    Obama to Visit Israel, First Time as President......

    Well What do you know.....looks like Obama has to make a move and go to Israel. Now I wonder why he is all of a Sudden changing up his routine to make a Spring Visit. Think it has to do with Bidens Remarks on Iran? Seems the Israelis sent one here after Netanyahu was re-elected and after Israel hit those targets in side Syria. Now Iran has made a statement and told Israel they will regret this action they have taken.



    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will go to Israel in the spring, the White House said Tuesday, marking his first visit to the staunch U.S. ally since becoming president. While in the region, Obama will make stops by the West Bank and Jordan.

    Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed the visit to Israel in late January, when Obama congratulated Netanyahu on his success in Israel's recent election. The White House has not released the date of Obama's trip or details about Obama's itinerary, but Israel's Channel 10 reported that the trip had been scheduled for March 20.

    White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama would work closely with Palestinian Authority and Jordanian officials on regional issues during his visit to Jordan and the West Bank.....snip~

    Naturally the Palestinians and Any Sunni and Shia Arabs welcome this visit by Obama. I think Obama knows the Israelis will not wait for the US over the Issue with Iran. Hence this all out push to try and Bolster Obama's Credibility in the ME. Since his Policy has been a complete and utter failure.

    What does that have to do with Obama going there for the First time? Does the piece talk about the last 3 Presidents? Course there has been a change in policy including with the last 3 Presidents.....Correct?

    Your the one that brought it up..." his Policy has been a complete and utter failure." How has his policy been any different cuz if the policy has been the same dont know if you consider the last three presidents policy in the middle east "a complete failure" as well.

    Looks by my statement that I was stating there are differences.....huh? Can you say Bush and Clinton had as many engagements? How about as much trouble with Russia as we have today?

    Also why would you think the Media thinks it is relevant? Especially after Netanyahu was re-relected.....sent an envoy to Washington. Then hit targets inside Syria and then sent another envoy to Washington. Wouldn't you think there is some relevancy to this visit.

    So you cant answer the question on how his policy has failed or been relevant.

    Yes there is relevancy, never said there was none. Iran talks happening soon, Israel bombing Syria, Syria destabilized.

    [COLOR="#800000"]I just answered your question with the point of the engagements as well as Russian Policy[/COLOR]. Which would you prefer to look at? Monetary with his 5.5 Trillion dollars and 78 % increase. Or Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Syria. From Africa to the ME? Or would you go want to go with the UN Security Council and their problems with Rice. As well as many in the UN Human Rights Watch Groups? Another would be conducting drone strikes in Countries we are not at war with.

    Maybe he's going there because NK and Iran are on the cusp of nuclear weapons and Israel is our only ally in the region and has a ferocious military to back it up.

    Obviously, I'm just guessing since no dispatches from the WH have been delivered to me this evening.

    Its really hard to believe that Obama has been in office for over 4 yers and has never visited our strongest ally in the mid east but has no problem visiting the Muslim countries.

    Well I can see him talking about Iran.. Do you think the Palestinians and the Jordanians will be that much concerned about NK?
