What Obama really means and What McCain policy means

Reader comment on item: Obama vs. McCain on the Middle East

Submitted by Lame Cherry (United States), Jun 6, 2008 at 16:28

The thing missed here is what Barack Obama means by a "secure Israel" which is vastly different from the bridgehead which John McCain views the Israeli state as.

Barack Obama would in an Kenyan communist moment sell out the Orthodox Jews. His calling settlers a problem if they continue as "stuck in the status quo" is alarming as it means Gush Katif for the West Bank completely along with Bashan along the Golan.
American Jews have to understand that a President Obama will "see terrorists" sides, leverage the IDF to not attack Gaza and have Jews herded into nice bomb craters "so everyone can get along".

John McCain though in policy sees the Israeli state as a bridgehead in the Middle East. One which he does not want to get bogged down in, but one where he will bomb the daylights out of some Israeli foe to keep the Israeli's from launching nuclear weapons. This is what Iraq was about in part and what Iran will be a part of which Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia will sign off on to keep peace by allowing America and the Israeli state to make war.

The subject for American Jews is simple:

Barack Obama will "talk" until made a fool of and then he will use nuclear weapons to bomb Pashtun, polluting the region.

John McCain will walk deliberately with a big nuclear stick looking to use it with effect.

Obama is one of weakness which will trade away "zionism" and end with the Israeli state engaging in a nuclear exchange.

McCain is one of strength in allowing the IDF to police it's own problems and America like in Iraq striking the larger objective to keep the coming Eurasian world war from spilling into US allied interests.

Obama is a proven disaster by his own words. McCain will instead "ride the tidal wave" for the best effectual outcome for US interests in the region.

There is not a great deal either can do about the strikes coming, but the difference is a cancer like Jimmy Carter diseased the region with to a wound which Bush 41 inflicted on the region and Bill Clinton allowed 9 11 to happen as the wound turned into an ulcer.
Obama is Carter and McCain is Bush 41.

America requires a Reagan, but the patricians so messed up the system that no Fred Thompson is available and Zell Miller never would stand a chance in the communist clique of the Democrats.

God Bless
