Israel wants the United States to attack Iran

Patrick J. Buchanan:

Bush may be sending signals, but the Israelis are preparing for war. The London Sunday Times reports that Israeli pilots have been making the 2,000-mile run to Gibraltar to train for strikes with bunker-busting nuclear bombs on Iran’s heavy water plant at Arak, the uranium hexaflouride facility at Isfahan and the centrifuge cascade at Natanz.

Israel angrily denies the report. But, on Dec. 30, retired Gen. Oded Tira, who headed up all Israeli artillery units, burst into print with this admonition:

As an American air strike in Iran is essential for our existence, we must help (Bush) pave the way by lobbying the Democratic Party (which is conducting itself foolishly) and U.S. newspaper editors. We need to do this in order to turn the Iranian issue to a bipartisan one and unrelated to the Iraq failure.”

“Bush lacks the political power to attack Iran,” writes Tira. Thus, Israel and its U.S. lobbying arm “must turn to Hillary Clinton and other potential presidential candidates in the Democratic Party so that they publicly support immediate action by Bush against Iran.”

“The Americans must act,” Tira concludes. “If they don’t, we’ll do it ourselves … (and) we must immediately start preparing for an Iranian response to an attack.”

According to UPI editor-at-large Arnaud De Borchgrave, Tira’s line tracks the New Year’s Day message of Likud superhawk “Bibi” Netanyahu, the former prime minister.

Said Netanyahu, Israel “must immediately launch an intense, international public relations front first and foremost on the U.S. The goal being to encourage President Bush to live up to specific pledges he would not allow Iran to arm itself with nuclear weapons. We must make clear to the (U.S.) government, the Congress and the American public that a nuclear Iran is a threat to the U.S. and the entire world, not only Israel.”

Israel’s war, says Bibi, must be sold as America’s war.

We are thus forewarned. A propaganda campaign, using Israeli agents and their neocon auxiliaries and sympathizers, who stampeded us into war in Iraq, is being prepared to stampede us into war on Iran.

Hell, I want America to attack Iran! Those bastards killed our people in Lebanon, are causing trouble in Iraq, have given money and training to our enemies all over the world, counterfit our money, collaborate with North Korea on nukes and rockets, attacked US ships in the Perian Gulf. To top it off they are a bunch of muslims lunatics and major assholes. If any nation deserves to get bombed, it it them (and then North Korea). Does anyone seriously believe that they will use nuclear power to generate electricity? Total bullshit. They are going to give the bomb to some muslim to set off in NY or LA or Chicago. The muslims world needs to be taught a real lesson, not the charity work we are doing in Iraq, and Iran is a perfect start. President Bush has totally fucked things up in iraq, this is his chance to redemm himself and actually strike a blow to our enemies that will do some lasting good.

The best way to solve the problems of the Middle East would be to nuke it. That way all the troublesome Semites (Jews and Arabs included) would be wiped out.
