Haaretz yesterday cited an unidentified senior Israeli official who heard from the Americans that Iran is ready to stop all uranium enrichment of 20 percent, limit lower-level enrichment of 5 percent and scale back the number of centrifuges it is operating for enrichment.

Not destroy them mind you, just turn them off for while.

Iran also expressed willingness to reduce the operations of its most controversial nuclear facilities, and maybe, in the future, even open them to unannounced inspections.

That’s skillful negotiations, that’s how it’s done – and Bibi looks so unappealing with the yelling and the warning and the bomb cartoons, he’s so passe, so behind the times, like a man caught wearing last year’s tie length.

Yoel Guzansky, an Iran expert at the Institute for National Security Studies, and a former national security aide in the prime minister’s office, told the AP there will always be a gap between the U.S. and Israel due to their different military capabilities and the level of threat they face.

Truer words have not been spoken. So, according to Guzansky, Bibi is going to keep his shrieking level at 11, hoping to collect a response around the 7 or 8 mark. But there’s no way Israel will act alone against the Iranian facilities. It’s just not in the cards.

“Israel really only has one option,” said Guzansky, meaning it will accept whatever America dishes out. “The chance it will act alone after the Americans make a deal is miniscule.”

Come back for more grim perspectives on reality without delusions. I’m here all week.

  1. Netanyahu is a fool who is leading Israel to annihilation. The time for talk passed long ago. At this point, every time he continued to "warn the world" about Iran, he diminishes Israel's influence and power. He needs to stop talking and make the West begin to become unsure of what he's about to do which would rile world oil markets. Then issue an ultimatum to Israel's western "allies" and strike Iran.

  2. This came from a
    Marine's wife. It says it all:

    I sat, as did millions of other Americans, and watched as the government
    underwent a peaceful transition of power a few short years ago..

    At first, I felt a swell of pride and patriotism while
    Barack Obama took his Oath of Office.

    However, all that pride quickly vanished as I later watched 21 Marines,
    in full dress uniform with rifles,
    fire a 21-gun salute to the President.

    It was then that I realized how far America’s military had deteriorated.
    Every one of them missed the bastard.
