Obama Promises Bunker Busters To Israel If Netanyahu Delays Iran Invasion Until After US Elections

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Two days ago Obama held a press conference in which he openly prevaricated and disinformed the world about the true nature of his meeting with Israel PM Netanyahu. Today we find what was truly discussed, courtesy of Israel's Maariv newspaper, Spiegel and Reuters, which all tell us that it was a simple case of quid pro quo, namely that Barack Obama would supply Israel with bunker-busters and refueling planes if Bibi promised to delay an Iran attack until after the presidential election. The implication is simple - avoid an oil price shock this summer and delay it until next winter when Obama will be safely in his throne for another 4 years, at which point US citizens can fuel their cars with combustible urine following nights of binging on Everclear in hopes of ending their sorrows with alcohol poisoning, or better yet, all be in possession of the heavily subsidized flaming half ton block of metal known as the Obama Pinto, er, Volt.

Some more details on the latest horse trade from Israel Insider:

The US will supply Israel with bunker-busting bombs and refueling planes in return for delaying a strike against Iran until at least the end of the year, Maariv reported on Thursday. During their meeting earlier this week in Washington, Barack Obama promised Benjamin Netanyahu the latest deep-penetration arms from the US arsenal as well as airborne tankers to refuel strike jets necessary for an Israeli attack on Iran. In return, Israel will agree to not take any action until after the upcoming US presidential elections in November 2012.

 

Although rumors of the possible supply of new bombs and planes began even while Netanyahu was still in the US, Maariv’s claim, based on Western sources, is that supply of the equipment is conditional on postponing an attack. Obama gave Israel neither a green light for an attack, nor a red light, but rather a “bright yellow light,” sources told Maariv, adding that the yellow light is nearly red. Obama told Netanyahu that an Israeli attack, uncoordinated with the US, will have the most serious implications on regional stability and relations between the two countries. Maariv said that sources close to the recent meetings in Washington reported that it will be “difficult, if not impossible” for Israel to ignore Obama’s warnings.

 

Central to the difference of opinions is at what stage of the uranium enrichment process it will become necessary to use military force. According to intelligence reports, Iran has succeeded in enriching 120 kilogram (265 lbs.) of uranium to 20 percent purity. To make a bomb the Iranians require 250 kg (550 lbs) of 90% pure uranium. However, enriching from 20% to 90% is a relatively fast process, meaning Israel may see its window for action closing. According to Maariv, the US is prepared to wait until Iran has 250 kg of 20% rich uranium, but Israel considers the current developments beyond its own red line for action.

Perhaps it is time to make the presidential brent contango hump just a little bigger?

I am so proud and fortunate to live in a nation and under a government whereby decisions of the timing & planning for launching a major military strike on a large country in an oil-rich and extremely volatile region revolves around the date of the election of a fractional reserve bankster puppet (it doesn't matter who gets 'elected,' or 'diebolded' as I like to call it; they'll be said puppet).

There have been moments in human history where justice and reason arose from younger generations and overwhelmed the idiocy of the old guard, but these moments have indeed been too rare, so statistically, you're more likely to be proven correct than not.

I just wanted to add a disclaimer to my statement above: Obviously, there's a lot of 'things' being 'reported' by a few main stream journalistic 'sources' here, that may or not be 100%, unadulterated horse shit, so, caveat emptor, bitchez.

In a separate meeting, Ogolfer Promises 250kg of 90% enriched uranium to its ally Iran if Ahmadineyad Delays Israel Invasion Until After US Elections.

Ahmadineyad was also asked to give the Syrian president al-Assad the same treatment the Iranian regime gave to Colonel Q-daffy.

"We need you to call al-Assad a ruthless zionist mad dog who needs to be put down, just as you did with the Lybian leader", Ogolfer was quoted, as he patted Ahmadineyad in the head.
"Now run along and be a good boy, Mahmud."

History has many examples when countries getting involved in unnecessary wars paid a terrible price

  • The WWI. Czar Nicolas II got involved in the war with Germany. It was very stupid. Russia got the revolution, the Russian empire collapsed, and the entire Nicolas family was slaughtered.
  • The Germans with Sovet help started the WW II. Hitler was dead 4 years later. Until now, germany is still an occupied country. Unfortunately for Germany, Hitler was looking for a peace with England instead of destroying them. It was very stupid sinse historically England was the number one enemy of Germany and its people.

I expect that the USA and Israel leaders will be very sorry for starting a new WWIII. IMHO, after all said and done, Israel will be gone for good.

Epic amounts of uncertainty in this post. Obama may have made a promise for bombs after an election he may win and may honor the secret promise if he does win. All based on info on the state of uranium enrichment from intelligence (???) agencies that did such an astounding job on the whole Iraq thing some time ago. All in an article by some guy who may just be a disinformation mouthpiece.

We are pretty sure that the Obama and Netanyahu did meet.

Your point?  Should we wait until Iran does have these things before we act?

If the goal is to prevent Iran from having these things, does it make sense to wait to act until after they get them.  Come on Totent, simple logic destroys your point - if the objective is to prevent Iran from getting these things.

Simple logic, big return from judgement from the intent.

 Iranians should not get the bomb because they will use it poorly (intent)

Simple logic: it follows US citizens should prevent Iranians from progressing on the path to acquire the bomb.

Simple logic: it follows US citizens should prevent Iranians from starting working at getting the bomb

Simple logic: it follows US citizens should prevent Iranians from preparing to start to work at getting the bomb

Simple logic: it follows US citizens should prevent Iranians from getting the idea of preparing to start to work at getting the bomb

Simple logic: as mind control is not yet that effective, it follows that US citizens should prevent Iranians from being born. Here we have one cause US citizens push their large campaign on unborn being a threat, so prevent them from being born.

Simple logic reaps a lot from an assumption made at start. It is simple logic based on US citizen assumption.

As the others say, the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

Iran's experience is showing how hard it is even with industrial machinery to get sufficient quantities of fissile U235.

Their reactor, if it ever goes online, will produce enough plutonium for a bomb after a couple years of operation.  First refuel they do, reprocess the shit and boom.

Obama first tried to make Isreal behave by making the usual subsidies contingent upon change, but congress squelched that right away. Looks like promising more weapons is the more acceptable method, plus it is a crafty way to get AIPAC on his side.

The Diebold machines have already voted. The results of the November 2012 presidential race have been programmed into them.

Oh, I agree. There will absolutely be an election. They will go through the motions. But it will be an election held largely by Diebold machines with no paper trail. It will be like the unemployment numbers. TPTB will be able to make the election results whatever is needed, perhaps by adding "seasonal adjustments" to the raw vote counts.

Sad/Funny/Pathetic comment from the article:

Obama gave Israel neither a green light for an attack, nor a red light, but rather a “bright yellow light,” sources told Maariv, adding that the yellow light is nearly red.

Cog, I think the sentiment at ZH, going back for some time, has been that all "states" are necessarily terrorist states.  That is the main way you conquer people in the land you wish to occupy (Visgoths and Vandals against the Romans; Americans against the Indians; Americans against the British; etc.)

With that as a given, the only things that really matter are the principles for which you employ terrorism.  You will never really find a terrorist-free state.  You can only find a state(s) that is fighting for the principles in which you believe.  I suppose that, if one had no principles by which they wished to live, it wouldn't really matter what state they picked to reside in.

Now Obama looks like a sap.  He isn't doing what is right for America either way this is cut.

1)  Iran is a threat to our safety, and he is ignoring this threat.

2)  Iran isn't a threat, but he is pretending it is.

Or not a threat evidenced by waiting another 7 months until the Emperor is safely enthroned, THEN 'grave threat' can be taken out.

The partisans will eat this up too, and go off into their zombie ass sheple corners like the useful idiots they are.
