The good news last night was that although Netanyahu ridiculed Obama’s silly efforts to avoid war with Iran, the President hit back.
But Bibi is going to do what Bibi is going to do. His daddy is 102 and the boy needs to please him with just one more war before the old guy shuffles off to wherever really hateful rightists go.
So Israel television reports that the plan for attack is ready and will happen soon. Bibi can achieve a two-fer by attacking just before our election. He can bomb Iran (fun!) and that attack’s effects would defeat Obama and bring in his BFF, Mitt.
Is Bibi capable of it. According to Peter Beinart’s book, he does whatever his crazy old man tells him to do. And, when you are 102 years old (literally), what’s a few thousand dead people? And even a regional war?
It’s what you stayed alive for.
