The United States has indirectly informed Iran, via two European nations, that it would not back an Israeli strike against the country’s nuclear facilities, as long as Tehran refrains from attacking American interests in the Persian Gulf. Meanwhile, Hezbollah is threatening that Iran could hit U.S. bases in the Middle East in response to any Israeli strike on its nuclear facilities even if American forces played no role in the attack.
“A decision has been taken to respond and the response will be very great,” Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in an interview with the Beirut-based Al Mayadeen television.

According to one report, Washington used covert back-channels in Europe to clarify that the US does not intend to back Israel in a strike that may spark a regional conflict. In return, Washington reportedly expects Iran to steer clear of strategic American assets in the Persian Gulf, such as military bases and aircraft carriers.

Heightened Israeli rhetoric about Tehran’s nuclear facilities, which the West says could be part of a weapons program, has stoked speculation that it may attack Iran before U.S. elections in November.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has urged world powers to set a “clear red line” to convince Iran they would prevent it from obtaining nuclear arms.

But Netanyahu’s cabinet is divided over the wisdom of attacking Iran, and Israeli officials have dropped heavy hints of a climbdown strategy, under which Netanyahu would shelve threats of an attack now in return for a stronger public pledge from President Barack Obama on conditions that would provoke U.S. action in future.
Israeli officials reported an unprecedented low in the two nations’ defense ties.

    Apparently Iran doesn’t believe that Obama will win in November …… Interesting. Obama is a failure, the US and Israel have built a strong bond and his Muslim upbringing is interfering with that and so many of his other duties.

  • I like most of your posts Jan, but this one is a bit deceptive. You seem to be implying that Hezbollah and the government of Iran are one and the same, which is not true. Hezbollah are not nice people of course, but they only have political power in the Gaza strip, which they “won” in a suspect election after Gaza became semi-autonomous. I would compare Hezbollah to the IRA- a terrorist group that rehabilitated its image by entering political discourse. Everyone assumes that Iran supports Hezbollah, and so do I, but they are not a political extension of Iran. It is wrong to attribute a statement made by anyone in Hezbollah to any government, legitimate or not.
    I am not saying Iran isn’t a danger to the region and the world (they are), but the primary exporter of Iran’s foreign “terror-aid” is the Pazduran. This group has no idealogical debate inside its ranks, and hasn’t wavered in its mission to destroy Isreal since they kicked the Shah out of Iran decades ago. Not being involved in politics has been an advantage to them. Not crying for attention by giving video addresses to Al-Jazeera every month has also benefitted this group. All of the better known groups in the region should be measured by their closeness, both financially and idealogocially, with the Pazduran.

    Obama pledges are not worth much. Israel or any other allied nation would make a serious mistake relying on obama to cover its back.

    The DemocRATS New Bill of Rights:

    Amendment 1.
    Congress shall make laws denying rights to religion, except if the Bible has been sanitized, gutted and deemed legal by NAMBLA in all 50 states.

    Amendment 2.
    A well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state. The right of the people to keep and bear arms is appropriate only if arms are defined as squirt guns, lamp shades, whoopee cushions and Anna Nicole Smith reruns. All other weapons are to be banned.

    Amendment 3
    No soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war. However, any Governor, sane or insane, moral or corrupt can seize your property and home at any time if he smells an emergency or epidemic. Perhaps this will be the next solution to low state revenues.

    Amendment 4.
    People have the right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, except for the following: 94 year old grandmothers in wheelchairs at airports, gun owners, pro lifers, Bible thumpers, hunters, truck drivers and border patrol. All clones, revolving genders, actors, communists and flag burners are exempt from search and seizures.

    Amendment 5.
    No person shall be held to answer for a capital crime unless presented by a peer group of lawyers currently recovering from herpes and who have been married at least 6 times. Also, no person shall be subject for the same offense twice unless of course he is a twin and the jury pool can’t tell them apart. Triplets shall be charged at least three times.

    Amendment 6
    In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial. The accused also gets 10% royalty rights on the tell all book, 7% royalties from airings on all major networks, 5% airings on reruns with Chinese and French subtitles, and 3% royalties for posing for tabloids. Since 50% of all accused felons go on to become a congressman, kickbacks to all union heads and ex-interns will be distributed equally by the association of lonely mathematicians, ALM.

    Amendment 7
    All law suits against tobacco companies start at 100 million, all casino suits start at 75 million; All obesity suits start at 65 million; All wrongful birth suits start at 50 million; All alien hate speech suits start at 46 million; All “I didn’t get a date to the prom and now hate women” law suits start at 42 million; “I have the legs of a Tasmanian Wombat and no one will hire me” 30 million; I stuck my tongue on a frozen flag pole and the class left me standing there, 27 million; and finally, I share an IQ with 13 cousins and am too stupid to know who to sue, 22 million.

    • Raymond, I think you’ve got it right…..too Bad others can’t read the Constitution and Bill of Rights to figure all this out. If you were my age, you would already know this
      What really concerns me tho, is the elderly – those who went thru the Depression or lived just after, Always Blame Republicans for it. Bless their hearts, they are “die hard Democrats” and you cannot change their minds. Unfortunately, most of them don’t use the Internet to find out what is really going on and those living on a fixed income couldn’t afford it anyway – those who are living on $600.00 or less Because they paid into Social Security for years and it was basically “stolen” from them by the government…(supposedly using the money for other things – just because it was there).
      And you are right about Taxes…when this Country was being formed, people were only supposed to be Taxed in Time of War.
      So, yes….you have it right.

    The Ten Planks That Are Destroying Our Country – COMMUNIST MANIFESTO.

    1. Abolition of private property: The foundation of this nation was ownership of property. The settlers came here to insure private ownership of land and our Founding Fathers made it unlawful for government to own land except for the ten square miles of Washington D.C. and such as may be needed for erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, Dockyards and other needful buildings. Today you don’t OWN your home, car, farm or most property. You are just allowed to use it as long as you pay your property taxes, buy a car license, pay for building permits and get permission from the zoning commission. Individual OWNERSHIP is only by virtue of government. To USE property we must be in accordance with law and subordinate to the powers of government.

    2. Heavy Progressive Income Tax: I believe all Americans understand the IRS. What most of them don’t realize is that we didn’t have an Income Tax until 1913. Before that year Income Taxes were considered unconstitutional.

    3. Abolition of all rights of Inheritance: We now have Estate Taxes, Inheritance Taxes, also called the Death Tax. Many a farm and small business could not be passed on to the next generation, but had to be sold in order to pay the estate taxes. Many times the IRS forces the sale, as it did in the case of the Roy Rogers Museum sale.

    4. Confiscation of property of all emigrants and rebels: Government seizures, tax liens, private land under Eminent Domain, the IRS taking property without due process and even taking “suspected” drug money from anyone carrying large amounts of cash is nothing but government confiscation of private property

    5. Central Bank: The Constitution called for Congress to “coin Money and regulate the Value thereof,” but since 1913 the Federal Reserve Bank has taken over that duty. The Federal Reserve is a “private” bank that sets interest rates and creates money out of thin air.

    6. Government control of Communications & Transportation: Today we have the Federal Communications Commission, Department of Transportation, Interstate Commerce Commission and the Federal Aviation Administration. You are not allowed to drive your car without a license.

    7. Government control of factories and agriculture: Our government has gained control of the banking industry, finance, automobile production, energy and health care. Department of Commerce, Department of Interior and the Bureau of Land Management, Department of Agriculture; all of which control land use.

    8. Government control of Labor: The Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the minimum wage law control all aspects of American businesses.

    9. Corporate Farms, Regional Planning: Corporate Agriculture now controls markets and prices of farm production. We now have Planning and Reorganization and zoning all across the nation.

    10. Government control of Education: State and Federal Departments of Education, National Education Association, Outcome Based Education, No Child Left Behind; all paid for with tax dollars.

    Karl Marx stated that these ten planks in the Communist Manifesto would be the test whether a country had become communist or not. Is America a Communist nation? Study the manifesto and the laws that have been passed by our Republican and Democrat politicians, and “you determine” if we are or if we are not a Communist Country.

    Father – Daughter Talk

    A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so
    many others her age, she considered herself to be a very liberal
    Democrat, and among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of
    higher taxes to support more government programs, in other words,
    redistribution of wealth.

    She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch Republican,
    a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had
    participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that
    her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what
    he thought should be his.

    One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes
    on the rich and the need for more government programs. The
    self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the
    truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking how she
    was doing in school. Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she
    had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that
    she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying,
    which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew.
    She didn’t even have time for a boyfriend, and didn’t really have many
    college friends because she spent all her time studying.

    Her father listened then asked, ‘How is your friend Audrey doing?’
    She replied, ‘Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy
    classes, she never studies, and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. But she is so
    very popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She’s always invited
    to all the parties, and lots of times she doesn’t even show up for
    classes because she’s too hung over.’

    Her father asked her, ‘Why don’t you go to the Dean’s office and ask him
    to deduct a 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend Audrey, who only
    has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that
    would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA.

    The daughter, visibly shocked by her father’s suggestion, angrily fired
    back, ‘That’s a crazy idea. How would that be fair? I’ve worked really
    hard for my grades! I’ve invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work.
    Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I
    worked my tail off!’

    The father slowly smiled, winked, and said gently, ‘Welcome to the
    Republican Party.’

    • I really like what this man pointed out to his daughter. Only if everyone could understand what this father made his daughter understand, then America could possibly become the America I grew up in.
