Israeli Extremists STILL Trying to Start Iran War

23-02-2008 15:48

How I love that word, "demand" in this article!

Now, if these sanctions are to be passed by the Security Council, which unfortunate member of the Knesset gets to make those trips to Beijing and Moscow to get China and Russia to go along with further sanctions?

No one.

Because Israel knows that Russia and China will not change their positions on further sanctions.

How this may shake out is with Israel declaring the UN "irrelevant", which they will use as a justification for unilateral action.

Israel, of course, has one little, tiny problem which is not addressed in this article

Russian officials have stated that any attack against Iran will be considered an attack against Russia.

War with Russia, anyone?

I would like to hope that the policy makers in Israel are weighing this very heavily in terms of what their next actions will be if no further UN sanctions come about.
