And in other news of the Obama administration learning stuff like “insurance is complicated”, we get “if you take an actual position regarding regimes out to kill you, it could lead to war”.
Who knew? And so apparently the answer is to NOT take a position, and then stay our of war. Neville, call your office.
A top White House official has declared that Israel’s proposal that Iran totally dismantle its nuclear capacity in exchange for sanctions relief would likely lead to war.
In recent days, Israel has been warning against the deal being offered to Iran by the U.S. and five other countries holding talks with it in Geneva.
That position has put it at odds with the Obama administration and has led to a public war of words between Netanyahu and Secretary of State John Kerry.
Kerry said earlier this week that Israel has “every right” to voice opposition to a potential nuclear deal with Iran.
At the same time, he told reporters, Netanyahu’s fear that a deal would leave Israel vulnerable is unfounded.
According to some reports, the U.S. administration has been frustrated with Netanyahu’s warnings to the point that President Barack Obama has been refusing to accept Netanyahu’s phone calls.
