Gen. Dempsey denounced a strike on Iran in the near future as “destabilizing” and “not prudent” over the weekend while speaking to CNN’s Israel-Firster, Fareed Zakaria, in regards to America and Israel’s effort to prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear warhead (or nuclear capability). The prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of the Zionist entity has called Dempsey’s statement “the US is adopting policies that will favor Iran, and not their historical ally: Israel“.
Discussing whether an attack on Iran seems worthwhile for the US military right now, Gen. Dempsey told Zakaria, “A strike at this time would be destabilizing and wouldn’t achieve their long-term objectives.”
Gen. Dempsey also repeated his 2008 evaluation of the Islam Republic, saying: “We are of the opinion that Iran is a rational player“. This remark angered Zionist Jew head of powerful Jewish think tank, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Dr. Richard N. Haass who said on MSNBC, today: “To call Iran a rational actor is code talk. Let me just make it clear, if you call them rational, that means that deterrence works and that means that you’re willing to live with an Iran that has nuclear weapons“. Apparently, the con-Zionist wants Americans to believe that Israel doesn’t have 240-400 nuclear weapons.
“Iran is unlikely to initiate or intentionally provoke a conflict,” US Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Ronald Burgess told a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing last week, adding that “an Iranian-led military action against the US would only be likely if the United States fired first“.
American intelligence believes that, if Iran is indeed developing a nuclear weapon as rumored, they do not stand to finish their research anytime soon. In the interim, the US hopes that diplomatic talks and negotiations will thwart that research before it matures. Israel, however, appears much more concerned and has condemned the US for not acting on the offensive already. Last month, Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon explicitly called the Obama administration “hesitant” in their unwillingness to attack, which was followed by a warning only a day later by the nation’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, in which he urged the US to “move from words to deeds.”
Last year, Obama’s selection of General Martin Dempsey as new Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was approved unanimously by the House under Israel Lobby (AIPAC) instruction. Amir Oren wrote in Israeli daily Ha’aretz (June 1, 2011) that Dempsey being a friend of Israel for a long time, brings good news for Israel on war against Iran.
Interestingly, Admiral Mike Mullen, Gen. David Petraeus, Panetta and Gen. Dempsey have all bullied Iran with “all options on table”. However, after US occupation forces’ defeat in Iraq by Maliki-Ahmadinejad shrewed politics and temporary closure of Strait of Hormuz without firing a single missile – Obama administration has come to the conclusion that a new military adventure in Iran on behalf of Israel is not worth for the risk for the time being. Washington now wants to wait for the results in Syria and Lebanon. Islamophobe Sen. John McCain while hugging Netanyahu in Jerusalem, agreed with Richard Haass’ statement.
Last year, Rep. Ron Paul, said that it’s high time for the US to learn to live with a nuclear Iran.
Netanyahu: The US Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff is 'serving Iran'!
"... Netanyahu, who in the past has called for expulsion of Palestinians from their West Bank home and boasted of derailing the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords, accused Dempsey of “serving Iranian interests,” according to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz (“The Land”), which wrote:“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.”Likely officials of the far right wing Likud Party were especially angered by Dempsey’s assessment that the Iranian leadership is made up of “rational actors.” Israel and its media agents in the United States have expended enormous resources in attempting to convince the US public that the Iranian leadership is made up of mad mullahs obsessed with the end of the world who would gleefully light the nuclear match that brought about an apocalypse. (All this completely untrue and mere racist pablum.) To have the top military man in the United States undo the work of millions of dollars worth of propaganda must have been galling indeed.Netanyahu’s charge that Dempsey is “serving Iran” is completely unacceptable and deserves a stern rebuke from the Obama administration if it is not going to make itself look like a complete set of wusses... ...If it is the fact, as the Israeli right wing kept loudly insisting, that Saddam Hussein was a dire threat to Israel, then they might show a little gratitude and respect to a man like Dempsey, who deployed to Iraq to take down that regime and build a new one.It is not OK that Netanyahu and Barak spoke this way about this man.Why Barack Obama continually lets Netanyahu humiliate him is completely beyond my understanding. He should call off the March 5 meeting now planned with Netanyahu and let him cool his heels till he apologizes.And, I’ll bet you that the supposedly super-patriotic Republican candidates won’t dare so much as say “boo” to Tel Aviv over this insult to Dempsey– in fact, the chicken hawks are likely to pile on him on behalf of their Christian and Jewish Zionist donors....."
