Israel: Nuke Sanctions on Iran Not Working

Drudge gives this the red font which I assume means 1) this is aggressive non-diplomatic language that suggests a shift to warplanning or 2) it's a slow news day and Drudge needed a Slammer on his front page.

I don't know myself.

While in Nicosia, Netanyahu also addressed the Iranian nuclear threat, saying the sanctions imposed by the international community on the Islamic Republic "are not working."

"Iran is the most irresponsible force in the world. I hope the sanctions will have an effect, but so far they have not. We are dealing with a regime that violates every resolution and has no respect for international standards," the Israeli premier said.

"Iran's race towards nuclear weapons should concern the US and every other country. Nuclear arms in the hands of such a regime is a cause for great concern to the US and Israel."

I don't know. Netanyahu says this every few days. Is this something and I'm missing it?

(I expect there will be an attack. But I don't see how this adds to our information.)

1 Sanctions have never worked.

2 I'm leaning toward option 1.

Iran's actions yesterday, in which they gave Europe the finger and loaded fuel rods into their reactor, tells me that Israel's going to have to do something soon or it will be too late.

6 It's all very uninformative. What I never get in this situation is "who is Israel talking to"? Allies(?) And they certainly wouldn't bother with establishing a casus belli anymore, would they? Why? Lots of question marks. Maybe it's just what politicians do.

8 Doesn't matter if the Sanctions are working now. To little, To Late. And what does working mean anyway? Hurting Iran in pocket book-yeah probably-so what? is it stopping Iran from developing a bomb-HELL NO. Hell no, no matter how many times some obama lacky says it is. If Israel attacks and i think they must, it will be before the Nov Election. And the sooner the better. All hell will break loose, but all hell is gonna break loose anyway, the only question is now or later. And why is it a headline today: Slow News Day

19 In diplospeak "cause for great concern" generally means "we are going to nuke your ass in a few days if you don't quit it." That's why it's a big deal.

I do agree that this isn't precisely new though. I mean, really, is there anyone in the world in touch with actual reality that doesn't think that Israel is going to do something about Iran sooner rather than later? Mainly because if Israel waits,there won't be a later.

20 I see this is further paving the way from a PR standpoint to justify (or at least tamp down opposition to) an Isreali strike. All that's needed now is for some confirmation statement from O's camp that the sanctions aren't working as "effectively" as they'd like and Isreal gets a green light to rain thunder on Dinner Jacket.
Or it could just be Bibi assuring the US that that they will take care of business when the time comes, whether Obama has his back or not. Either way I'd be very surprised if there isn't some kind ofIsreali military action within the next 6mos.

obama's natural instinct would be to come down on Israel like an elephant on a ant. If Israel is gonna strike, they MUST do it BEFORE the US Election when obama would have his hand's tied by the Jewish Vote and the Pro-Israel American Electorate. Yes the Jewish Vote and money still matters and the Electorate is still pro-Israel. Strike NOW and Strike HARD

42 Actually, the interesting thing is that Netanyahu said it in Nicosia. An Israeli Prime Minister had never visited Cyprus before, despite the fact that it is a 30 minute plane ride from Israel.

Why not? Israel didn't want to piss off the Turks, who control northern Cyprus (and the northern part of Nicosia).

Guess Israel is less concerned with pissing off the Turks.

Bibi's responsibility is the Israeli State and People, so, while he would take Obama's request into account, it will not be whetheran attack will be helpful or unhelpful to Obama but how much cooperation Bibi can count on during and after the attack. If he thinks Obama is going to be unhelpful anyway, such a request will be ignored. If he thinks that Obama will be helpful if appeased, then he may comply if doing so will not be otherwise harmful to Israeli interests.
Bibi's a grownup, so he will put aside his own dislikes and pride when making plans, I hope.

That's part of it, but not the end-game IMHO.

I think they want to be THE power in the Middle East since they were shut out of their opportunity to strengthen ties to Europe. Israel-bashing is just one tool to accomplish that, along with undercutting Iran in Syria.

The $1.8 trillion figure was included in a December 2008 memo
authored by Christina Romer (the incoming head of the Council of
Economic Advisers) and obtained by Scheiber in the course of researching
his book.


"When Romer showed [Larry] Summers her $1.8 trillion figure late in
the week before the memo was due, he dismissed it as impractical. So
Romer spent the next few days coming up with a reasonable compromise:
roughly $1.2 trillion," Scheiber writes.


As has now become the stuff of Obama administration lore, when the
final document was ultimately laid out for the president, even the $1.2
trillion figure wasn't included. Summers thought it was still
politically impractical. Moreover, if Obama had proposed $1.2 trillion
but only obtained $800 billion, it would have been categorized as a
failure.

The entire world knows that Israel's been fidgeting nervously, ready to attack Iran for years. The only thing holding them back is the lack of certainty about how the United States will react.


Or, perhaps more accurately, what's holding them back IS the certainty of how the United States will react. They just want to hold off 'til the US elections are done, and hope it goes well for them.

88 See, the thing I am thinking is that since they get so much support from us he has to include Odumbasses reaction as part of his responsibility.

How much will the support mean if Tel Aviv is a smoldering wreck? And if G-D forbid obamasse get's relected he'll look more favorably on Israel? Strike and strike NOW

89 Consider Obumbles' treatment of Bibi in the last 4 years and get back to me on that.<<<<<

And that's the other side of the thought experiment. Bibi wants this bastard out.

92 I think they want to be THE power in the Middle East since they were shut out of their opportunity to strengthen ties to Europe.

Yep. Thanks, EU. You guys let the Greeks in the club, but not the Turks?

This is all your fault. Have fun with the riots and the defaults.

85 A grizzled old guy once imparted this bit of wisdom: "Honor the threat." I took that to mean if someone opposed to your peace, your bodily security, your breathing is out there making noise, don't assume it's all bluff and bluster. Respond with intent to neutralize the threat.
Posted by: Count de Monet at February 16, 2012 02:04 PM (4q5tP)


Without context, I would take that to mean "don't make threats you don't intend to carry out," but your interpretation makes sense too.
Both are good pieces of advice.

Also, Sarah Palin is just as bad while not as good as the Moon Nazis.

According to the apocryphal hadith, he will be born of a "Communist African and an underage girl who will abandon him in the state of paradise."

Whatever that means.

Not a good analogy. Not sitting astride the world oil reserves. As bat shit crazy as the North Korean Leadership is, it is probably a tad more sane than the Iranians.

The Ziombies have twisted their knickers into another knot to justify bombing Iran.

115 The only thing different about this comment from what Bibi normally says is that Iran's actions "should concern" the US and all nations rather than "are a concern," which indicates to me that perhaps the Obama administration has told him to back off, or that if he strikes at Iran, he's more or less on his own,not that we would prevent him necessarily, but that we wouldn't go out of our way to block for him either.

Because that's the only important thing in this election.
