Here is the scenario: Barack Obama wins the election. Israel concludes that there is no chance the Obama Administration has the wisdom or testicular fortitude to prevent the Iranians from attaining nuclear weapons. Israel sees a nuclear armed Iran as no different than a gas chamber armed Nazi Germany. If Iran attains nuclear weapon capabilities, there will be a second Holocaust. This is something that Israel can never allow to happen at any cost.
Israel has the ability to strike Iran with conventional and/or nuclear weapons. It is extremely difficult, if not impossible, however, without over-flying Iraq with aerial refueling in Iraqi airspace. Israel will conclude that, after Obama takes office on January 20th, they will lose the opportunity to gain the right to over-fly Iraq. They will immediately petition the lame-duck Bush Administration for the right to over-fly Iraq which will be granted. Israel strikes Iran sometime between election day and inauguration day.
Obama is required to immediately take a position on the war. Does he support Israel or leave her twisting in the wind? If he supports Israel, his core base of moonbats will turn on him. Is this what Biden was alluding to in his comments that Obama would be tested? If Obama chooses to support Israel, what will that mean? Will Iran make strikes on U.S. forces in Iraq as a result of Israel’s actions? Will Obama be required to increase the number of troops in Iraq as the region ignites in war? Rather than cutting military spending, will Obama be required to increase it? Will he need to reinstate the draft?
Or will he leave Israel twisting in the wind and stage a panicked retreat from Iraq? Will Iran make strikes on US troops pulling out through Kuwait? Will the Straights of Hormuz be shut down preventing the movement of armored assets being withdrawn from Iraq to pass? Will Iran invade a weak and defenseless Iraq?
If Americans are foolish enough to elect the jug-eared jackass from Hyde Park, hold on to your hats. It is going to be a wild ride.
