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.
