Crisis in U.S.-Israel Relations

White House Thinks “Chickenshit” Bibi Won’t Bomb Iran
Today, Jeffery Goldberg has written an explosive piece in the Atlantic, saying the White House does not believe Israel has the guts to bomb Iran. Goldberg, who commands vast knowledge of U.S.-Israel relationship, quotes senior officials in Obama Administration as describing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu as “chickenshit” , “coward” , and having “no guts.”

“The good thing about Netanyahu is that he’s scared to launch wars,” the official said. “The bad thing about him is that he won’t do anything to reach an accommodation with the Palestinians or with the Sunni Arab states. The only thing he’s interested in is protecting himself from political defeat… He’s got no guts,” the official said.

Another senior official describes Netanyahu as “chickenshit” on peace process, and a “coward” on the issue of Iran’s nuclear threat: Ultimately Bibi couldn’t bring himself to “pull the trigger.”

thanks for the link. good to read that the US admin is giving Netanyahu exactly what the creep deserves.

hopefully, the US will go on to give the creeps running Iran what those slimy folks have earned should they fail to give up the nuclear weapons development program.
