    Israel Not Happy With US Senior Officials.....

    Earlier Tuesday, Haaretz reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and other senior officials had protested over recent comments by senior American officials critical of any Israeli attack on Iran, saying this criticism "served Iran's interests."
    A senior Israeli official said Netanyahu and Barak told Tom Donilon, U.S. national security adviser who has been in Israel this week, of their dissatisfaction with the interview given by Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, to CNN on Sunday.

    The Israeli officials also objected to a number of briefings senior American officials gave American correspondents, who wrote in recent weeks about a possible Israeli attack in Iran.

    The story that angered Netanyahu most was an NBC broadcast two weeks ago saying Israel would attack Iran's nuclear facilities with Jericho missiles, commando forces and F-151 jets.....snip~

    "We made it clear to Donilon that all those statements and briefings only served the Iranians," a senior Israeli official said. "The Iranians see there's controversy between the United States and Israel, and that the Americans object to a military act. That reduces the pressure on them."

    Donilon also met a team of Israeli experts from the ministries and intelligence agencies, headed by National Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror, who coordinates the Iranian portfolio. He also met Mossad chief Tamir Pardo, Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz and Military Intelligence head Aviv Kochavi.

    All the officials told Donilon that the pressure and sanctions on Iran must be increased, especially to avoid having to use military force.

    The talks between Israel and the United States on the Iranian nuclear issue will continue on Thursday, when U.S. National Director of Intelligence James Clapper comes to Israel for talks with intelligence and defense establishment heads.

    The White House said on Monday that Donilon invited Netanyahu to a meeting with President Barack Obama on March 5.....snip~

    Iran and Syrian regimes need to be knocked out. It's just a matter of time before the inevitable happens.

    Well Assad's regime is in some trouble now.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Yeah, and that's putting more pressure on Iran. We better hope Iran blinks or all hell is going to break loose. I say Iran blinks.

    From a humanitarian perspective, the strife in Syria is terrible. Looking at it only in terms of the U.S. interests in the area, I'm not at all certain this is bad thing.

    I agree but I too feel the risk of sounding ghoulish.

    I don't want to sound callous. It just seems that there will always be violence in that part of the world, whether it is Assad in charge or whatever strongman replaces him.
