The Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army General Martin Dempsey said Saturday that an Israeli strike on Iran "wouldn’t achieve its long-term objectives" and would be "destabilizing."
In an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, Dempsey said that taking military action against the Islamic Republic would not be not "prudent."
The US general claimed that the economic sanctions imposed on Iran together with international pressure are beginning to have an effect. “We are of the opinion that Iran is a rational actor. We also know, or we believe we know, that the Iranian regime has not decided to make a nuclear weapon."
Clearly the Obama administration, in contradiction to its stated policy, is going to do nothing to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weaponry. Heck, they are telling us that they do not even believe that Iran has decided to make such weaponry.
Israel is on its own due to the fact that Barack Obama is "in the bag" for political Islam. This feckless administration has compared the rise of political Islam throughout the Middle East to a combination of the Revolution of '76 and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s. It has declared the genocidal Muslim Brotherhood organization, an organization with an historical provenance that goes to Nazi Germany, as "moderate" and is now allowing the Islamist regime in Iran to gain the ultimate weaponry.
Yet, despite this, "progressive Zionists" tell us what a good, good friend that Obama is to both Israel and the Jewish people.
That may very well be the case, but in order to believe it one must shut one's eyes, close one's ears, and stick one's head deeply into the ground.
