Ecua-Door: Julian Assange Granted Asylum...Now If He Can Just Get To The Airport...
The commonly paranoid and easily panicked Israeli public is uncommonly exercized currently…seems their own media has been grinding out speculative articles suggesting a military strike against Iran's nuclear sites is imminent. Weeks not months is the word on the street at the moment.. Because, Hey, who doesn’t want to csh in (Or perhaps cash out) on the American presidential election. The Israelis are apparently betting that
it could be difficult and damaging for President Obama to withhold his backing in the face of a hawkish and vehemently pro-Israel opponent, Mitt Romney, who has already indicated his support for unilateral action by the Jewish state.
Yesterday, an article in the rightwing Ma'ariv paper suggested that Netanyahu and Barak have set a deadline of 25 September for Obama to clearly state that the US itself will take military action. The date is the opening of the UN general assembly in New York, and also the eve of Yom Kippur, one of the most significant dates in the Jewish calendar.
The implication is that, in the absence of a public declaration, Israel will press on with its own plans to strike at the Iranian nuclear programme.
