#1 That really should be "Obama is worried..." I have no problem with Israel turning Iran into a parking lot or a land fill.

#2 More likely, Obama doesn't want to deal with anything that might impact the election adversely for him. A complete lack of leadership ability. Amateur hour.

#4 Rather than all this theater, what is Bambi going to do about Syria now that they admitted shooting down a Turkish F-4 Phantom? since Turkey is a NATO country, all NATO membera are obligated to come to their aid if that is how things develop. Might actually force Sh!tforbrains to make a decision.

ANKARA - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday Syria had admitted it had shot down a Turkish warplane in the Mediterranean and apologized, BBC Monitoring reported, citing Turkey's state news agency Anatolia.
The report could not immediately be confirmed. Turkey's military earlier announced it had lost contact with a fighter jet while it was over the sea off the southeastern coast. It did not give any further details.
