RUSSIA’S ASCENDENCY – ISRAEL’S PATH TO DISASTER
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
I wrote during the 2008 US Election, that a victory for Obama would spell disaster for the USA, and the GREATEST threat Israel has ever faced since its REBIRTH in 1948.
UNFORTUNATELY I WAS NOT WRONG.
IN FACT – When Obama won the White House in 2008; America was still the only World Super Power, as Russia was still trying to keep itself together.
So, what did Obama do in his first year (2009)?
He began the process of surrendering American EXCEPTIONALISM, apologizing to the entire world for America’s past.
In March 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton promised to press the RESET Button for American/Russian Relations, as if there was something wrong with the way things were, but needed to sit around a campfire, roast some marshmallows, and sing Kumbaya with Russian Thugs to make the whole world a kinder and gentler place.
In April 2009 in Strasbourg France . . . Obama said: "There have been times where America has shown arrogance, and been dismissive, even derisive."
He kind of forgot to mention that the fields and cities of France and other European countries have been bathed in American Blood, not just once, but twice, so that the people of France and the rest of Europe could be FREE.
Also in April 2009, Obama spoke to the Turkish Parliament, where he compared the plight of the Palestinian people to the Jewish Victims of the Holocaust. And he extolled the great gifts and contributions Islam has made to the United States of America, without describing what any of those gifts were.
In June 2009, Obama told the Arab World at Cairo University; how wonderful Islam is. How incredible Egypt was. And how ready the people of Egypt were to seize the reins of Democracy. We all know how well that worked-out.
In September 2009, Obama cancelled the Defensive Missile Shield Treaty America had PROMISED the Czech and Polish governments after they both stuck their necks out to agree to it, leaving them HIGH and DRY, because he wanted Hillary Clinton to press that Russian/American RESET Button.
And what about Obama’s timetables for leaving Iraq and Afghanistan, letting (Sunni) Al Qaeda, the Taliban and Moslem Brotherhood, along with their sworn Shiite enemies know how long they would have to wait before they could resume their TYRANNIES.
OBAMA TELLS ISRAEL TO GO BACK TO THE PRE-1967 “BORDERS”:
On May 19, 2011 from the offices of the US State Department, Obama told Israel that if there was ever going to be peace in the Middle East, Israel would have to return to its Pre-1967 Borders with some minor “land swaps”.
HERE’S SOME PROBLEMS WITH THAT:
1 – There were no Pre-1967 Borders. There were Armistice Demarcation Lines dating back to 1949. And after the 6-Day War (1967), the UN issued Resolution 242 that declared all the Demarcation Lines as “DISPUTED” boundaries to be negotiated at a future date.
2 – The Territory Israel won in the 1967 Six Day Defensive War would by all NORMAL Conventions belong to the victor, had the VICTOR been any country other than the Jewish State of Israel.
3 – There are no such people as Palestinians, since there has NEVER been a country called Palestine. And even Yasser Arafat, the Father of the so-called Palestinian people was an Egyptian.
And if anyone is really interested in finding so-called Palestinians, look in Jordan, where as many as, and probably more than three quarters of the population consider themselves to be Palestinian.
In 100% DIRECT contrast though, there has been an irrefutable Jewish State (Israel) that dates back more than 3,000 years to King David and his son King Solomon whose capital was in Jerusalem.
So . . . what was Obama talking about when he SUGGESTED that there cannot be peace in the Middle East unless Israel agrees to return to the PRE-1967 Borders that never existed?
TO THE GREAT PERIL OF ISRAEL AND THE DEMOCRATIC WEST:
Whether by design, absolute incompetence, or because of extraordinary HUBRIS, Obama has lost American control of the Middle East. And because of his and Hillary Clinton’s ridiculous GULLIBILITY when it comes to the Russians, Obama has ceded to the Russians, the role that America has denied them since the end of World War Two.
THE BATTLE FOR SYRIA IS A MESS:
If Assad’s government survives, which I believe it will, it will become a Russian Mediterranean Stronghold with their Port Base of Tartus. And to show how important this is to the Kremlin, here are just three Moscow Initiatives that should have Israel and the West far more concerned than just somewhat:
1 – Against the wishes of Washington, and a personal face-to-face appeal from Netanyahu to Putin, the Russians are in the process of supplying Syria with S-300 Surface to Air Missiles, which will afford Assad tremendous anti-Aircraft protection, making it very costly for any air force, including Israel’s to penetrate Syrian airspace.
2 – The Russians are sending the latest State of the Art YAKHONT Surface to Surface Missiles to Syria.
These missiles are ship-killers. They fly at 2.5 times the speed of sound. Their range is 300 kilometers. They are virtually undetectable. And they are nearly impossible to shoot down or decoy away, rendering Israel’s Navy near impotent.
3 – For the first time in DECADES, the Russians have moved a considerable number of WAR SHIPS, estimated to be as many as 50 . . . with destroyers, landing craft, troop carriers, nuclear submarines and other assorted support vessels of their Pacific Fleet to the Mediterranean.
THIS ISN’T JUST AN EXCURSION . . . This is the real deal.
This is the Russians (Putin) telling OBAMA to take a hike. That the RESET Button is nothing like Obama and Hillary Clinton surmised . . . that Russia’s RESET Button has RESET Russia’s dormant quest for World Dominance, and here is where the Russians intend to make their PLAY.
Syria is not going to fall, because the Russians are becoming fully engaged. ALSO - Israel will have to rethink attacking any shipments from Syria to Hezbollah, because of the equipment the Russians are supplying to Syria, and the risk of actually hitting Russians in any attack.
And now that much of the Pacific Russian Fleet is in the Mediterranean, Russia’s other major client and ally in the region . . . Iran, is all but GUARANTEED that Obama’s empty threats of RED-LINES not to be crossed, are even EMPTIER now, than they were before, unless Obama wants to go to war against the Russians.
But, as Syria is ratcheting-up the provocations against Israel, as we’ve seen in the last few days along the Golan Heights, can Israel afford NOT to retaliate in a very big way before it becomes too late . . . even if it means ALL OUT WAR?
NONE OF THIS IS GOOD NEWS FOR ISRAEL AND THE WEST:
For Israel . . . it could very well lead to its destruction, since Russia’s historical disdain for Israel and Jews is no big secret.
BUT IT’S MUCH MORE THAN JUST GEOGRAPHY:
Because of the THREE massive Natural Gas Finds in Israeli Territorial Waters (Leviathan, Tamar, and Karish), containing a combined conservative estimated volume of MORE than 1 TRILLION Cubic Meters of Gas . . . Israel has virtually overnight become one of Russia’s single largest energy competitors.
Also – If the estimates are true, as they are very much pointing to, Israel in partnership with Canadian exploration companies have discovered as much as 250 BILLION barrels of Shale Oil in the Negev Desert, making Israel the THIRD largest Oil Reserve Country on the planet.
NATIONS HAVE GONE TO ALL-OUT WAR FOR MUCH LESS.
So . . . Here’s how it shapes up.
If Israel falls, which is a real possibility if the Russians decide to play for keeps . . . Russia gets 100% control of the Middle East and the World’s largest concentration of energy and Strategic placement.
And if Israel decides out of self-preservation to make energy deals and concessions with the Russians, because Obama has thrown Israel under the BUS, the Russians still win without as much as firing a shot, while Europe will be under Russia’s energy thumb.
To what extent is all of this possible and plausible? – Think about what is happening in the world, and how Obama has moved America from being the ONLY World Super Power to “LEADING FROM BEHIND”.
And now think about how brazenly Russia is challenging Obama’s VISION of a New America on America’s once upon-a-time Middle Eastern Home Field. Do you think the Russians would have ever done that to Reagan, Bush 41 or 43, or even Bill Clinton?
We should all have great fear for how America is cascading towards International irrelevance.
