Two days ago Obama held a press conference in which he openly prevaricated (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/live-obama-press-conference-iran-israel-and-netanyahu-meeting)and disinformed the world about the true nature of his meeting with Israel PM Netanyahu. Today we find what was truly discussed, courtesy of Israel's Maariv newspaper, Spiegel (http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/0,1518,820133,00.html) and Reuters (http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=de&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fde.reuters.com%2Farticle%2FworldNews%2FidDEBEE82707Q20120308), which all tell us that it was a simple case of quid pro quo, namely that Barack Obama would supply Israel with bunker-busters and refueling planes if Bibi promised to delay an Iran attack until after the presidential election. The implication is simple - avoid an oil price shock this summer and delay it until next winter when Obama will be safely in his throne for another 4 years, at which point US citizens can fuel their cars with combustible urine following nights of binging on Everclear in hopes of ending their sorrows with alcohol poisoning, or better yet, all be in possession of the heavily subsidized flaming half ton block of metal known as the Obama Pinto, er, Volt (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/presenting-obama-volt).
Some more details on the latest horse trade from Israel Insider (http://israelinsider.net/profiles/blogs/report-netanyahu-oked-delay-of-iran-attack-till-after-the-electio):

The US will supply Israel with bunker-busting bombs and refueling planes in return for delaying a strike against Iran until at least the end of the year, Maariv reported on Thursday. During their meeting earlier this week in Washington, Barack Obama promised Benjamin Netanyahu the latest deep-penetration arms from the US arsenal as well as airborne tankers to refuel strike jets necessary for an Israeli attack on Iran. In return, Israel will agree to not take any action until after the upcoming US presidential elections in November 2012.

Although rumors of the possible supply of new bombs and planes began even while Netanyahu was still in the US, Maariv’s claim, based on Western sources, is that supply of the equipment is conditional on postponing an attack. Obama gave Israel neither a green light for an attack, nor a red light, but rather a “bright yellow light,” sources told Maariv, adding that the yellow light is nearly red. Obama told Netanyahu that an Israeli attack, uncoordinated with the US, will have the most serious implications on regional stability and relations between the two countries. Maariv said that sources close to the recent meetings in Washington reported that it will be “difficult, if not impossible” for Israel to ignore Obama’s warnings.

Central to the difference of opinions is at what stage of the uranium enrichment process it will become necessary to use military force. According to intelligence reports, Iran has succeeded in enriching 120 kilogram (265 lbs.) of uranium to 20 percent purity. To make a bomb the Iranians require 250 kg (550 lbs) of 90% pure uranium. However, enriching from 20% to 90% is a relatively fast process, meaning Israel may see its window for action closing. According to Maariv, the US is prepared to wait until Iran has 250 kg of 20% rich uranium, but Israel considers the current developments beyond its own red line for action.

Perhaps it is time to make the presidential brent contango hump just a little bigger?

It's inevitable that there will be a strike on Iran. Obama wants to wait until after the election, Israel will want it earlier.

For me it's more about how Obama is more concerned with himself and his re-election. Than issues of war and foreign policy. His election comes first and the hell with the consequences and ramifications of attacking Iran. Pretty disgusting.

We can't control what Israel wants to do. They seem hell bent on going to war with Iran. I say we just keep our hands out of the matter and just watch them rip each other limb from limb.

Unfortunately with a region that has most of the worlds proven oil reserves we can't just sit back and let it play out.

So we make back room election deals to help start a war that will have huge consequences and blowback? Which by the way we will share the brunt of. Obama is playing politics while enabling and supporting what would be a catastrophic decision by Israel. Obama should have told Israel that they are on their own when it comes to attacking Iran. While explaining how these actions would have serious negative effects on our country, the world and our economy. Instead he's worried more about his election and using our lastest weapons and tech to convince Israel not to screw up his chances.

I will say that Obama does not want a strike on Iran before the election. As for Israel they are perfectly within their rights to launch a strike as the Iranian leaders have said in the past they wanted Israel wiped off the map.

The people I feel sorry for are the Iranian people who will be caught in the middle of those. I don't trust any country with nuclear weapons that have religious fanatics as their leaders and make a statement like they did on Israel.

There will be a strike on Iran this year as I don't see them backing down. If Israel goes alone it would probably be June/ July. If its the USA probably in December.

To have a third world war you need China or Russia involved. Highly doubt that will happen. China needs Europe and the US markets too much. Russia will bitch and complain but that will be it. Besides if the US attack they will probably wipe out Iran's air defenses which Russia will be more than happy too help rebuild and all the cash that comes with it.

Those Middle Eastern countries don't hate Israel as much as the US media would have you believe.

Saudi Arabia constantly is making back door deals with the Israelis, ditto for a lot of the other "powers" in the region. It's merely business. They just feign outrage to show their populace that they like to act like they care once in awhile.

No one wants the Iranians to have nukes including the other middle eastern countries. There is no way the Saudi's are going to let Iran have nukes without themselves also having a nuke deterrent. It will lead to an arms raise in the middle east. That's the last thing the west want is a bunch of autocratic regimes in the east with nukes.
