Ah, but remember, the US has to placate and grovel to Netanyahu and the crazy Likud. Otherwise AIPAC will cut off the support of those US politicians who don't. After all, this year the US gave Israel and additional billion dollars in tribute, up from its usual three billion of our taxpayer's money, apparently as an apology for not caving in all the way to Israel's demands.
* Israel is sitting on several hundred nuclear armed ICBMs. It has already reported on its Samson Option which is to take the rest of the world out if it ever looks like it is losing.
* When the NIE was finally forced to be released to the public, that it could find no evidence of any nuclear weapon program in Iran, the Yahoo said, "Then we must strike them now before they can destroy us!"
* Apparently a paranoid monomaniac is to be kowtowed to by all the world and be protected in all his insanity by his partner, the
US Fourth Reich, with its veto power in the Security Council and its huge supply of weapons and ammunition, regularly airlifted to Israel every time they start to run short when killing Palestinians or Lebanese.
* AIPAC is telling its congressional and senatorial lackeys to keep muddying the water and upping the ante until Iran finally has to react. Then Iran will be blamed and bombed. Netanyahu's philosophy seems to be, "Let's you and him fight."
