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?

“This is not a game,” Mr. Obama said during a news conference at the White House timed to coincide with Super Tuesday voting in the Republican primaries in a number of crucial states. Mr. Obama gave a staunch defense of his administration’s actions to rein in Iran’s nuclear ambitions and said tough sanctions put in place by the United States and Europe were starting to work and were part of the reason Iran had returned to the negotiation table.

“The one thing we have not done is we have not launched a war,” Mr. Obama said. “If some of these folks think we should launch a war, let them say so, and explain to the American people.”

How is this any different when he launches a susprise strike in Jan 2013, without approval on Congress?

They don't have enough for multiple rounds of attack, which would probably be needed against the deeply buried bunkers at many of Iran's sites.  Additionally, I believe we have new tech that they don't have, though I don't think they have the bombers to deliver the new weapons.  So you'll probably see our B2s over Iran as well, just as long as they hold off until after the coronation.

My concern is they decide to launch everything they got on Dimona. I don't care how many interceptors Israel's got, when you have a few thousands of missiles comming down on the same target, a few will get through. Turning Israel into a nuclear wasteland will be the only goal for Iran after they are under attack...

For the rest, youre extremely naive if you think voting for RP is going to effect any change. Or voting for anyone.

You know, people on this site believe a clown like breitbart was killed by the us government, but somehow an alleged

true threat to the entire MIC (RP) is left alone and healthy for decades? Try and think coldly and clearly about it.


I know, it strikes against the mythical milk you've been sucking down all your life. That you live in some kind of

representational government and that the people can make a big difference if they all just get together and

peacefully vote.




Thu, 03/08/2012 - 14:22 | 2236659's picture

But I don't believe that Breitbart was killed by the government. I had never even heard of him until he died. So one might conclude that you're an idiot in addition to being a coward.

Ron Paul is so obviously the real deal that even this anarchist will be voting for him.

note I said "for the rest"    as I indicated-- you have a reading comprehension problem.

The US government DOES kill people it views as a threat to the MIC, like Danny Casolaro. RP could have been given a heart attack quite easily (see Church Commission) at any point in the past few decades...Incidentally,why is Trygve Olson a senior advisor in the Paul campaign?

Your vote is worthless in a completely rigged, puppet system. Grow up and stop flattering yourself that you're taking meaningful action.

You have a comprehension problem that includes far more than reading. You're not one one hundredth the man Ron Paul is and anyone who isn't insane knows it.

But please feel free to carry on until the men with butterfly nets (MWBN) get a hold of you.

"The Iranian regime is engaged in the pursuit of nuclear weapons and supports terrorism across the globe. I supported S.Amdt.1414 because the sanctions are targeted to the regime's financing of those activities through the central bank and unlike other sanctions, not against the Iranian people.

Rest assured as debate continues in the Senate regarding Iran, I will keep your thoughts in mind. Feel free to contact me again regarding any federal issue in the future.

Who are we to say who can have nukes when we won't let go of ours?? I personally think we are crazier than Iran, we certainly do a lot more killing in the world. With this dillusioal utopianist view of our selves in the world that we can do no wrong and when we kill its "neccesary" and we can decides whoeveer we want has to be invaded even though they have done NOTHING!!!!!!!!

First nobody declared to wipe Israel off the map, second Israel doesn't make any declarations and just does what they want to to wipe out Palestinians at the same time declaring it's will to negotiate some elusive deal (40 years).

Talk is cheap so what if Iran's leader taked some trash, did he do anything about it?? No. We don't talk about wiping countries off the planet we just go do it, business as usual. Regime change is our business and business has been good for a long time. I think you are blind if you don't see a problem with our foreign policy. You are problably one of these people calling Ron Paul an isolationist for not wanting to go attack everybody in the world to liberate their resorces. Calling Ron Paul an isolationist is like calling your neighbor a hemit because he won't come over and break your windows. I don't hate everybody in this country just the blind useful idiots that can't think with an open mind. All the mindless docile consumerists that think nothing bad will ever happen, all of the bought and paid for congress and Senate. People need to wake up, something is really wrong. Our leaders arent leading anymore, they are just pandering to what all the lazy ikids and and stupid consumerists want, which is everything for free. We used to be a county mainly composed of hardworking realists determined to go out and get what they needed to put as little burden on government as possible. I think a lot of American's just want to do whatever is neccesary to live the life they don't deserve because they wanna do as little work as possible to obtain it. Look at our public schools theese days, worse than pathetic. Just a bunch of lazy unmotived ikids that just want stuff handed to them. And you wonder why I take issue with what is going on in this country today?? You think we are on the right track?? Really??

Um...duh.  Even if not a single Jew had ever been killed by a single non-Jew in the entire history of the world, the percentage of Jews of the global population will continue to decrease.

Judaism is a non-proselytizing religion, and Jews have a lower birth rate than many other ethnic groups.  Several of the other ethnic groups are dominated by proselytizing religious belief, too.  

It just so happens that Jews may become a minority IN ISRAEL if y'all Zionists don't figure a better approach to dealing with the Palestinians.

Or is this just another addition to consumption, down to depletion of resources, making so that people who do not 'pull their weight' are seen as a drag on resources to foster great humanity advance?

Wont happen. Iran is not the problem and will not start a war.

In spite of illegal overflights and killings of scientists Iran wont strike back. Imagine what the USA would have done if someone were killing our acientists.

Iran has the right to enrich nuclear material under the non proliferation treaty. They are also free to cancel the treaty and be free of its regulatory requirements, just like Israel, which never signed the nonproliferation treaty.

If israel attacks then it is time to go after zionists everywhere.

Only individuals possess rights. Nations are artificial constructs and have no inherent rights whatsoever. If a nation can claim to have rights those rights actually belong to the individual citizens of that nation and are conveyed to the nation through the willing consent of the governed.

Therefore nations do not have a right to secure their existence through immoral acts as no individual possesses such a right and can not convey that right to the nation.

After the election, when he seizes full dictator power, he can liquidate all opposed to him (NDAA) and easily follow the orders of his Zionist Masters. He would be able to supply them with anything in the arsenal.

Of course, he may also be planning to backstab Israel and allow them to be destroyed. We don't yet know the orders he has been given.

I think it's a 50-50 shot on the seizure of power; Absolute Control of the government would allow him to attempt the installation of a totalitarian state under the Banksters' control.

Liquidation of 20-30 million Americans would match the number outlined by his mentor, William Ayers in the Prairie Fire manual.

"Cuz 'Merca is great!"

He uses fallacious arguement after fallacious arguement, and the only reason he is still in ofice is because people are just as dumb as he is.

And to clarify my definition of dumb:  A straight A grad from Haavad can be dumb.  An econ Prof can be dumb.  Just because they hace a piece of paper on their wall doesn't mean they have any logic in their brains, it just means that they jumped through the bureaucracy's hoops like good little fascist prostitutes.

Why wouldn't you believe it? Didn't Reagan do the same thing, allowing the hostages to languish in Iran for over a year so he could win the election, and add to that tipping the Iranians off to the helicopter rescue mission so all those men could be shot down and killed?

This is exactly what is to be expected.

Nonetheless, Israel will attack Iran alone, without explicit help from the US.

From Wikipedia, "Iran hostage crisis":

On January 20, 1981, at the moment Reagan completed his 20-minute inaugural address after being sworn in as President, the 52 American hostages were released by Iran into U.S. custody, having spent 444 days in captivity.

The refueling aircraft issue seems unclear. Unless the US is going to operate them then the Israeli Air Force would not just be able to take delivery of them and go launch its attack. It would have to train crews to operate them and practice the mission as they will really only have one chance. If the US is to provide aerial refueling for an Israeli strike force then we are part of the attack. Putting Luftwaffe pilots and planes aboard Japanese aircraft carriers would not have absolved Japan of responsibility for Pearl Harbor!

JR's picture reported yesterday that “special operations forces from the U.S. and its allies have been on the ground in Syria since at least December, according to confidential emails from the private intelligence firm Stratfor that were released by WikiLeaks.”

The article, Stratfor Emails: Covert Special Ops Inside Syria Since December, says:

An analyst from Stratfor claimed in December 2011 that officials at the Pentagon clued him in on covert military operations taking place in Syria. ‘After a couple hours of talking, they said without saying that SOF [Special Operations Forces] teams (presumably from US, UK, France, Jordan, Turkey) are already on the ground focused on recce [reconnaissance] missions and training opposition forces,’ the email said.”

The email continued:: “’One Air Force intel guy (US) said very carefully that there isn’t much of a Free Syrian Army to train right now anyway, but all the operations being done now are being done out of ‘prudence,’ it continued. ‘They have been told to prepare contingencies and be ready to act within 2-3 months, but they still stress that this is all being done as contingency planning, not as a move toward escalation.’”

Said Antiwar’s John Glaser yesterday: “Publicly, the Obama administration has retreated from its initial refusal to stay out of the conflict in Syria by agreeing this week to provide direct humanitarian and communications assistance to the Syrian opposition. While the official line remains to keep military options off the table for now, the change in policy could open the flood gates for expanded military intervention."

Said Glaser:  According to the Stratfor analyst, after rejecting the prospect of ‘an eventual air campaign,’ the officials at the Pentagon told him ‘the idea “hypothetically” is to commit guerrilla attacks, assassination campaigns, try to break the back of the Alawite forces, elicit collapse from within.’”

I understand the desire, but it's already way too late.  We have to wait until something breaks--the system is no longer capable of self-repair.

Where will you expect to get enforcement when the branch of government in charge of enforcing the law is breaking it?  What can you do when the branch in charge of creating legislation can no longer exert authority over the executive?

I remember during the days of the Clinton impeachment, I was thinking to myself that the system was going to fail because every President who had strong partisan enemies was going to be impeached for total bullshit.  Turns out I was right about the effect, but wrong about the process: the President can no longer be threatened with impeachment because Congress is afraid of appearing to engage in a partisan witch-hunt.
