The Obama victory pretty much clinched it. Bush was solidly in Israel’s camp, but didn’t want Israel to initiate a war until Iraq was stabilized. Now Israel will be forced to attack Iran while the US still is a friendly presence on the UN Security Council. I’m thinking Sunday, Dec 21. They’ll start off the Festival of Lights by lighting up parts of Iran’s nuclear program.
If they wait until Obama is sworn in, then they’ll have only the UK as a solid ally on the UNSC.
What about you? Tell me what you think.
