VS distantiëren zich van Israëlisch Iranbeleid (analyse)

WASHINGTON, 17 januari 2012 (IPS) — De regering-Obama heeft een grootscheepse militaire oefening met Israël uitgesteld. Een duidelijk signaal dat de VS afstand willen nemen van het Israëlische Iranbeleid waarmee ze vaak worden geassocieerd. Ze willen van premier Netanyahu de garantie dat hij Iran niet aanvalt zonder hun toestemming.

De oefening "Austere Challenge '12" was gepland voor april en simuleert een gezamenlijke Amerikaans-Israëlische operatie om naderende raketten te identificeren en onderscheppen, waarbij gesofisticeerde Amerikaanse radarsystemen worden gekoppeld aan Israëlisch afweergeschut. Zo anticiperen beide landen...

De timing zal niet toevallig zijn: deze week brengt de voorzitter van de Joint Chiefs of Staff, generaal Martin Dempsey, een bezoek aan Israël. Naar verluidt had Dempsey in de herfst in een vergadering met Obama zijn bezorgdheid geuit over de mogelijkheid dat Israël een unilaterale aanval tegen Iran zou lanceren. Obama zou geantwoord hebben dat hij geen inspraak heeft in het Israëlische beleid, tot ongenoegen van Dempsey.

Inderdaad men maakt zich enorme zorgen over het feit dat Israel zomaar de VS in een conflict tegen Iran kan slepen, zonder enige waarschuwing van tevoren. Ze vallen aan en dan hebben de VS geen andere keuze dan volgen.

Generaal Mike Mullen, een zeer goede militair, heeft altijd geprobeerd dit conflict te vermijden en ging zover dat hij In Israel het geval " Liberty" in 1967 met klem weer ter sprake heeft gebracht, als mogelijke waarschuving.

Amid tensions already reaching dangerous heights, Iranian nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was assassinated in Tehran in a bombing Jan. 11. Both Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and NSC spokesman Tommy Vietor immediately condemned the assassination and vehemently denied any U.S. involvement in that or any other violence inside Iran.

It was the first time the U.S. government had chosen to distance itself so dramatically from actions that mainstream media has generally treated as part of a joint U.S.-Israeli policy.

U.S. officials told Associated Press Saturday that Israel was considered responsible for the killing, and the London Times published a detailed account of what it said was an Israeli Mossad operation.


Oeps,zo verstevig je de vrienschapsbanden niet:
The assassination of nuclear scientist Majid Shariari and attempted assassination of his colleague, Fereydoon Abbasi on Nov. 29, 2010, for example, came just a few days after Tehran had reportedly agreed to hold a second meeting with the P5+1 in Geneva Dec. 6-7.

A major investigative story published Friday on the website foreignpolicy.com quoted former CIA officials as saying that Mossad operatives had been impersonating CIA personnel for several years in recruiting for and providing support to the Sunni terrorist organisation Jundallah, which operated inside Iran. That Israeli policy also suggested a desire to provoke Iranian retaliation against the United States.

Een tegenananalyse mag natuurlijk niet ontbreken
What these “leaked” stories of Washington’s warnings and protests to Israel are all about is to avoid Washington’s responsibility for the war Washington has prepared. If the war gets out of hand, and if Russia and China intervene or nukes start flying, Washington wants the blame to rest on Israel, and Israel seems willing to accept the blame. Nikolai Patrushev, who heads Russia’s Security Council, has apparently been deceived by Washington’s manipulation of the media. According to the Interfax news agency, Patrushev condemned Israel for pushing the US towards war with Iran.

You get the picture. The helpless Americans. They are being bullied by Israel into acquiescing to a dangerous war. Otherwise, no more campaign contributions.

The facts are different. If Washington did not want war with Iran it would not have provided the necessary weapons to Israel. It would not have deployed thousands of US troops to Israel, with a view toward the American soldiers being killed in an Iranian response to Israel’s attack, thus “forcing” the US to enter the war. Washington would not have built a missile defense system for Israel and would not be conducting joint exercises with the Israeli military to make sure it works.

If Washington did not want Israel to start the war, Washington would inform the Israeli government in no uncertain words that an Israeli strike on Iran means that the US will NOT veto the UN’s denunciation of Israel and the sanctions that would be placed on Israel as a war criminal state. Washington would tell Israel that it is good-bye to the billions of dollars that the bilked American taxpayers, foreclosed from their homes by fraudulent mortgages and from jobs by offshoring, hand over by compulsion to Israel to support Israel’’s crimes against humanity.

But, of course, Washington won’t prevent the war that it so fervently desires.

Arabische tegenaanval zonder wapens...
The ‘Arab hackers’ attack on Israel escalated today. The Israeli Stock Exchange’s and El Al’s sites collapsed on Monday. The hackers say that it is within their capability to crash every Israeli server.

“If Israel apologises to the people of the Gaza genocide, we may reduce the attacks," said Saudi Hacker OxOmar to Ynet in an interview via email. "I want to harm Israel in any way possible. Hitting Israel in the pocket is certainly where it hurts. “I'll Make the Israeli authorities cry " warned OxOmar who operates from Mexico.

Er wordt uiteraard uitgesproken vreedzaam gereageerd door de enige democratie in het MO :
OxOmar wasn’t very happy with Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon, who called the Hacker’s attacks an act of "terrorism". Ayalon also warned that hackers may have to bear the consequences. He obviously referred to Israeli vengeance.

Het Pentagon is druk bezig de stukken op het schaakbord op te stellen maar zou Israel waarschuwen niet de eerste zet te doen?

Ik hecht meer waarde aan P.C. Roberts' visie.
