Senator Boxer and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta at the Senate Armed Services Committee.

The last time the U.S. scored a decisive success, in killing Osama Bin Laden, they flew in on two Blackhawks and flew out cramped inside one, because one of the choppers crashed on landing.

The U.S. airforce is very good at one thing: carpet bombing. If you need to fill up the sky with flying death – no one can do it better than the U.S. Airforce.

If the plan is to do surgical strikes on the nuclear plants, the IAF will carry out the mission successfully. If the plan is to obliterate those sites from the face of the Earth – for that you must have the U.S. Airforce.

But the debate here is not, as I said, over security, but over submission. As Boxer concluded:

“I urge you to step back and clarify your remarks so that the world sees that there is no daylight between the United States and Israel. As you personally stated during an appearance with President Obama in March, ‘We are you, and you are us. We’re together. So if there’s one thing that stands out clearly in the Middle East today, it’s that Israel and America stand together.’”

Frankly, in light of the Boxer letter and Hillary’s Sunday speech – Bibi and the rest of us would be damned fools to believe it.

  1. Just more proof that the kapos of the politburo will go to any lengths to protect their massa. And as for Boxer’s alleged claims of supporting Israel and Jews, let’s remember how forcefully she refused to speak out against the attempts by cities in her home State to make Judaism illegal in 2010!

  2. Like many other Politicians so-called Israel supporters.. they only show their support when it’s beneficial to them personally. As Israel continues to get backed up into a corner, the real question is, will they show their support when Israel has no other choice then to defend it’s sovereignty. From the actions I have just witnessed this week, regarding Egypt and Libya.. I have my doubts.

  5. Can Ms. Boxer show how well her diplomacy is working? We are dealing with a terrorist group bent on the destruction of Israel. Someone please inform her what is going on in the Middle East.

  6. with that I am also very much afraid that they wont stand by Israel, and any treaty Obama signs he will renege on. I feel very sorry for Israel and its people being so alone, except for Canada who has severed diplomatic relationships with Iran.

  7. he idea that Sen. Boxer does not support Israel is one of the most slanderous lies that I have seen in this forum. She is not just one of the hundreds of people in Washington who votes the right way, she is a LEADER of the pro-Israel forces. Just to show one recent example, consider this:

  8. Answer my comment chuckie rather then obfuscate in your hallal kool aid slurping support of all things demoslamist!

    I STATED CLEARLY that boxer REFUSED to speak out against the attempts to make Judaism illegal in 2010 in SF and San Bernardino. Why do you dodge that? Answer the comment chuckie. Be honest for once. Answer the comment instead of your standard shuck and jive. Are you not embarassed (obviously not) that you are prepared to spin on a dive to promote anything this administration puts out? But then, I am sure you saw no problem with chairman barack tweeting on 9/11 campaign messaages and 30 minutes BEFORE the memorial for the four he murdered in Benghazi he tweeted for donations. I await chuckie!

  10. Really…I guess to you the requirements of a circumcisions are not part of Judaism. Obvipous who and what you are chuckie.. a resident apologist for the “g-d in his own mind” and his cadre of kapos. I bet you now also promote the canard of the “Israeli and 100 Jew financiers” of the truth of islam that cnn and nbc have been promoting

  12. The same way you have diplomatic talks with a nation with which you are at war: through third parties and back channels — and since 1945 through the UN. FDR even had a back channel to Hitler y"s. It led directly to the orderly surrender of Nazi troops in early May 1945.
