A Neocon's View on Whether Israel will Attack Iran

Jasmin Ramsey writes:

Michael Ledeen, a neoconservative historian and long-time Iran hawk who joined the hardline Foundation for Defense of Democracies after leaving the American Enterprise Institute in 2008, summarizes Israel’s strategy with the United States and Iran:
…Israel does not want to do it.  For as long as I can remember, the Israelis have been trying to get U.S. to do it, because they have long believed that Iran was so big that only a big country could successfully take on the mullahs in a direct confrontation.  So Israel’s Iran policy has been to convince us to do whatever the Israelis think is best.  And while they’re willing to do their part, they are very reluctant to take on the entire burden.

  1. If the Isrealis attack Iran (and they probably won't), it will ruin Barry's election run but they can't be sure he won't let them take a battering from Iran and allies in the meantime, by 'consulting with other stakeholders'. The republicans would fume and howl but thats of no real consequence until Willard is sworn in.
    This is the military-industrial-congressional-intelligence-zionist-complex firming its grasp on the US treasury as the US turns,um , sour.

  2. The Zionist American Isreali complex have the propaganda machine but no balls what so ever...especially since Putin is pissed and has alittle more then gravitas!

  3. I long for the time when I thought Ledeen was a Patriot who actually had this countries interest in mind. Those were the daze my friend.
