a positive endeavour.

Israel is just mouthing off and spitting out the sour grapes.

The plan is to infiltrate further and destroy from within.

Mossad will inflict damage on the ground, just like they have in the past.

CIA and other intel agencies are in on the plan.

This 'deal' is just window dressing for the holidays.

There are other concepts being batted around... one being a glory moment in the midst of the wretched economic environment and freefall of Obamacare from something so great to something so squalid.
And, of course, it would have been one thing to launch a punitive airstrike on Syria but quite another had the middle east erupted between Jerusalem and Tehran.

Regardless of his politics or abilities, Obama can't help but see the Asian Pacific heating up, knowing full well that should it light up, it would make an Iranian-Israeli conflict look like a pee-wee football league contest. Moving assets to that region is bordering on critical right now and with our industrial plant in China and our military spending hanging from a cliff... well, leaving the Persian/Arabian Gulf is not a matter of simple choice.

Yup, that's a handbasket we're all riding in... and that flickering reddish/golden light in the distance? That's something most of us have always hoped didn't exist.

It is not only what Israel wants. This is what Saudi Arabia and majority of US politicians also wants. The big game is to create a Wahhabi/Salafist Sunni region as the so called true face off Islam.

Irak was attacked because of it. Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, Syria and Iran is the same plan. US is being used as a mercenary force to feed corporate and royal Saudi Arabia interest. Saudi Arabia is also very active in spreading the Salafist cult by giving money to churches in western countries.

The whole "nuclear" issue is nothing more than a smokescreen anyway. The goal of Israel is destroy Iran completely as they won't bow down to Israeli dominance in the region. If Iran gave up all of it's nuclear power ambitions tomorrow, Israel would still be looking for another excuse to bomb them (or get others to bomb / invade them) within a week.

After more than 2 decades of Israel constantly bleating that Iran is only months away from acquiring a bomb, people ought to be thinking that maybe it's BS. In fact, I am willing to bet that everyone in power knows this already, but they keep parading the tired old story time and time again anyway.

Sorry but trying to palm this off on the Saudis just won't work. Israel has been pushing for America to go against Iran for decades. Yes the Saudis are throwing money around but they have no where near the influence that Israel has over our bought and paid for congress. Congress has been bought by the Israeli's.

When was it ever proven that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons?
When did they state that they would nuke Israel upon getting them?
Why would Israel need anyones permission now to attack someone?
Why should Obama care about Israel security from nuclear power plants? Do they come alive at night?

So many questions.

So what I find odd is that was Syria farther along than Iran in its nuke capability in 07? There were reports as early as 03 that Pakistani help was being used to create nuclear weapons and then in September of 2007 the IAF launched an unannounced attack.

Was this a precursor and a veiled threat to Iran to stop what they were intending then to do which is possess nuclear weapons?

Iran just got off with not even a wrist slap. They beat us again and KErry comes home with his tail between his legs...as did Syria when there was no strike. The US is not projecting the way it once did. The question should be why now? I know that the Israelis can take care of themselves but foriegn policy likes this makes us look weak and our troops still there more vulnerable.

Not a good analysis of holding up Israel being held up from preemptive strikes.... Israel is not part of the deal, has not been & did not sign on. It put them in a "hair trigger position", any little bad news out of Iran & their Nuclear efforts...GOOD, BAD OR INDIFFERENT.... Israel will have to react... and not in a small way it must be devastating.... THEY WILL FORCED TO NUKE IRAN in order to survive... because everyone else in the area will be gun shy of taking on Israel... Israel has nothing to gain by not loading every NUKE they have & put them in the air... THE COLD WAR SECNERIO ALL OVER AGAIN.... except this time the whole world is in it.....

Possibly thinning of the herds ... and Well heck it make money why not!!!!

WHAT A TOTALLY INSANE WORLD WE ARE LIVING IN!

I believe the first country to use a nuke (in modern times) will find themselves more vilified and struck down faster than Germany was...the only difference is, most of the world will be against them. That is why I don't think anyone would ever dare use a nuke. With the exception of Israel.
