I bet that the Israelis are smart enough to realize that nothing, absolutely
nothing, that Obama says can be counted on as being truthful, or that actions
promised will actually take place.Worse, his understanding of the
geopolitical situation in the middle east is questionable, and his dedication to
the interest of any party (even the United States itself) is very uncertain.
The only commitment he really has is to his own power and image.Too
bad, because Israel really needs a strong, reliable ally they can count on.
And, they are the ONLY real ally we have in the region, so they deserve much
better than they are getting from the current administration.
He also promised to not rest, until every American that wanted a job had one.
He also promised to close Guantanemo. He also promised to not raise taxes one
dime on those of us making less than $250,000. He also promised to the president
of everyone and be bi-partisan. He also promised that obamacare would reduce
costs. He also promised to quit smoking.He is also giving money to
the Muslim Brotherhood that has sworn an oath to wipe Israel off of the map. If
my friend promised to protect me at all cost, and at the same time was arming my
enemy. Is that person really a friend?
If I am Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu I am not feeling terribly comforted
with Barack's pledge of support based on the events of the past 4 years.
Israel is going to have act on Iran on its own because Barack will never do
anything other than make speeches. Iran could launch a nuke at Israel and I
doubt Barack would do anything and I think Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
knows that. We are giving America/Israel hating Egypt free F-16's and tanks
no questions asked and the Muslim Brotherhood is laughing all the way to the
bank. OBama is a paper tiger and all the countries in the middle east know it.
They have zero respect for the man and they certainly don't fear him.
Obama is doing the only thing that should be done ... listening. That's
precisely what the Israelis and Palestinians will not do for each other.
Just plain annoying.... these connents are just politcal noice.Why
don't they mention also that it was a republican (John McCain) who went to
Egypt to make sure the Egyptuan military now under the control of the Islamic
Brotherhood get another round of new planes and tanks from the US. It was
actually the administration that was balking at it... it was a Republican that
flew to Egyt to make sure it happened.Why isn't it mentioned
that Isreal's main threat, Syria, is truned in on itself, and that the US
played a large part in disupting a regiem that was one of the chief promotors of
global terrorism. Same goes for Lybia and Tunisia. France went on to snuff out
the same elements in Mali.These things you pretend to "know"
are just more political drivel... you "know" the US would not respond to
a nuke attack by Iran.... based on what? Has this government in the last 4.5
yeasr backed away from one fight... No. So what is your "knowledge"
based on?Just for once, take the tin foil politica hat off and look
for the positive.
I hope Israel will trust President Obama and his promises just as all the
American people do.
blue deviljudging by all the typos and misspelling, you must of been
pretty upset!you really think Syria, and not a nuclear Iran, is
Israel's main threat? you really think BO has been forceful in
his foreign policy, with all his scraping, bowing, and apologizing?oh mypeople make judgements based on what they see others DO, not
as much on what they hear others SAY. So when they doubt BO would do anything
in response to a nuclear attack on Israel from Iran, they have a strong basis
for that beliefyou ask if BO has backed away from one fight and you
answer NO. I guess you are unaware that N. Korea and Iran are both developing
nukes with impunity. but I guess to you that means BO has not backed away from
those fights.Just for once, take the tin foil politica (sic) hat off
and look at reality.
@Lost in DC"judging by all the typos and misspelling, you must
of been pretty upset!"Oh, the irony. There is no phrase in
English reading "must of been"...it is "must HAVE been".But don't let that stop your good old fashioned anti-Obama rant.
reCalifornian#1@94131I hope this comment is based on sarcasm. Barack
Obama has zero credibility with the American people - the man's words are
nothing more than demagoguery at its worst.
He is an empty suit. Period. Disgusting.
I would have liked to hear Obama telling one of the most repressive regimes in
the world (Israel) that their $billions are cut off unless we see more efforts
towards peace and less bulldozer action.
We get it, sir. REAL men send men to invade other places, right? Then they sit
back and fill their speeches with words like "libuurty".
Can't believe the words coming out of his mouth.
Happy heathenLets see how peaceful you are when people are shooting
rockets at you daily. Would you stand for Mexico or Canada shooting rockets
into the US daily? come on.
Re: Californian#1@94131That could be the most "tongue in
cheek" comment I've ever seen posted here.Re:
HappyHeathenIf Israel is one of the most "repressive"
regimes in the world it is only because they are surrounded by enemies who are
the MOST repressive regimes in the world.
How many times has Obama been untruethful? Why send F-16 fighter jets, and two
hundred new tanks to Israel's enemy the "Muslim Brotherhood"?Can't trust the words coming out of Obama's mouth.
Problem is,--we don't get accurate information from the press on what is
really going on.To be really well informed, we most broaden our
view, and thinking.
