  • Well, based on Biden's latest summation, the Obama Administration has offered to sit down and "chat" about things IF Iran wants to...and the offer is "on the table." In other words it doesn't look like they are going to do anything until we're provoked. Israel can see the writing on the wall. They know they are on their own now, they are probably just preparing for the inevitable. Perhaps the Israeli intelligence knows things we do not, or our current administration could care less about.

    It's the "wait and see" administration. ::sigh::

  • Read the article in the link. Its not about US attacking. Saudi Arabia made an unprecidented decision to allow ISRAEL use of there airspace to attack Iran.

  • US Vice President Joe Biden said that the US would not stop Israel if it launches an attack against Iran.
    The US “cannot dictate to another sovereign nation what they can and cannot do,” Biden said, the Associated Press reported.
    Israel, the possessor of the sole nuclear arsenal in the Middle East, accuses Iran of pursuing nuclear weapons and drawing up plans to attack the regime.
    Iran denies the charges and says under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which the country is a signatory of; it is entitled to conduct a nuclear program for civilian purposes. (Funny isn't it that while Iran IS a signatory to the NPT, Israel is NOT!)
    The US, Israel's staunchest ally, has for sometime denied Israel a green light to carry out an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities.
    Biden, however, told ABC that Israel is able to determine "what's in their interest and what they decide to do relative to Iran and anyone else.''
