Israel war likely with Iran

Obama interferes in Israeli elections. Does he also use taxpayer money to pay for it?

Israel and the United States are preparing for open war with Iran, with joint anti-missile exercises this spring or even this month. The only question left to ask: will “exercises” become an all-out conflict?

US troops stationed in Israel

Last September, the United States Army, for the first time, stationed troops permanently in Israel. Specifically, the Army, with help from the Air Force’s Air Mobility Command, shipped an X-band radar system and the people and equipment to support it, to Navatim Air Force Base, in the eastern Negev southeast of Beersheba. The report in Defense News says that more than a dozen C-5, C-17, and similar aircraft took part in the airlift. US troops have held joint anti-missile exercises with troops of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) before, but have never permanently assigned troops to Israel.

NOTE: Representative Ron Paul (R-TX-14) protested, two months later, that the US government was setting a precedent that young Americans would automatically go to Israel to protect that country. Whether this shipment did, or did not, prompt Dr. Paul to make that protest, no one has ever asked him or tried to figure out in any other way.

Then on December 20, 2011, The Jerusalem Post reported that Lieutenant General Frank Gorenc USAF, commander of the Third Air Force, was in Israel to discuss a massive anti-missile exercise. The Post said that this exercise would take place in the spring of 2012. But Global Research of Canada reported two days ago that another Israeli media source (which it did not name or link to) said that the exercise would take place this month. The exercise will use some of the best anti-missile defenses that the United States has. This includes the Army’s Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system, and the US Navy’s AEGIS system. The Americans plan to use these together with missile defense systems that Israel already has: the Patriot, the Arrow, and the Iron Dome.

The presence in Israel of such a high-ranking American general officer is significant in itself. The IDF has a unified command structure, with all three services (ground, naval, and air forces) under one set of general officers. Furthermore, the IDF has only three general officer ranks, and only one man, the Chief of Staff, holds the highest rank. So technically, General Gorenc could outrank any Israeli in the field whom he works with, and would be equal in rank to the Israeli Chief of Staff.

Tensions with Iran

Flag of Israel. A target in an Iran war?

The Islamic Republic of Iran has, of course, threatened to close the Straits of Hormuz if the European Union and other international bodies do not lift sanctions against that country. Recently the USS John C. Stennis passed through the Straits toward the open ocean, and now the Iranians have told the US Fifth Fleet not to return to the Persian Gulf. The US government, for its part, says that the Fifth Fleet will go where it pleases, whatever Iran says about it. US diplomats are also talking intensely to Israeli government officials, trying to persuade them not to attack Iran on their own.

Meanwhile, the American blogosphere is buzzing about US troops going to Israel. Many bloggers expect war to break out, and Americans to take part in it. Most of them are not happy about it.

A New Jersey Tea Party activist told CNAV to expect war to break out this May. Nick Purpura, of Wall, NJ, said that the man now holding office as President, Barack H. Obama, might provoke war to improve his flagging electoral fortunes.

He knows that his numbers are in the tank. He has also left a sour taste in Jewish mouths, as if he had offered them pork to eat. But he also knows that no US President has ever lost re-election in the middle of a major war. So he is getting ready to start something with Iran, just to show how tough he is and to try to win back the Jewish vote.

Author Mike Evans, head of the Jerusalem Prayer Team, sees the anti-missile drill as a sign of open war between Iran and Israel.

At that point all of the pieces for a serious joint strike against Iran to halt their nuclear weapons program will be in place. I do not know that open war will happen in May, but this is one of the clearest signals I’ve seen yet…

    the idea that Barack Obama would start a war with Iran in order to win reelection is one of the most deliciously absurd things I’ve heard in months.

    • Terry A. Hurlbut says:

      Well, Obama did promise the moon to those who “don’t wanta study war no more.” That was worth several million votes. Those people still believe him after he yanked our troops out of Iraq too soon, with predictable results. But that does not change prior history. It doesn’t change Obama’s low standing in honest polls. It doesn’t lessen Jewish buyers’ remorse at a President who definitely is not kosher. (Nor make him any less desperate to make himself kosher.) And it doesn’t make the first permanent deployment of United States boots onto Israeli ground, or the cream of US anti-missile defenses to Israel, any less significant.

    More war? Haven’t we figured out that the real terrorists reside in Washington DC as they ignore their oath of office to obey and protect the Constitution?

    Ron Paul is absolutely correct…. the middle east is tired of our pissing in their backyard for over the last 5 decades. I am sure that we would be upset if the picture were reversed.

    If Iran had the power to sanction us, as we are doing to them, I am sure that we would consider that an act of war.

    Their nuclear program is just a huge red herring as they are decades behind. They know that they would be annihilated if they actually used a nuclear weapon as do all the other countries that already have had them for years. They may be fanatics (religiously), but they really ain’t stupid.

    In my opinion, the bad guy is Israel and it’s time that we let them handle their own affairs. They should be sanctioned if they don’t stop their war mongering and human rights violations.

      And whose human rights has Israel violated?

      You do yourself and your cause little credit by denying, entirely, the existence of external enemies. You should be figuring out how to recommend that a free society fend off external threats, not insisting that external threats don’t exist just because that worldview would make your task simpler.

      They have a working nuclear primer. They have multiple deep underground nuclear testing and uranium enrichment facilities. Coverts from the Mossad and possibly CIA have already infiltrated the less secure sites and caused a lot of damage, but there are some locations that they cannot get to. Iran’s government is run by Mahdists who believe it is their religious duty to wipe out Israel and the USA to bring about the appearance of the 12th Imam and the world Islamic caliphate. Ahmadinejad and Khameini don’t care about talking. They have sworn to kill all of us. Wake up.
