1. Better late than never !.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (11.09.12)
Obama is 4 years late. Preemtivness would have been far better than Reaction because, there will be no Diplomatic solution. And as advisor to Clinton you have made a terrible error regarding former Yugoslavia. The coming Balkan War will show you that. Arn.Sweden.
2. As I have always known
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.09.12)
Obama has a private -- VERY Islamist agenda -- which he will attempt to bring to fruition in his second (and, blissfully, last) term. Obama is completely oblivious to the fact that most Americans have not forgotten the invasion of the United States Embassy in Teheran in 1979, nor have they forgotten the taking of American hostages. Equally, most Americans have not forgotten the failed hostage rescue attempt, and the sight of those mullahs kicking and defiling the corpses of the American servicemen who perished in Carter's folly. The remains of those American servicemen have never been repatriated, by the way. In some ways, Obama's pathetic and deeply insulting attempt to normalize relations with the rabid dogs that rule Iran are extremely helpful to Israel. Israel now knows precisely what it must do. We will go it alone; we will rid the world of that terrorist-supporting regime, and to hell with Obama. I don't think that oil prices and the price of gas will rise, but if they do -- well, perhaps if Obama comes on bended knee, Israel will discount prices of natural gas from our two gigantic natural gas fields. Perhaps. Then again, perhaps not. Obama needs to be taken down a peg or two. He is seriously misreading American public opinion if he tries to normalize relations with Iran. Hubris has always been his fatal flaw.
3. #2 Sarah, per usual I agree with you
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (11.09.12)
Even the dogs in the street know that Iran will be dealt with militarily and it won't be with a lightweight like Obama. Did you see him in crying in front of his supporters yesterday? Can you imagine Bibi doing that? He'd be laughed out of town.
4. To: Noodles at No. 3
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.09.12)
That was one embarrassing moment, I must say. Tears of relief, I suppose -- he has a job for another four years. 2016 will be another story. What does an ex-community organizer do for a living, anyway? Rabble-rouse? The next four years will be very tough for Obama's Middle Eastern agenda. Israel will thwart him at every turn, and there's not a damned thing he'll be able to do about it. Me, personally? I think it's time to annex Judea and Samaria, and repatriate the illegal Arab squatters to Jordan. Or, if they prefer, Gaza. Wonder what impotent Obama will do then ..... perhaps make Haj. He can join all the great unwashed that circle a meteorite ... oh, what fun! For added inspiration, perhaps he can kiss the Saudi king's ring, and beg and plead with him not to raise the price of crude.
5. And the next move in this Game of Brinkmanship?
Tim ,   Brighton   (11.09.12)
The immediate prize of HORMUZ Ahmadinejads Last Hurrah before his cushy retirement Ive read estimates that the Regime would impose 4xTariff Rate cf Panama Canal on all shipping, put a block on all Gulf Kuwaiti and Saudi Oil, trigger a huge hike in oil prices to $ 250pb - overnight transforming Iran into a Superpower and blast wide open all sanctions in one fell swoop Quite apart from a coup and invasion of Bahrein Can they? Will they? Any bets?
6. Nr 4. Dear Sarah -
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (11.09.12)
- I do believe the Leftist Peacecamp will take over the Political Rule of Israel, to the Danger and Suffering for the Israeli People following HASHEM. MMM - ?. Arn.Sweden.
7. # 6 You don't understand Israeli Politics.
Stan ,   Israel   (11.09.12)
Arn will Sweden turn into a desert like the Sahara next year? Of course not. The chances of the Leftist Peace camp taking control of Israel are the same. The only Leftist party in Israel is Meretz and they have 3 seats in the Knesset. All the rest are center or Rightists.
8. # 2 Wow! All fire and brimstone
Stan ,   Israel   (11.09.12)
Sarah you really are a fierce little witch! What have you got boiling in your caldron for next time?
9. # 2 Is Obama really a Muslim?
Stan ,   Israel   (11.09.12)
and does he intend turning the USA into a Socialist Muslim republic as some of those like you think?
10. Obama is a lame duck and he cannot force
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (11.09.12)
Israel, to spare the Iranian nuke program...His reelection has not changed things in a significant way... The clock is ticking... By the way, he is just as bad as ALL American presidents since the Iranian hostage crisis ! COWARDS they had been !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
11. Sarah and Noodles, I would like to submit
Lemmy Caution ,   Alphaville   (11.09.12)
a very "personal" message to Mr. Obama...oh well...
12. To: No. 8
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.09.12)
Spelling lessons. It's "cauldron."
13. To: No. 9
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.09.12)
You tell me. He studied in an Indonesian madrassah, he was president of the Islamic Students Union at Columbia University, his grandmother went on haj, his wedding band is inscribed with a phrase from the Qu'uran -- if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, odds are it's a duck. I don't think he is trying to turn the United States into an Islamic republic -- that would be a long, slow climb going nowhere. I don't buy his supposed conversion to Christianity. It was the politically expedient thing to do -- although he allied himself with one of the most fanatical anti-Semites around, viz., the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. It is impossible to look at Obama's foreign policy decisions and official State visits during his first term and not conclude that he has a private, very Islamist agenda.
14. Nr. 7.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (11.09.12)
Well - Since the word of HASHEM speaks of an Israel covenant with EU, and I dont think the Israeli Religious Nationalists and so called Rightwingers would do such a thing, only the Leftist Peacecamp remains as the Rulers. The Maayority of People has never stod for Freedom. What do you think ?. Arn.Sweden.
15. ***Sarah***at 13...I remember him quoting the
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (11.09.12)
"holy" Koran...! PS You are in top form today ! XXXChris
