Israel’s window-of-opportunity to take-out Iran’s nuke shrinking!

30 Jan

Imminent action to eliminate, or at least curtail, Iran’s nuclear activity, is in the offing. If the United States, its allies, as supported by the [Arab] Gulf States who fear Ahmadinejad’s Iran, leaves the actual action to Israel, one can count on something to happen very soon. The US leaving Iraq’s airspace under Iraq’s control, and the Islamic Brotherhood in process of taking control of Egypt and the Suez Canal, Israel is realizing that its window of opportunity is narrowing.

Additionally, the fact that this is an election year in the United States; Israel must act itself if any American President could be in a position to take the necessary action against Iran. As supportive as President Obama has been to Israel, and tough words from Secretary Pennetta about Iran’s nukes, Israel cannot be certain that another Obama Administration could deal more effectively with Iran. Adding all the facts that relate to Iran’s looming nuclear threat, Israel may be forced to move in the very near future.

Also, as cynical as this may sound, Israel, and the “free world,” must decide if its future should be left in the hands of the United States with Obama as President, or if it makes sense to wait and hope for a Republican Administration that will very likely more aggressive in dealing with Iran.

With Mubarak out of the way, the Islamic Brotherhood gaining control, and the looming Sharia law in Egypt, using the Suez Canal on the way to the Persian/Arabian Gulf may not be an option still available to Israel. The United States withdrawal from Iraq may complicate the air route that Israel may need to follow to get to Iran, when the time comes.

Since the Saudis and other Gulf states are as fearful of a nuclear Iran as is Israel, Israel already has a tacit approval to use that airspace on the way to Iran, Israel is left with two, rather than the three options they had before Egypt’s ouster of Mubarak. When Mubarak was in power Israel did use the Suez Canal to send a number of submarines to the Gulf, in order to test the options of using missiles, and perhaps in some areas actual the landing of special troops.

Israel’s options presently include air, and covert land activity; it may also use its special troops, if conditions dictate. The facts that options are reduced, and Iran is getting closer, and closer to getting enriched Uranium, Israel’s window of opportunity is narrowing, imminent action against Iran’s nukes is now likely to happen sooner, rather than later.

Would you buy a used car from Newt Gingrich?

22 Jan

Befor you vote, or answer poles about a candidate, you should ask youself : Would I buy a used car fro that person?

I would have no problems buying a used car from three of the four GOP candidates still in the race; I would not buy one from Newt Gingrich.

Newt Gingrich is a very smart man, perhaps too smart to be President of the United States. In the debate during which he was asked about the ABC interview with his second wife. Mr. Gingrich showed how quick, intelligent, but unscrupulous, he is; the ex-Speaker ignores the facts and attacked the media, the carrier of bad news, if you will. The crowds loved him and cheered, but the fact remains, he ignored facts, changed the subject, and made it appear that those who informed the public of the events of which he was guilty, were the culprits, removing the burden from him.

Newt Gingrich habitually twists fact to suit his purpose. His ethics situation at the House of Representatives was a case in point. The ex-Speaker convened the IRS that classes he gave were educational, when in reality they were very partisan, and should have been taxes as a political effort.

Would you buy a use car from Newt Gingrich? I would not!

Gingrich ethics violations: His words don’t count!

Gingrich ethics violations: His words don’t count!

His income and source of most of his income suggest that the ex-Speaker is a lobbyist; no historian, who he claims to be would be paid millions from an entity involved in real estate. Mr. Gingrich often speaks words that do not seem to be consistent with facts. The issue of his ethics violations is a case in point. I heard some of the ex-Speaker classes; his claim that they were non-partisan is clearly false; the IRS should have classified them as political, and treated in that manner.

Words from the ex-Speaker about his ethics violations are not going to clean the slate! Unless Mr. Gingrich’s words are accompanied with a release of all formal documentation associated with the hearings, and a formal release of those involved in the investigation of their confidentiality obligations, the ex-Speaker will, as he should, remain guilty in the eyes of the public. Mr. Gingrich, a very ambitious man, would not have resigned his seat in the House of Representatives if there were no fire behind the ethics violations smoke.

The only way Mr. Gingrich can clean the slate is by allowing Pelosi, and all other involved in the investigation to speak about it without violation any confidentiality obligations, while at the same time release all formal documents related to that investigation. Where there is smoke there is fire!

Mr. Gingrich would not have resigned his position in the House if he did not do anything wrong! If the ex-Speaker wishes to be elected to the highest office in the land, the least he can do is come clean and allow the public to know who he really is!

Expect: 2012 Palin/Gingrich GOP ticket!

22 Jan

The 2012 GOP ticket: Sarah Palin with Newt Gingrich as her running mate!

Even though the quitting-Governor lady of Alaska is totally unqualified for the job of President, she has shown excellent political judgment. She knew that she could not be competitive in the debates (her voice, if nothing else,) semi endorsed Gingrich so he “owes” her, and is keeping her name in front of the public, just enough, not to be destroyed by the primary process.

Just like Romney’s bet: $—-.00 on: A 2012 Palin/Gingrich GOP ticket!

Evangelism and Gingrich: An Oxymoron!

21 Jan

Evangelism and Gingrich, an Oxymoron!

If there ever was a mismatch between behavior and belief, the United States’ ex-Speaker of the House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich, is a great example of such situation.

If, as the pundits predict, Mr. Gingrich does well with the evangelistic people of South Carolina, one could easily lose respect for those who put, what they must perceive to be expedience, ahead of religious conviction.

Ex-Speaker Gingrich converted to Catholicism after his two major infidelities, and he asked forgiveness, he repented…But, after two failed marriages, and being found guilty of ethics violation at the House of Representatives, does it appear as if the Speaker’s character make him suitable for the highest office of the United States?

Ex-Speaker Gingrich is a smart person, but the man is clearly an opportunist who puts his own personal interests at the forefront of everything in his life; is that the kind of man the United States wants to be its President? I think not!

“Harder to govern with [destructive] media;” isn’t this a democracy? Mr. Gingrich. “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!”

“Harder to govern with [destructive] media;” isn’t this a democracy? Mr. Gingrich. “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!”

To Gingrich: If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!

Newt Gingrich says that it is too difficult to manage where the media can be dig into one’s personal life. Gingrich leaves out the fact personal life is a measure of character, and character is the most important trait a President must possess.

The ex-Speaker, Newt Gingrich, takes liberties with facts, as well as with morality in order to make his case. The ex-Speaker is willing to sacrifice morality and good behavior for votes. For example, in South Carolina with 28% African-American population the ex-Speaker feels free to say things that are offensive to that minority, things that he would never dare use in the general election, should he become the GOP nominee.

Nick Santorum gave a good view of the ex-Speaker: A man with grandiose ideas, but without the discipline, character, or ability to deal with details, to carry out any of his ideas.

The Republicans would make a major mistake if they select Newt Gingrich to be their Presidential candidate. Such selection would give the GOP a black eye that would require many years to overcome!

Gingrich: A bundle of contradictions!

17 Jan

Newt Gingrich is a bundle of contrudictions…he claims to be a historian when in reality he is a professional politician. He complains about Mitt Romney’s wealth while bragging that he does not need lobbying income since he gets $60K per speech that he gives.

He received $1.6 million from Freddie Mac and Fannie may for advice as a historian, when his knowledge as a historian has to be with Belgian policy in Africa, a very relevant bit of knowledge on United States real-estate business.

The ex-Speaker of the United States, Newt Gingrich attempts to present himself as an intellectual with academic credentials when in reality the ex-Speaker is simply a professional politician.
