THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, feigning to want to avert a nuclear war in the middle east with their feckless…
“Feckless?” FECKLESS? I’d say it’s all fecked up.
(Your accent is slipping, Dolly.)
…feckless dealings — or lack of them — with the thugocracy of Iran and their throwing of Israel under the bus, will — as all such leftist pusillanimity always does — actually bring about that war.
Hasten it, even.
By withdrawing support from Israel — possibly, as one “wit” (quoted here by Flea) couched it, cutting off the fuel and ammunition — Obama will force the Israelis to act precipitously in order to avert (there’s that word again) a plainly inevitable catastrophe. Foreseeing that emboldened Arabs and Persians, perceiving a possibly fatally weakened Israel will attack — possibly on multiple fronts — Israel will seek to protect its tiny and fragile core by striking outwards at a time and place of its own choosing.
Probably against Iran’s nukes.
Probably sparking a conflict which will quickly reach nuclear temperatures.
Thus so-called “progressives” (scorn quotes) and their desires for “peace” actually bring about war.
Not to mention that the abandonment of Israel to its own devices is morally indefensible.
