Israel is preparing to attack Iran and Obama is too busy to speak with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the situation? Nov. 6th just can't get here soon enough.

Natanyahu's goal is pretty obvious: make Israel the tail wagging the US dog by dividing Americans and fear mongering in the Dick Cheney tradition. I can't wait for Bibi to suggest a little "regime change" for Iran.

It is obvious that you do not understand the Israeli mentality. They don't bluff, and they will not tolerate Iran holding a nuclear threat over their heads. It isn't a question of if but when they will attack Iran. Personally I think an early attack might benefit Obama's re-election. I suspect that Netanyahu will postpone the inevitable to see if Romney wins the election.

You must have forgotten the Six Day War in June of 1967. Do you remember who won, .... and who lost?

they don't bluff? how long have they been threatening to go it alone rifleman? Mark is right we should not allow Natanyahu to decide when we send our young men and women into harms way. btw I don't know if you actually bothered reading or simply did not comprehend what you where reading but the article very clearly states Obama talked to Natanyahu this week.

yeah, BO picked up the phone, but he would not condescend to meet with him personally.

I see you forget that they took out Saddam's nuclear facilities - that was a bluff? When they see Iran getting close enough, they will not wait for BO.

Did Neanyhu ask for a face to face meeting? what would be the point of flying all the way to Israel to meet with Netanyahu at this moment? how long have they been thumbing their chest over Iran? you are really stretching to try to justify riflemans claims.

"what would be the point of flying all the way to Israel to meet with Netanyahu at this moment?"

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu didn't ask Obama to fly to Israel for a meeting. He asked to meet our president in Washington D.C. When preparing to attack Iran, and where we have interests in the region wouldn't it be reasonable to try and prevent a war?

And no, they haven't been thumbing their nose at Iran. They've been sending repeated warnings that only a fool would ignore.
