Obama Wants Turkey/Israel to Help Bomb Shit Outta Syria

Some people still don’t get that Obama is a pragmatist with a heart of stone. Both domestically and internationally speaking.

Internationally speaking, according to Melkulangara Bhadrakumar, Obama got what he wanted from the trip to Israel when at the very end of it he played catalyst to Turkey's and Israel's “making up” after the killing of nine Turkish nationals by Israeli commandos in the 2010 Turkish flotilla on a humanitarian mission to help the Palestinians of Gaza.

Netanhayu Courts Right w/ Slaughter of Nowhere-to-Run Gazans

Mohammed Omer, Palestinian journalist based in Gaza who in 2008 won the Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism, writes:

“Air strikes are bombing everything that moves. Everything that moves in the streets is being bombed and attacked. ...

Giraldi believes an equal number of analysts believe he is bluffing.

Creepy 50/50 odds. Read below the fold...

President Obama sent Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu home with a warning that Israel cannot count on U.S. support if it unilaterally bombs Iran. Top neocons are fuming and Netanyahu must weigh the risk of defying Obama on Iran and trying to deny him reelection, writes Robert Parry.

Let us suppose that Netanyahu decides to strike unilaterally. First of all, it is not impossible that Iran could shoot down at least some of Israels planes. That would create problems for Netanyahu at home. Read below the fold...
