"Lockdown" sounds more like "Same Old’"

May 19th, 2012 Comments off

(Reuters) – “….. This inner sanctum at the end of a corridor between Netanyahu’s private room and the office of his top military adviser, is where one of the decade’s most momentous military decisions could soon be taken: to launch an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear program………
As the deadline for a decision draws nearer, the public pronouncements of Israel’s top officials and military have changed. After hawkish warnings about a possible strike earlier this year, their language of late has been more guarded and clues to their intentions more difficult to discern.
“The top of the government has gone into lockdown,” one official said. “Nobody is saying anything publicly (except THAT official, of course!). That in itself tells you a lot about where things stand.”…….
“I think they have made a decision to attack,” said one (other) senior Israeli figure with close ties to the leadership. “It is going to happen. The window of opportunity is before the U.S. presidential election in November. This way they will bounce the Americans into supporting them.”……..
“I think they’ve gone into lockdown mode now,” (borrowing from the above Israeli official) the senior Western diplomat said. “Whatever happens next, whatever they decide, we will not find out until it happens.” (WOW!)…”

"Progress" does not prevent this diplomat from threatening Armageddon!

May 17th, 2012 Comments off

(Reuters) – U.S. plans for a possible military strike on Iran are ready and the option is “fully available”, the U.S. ambassador to Israel said, days before Tehran resumes talks with world powers which suspect it of seeking to develop nuclear arms….
“It would be preferable to resolve this diplomatically and through the use of pressure than to use military force,” Ambassador Dan Shapiro said in remarks about Iran aired by Israel’s Army Radio on Thursday.
“But that doesn’t mean that option is not fully available – not just available, but it’s ready. The necessary planning has been done to ensure that it’s ready,” said Shapiro, who the radio station said had spoken on Tuesday……
New talks opened in Istanbul last month and resume on May 23 in Baghdad…..
In January, Shapiro told an Israeli newspaper the United States was “guaranteeing that the military option is ready and available to the president at the moment he decides to use it”.
