Report: Obama to Tell Netanyahu US Is Gearing Up for Iran Strike

From Gateway Pundit:

Barack Obama will reportedly tell Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the US is gearing up for an Iranian strike.
The Times of Israel reported:
When he visits Israel next month, US President Barack Obama will tell Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that a “window of opportunity” for a military strike on Iran will open in June, according to an Israeli TV report Monday evening.
Obama will come bearing the message that if diplomatic efforts and sanctions don’t bear fruit, Israel should “sit tight” and let Washington take the stage, even if that means remaining on the sidelines during a US military operation, Channel 10 reported. Netanyahu will be asked to refrain from any military action and keep a low profile, avoiding even the mention of a strike, the report said, citing unnamed officials.
In London Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry said an Iran with nuclear weapons was “simply unacceptable” and warned the time limit for a diplomatic solution was running out.
“As we have repeatedly made clear, the window for a diplomatic solution simply cannot remain open forever,” said Kerry, on his first international tour as America’s top diplomat. “But it is open today. It is open now and there is still time, but there is only time if Iran makes the decision to come to the table and to negotiate in good faith.
“We are prepared to negotiate in good faith, in mutual respect, in an effort to avoid whatever terrible consequences could follow failure, and so the choice really is in the hands of the Iranians. And we hope they will make the right choice,” Kerry added.

Does this smell right to any of you?

Sorry Pasto, i've got my doubts about it.
One of the 'conditions' of the talks that are now being held was a 'less aggressive' attitude of the US, result he pulls all his carriers to harbor(Making them the perfect target since Pearl Harbor).With one carrier to keep the strait of Hormuz open he practically gives them the 'go ahead' to close the strait.Now why would he do this?

To justify a strike?

Pastorius said...

But yeah, I agree with the two of you. This does not make sense given everything else we know of Obama.

More likely, he is trying to buy himself some times with Israel to get some other plan into place and then put the big squeeze on Netanyahu.

I believe this story.

The date of the attack is January 31, 2017 and will be carried out by the Vermont Air National Guard flying P-47 Thunderbolts

I´m posting this here because I don´t know how to contact you directly, but I know one of you lives in Penn.

This is a petition to the Lancaster School District to reject an application for another Gulen school.

Act was very active and effective in VA and were able to knock down one for Loudoun County. I understand it wasn't pretty, but we won! Link follows:

MR lives in Pennsylvania. My parents are from the same area that MR lives in.

Jewel who is also a contributor here (though she does not contribute much these days) is from Lancaster. She blogs at Tasty Indelicacies.

I'll let Midnight Rider know you posted this, so he can respond.

Charles -- I live in Pa. and just signed the petition albeit with my real name and the request not to display it.

Are you from this area as well?

I included this link in my signature, perhaps you may want to spread it around as well

it will display all the articles we have run on Gulen, most of them gleaned from the now defunct The Last Crusade blog.
