US Snubs Israel Over Threat To Iran

Israel wants their long cherished war against Iran desperately.  The criminal Zionist regime is pushing its puppets in the US Government to launch a war against Iran using US forces that have been building up in the Persian Gulf region.   It is obvious that Israel wants American soldiers fighting and dying for their sick dream of hegemony over the entire region.   The problem is that with their total control over the US media, they may get the American public to accept the insane and absolutely BS notion that Iran needs to be destroyed to prevent it from obtaining non-existent nuclear weapons.

But now there seems to be an actual glimmer of sanity on the part of the American military.  According to this article from www.uruknet.info, the American Defense Secretary, Robert Gates, is rejecting the insane Israeli Prime Minister, Netanyahu's newest calls for military action against Iran immediately.   Here is that Uruknet article for my own readers to view:

US rejects Israeli request for military threat against Iran over its nuclear programme, favouring continued sanctions

November 8, 2010
The US has rejected comments by Israel's prime minister calling for a military threat against Iran to ensure it does not obtain nuclear weapons.
"We know that they are concerned about the impact of the sanctions. The sanctions are biting more deeply than they anticipated and we are working very hard at this," Robert Gates, US defence secretary, said on Monday.
"So I would disagree that only a credible military threat can get Iran to take the actions it needs to end its nuclear weapons programme," he said during a visit to Australia for security talks.
"We are prepared to do what is necessary but at this point we continue to believe that the political-economic approach that we taking is in fact having an impact in Iran."
Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, told US Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday that only a "credible" military threat can deter Iran from building a nuclear weapon, Israeli political sources said.
Netanyahu, beginning a five-day US visit, argued that economic sanctions have failed to persuade Iran to stop its nuclear programme.
Peaceful resolution
However, Biden said after the talks that the sanctions "have a bite" and were having a "measurable impact", though he expressed frustration that Tehran had brushed aside overtures by President Barack Obama's administration.
"The only way to ensure that Iran will not go nuclear is to create a credible threat of military action against it if it doesn't cease its race for a nuclear weapon," one of the sources quoted Netanyahu as telling Biden.
In remarks to the Jewish Federations of North America General Assembly in New Orleans, Biden said: "We continue to seek a peaceful resolution and hope Iranian leaders will reconsider their current destructive and debilitating course".
"But let me be very clear about this: We are also absolutely committed to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons."
The West believes that Iran aims to use its uranium enrichment programme to build atomic weapons, and both Israel and the United States have said all options are on the table in dealing with its nuclear ambitions.
But Netanyahu, who has in the past called for "crippling sanctions" against Iran, had made clear that Israel wanted to see if tough economic sanctions could eliminate what it described as a threat against its existence.
Tehran has repeatedly denied it is seeking to build atomic weapons and maintains that it has a right to produce its own fuel for several nuclear power plants it's building for civilian use.
Biden's discussions with Netanyahu comes on the heels of US mid-term elections that left Obama in a weakened position with Republicans in control of the House of Representatives and the Democrats clinging to a slender majority in the Senate.
US politicking
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham set a tough tone on Saturday at a security conference in Ottawa when he said conservatives want "bold" action on Iran.
If Obama "decides to be tough with Iran beyond sanctions, I think he is going to feel a lot of Republican support for the idea that we cannot let Iran develop a nuclear weapon," Graham told the Halifax International Security Forum.
"Sanctions are important. They are increasing pressure on Iran. But so far there has not been any change in the behaviour of Iran and upgrading of international pressure is necessary," Mark Regev, Netanyahu's spokesman, quoted him as telling Biden.
The impasse over Iran's nuclear activities has already led to fresh UN and EU sanctions against Tehran, which were followed by several other unilateral punitive measures by the United States and the European Union.
Sanctions notably ban investments in oil, gas and petrochemicals while also targeting banks, insurance, financial transactions and shipping - which Tehran has brushed off as having no impact.
But Iran has said it is prepared to resume talks from November 10 and proposed that they be held in Turkey rather than Vienna, the site proposed by Catherine Ashton, EU foreign policy chief.
The talks, which include Britain, China, France, Russia, Germany and the US, have been deadlocked since October 2009 when the two sides met in Geneva.
The New York Times reported last month that the Obama administration and its European allies were preparing a new, more onerous offer for Iran than the one rejected by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei last year.
The offer would require Iran to send more than 1,995 kgs of low-enriched uranium out of the country, an increase of more than two-thirds from the amount required under a deal struck in Vienna.

NTS Notes:  It does seem that a semblance of sanity may actually be taking hold with the US military. Guaranteed, many in the US military have taken the time to assess their options and to look at what actual war with Iran would entail, and have realized that it would not be a cakewalk as originally expected, and in fact could lead to a larger regional war if not war with both Russia and China!

It does seem for the moment that cooler heads have prevailed, but as I have said many times, with Israel's total control over the US Government, we have not heard the last of their push for war with Iran.   Lets hope before that happens that the American public finally wakes up to the truth that Iran absolutely has no nuclear weapons and is absolutely not a threat in the region.  We can always hope.....

More to come

Let's pray Israel doesn't get it's way. Watch out for a false flag attack on the horizon....

The latest Wikileaks releases are trying to demonize Iran for causing all the chaos in Iraq. Setting the groundwork?

John, we all know by now that WikiLeaks itself is fraudulent and used as disinformation....

But it would not surprise me that a new false flag is on the horizon....

I have been pushing for people to be aware of the possibility of a nuclear attack using those two still missing South African built nuclear devices against a city in America. This is the worst case scenario.

The best case scenario.... The people of the US finally get to their government officials and demand a "stand down" on the confrontational stance against Iran...However, with Israeli Zionist Jews in control of the media, that may not happen as well...

Israel still wants war against Iran, and they know that the longer this war is delayed, the more the masses awaken to their criminality. Therefore the clock is still ticking...
