    My guess is by August the President will be begging Israel to attack Iran.

    obama thinks that a war between Israel and Iran would ruin his reelection. He's demanding it not happen.

    Quite the contrary, it could put him over the top and he is demanding that it not happen because the timing is bad for him. He wants to make sure that nothing happens until...oh...August or September. Then:

    If Obama is ahead in the polls nothing will happen until after the election.

    If he is slightly behind in the polls he will authorize an Israeli strike and then go on TV saying how we stand by Israel in their time of need, we stand against the evil Iranians, etc. That will secure the Jewish vote (which right now seems to be in question) and gain support among some super-hawks due to a sense of patriotism.

    If he is moderately behind we will strike Iran ourselves to further enhance the above point.

    If he is far behind we will invade because the United States almost never changes Presidents in a time of war if it can be avoided. Which of course begs the question: "would Obama really invade Iran just to win the election?" IMO: "fuck yes, without hesitation, or a lost wink of sleep."


    So the issue right now is that Israel wants to get this done, Obama is desperately trying to get them to wait until it's to his political advantage, and they are saying "fuck you" as he has not exactly been their best friend in the world for the last four years, and they argue that a November strike may be too late.

    No one's invading Iran. It would be an air/naval war.

    It would certainly start that way, sure. It might stay that way...it might not. Just depends.

    You guys seem to forget..we've had this sort of fight with Iran before..

    In any case..Obama's strategy seems to harken back to George HW Bush/Bill Clinton's way of using military might without troops on the ground.

    Which is the way a technologically superior nation should fight third world cesspools.

    A ground war? Not likely.
