U.S. and Israeli troops held “their largest-ever joint military drill” Wednesday in preparation for the coming assault on Iran.
“Make no mistake. The U.S. is 100 percent committed to the security of Israel. That commitment drives this exercise,” said U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Craig Franklin in a news conference at a training site near a beach in the Tel Aviv area.
Perhaps he understated the commitment. President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney mentioned Israel at least 31 times (depending upon who’s counting) during Monday’s foreign policy debate in Boca Raton, Fla. It seems now that America’s foreign policy is Israel’s foreign policy.
If any country was mentioned as much as Israel, it was Iran. Never mind that all you’re being told about Iran’s designs and nuclear capabilities are lies, as I noted here some time ago. But Americans have bought the lies. Iran is the enemy of Israel and therefore the enemy of the United States. Iran is the bogey du jour.
America’s empire surrounds Iran. Romney thinks Syria is Iran’s path to the sea. His understanding of liberty is as sound as his knowledge of geography. But Bibi Netanyahu has Romney’s ear. Not so much Obama’s, but the Jewish lobby controls the cash and, therefore, controls Obama as well. Though Obama seems to understand Mideast geography, his appreciation for liberty is worse than Romney’s, if that’s possible.
The United States used its air power and al-Qaida to topple Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi. It is using al-Qaida to try and topple Syria’s Bashar Assad. Make no mistake; regardless of which sock puppet wins the election, war with Iran is inevitable. It’s all part of the plan for the New World Order, and the elites have their designs on Iran’s oil fields.
There will be an attack on Iran. The question is: Will Russia and China sit back and watch, or will they join the fray?
