Israel does not need the "approval" of Obama to defend its self. At times I seriously wonder if Obama is the least bit concerned whether Iran attacks Israel.

Israel has to take care of Israel. They are the ones sitting on a ticking time bomb over there. We are just a half a planet away from reality on how they live their daily lives over there.

If we are exporting more than we use, then there are plenty of wells now to fulfill our needs if it weren't being shipped to foreign countries that hate us in the first place Time to use common sense but unfortunately there is none of that in the WH or Congress at the present time.

Obama wanted the attack after the election so that he can gain votes from the Jewish Americans. An early attack will show Obama's true colors and drive the voters away from him.

I'm not too sure how reliable this "Zero Hedge" source is. Need more sources than this one.

Prices have gone wild as BHO wants them to. Skyrocket. Done. Promise kept.

If there is a war the price of gas will zoom to $10 and beyond.

This is just my opinion.

The USA has given Israel so much military hardware that they are the top dog in the MidEast and they've never been afraid to use it . This conflict has been ongoing since BC and it will never end .

Know what prices will do upon certain actions it's important to see who's buying and selling before such actions.
