Baer and Hanson: 50-50 Israel strikes Iran by end of 2010 Q1

Big Government brings us this interview with Robert Baer and Victor Davis Hanson in which an Israeli strike on Iran is a real scenario. Big Government comments.
Either “full of himself” doesn’t even begin to describe our president, or his speechwriters are literally in love with him – which would be cute, were it not so perilous.

Because the world watches. In Israel, they watch and they listen and they don’t like the way the “winds of change” are blowing. They feel america leaving them in the desert. In Europe, they listen and they must, if their ears are working, hear the news that America will no longer play the bad cop to their good cop. If Obama’s America, while dreaming of a world without nuclear weapons, allows Iran to attain the ability to strike German cities, what should the Europeans leaders do? Will the Germans build new weapons of their own? As this interview with two experts on the region reveals, circumstances are rapidly growing too dire to ignore.
Let's go to the videotape.

Unfortunately (and I say 'unfortunately' only because I appreciate the consequences), the odds of an Israeli strike on Iran are growing by the day. No one here is willing to die to keep the price of gas in the US at $2.70 per gallon while that Islamist-loving moron in Washington goes all over the world talking about himself and bowing on America's behalf. He makes Neville Chamberlain look like a brilliant statesman.

I don't give a damn if oil goes to $1,000 per barrel, so long as my family and I are able to live normal lives. Does anyone in Washington get that? Do the 60 Democratic Senators who can bring anything to a vote understand that no one here is willing to die so that they can back 'engagement' with Iran? Or are they still enamored with King Hussein? Do the foolish Jews in the House like Bob Wexler and Gary Ackerman really think Israel is going to take a hit for them?

But deep down, it's impossible to escape the feeling that this may be Iraq or Syria all over again. Will Iran really respond? That seems less real than us hitting them. (Hamas and Hezbullah will respond, but they're like flies compared with Iran). But if we don't hit them, it's clear that they will hit us. There is no choice. Israel will have to act. God will help us.

I think after all this posturing, and with the level of control the IRGC have in Iran, a full scale attack in many forms is to be expected.

The current President's foreign policy is both naiive and dangerous. Foreign relations is not "playing nice". There is a total lack of leadership & the Jewish advisors are silent. To quote Amb. Gillerman Iran is "an extreme and evil regime which denies the Holocaust while preparing for the next one". Israel has the right of self defense and more. If Israel stands alone so be it. With the help of G-d Israel will survive & stay strong.

Ein Breira. Its clear there is no alternative. Sanctions are too little too late and diplomacy has not made Iran more accommodating - just the opposite.

The time for Israel to act in the light of today's Iranian announcement has been considerably shortened. It could now come before the end of the year but certainly well before spring.

Hasn't this been the prediction for a while? I remember Pat Robertson saying that Israel would strike Iran after the U.S. presidential election in 2008 but before the new president's inauguration in 2009. That sounded like a sensible prediction--strike when the U.S. would have to mutely accept it.

But if Israel strikes in the next five months, it faces an extremely cold shoulder from the White House...

it's true that israel should lunch the attack to iran.

but before that, in my opinion israel should go for hizballah and hamas, and only once they are completely destroy or wickened, then go for iran...
the probabilty of being attacked by hamas and hizballah is grater than a direct retalation from iran which would be in the form of misiles that israel can destroy with the anti misiles defences.
