John Bolton: Israel Must Strike Iran Now

And now for something completely different, let's focus on the serious side of having to deal with the Appeaser in Chief, the Iranian situation. For a little change of pace, I'd like to bring in a heavy hitter. Please give the Reaganite Republican a nice ADHD welcome ... and make sure you click the link at the bottom and go over and read all the way to the end ... or we may sick the TerrorTortilla from Gaza on you.

By The Reaganite Republican

Iran Will Have Nukes Before the
United Nations or Obama Do Anything

"Right now we know about the facilities. ... We know where they are," he said. "We know exactly what their dimensions are, and I think they are susceptible to an Israeli attack."

Bolton said an Israeli military option "isn't there forever. ... If Israel is going to use military force, it needs to use it sooner rather than later."... "Since I don't see any possibility that the Obama administration will use military force, I think what that means – to cut to the chase – is this comes down to a decision by Israel whether or not it will use military force against Iran's program."

Bolton said he believes there is no doubt Israel possesses the military capability to hit Iranian nuclear sites, but he said the Jewish state would need to act soon.

"I think the problem is that the military option is declining day by day," he said. "Every day that goes by is another day where the Iranians can build alternative facilities for uranium conversion, uranium enrichment weaponization, that are in unknown locations that are deeply buried or hardened and that Israel's capabilities just can't reach."

Israel Would Wipe the Floor with Iran... Nukes or Not

The only hope for peace was a strong, timely, and principled stand against Iran's rogue atomic weapons programs... with Obama, obviously that didn't happen. Rather, his weakness, foolish appeasement efforts, and thinly-veiled contempt for the Jewish state are instead inviting attacks from Iranian allies and proxies, as witnessed in last week's "peace boat" stunt. Israel is one of the only true friends America ever had... sadly, this is being cast aside flippantly by the most disgruntled and radical president in US history, one who shamefully spent 20 yrs sitting in an anti-Semitic church. Alas, Obama has all but acquiesced to an Iranian bomb... but Israel has not -and will not- ever.

If Dear Leader chooses to abandon them more comprehensively should Israel bomb Iran, not replenishing planes and weapons spent in any Israeli attack on Iran would be one way to do it... this would make an IDF move against Iran -in defiance of Obama- all the more risky, challenge being Jerusalem would likely face a subsequent all-out war vs Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, and Hamas. If it didn't go as well as '68 and '73, they could run into supply problems if the US withdrew support while the IDF were facing thousands of missiles raining-down from Hezbollah in southern Lebanon.

Regardless, in most any nuclear or conventional scenario, all-out war looks like a real bad bet for Tehran... they have almost no chance of defeating Israel in an expanded conflict, if the Iranians would even fight hard for the widely-reviled regime. And unlike recent tepid IDF campaigns -i.e. Lebanon 2006- Israel would fight this one to win... and win BIG. Tehran would have to be nuts to want this fight... but unfortunately for all of us, they are just that.
