The failures would be aggravating

Reader comment on item: Explaining Israel's Strategic Mistakes

Submitted by Mansoor (Pakistan), Jan 28, 2009 at 15:08

Israel is not able to initiate any assault on Iran without USA's help. Mr. Pipes suggesting that Iran is a bigger problem can be seen as an attempt to drag USA into another Military conflict. This time the target would be Iran. Obama much to the surprise of the Muslim world continues to support Drone attacks in Pakistan. The weak Government and tumbling economy made Pakistan a vulnerable target for the Americans.

Pakistan and Muslims in particular quickly realized that Obama Administration would not be much different from the George Bush's. In present circumstances it is visible that the Policy for Palestine would also be remained unchanged. The question is, for how long USA would feed Israel... to secure their Interest and in return, loose its own Vitamins. ... The new conflict with Iran would crash the US Economy. I am also quite sure that no Jew on this forum would want USA to show little mercy to Iran. ...

The matter is to remove the final hurdle, Iran from the way of Israeli supremacy in the region. No matter this goal would cost the demise of USA from the map of this world. Americans would realize soon when the water would reach their noses. Now they are caught in the drama of Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism.

The present involvement is dragging USA from the real issue. I have deep sympathies with USA's concerned citizens but to save their necks loyal US Citizens must act and come forward to stop the Obama Administration from entering into a new conflict. For me the slogan of change is now turned into EX-CHANGE. It is actually the exchange of faces, previously it was Bush now Obama. Those readers who had some reservations about Obama's approach towards Israel should feel satisfied because this President is doing what you really wanted him to do.

For me, I am quite sure when I earlier stated in my different posts that Obama is the next Gorbachev, write it on the wall.
