According to the establishment media, Obama will resist Israeli pressure to immediately attack Iran in response to its imaginary nuclear weapons program. Last week, during an Israeli Channel 2 news interview, Obama said Iran will be capable of producing a nuclear weapon in a year and hinted action against the undocumented program will come within a year.
Instead of concentrating on Iran during Obama’s visit scheduled for Wednesday, the United States and Israel will settle on a common goal – escalating the war in Syria and doubling up the effort to take out the al-Assad government and replace it with a government more amendable to Israel and the United States.
A “Buffer Zone” Pretext
Israel is considering a full-scale offense inside Syria in order to establish a “buffer zone,” a prospect we suggested on March 7 after a shadowy terrorist group kidnapped United Nations peacekeepers near the Israeli annexed Golan Heights.
“It remains to be seen if Israel will use the latest development in the Golan Heights to push beyond the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force buffer zone established in 1971,” Infowars.com reported on Friday.
Israel will claim Syria is transferring missiles to Hezbollah in Lebanon to make its case for stepped-up attacks inside Syria.
In January, Israel warplanes attacked a convoy it said was moving Russian-made missiles to the Shi’ite group, a move green-lit by the Obama administration. Binyamin Netanyahu’s government said it would strike again if it believes additional weapons transfers are occurring.
Israeli preemptive strikes inside Syria will reportedly dominate the talks between Obama and Netanyahu. In the past, Obama has said the United States will intervene to stop Syria from using chemical weapons or transferring them to Hezbollah.
In order to personalize the supposed Syrian threat, Israel claims the United States is directly threatened. “These missiles are not just a problem for Israel,” said an Israeli official. “They include [anti-ship] missiles, and who has the biggest navy in the Mediterranean?” – a clear reference to the United States.
A New War in Lebanon
In addition to targeting Syria, Israel is looking to start a new war in Lebanon, one that will rival the 2006 conflict.
“What I hear over and over again from Israeli generals is that another war with Hezbollah is inevitable,” a western diplomat told The Guardian.
The commander of the IDF’s 91st Division, Brigadier-General Hertzi Halevy, told journalists in July that a new war against Hezbollah is in the works.
“The next war will be different, and therefore we should stop it as quickly as possible, in order to make things easier for the home front. This means carrying out a very strong attack against Lebanon, and the damage will be enormous,” a senior officer in the Northern Command told Haaretz.
“The Wall Street Journal reported and said that the bulk of the drone attacks are signature attacks,” Paul said. “They don’t even know the name of the person. A line or a caravan is going from a place where we think there are bad people to a place where we think they might commit harm and we kill the caravan, not the person. Is that the standard that we will now use in America?”
Newspaper reports have identified signature strikes as the predominant type of drone attack. And because this type of strike targets behavior, such as clustering in groups, rather than individuals, it is prone to kill civilians.
“Responding to reports that President Obama is considering signing as many as nineteen executive orders on gun control, Republicans in Congress unleashed a blistering attack on him today:
“President Obama looks down the list of all of the powers that are legally his and he’s like a kid in a candy store,” Rep. Stockman said. “It’s nauseating.” (NewYorker)
Today I saw that Romney claimed that the president will lie during the debates. I thought I would look at their records on Politifact.com to see how reliable each candidate has been. Out of the statements analyzed by Politifact, this is the percent of things they have said that have been on the spectrum of true and false, for Obama and Romney.
This isn’t perfect, since Obama has been rated more frequently than Romney has. Still, it’s interesting to see how often each candidate gets rated in each category.
