US to Iran: Surrender Dorothy!

“Negotiations” preceded by ultimatum

On a recent trip to Washington, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu laid down the law: America must threaten the Iranians with war if Tehran insists on pursuing its nuclear energy program. We are supposed to take seriously Netanyahu’s threats to strike Iran himself, in spite of the fact that Israel has neither the means nor the political resolve to do so. However, this is not the way Israel operates: their preferred method is to let Uncle Sam do their dirty work, as in Iraq, while they save their resources for aggression closer to home. The Israel-is-about-to-attack-Iran meme gives the Americans cover to take action in the name of preventing a supposedly greater catastrophe. With Israel playing the part of the unhinged pit-bull, Obama’s assigned role is that of the statesman, who is going to give the Iranians one “last chance,” as he put it.

In any case, the results of Netanyahu’s mission were unveiled on Saturday, when the New York Times revealed the opening negotiating position of the US and its European allies in the upcoming talks with Iran: the Western alliance is demanding the dismantling of the heavily fortified Fordo facility and the unconditional surrender of their entire stock of 20 percent enriched uranium.

Or else.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    President Obama never had the necessary support from his own Party to implement his plans. That was obvious when the Progressive took Obama Health Plan and bragging about 50 votes went their way with a national one payer program which died of course and Obama had to come in and help them but not voluntarily. No need to point out that Democrats have as many if no more neocon on the Lobby payroll that Republicans.
    So, it is not Obama we should blame it is up to us to provide him a Congress that will help. Hillary Party Plan was and is the program and Hillary was just as close to the neo-con that McCain supported her campaign. Well we gave ourself a Peace President but did not gave him the weapons he needs instead of a Congressional Ovation for Netanyahu.
    A historical shame for this Congress.
