The US top soldier, JCOS Gen. Martin Dempsey’s statement over this weekend has disappointed Israel prime ministe Benji Netanyahu so much that he called the General short of “a Jew hater“.
Gen. Dempsey denounced a strike on Iran in the near future as “destabilizing” and “not prudent” over the weekend while speaking to CNN’s Israel-Firster, Fareed Zakaria, in regards to America and Israel’s effort to prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear warhead (or nuclear capability). The prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of the Zionist entity has called Dempsey’s statement “the US is adopting policies that will favor Iran, and not their historical ally: Israel“.
Discussing whether an attack on Iran seems worthwhile for the US military right now, Gen. Dempsey told Zakaria, “A strike at this time would be destabilizing and wouldn’t achieve their long-term objectives.”
Gen. Dempsey also repeated his 2008 evaluation of the Islamic Republic, saying: “We are of the opinion that Iran is a rational player“. This remark angered Zionist Jew head of powerful Jewish think tank, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Dr. Richard N. Haass who said on MSNBC, today: “To call Iran a rational actor is code talk. Let me just make it clear, if you call them rational, that means that deterrence works and that means that you’re willing to live with an Iran that has nuclear weapons“. Apparently, the con-Zionist wants Americans to believe that Israel doesn’t have 240-400 nuclear weapons.
“Iran is unlikely to initiate or intentionally provoke a conflict,” US Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Ronald Burgess told a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing last week, adding that “an Iranian-led military action against the US would only be likely if the United States fired first“.
American intelligence believes that, if Iran is indeed developing a nuclear weapon as rumored, they do not stand to finish their research anytime soon. In the interim, the US hopes that diplomatic talks and negotiations will thwart that research before it matures. Israel, however, appears much more concerned and has condemned the US for not acting on the offensive already. Last month, Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon explicitly called the Obama administration “hesitant” in their unwillingness to attack, which was followed by a warning only a day later by the nation’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, in which he urged the US to “move from words to deeds.”
Last year, Obama’s selection of General Martin Dempsey as new Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was approved unanimously by the House under Israel Lobby (AIPAC) instruction. Amir Oren wrote in Israeli daily Ha’aretz (June 1, 2011) that Dempsey being a friend of Israel for a long time, brings good news for Israel on war against Iran.
Interestingly, Admiral Mike Mullen, Gen. David Petraeus, Panetta and Gen. Dempsey have all bullied Iran with “all options on table”. However, after US occupation forces’ defeat in Iraq by Maliki-Ahmadinejad shrewed politics and temporary closure of Strait of Hormuz without firing a single missile – Obama administration has come to the conclusion that a new military adventure in Iran on behalf of Israel is not worth for the risk for the time being. Washington now wants to wait for the results in Syria and Lebanon. Islamophobe Sen. John McCain while hugging Netanyahu in Jerusalem, agreed with Richard Haass’ statement.
Last year, Rep. Ron Paul, said that it’s high time for the US to learn to live with a nuclear Iran.
