    Re: Report: Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike

    I can believe the story and if it's true it shows that Pres. Obama has bigger balls than most people give him credit.

    Bibi is essentially going around sticking his hands in other people's cool aid living off the very protection the U.S. largely provides. For all those who are condemning Pres. Obama's actions, if true, I wonder if you'd been so negative if you learned that say...Germany...a U.S. European ally...would have tried to thwart Reagan's negotiations with Russia at the height of the Cold War?

    Apples and oranges, perhaps seeing as the world wasn't so "hot" back then. Still, the principle of the matter is the same. Folks who look at such a maneuver, if true, as an American President not supporting their Israeli ally, I think have it backwards. I see it as the reverse: An Israeli ally not trusting that its American ally truly has its back.

    If the Iran nuclear negotiations do succeed, it would mean peace for Israel for years to come seeing as their greatest geo-political threat in the region is Iran. Let the negotiations proceed. And if they fall threw, Israel can carry forward with their raid with no interference from the U.S. or the world.

    EDIT: WH deniers already on it.

    Let's have a better framing:

    That's part of the evidence?
    Yes, it is part of the evidence...

    ...as is the following from the start of the article you seemed not to have taken a few moments to read.

    There is more, but we have rules against posting too much, so you will have to tax yourself physically, as well as mentally (by having the fortitude to actually read it) by clicking the link and move your eyeballs across the screen.

    The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

    Following Obama's threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.

    Obama's threat... but who supplied the idea?

    An unauthorized military incursion into airspace the U.S. controls that is outright refusing instruction to turn back? They don't need orders from the White House to engage.
