    No, unfortunately it didn't, and I've been a huge critic of that, too! See, I'm consistent.

Just because we are not willing to start yet another war for them and protentially expend thousands of American lives and hundreds of billions of dollars for a war in Iran does not mean that all of a sudden we are treating the country like ****.
    And what do we want from Israel?

    Yep, I'm sure it takes time, but Obama scuttled any chance for that budding Democracy to take shape, didn't he ?

    Your Bush obsession wont allow you to acknowledge this, but giving people who were once at the mercy of a sadistic Dictator the opportunity to participate in a Democratic process is a substantial accomplishment.

    Except that it can't be done. And **** your pretension about US benevolence. When it's in "US interests" to do so, it's had no problem overthrowing liberal democracies and replacing them with right wing dictators.

    This has really nothing to do with Obama. Nice try though.

    It's Official: The Pentagon Finally Admitted That Israel Has Nuclear Weapons, Too
    While the Washington press corps obsessed over Hillary Clinton's emails at the State Department, reporters were missing a far more important story about government secrets. After five decades of pretending otherwise, the Pentagon has reluctantly confirmed that Israel does indeed possess nuclear bombs, as well as awesome weapons technology similar to America's.

    Early last month the Department of Defense released a secret report done in 1987 by the Pentagon funded Institute for Defense Analysis that essentially confirms the existence of Israel's nukes. DOD was responding to a Freedom of Information lawsuit filed by Grant Smith, an investigative reporter and author who heads the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy. Smith said he thinks this is the first time the US government has ever provided official recognition of the longstanding reality.

    This is Obama....AGAIN...throwing a temper tantrum instead of acting like a adult and a Leader.

    You people defend him but why is beyond me. Even if you agree with his Policies how can you defend this ?
    this was payback
    no longer does israel have plausible deniability about its nuclear weapons capability
    now sign the NPT israel, or shut the **** up about iran seeking its own nuclear weapons to establish military parity
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    You have NO idea whether or not it CAN BE DONE.

    Like I said, it was scuttled by by the current Presidents STOOPID Foreign Policy decision to pull out ALL American Military assets.

    I can base my opinion on the verifiable fact that Iraqi's went from a brutal dictator to being allowed to participate in their own elections

    What do you base your opinion on ?

    Oh I know, its based on a irrational obsession with the manufactured evils of America and the last President.

    Your opinion isn't worth the bandwidth you just wasted posting it.

    So they shouldn't look out for their own protection and own interests because our executive branch has started a process which they have been assured for decades would never happen.

    That is crazy.
