Israel's Demise: US Air Force to Stand Between Israel and Iran?

by Maggie at Maggie's Notebook

Israel will never take out Iran's nuclear facilities. When President George Bush walked out on his promise to never allow a nuclear Iran, it left the most moral of world decisions unhinged. The Bush exit left the decision to Barack Obama. Iran's Achmadinejad and the they will have their way with Israel, because the most moral of decisions is left to Barack Obama. Barack Hussein Obama will not touch Iran - not with weapons or with sanctions - not even with some strongly couched verbal threats.


But now we have Benjamin Netanyahu at Israel's head, and he says Iran will never be nuclear. That has been a comforting promise since Bush looked the other way. I believe that promise is what got Netanyahu back into office in Israel, because just think what it must be like to live there.

But can Netanyahu attack Iran? Israel has the weapons. They do not have the resolve of the free world, however, to back them up. But does it make any difference? It seems clear...cut and dried...Israel will take out the Iranian nuclear program. But...but what if...what if the United States Air Force prevents an Israeli attack. What if the Israeli Air Force cannot pass over Barack Obama's Air Force?

At first, I thought this American Thinker article was a bit dramatic, although I am always completely serious anytime I think about Israel - and the danger they live with just heightens every day. I didn't read the beginning of this article with a careless attitude. When I see a title such as Farewell to Zion. Forever., it captures my full attention.

Cliff Thier's article doesn't ask questions. It answers them, even the questions we haven't asked for many, many years.

Since the Obamas came on our horizon, we've heard and learned many things about America, things I surely didn't know before these two got to a microphone: We are not a Christian nation, we are arrogant, dismissive and derisive. "Our souls are broken in this nation." There is no "war on terror," only man-made disasters. The current man-made disaster is battled through the Overseas Contingency Operation, "focusing your life on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition," and maybe the most frightening: "we cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as strong, just as well-funded, and "we will defeat the Taliban and al-Qaeda in Pakistan."

We've seen many things: election fraud at stunning levels with the offenders protected by the White House, veterans being asked to provide their own insurance to treat war wounds, American taxpayer dollars paying for abortions overseas and doctor's forced to participate in abortions, our government grabbing up companies and firing executives, the Executive Office taking control of the U.S. census, the Obama administration taking control of cyberspace under very tough rules - and capable of shutting-down "we the people" without notice or cause. The Obama administration accepting tax evaders into the highest offices in the land, the President of the United States telling Turkey that the United States is not a "Christian nation," the Treasury Secretary seeking authorization to seize financial entities that he deems in trouble. And we've seen our President bow to the King of Saudia Arabia in a low bow that is shocking the world. As I said on more than one occasion in comments around the blogs, this was not a etiquette faux paux - the man was having a moment, an emotional moment. No need to mention the distribution of my wealth and yours through the Stimulus.

We've had countless promises broken: "lobbyists "will not find a job in my White House," "very seldom will you hear me simplify a problem," "You will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime.

So why would we discount Cliff Thier's hypothesis, which I think he sees as a very sure bet? I hope you will read this article, then come back here and let me know what you think. Be sure to read to the end.

  1. I have one very good reason to discount what he says. The Bible. Israel's return from many nations is prophecied. As is their great army. So too is the alliance between Persia and Russia. Nearly half of the end times prophecies have come true. Also true is the fact that America will NOT support Israel in the coming storm. In fact, America isn't mentioned AT ALL in prophecy.

    For me, considering the dismantling of our Constitution by the Dems, this speaks more of our fate than Israel's. They are protected even now. We however, are not.

    The bible is clear, God will bless those that bless Israel, and Curse those that Curse her. Have heart, It will be safer there than here in a very short few years.

  2. Maggie this is a very powerful piece! The article by Cliff Thier appears to be the work of a real prophet crying in the wilderness. I fear that he is correct.

  3. Just finished Thier's masterful article and your terrific piece. At first, it seemed to be stretching logic, but as you observed, the more one thinks about it the more possible it appears. And the more anger I feel at those among us who elected this incompetent leftist fool to lead our great nation. God help Israel. God help us all.

  4. Regretably, Cliff Thier is right. But there is a bypass, if Bibi has the balls, which I doubt.

    The job does not require F16s, Jericho missiles with nuclear warheads can do the job just as well if not better.

    Yes, blessed well I did suggest a preemptive nuclear strike. It will probably be Israel's only alternative.

    Israel should tell the world to go to Hell if we don't approve. It is easier to obtain forgiveness than permission. Once Tehran launches one, it will be too late to obtain either.

  5. Yikes!

    It seems you are more concerned about this fantasy Biblical "prophecy" (that a majority of human beings on earth do not believe, by the way) and totally dismiss U.S. (facts on the ground, not religious prophecies)homeland security! And someone in the comments calls Obama a "leftist fool" after what we have endured with the half witted G.W. Bush?

    Here is what the IAEA said about Iran just last January:

    "Iran has continued to facilitate access under its Safeguards Agreement as requested by the Agency, and to act as if the Additional Protocol is in force, including by providing in a timely manner the requisite declarations and access to locations."

    Last April Elbaradei complained about the hype around Iran's nuclear research, and said that there is no imminent threat from Iran.

    The only thing that the IAEA knows for sure is that Iran has a peaceful nuclear energy research program. Such a program is not the same as a weapons program, and it is perfectly legal under the Nonproliferation Treaty, which Iran, unlike Israel, has actually signed.

    Do any of you have half a clue the meaning of homeland security? If you did you would be a bit more interested in calculating the consequences of these wars instead of worrying about "Israel" your "prophesy".

    I'm pretty sure idiot Natenyahu will do us in the rest of the way by nuking Iran on it's own. If our AF steps in then thank God for Obama's common sense! I am a republican btw but I vote according to the candidate and the issues. No, I did not vote for McCain who was representing only right wing white people in this country. ( I am white but this is not a "white" nation)

    If you love Israel so much, it's become obvious to just about everyone (who's got feet on the ground) that Israel is on it's way out. It can't exist if it can't make friends with it's neighbors which it has not and never will. They can't keep trying to kill everyone in order to exist. That's the bottom line.

    So much damage has been done by your Neocons, we are doomed economically, anyone keeping up with that? On who's watch did that happen? Who is behind it? Have any of your wars helped us yet? Let us count the ways....

  6. Well, Michelle, it's clear who's coolaid you've been drinking. Now for the facts as the Iranian President sees it. He hates the Jews. He believes (as he has stated publicly) that it is his destiny to usher in the 12th Imam by blood and fire. He's testing long range missiles. He's spoken repeatedly about Islamic Fire raining down on Israel.

    I've not finished a Doctorate but even I can tell you that 2 + 2 = 4. Iran + Nuke = burning Israel. I feel for you that you have no faith in anything other than a liberal humanistic agenda. What an angry life you must lead.

  7. I just visited Michelle's site. Now her comments are more clear. She's not just a liberal. She's an Islamo-fascist herself. Gotcha. Now I can totally disregard her completely.
