    I think, Obama would never admit this, but, I'll bet the thought has crossed his mind a few times.

    I guess??? But either way, do you agree we should go back in and re-capture them, since the deal appears to be off?

    A simple , yes or no will suffice.

    Gulf states condemn attempted 'coup' in Yemen, back president.....

    Gulf foreign ministers on Wednesday accused Shia militia in Yemen of attempting to stage a "coup" against President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi, a day after the Huthi fighters seized the presidential palace.

    "The states of the Gulf Cooperation Council consider what happened in Sanaa on Tuesday... a coup against the legitimate authority," the ministers said in a statement following an emergency meeting in Riyadh.

    The GCC also expressed support for the "constitutionally legitimate authority" of Hadi, and rejected "all measures aimed at imposing change by force".....snip~

    Then today.


    Yemen president quits, throwing country deeper into chaos.....

    "This is a coup," said Ahmed al-Fatesh, a hotel security supervisor, suggesting Hadi had been bullied from office. "The Houthis took power by force. Hadi is a legitimate president and was elected by more than 6 million Yemenis. Hadi tried to bring the political forces together."

    This was a reference to a standoff between Hadi and the Shi'ite Muslim Houthi movement which this week has been holding the president a virtual prisoner in his official residence.....snip~

    Your first mistake of many was making this a partisan issue. The reason Obama has P.M. Cameron lobbying the Senate is because there is a support for Israel on the left and a number of democrats that are not on board with the president and his Iran policies. As far as the hostility toward Israel that Obama brought with him into the presidency? Six years into his presidency clearly makes that case.

    unless he does something really stupid, like provoking Obama into withholding the Palestinian statehood veto at the UN
    I'll never be accused of being a fan of Obama's but I would never expect him to be so shallow and petty as to use a perceived or real personal snub as a reason to end long standing American foreign policy. Are you just being provocative or do you really have such little regard for President Obama?

    What evidence do you have of Iran being behind the coup in Yemen?

    It's only clear to partisans like you so why don't you elaborate on what Obama has done in his policy towards Israel that was not the policy of previous (and Republican) administrations. If it pertains to the Iranian negotiations, what is hostile to Israel about preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons?

    Aaaaah.....and here you thought it was just something from Dec. But then lets go back to May of 2014.


    UN Experts: Iran's pursuit of illicit materials appears to slow amid nuclear talks
    Classified UN document seen by Reuters,

    This is a completely different document and topic than the first one you linked..

    however, cautions that the Islamic Republic may be 'outsmarting' intelligence agencies in its pursuit of sensitive components
    .
    Key words, "may be".

    The report said it had become increasingly difficult to pinpoint any links between "dual-use" items - those with both civilian and military applications - that Iran has sought to procure and potential recipients in the Islamic Republic. But, the report cautioned, "this may be a function of more sophisticated procurement strategies on the part of Iran, which has developed methods of concealing procurement, while expanding prohibited activities. Such methods can also be used by Iran to procure and finance legitimate trade, which further complicates the efforts of states to identify illicit procurement."
    Another giant "may be".


    Despite the apparent dip in procurement activity, Iran has continued to try to obtain items that could play an important role in its enrichment of uranium, the report said. "Iran has been attempting to procure high-grade carbon fiber for use in the manufacturing of some of its centrifuge rotors," the experts said, adding that Tehran has also sought to procure aluminum and other dual-use materials. "Iran continues to make extensive use of front companies to procure items for prohibited activities. Some companies may be established solely for the purpose of prohibited procurement. Others may also be engaged in legitimate business.
    Another giant "may be".

    Sometimes Iran uses legitimate enterprises to acquire key technology. The report, which includes detailed annexes, cited an example of how Iran used its petrochemical industry as a facade to procure crucial items for its heavy-water nuclear reactor at Arak, a plant that has proven to be a big sticking point in Tehran's nuclear negotiations with the powers.....snip~


    UN Experts: Iran's pursuit of illicit materials appears to slow amid nuclear talks - Middle East - Israel News | Haaretz

    Funny how FP found that Report. Seems the charge was in there already and seen by Reuters back in May. Now FP cites a document compiled by the US and told by Diplomatic Sources that there was an increase in procurement. Stating exactly what Reuters Reported.
    Do you know whats funny. These are two different cited supposed reports. One is about Iran "may be" using domestic production to make parts needed for a reactor and nuclear materials.... The other is about Iran going on a "international shopping spree"....

    Amazing isn't it.....and certainly BO and his Team knew all along.
    Amazing what? A bunch of unproven accusations? A bunch of "may be"? You also forget that Arak is under routine exceptions with the latest agreement.

    Thanks for this. I want to point out that an earlier poster said that Obama showed his support for Israel by giving them $3 billion in military aid - it's why I asked the question. But I find it interesting that on the first page of the document you provided, it notes that in 2007, President Bush signed a 10 year, $30 billion military aid package for Israel to run through 2018, entirely through and past the Obama two terms. In effect, Obama had nothing to do with it - unless he voted for it while he was in the Senate. It would be interesting to know if he actually voted in favour of this aid package.
