Articles of the Day 1/23/14: Pride goes before destruction
“The United States seems to be retreating from the Middle East, a position that frightens many Arabs as well as the Israelis. They see the drift toward the appeasement of Iran as a sign that this administration is prepared to accept a compromise with Tehran that will leave the nuclear threat in place. Under these circumstances, it’s hard to blame the Israelis for believing that Obama can’t be trusted. American friends of Israel—including those who voted for Obama—have good reason to take a long, hard look at the Israeli poll results and reconsider their longstanding unblinking trust in this president.”
It comes down to credibility, and at the moment, the President of the United States has none both at home and abroad.
“Then, he highlighted the importance of manned intelligence platforms versus drones, unveiling a subtle competition with UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) crews: piloted planes can observe ground targets from a greater distances, and from higher altitudes, staying out of the envelope of surface-to-air missiles. Furthermore, the “Tzufit” turboprop are faster than drones (hence it can quickly be diverted to follow a “target of opportunity”) and is less affected by bad weather.”
Even though Israel leads the world in UAV technology they have not forgotten the value of manned surveillance assets.
“Jordan is considering a peaceful nuclear program as a “strategic option,” Minister of State for Media Affairs Muhammad al-Momani said.”
We knew it would happen. Saudi Arabia has already decided to go nuclear now Jordan has decided to as well. Don’t be fooled they are going for it and it won’t be peaceful. Because Iran was allowed to get this far all the Arab states in the region are freaking out. When nukes start popping off in the Middle East the blame lays squarely on Obama. He chose appeasement over strength. Bad move brother.
“The Fatah party of Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has posted threats to bomb Tel Aviv on its official Facebook page.The threats came in the form of a video by Fatah’s armed wing – the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade – which threatened to turn Tel Aviv “into a ball of fire”, as well as escalated rocket fire on Israeli civilians.”
Yet when the talks fail Israel will be blamed. The Palestinians don’t want peace. But all the Leftest politicians ignore (and want you to ignore) the truth. The heart of these people is harden to the point God has given them over to their pride.
Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
