A Deceitful October Surprise?
Did Obama Maneuver Israel Into October Attack on Iran?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
In the past few days I have become deeply concerned that, once again, the American people are being "played."
It says "something" when an American citizen feels he cannot
trust his government to do the right thing when called upon, much less
do the right thing for the right reasons!
In the event you hadn't noticed, the US and, indeed, the world stands
at a critical juncture at this very moment. Climacteric decisions are
being made that will influence the affairs of men on this planet -- forever.
In the US, the most important election in the history of the United
States of America is almost at our doorstep. The outcome will determine
if the American republic remains free -- or -- voluntarily saddles itself with the yoke of socialism/Marxism and commits national suicide -- or -- throws off that yoke and remains a free country struggling to right itself from the damage done by the current socialist President, Barack Hussein Obama.
Christians across America are calling for the combined prayers of ALL Christians
petitioning God for "Divine Intervention" to rid America of the plague
of the collectivists, Marxists, socialist, and progressives who are de-constructing our republic right before our eyes. At http://www.jhm.org/Resources/FortyDaysOfPrayer you will find the site of one religious organization in America which says: "We're
calling for 40 Days of Prayer beginning Sept. 28 – Nov. 6 ending just
before the election. America is in a tremendous geo-political and
economic crisis. We are headed in the wrong direction. We must return to
the God of our fathers."
Evangelical Christians are stepping up their fervent petitions of
Providence to intervene to save America -- a country they believe was
founded as a Christian country but has badly strayed from it's
foundation and is now in jeopardy of total collapse into a godless
It is not just the religious people of America who are concerned. No.
One would be ill-advised to believe that. At least half the country
shares that belief -- to one degree or another.
And now it gets even more complicated by events in the Middle East.
Iran is nearing fulfillment of its dream of building a workable nuclear bomb some refer to as the "Islam (or ISLAMIC) Bomb." Their stated goal, once they have acquired the bomb, is to wipe Israel of the map and THEN -- come after the United States with nuclear weapons.
Many in America have concluded, based upon the favor President Obama has so obviously shown toward Islamic countries and the disfavor he has been equally obvious in demonstrating toward Israel, that Obama's
unspoken policy is to allow Iran to acquire a nuclear bomb and the
world will simply have to learn to live with a nuclear Iran.
That policy, if true, is laden will all sorts of
undesirable and negative consequences not the least of which is an
Iranian genocidal war with Israel, a nuclear attack against the US
homeland, AND nuclear armed terrorists roaming the globe setting off nuclear bombs in infidel cities.
Throughout the Obama first term the administration has been frantically constraining Israel from attacking the nuclear facilities of Iran and, at the very least, slowing down Iran's quest for the Islam Bomb.
An armada of allied ships sits just off-shore of Iran even as we write
today. Ground troops are staged in an iron semi-circle -- all facing Iran. And yet, Obama, so far, will not give the "OK" for the IAF to launch the air assault on those nuclear facilities in Iran.
Could it be because Obama has been buying time, deliberately
pushing back any attack by Israel until the month of October of 2012?
Obama and his minions know that Americans historically do not like
changing Commanders-in-Chief in the middle of a war. IF a war were to,
in fact, break out, oh, say -- in October, well, mighten that not give a boost to Obama's chances of winning the November election?
By nearly all estimates it is going to be one of the closest elections
in history and practically anything could make the difference between
victory or defeat by either party.
On the other hand, there are those pundits who claim that the American
electorate is so fed-up with Obama that they will vote him out of office
-- no matter what!
Me? Well, I'm not so sure.
The whole thing smells to high heaven. I am awfully afraid that BOTH the American people AND the people of Israel are being played, USED, if you will, by the Obama Administration to insure victory for Obama in November.
So here the American people are, less than eighty days before the election, with a world-class conundrum. Assist
Israel in its attack on Iran, and give aid and comfort to the Obama
election effort -- or -- withhold US assistance and allow the Israeli
citizens/civilians to take a missile shellacking from Iran's proxies,
which surround the tiny nation.
Making it even worse is the suspicion that Obama has deliberately
maneuvered both Israel AND the American electorate into this corner -- just to win an election.
Yes, I DO understand how it might be a stretch for some readers to accept that anyone, or any group of people, could be so cold-bloodedly conniving.
But the history of the Obama Administration, so far, has created an
atmosphere of distrust and suspicion in the American people. We have
grown to suspect everything and expect anything!
I can't speak for anyone but myself, of course, but I can hardly wait
for the polls to open on November 6th -- and I am hearing that more and
more every day as disgust with the Obama Administration grows -- exponentially -- by the hour.
The people always suffer as a result of the sins of their leaders. Just
as King Saul, the first king of the new Kingdom of Israel, doomed his
reign, almost from the moment it began, AND brought suffering to the
people of Israel, the people of America have been suffering for
nearly four years because of the Saul-like arrogance of our President
and "would-be king."
The good news is -- we can restore our country to its former glory. As Congressman Paul Ryan is wont to say: "We can DO this!" And he is right!
Like ancient Israel, America is "different." Having a king like every other country (as Israel learned the hard way) is devastating to the our republic. It has very nearly torn our nation's heart out.
The word "repent" actually means to "turn around and go the other way." For America, "repentance" will come November 6th and "restoration" will begin at midday on January 20th, 2013.
