Brent At $126 As Israel Security Cabinet Votes 8 To 6 To Attack Iran

Zero Hedge -- Looking at the tranquil sea that is the S&P one may be forgiven to ignore the rapid intraday surge in Brent which was up over $3 in a few hours, approaching $126 once again. But why?..

Maybe ..this. According to Israel's NRG, in a just completed cabinet vote, for the first time Netanyahu has gotten a majority (8 over 6) supporting an Iran attack. NRG also notes that at this point Israel has decided to not wait until the US elections in November before proceeding with sending crude to the stratosphere. From NRG (google translated): "Israeli political sources believe that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a majority Cabinet support Israeli military action against Iran without American approval..He announced that he wouldn't hesitate to perform the operation without the approval of President

maybe Bummer will go to Jerusalem and bow down to Israel for having the GUTS to do what is needed while he kow-tows to Muslims.

I feel so sorry for the Israelis. They are under constant attack. On Netanyahu's previous visit to the White House he was blown off and told "I have to go have dinner with my family now." Talk about a slap in the face. Talk about no class. The president wouldn't dare treat somebody from Hollywood like that. He hasn't been in Israel's corner for a long time, and they know it. And how about the time in France when he thought the mike was off. He made a very classless remark about having to deal with Netanyahu every day. They're at the end of their rope and they may strike to avoid being annihilated. Now all of a sudden they're supposed to give the White House their strategy for attacking Iran? If you were them, would you?

BKool - "Iran fired over 200 rockets between Fiday last and this past Monday. This barrage affected 45% of Israel's population. How would Americans feel if we had 155 million people ducking into shelters?"

To his shame, President Obama offers ZERO help to the coming genocide of 6 million people again. Does that number ring a bell Mr. President? The world proclaimed it would not happen again. They lied.

Israel has a right to defend themselves as they see fit. As an ally the US just need to do what it thinks is in it's own best interest by majority vote. We need to go back to being a Republic as intended and quit policing the world.

Best not to trust this president before the election either.

So you are justified to strike first. How many times someone (friend or relative) say in anger "I'll kick your ass" or "I'll knock your brain off". Will you preemptive shoot the bastard? That were to distinguish balance brain from untrained sick brain.

Think about it for just a second, if someone were in a position to tell the US that they were going to wipe us off the face of the Earth, wouldn't you want your leaders to do a pre-emptive strike if necessary. They are surrounded by people that don't like them and don't really have many nations that would come to their rescue. Also, I'm not sure that obama would lift a finger to help them out either.
