No wonder that both the Israelis as also the Arab allies are uncertain about the steadfastness of Washington. One of the biggest problems of the Arabs is that Washington leaves its intentions unclear. Read more:
Two days ago I quoted the following: “The Gulf States gear up for the confrontation with Iran. Even so the USA and Israel still hold back: On the Gulf they prepare themselves for the conflict with Iran.”
That was a headline I have read, and today I read the article to it and thought about it.
The seriousness of the situation is that the states, which are first affected by the thread through Iran, are fully aware of the situation and that the United States act if it did not exist, because if it would exist for them, then they would not withdraw their troops from Iraq.
The serious difference between the former administration under Bush and the present under Obama is that under Bush the political aim was to promote free democratic conditions worldwide and with it to promote the concerns of the own country, and that under Obama the political aim is to promote the personal ambitions of the president, and they consist of gaining supremacy and this under all circumstances and may it be to the detriment of the own country. When the loss of the own country or the loss of his own people brings him closer to his aim, then they will be accepted.
The withdrawal from Iraq expresses this clearly. It certainly corresponds with the feeling of the public, but contradicts completely the situation. The general feeling of the people is used to promote personal ambitions. A war against Iran would also hardly find the support of the people and this seems to be obviously the excuse of the American administration to not take action against Iran. Public opinion would only then support a war against Iran after very considerable damage has been caused by Iran, when the whole world has become a trouble spot. And this will probably also be used by the administration towards Israel, why the USA do not act against Iran, and what is still more important, why also Israel is strongly pressed by the USA, to not act against Iran. The Israelis however will interpret this in that way, that they are getting used by the USA as bait, exactly the same way as the Americans prepare Iraq as bait. The Israelis seem to have recognized this very well, and their politics towards the USA has changed accordingly, not that they will now attack Iran or will try to eliminate important installations there, but probably more that they will very generally prepare themselves in such a way that Iran will keep away from Israel for the time being to more concentrate on softer targets, first maybe on Iraq and then perhaps on Lebanon. But the Israelis will hardly rely on the Americans. The Iran will probably also keep away from the Gulf States because they seem to have the will to defend themselves.
Now I will quote some passages from the above mentioned article, which show what difficulties political observes have to grasp Obama’s aims:
And still nobody in Washington seems to know how the president would decide, ...
Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel certainly tries again and again to dispel the impression that Obama has decided to be able to live with Iran’s bomb. Nevertheless the USA have never declared if need be to hinder Tehran by force. That would however considerably aggravate the political pressure on Tehran. But the government would with it commit America in such a way, which the president obviously does not want. No wonder that both the Israelis as also the Arab allies are uncertain about the steadfastness of Washington.
One of the biggest problems of the Arabs is that Washington leaves its intentions unclear. “Several Arab officials have complained towards me that the Obama government does not communicate its intentions, not even in a general sense”, writes Goldberg. He quotes a not closer named Arab foreign minister with the words: “The best way to prevent an attack on Iran is, to let the Iran believe, that the USA are about to attack Iran. We must know the intentions of the president in this matter. We are his allies.”
Who however hopes for insights into Obama’s intensions does not get cleverer through this weeks armament deals.
That then were the quotations from above mentioned article.
Obama obviously wants a destabilized situation in the region because otherwise he would not destabilize it due to the fact that he weakens Iraq internationally, which is also especially weak on the domestic front. He supports the destructive principle. There he can collect points. Constructive politics are not his strength. When he succeeds in moving an aggressor to attack and to cause considerable damage and to get the whole world worried, then he can act fully destructively and swing himself up to be the hero of the world.
So the observers see that Obama does not want Iran to feel that he might attack it. But they do not understand why Obama does this. He does it because he wants Iran to think it can start aggressive action without being hindered by the USA. He wants Iran to think that the USA will stand by idly, that the USA is weak and undecided. His whole aim is to cause Iran to start a war.
Obama is not interested to destroy some installations in Iran or to prevent Iran to build the bomb. His aim is to destroy the whole country. And he will also try to convince Israel that it is far better to get rid of Iran, or of the present government there, completely, than to just bomb some strategic places. And Israel might comply with his wishes.
And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power. And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.
That is Daniel 8:5-7.
And this scenario could then trigger off many of the other prophecies. The traditional allies of Iran might then feel to have to take action. Even China might feel to have to get involved.
