Obama and Romney: War No Matter Who Wins Election


Kurt Nimmo

Once again emphasizing there is no fundamental difference between Obama and Romney when it comes to attacking Iran, the American Jewish Committee has published the answers to a questionnaire sent to the candidates.

From the Jewish Telegraphic Agency website:

“I am prepared to use all elements of American power” to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, Obama said in the questionnaires released Oct. 18 by the AJC, “including a political effort to further isolate Iran, a diplomatic effort to sustain our coalition, an economic effort that has imposed crippling sanctions, and a military effort to be prepared for any contingency.”

Romney’s response was nearly identical:

“I will press for ever tightening sanctions on the regime, acting multilaterally where we can and unilaterally where we must, and leave no doubt in the mind of the regime’s leaders that the military option remains on the table.”

Romney tried to make political points by sucking up to Israel and the Israeli lobby in the United States: “Unlike President Obama, I understand that distancing the U.S. from Israel doesn’t earn us credibility in the Arab world or bring peace closer,” he said. “Instead, it encourages Palestinians to hold out and wait for Washington to deliver more Israeli concessions.”

Romney said he plans to create “regional directors” who “will possess unified budgetary and policy authority.”

The JTA’s response to this development: “With such powers concentrated in an individual, pro-Israel groups would likely closely watch and want to influence whomever a Romney administration would name to the Middle East post.”

In fact, pro-Israel neocons already dictate Romney’s Middle East foreign policy. Fifteen of the 22 members of Romney’s foreign policy team were policy advisers under Bush, and six of them are former members of PNAC, Joseph Sarkisian points out.

Neocons from the American Enterprise Institute, the Brookings Institute, and the Hudson Institute dominate Romney’s advisors. “The American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) thinks highly of these policy advisers, who are all ardent supporters of the Israeli desire to end Iran’s nuclear program with force if necessary,” writes Sarkisian.

“Just like in Iraq, there is no verifiable proof of WMD in Iran, yet once again the same group of people want to use the same methods to start a similar war for the interests of the few, with no regard for the consequences,” he concludes.

Poll results are, of course, highly misleading, but if we are to believe the latest results Romney and Obama are locked in a dead heat sixteen days out from the election.

Establishment fount Forbes predicts that if Obama gets re-elected, Israel will attack Iran in January, a move that will undoubtedly be supported by the United States.

Despite Romney’s coterie of neocons, Democrat Chuck Schumer believes Obama is more likely to attack Iran than his opponent. “I’ll tell you this on Iran, and I’ve said this to a couple of Romney supporters who agree, that if the sanctions fail, and military action is warranted, a re-elected President Obama is far more likely to launch that kind of military action, probably in concert with Israel, than would Mitt Romney,” Schumer told CNN in September.

Following Obama’s lackadaisical performance during the first debate, his administration “leaked” a plan for striking Iran’s nuclear facilities. CFR member and visiting scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, David Rothkopf, wrote in Foreign Policy earlier this month that the White House and Israeli officials “assert that the two sides behind the scenes have come closer together in their views [regarding Iran] in recent days.”

Rothkopf quoted a “source close to the discussions” as saying that a surgical strike aimed at Iran’s enrichment facilities “might take only ‘a couple of hours’” at best and would be conducted by air using bombers and drones.

Despite the outcome of the election, a strike on Iran – limited, surgical or otherwise – will occur within the next few months, if not weeks.

  1. wish to do something and ability to do something are two different things. I am sure, no matter what, USA and rest of west is not that brainless to repeat blunders (not mistakes) with in short span of time. World has yet to find cure for the diseases of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Libya etc. Let's assume you were successful in destroying Iran….what about the aftermath…West and East, both will suffer….this suffering will continue beyond the control of anyone….Israel, USA and rest of the West is blessed with beautiful brains. I am sure they will avoid any such irrational and emotional act which will bring disaster not only to their own door steps but will plunge the whole world in an infinite uncertainty.

    Romney is a war hawk and will do as he is told by Israel. The Muslims have just as much right to hold positions in the U.S. government as dual citizenship zionists do. Israel is the biggest threat to peace in the mideast and they are committing genocide on the Palestinians
    which is what happened in Germany during WW II. Whereever Israel is involved, war will follow!!

  3. Elaine says:

    He has already began pandering to the Muslims by planning to use U.S. Tax $ to implement a Charter School for Islamists.
    He is straddling both Countries; and WE CANNOT DO THAT.
    Islam SHOULD NEVER BE a part of America.

    My words are weak vs. what I want to say. WE CANNOT …. ABSOLUTELY CANNOT turn our backs on Israel. They are a civilized nation. NAME ONE nation under Islam; and anyone idiot could understand why we CANNOT pander to them.

      Israel is SO CIVILIZED… Doing today what they accused Germany of Doing during WWII. To Zionist scum like you it is Civilized to Fire Rockets in to a Palestinian Refugee Camp and Kill Unarmed people living in Tents. By that same logic, it was Civilized for the German Wermacht to round the Jews up into Labor Camps and Kill them when they got out of line. Zionists are such Hypocrites ….Israel is the New Nazi Regime of the Middle East. Level a Palestinian Neighborhood with Artillery and Air strikes on Monday, Kill all the Palestinian survivors by Tuesday , Move in with the Bulldozers on Wednesday and start building New Jewish Settlements by Thursday. REAL CIVILIZED!… Satan’s “Chosen People!” The Jews might own the World’s Media Giants and censor what you see, hear and read but The Rat Bastards don’t Control the Internet where you can find hundreds of photos of the Jews Victims…Dead Palestinian Children. Satan’s “Chosen People” CAN NEVER HIDE THE TRUTH!

    Meet the new Bosstein – Same as the old Bosstein

    • Elaine says:

      On all of the blogs, there were several of us, literally, kicked off…banned… because we attempted to “upload” video(s) with Romney speaking…out of his own mouth what he was/is all about.
      This was BEFORE he was the official nominee.
      What is highly disturbing to me is that the ONLY TWO who spoke out VERY clearly about the Muslims infiltrating OUR Federal Govt. and banning Sharia Law WERE CAST ASIDE (Michelle Bachman and Newt Gingrich) to make room for Romney to run.
      It doesn’t matter if you do or don’t like either one. The issue is THEY WERE THE ONLY ONES SPEAKING OUT AGAINST HAVING MUSLIMS IN OUR GOVERNMENT.

          Elaine should use one of the Photos of the Hundreds of Dead Palestinian children Murdered by the IDF as her Profile Picture. That would be the TRUE Ode to Jewry. Show your Scumbag “Chosen People” for who they TRULY ARE: Murderers, Thieves, Rapists of the Earth, Vampires who drink the Life Essence of Once Great Nations, Parasites that feed off of Freedom and Prosperity while Killing the Host. How about a Big Jew Tapeworm wearing a Yamulke.
