Not Bloodthirsty Enough

Apparently Barack Obama hasn't shown a firm enough commitment to slaughtering civilians and making blindingly stupid acts of aggression:
Speaking to some 6,500 assembled for the conference, Robert Satloff, the executive director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, warned of “the potential for a deep disagreement between the U.S. and Israel governments over how to really deal with a nuclear Iran.”

The issue could produce “the most tense face-to-face disagreement between the United States and Israel in the past 61 years,” he said.

Other close observers of the relationship say its contours remain unclear.

“Barack Obama still has to prove himself to American friends of Israel, who still don’t know where his heart is on Israel,” said a Democratic member of the House of Representatives. “And Bibi has to prove he is up to this moment.”
Not that AIPAC insanity is anything new, but I just like the idea that by opposing a carpet-bombing of Iran or Gaza, it means that Obama "has to prove" he supports Israel. These people really are monsters.

  1. Isn't it enough that we've been propping up their military for six decades? Really, it'd be nice if they weren't expecting us as their permanent and unconditional ally. I guess they're worried that Obama might not turn a blind eye the next time they have elections and need to firebomb someone.
