Hey Netanyahu! Take that Red Line, and Shove…

I really want to finish that sentence. This guy has an itchy trigger finger. That’s fine – until he starts calling on the United States to draw that “red line” for Iran not to cross.

This is what trips me out. Last week, he said that since Washington refused to put strict limits on Iran, we lost any “moral right” to keep Israel from acting. Now, he says:

“We always reserve the right to act. But I think that if we are able to coordinate together a common position, we increase the chances that neither one of us will have to act.”

Oh so it’s, “you can’t tell us what to do but please help us do it?” What the hell?

Thank God Israelis and members of Netanyahu’s cabinet are divided on his stance, too. It will be harder for him to get the go signal to launch a strike against Iran. Still, he pushes us:

“You have to place that red line before them now, before it’s too late,” Netanyahu said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program.

Bull crap. We don’t have to do a damn thing just because you said so. I’m irritated as hell that he’s trying to bully us into taking this hard-line stance.

We should tread very lightly here since we’re talking nuclear weapons. I don’t want the US involved in some who’s-got-the-bigger-jimmy? contest, even if together with our “ally” Israel, it’s obvious we do. Why? What if they don’t give a crap and start firing? It would be, “Welcome World War III. We should have known you were coming.”
