World may back Iran op as part of deal

 ... and the Foreign Policy Asshole of the Year Award goes to ...

A deal taking shape between Israel and Western leaders will facilitate international support for an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities in exchange for concessions in peace negotiations with the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, The Times reported Thursday.

According to one British official quoted by the paper, such an understanding could allow an Israeli attack "within the year."

The report in the UK paper quoted unnamed diplomats as saying Israel was prepared to offer concessions on the formation of a Palestinian state as well as on its settlement policy and "issues" with Arab neighbors, in exchange for international backing for an Israeli operation in Iran.

"Israel has chosen to place the Iranian threat over its settlements," one senior European diplomat said.

According to the Times report, the passage of two Sa'ar 5-class Israeli Navy ships through the Suez Canal on Tuesday was a message to Iran and part of preparations being made by Israel for the possibility of a strike.

My guess is that those Israeli warships are there to be sacrificed as a false-flag attack by Israeli/American units so the USA will have the excuse it needs to join the attack.

Israel knows damn good and well there's no way it can take on Iran in a fair fight and would have to go nuclear within a day or two.

Why waste your nukes when you can trick Uncle Sam into fighting for you?
