Israel Pushing Obama Toward War with Iran

"The Israeli lobby in the US is pushing President Barack Obama to go to war with Iran," says a political analyst.

James Morris talks with Press TV about Israel's positioning toward Iran.

(TEHRAN / LOS ANGELES) - “Israel lobby AIPAC [American Israel Public Affairs Committee] is pushing for confrontation with Iran,” James Morris told Press TV in an interview on Thursday.

Morris said it was worrying that Obama's National Security Advisor Tom Donilon has called on the Washington Institute for Near East Affairs to take stronger actions against Iran.

The analyst added that neo-conservatives in the US are also plotting against Syria since Damascus supports the Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah.

“What is happening in Syria with the protests...I think the neo-cons through the National Endowment for Democracy have been involved with this, perhaps in terms of rabble-rousing in Syria,“ Morris said.

“They want to create strife there [in Syria] and get President Barack Obama to intervene like he did in Libya,” he said.

Morris urged the Middle East countries to be vigilant against US and Israel's plots in the region.

“The only thing I can say is to be ready for more war...It is all part of a plan to get an eventual war for Israel against Iran and Syria and the region really has to be on guard about this... We just have to watch out for that.”

OK. I'm not being flippant or anti-Semitic here... but... really... tell me again why the USA and Israel are such close allies? And why should American G.I.'s fight and die in the Middle East? If I'm not mistaken, Israel is a Nuclear power... they have THE BOMB and the most sophisticated, anti-terrorist military in the world. Israel can more than take care of itself... are you old enough to remember the SIX DAY WAR when Israel annihilated the total armed forces of all it's neighboring enemies? They don't need us or want us to tell them how to run a country... so why do they need us to fight a war for them? I believe that Israel has the right to exist as a State just as any other country has the right to exist. They are major players on the World Stage and they can defend themselves very nicely, thank you. With Osama bin Laden and the goon from Iraq dead... why-the-hell are we still fighting in those hell-holes? To quote the present Speaker of The House... "We're broke." And in effect said that the Unites States of America cannot afford to look after it's elderly, impoverished, young, displaced, VETERANS, farms, industry, infrastructure but we can afford to send troops to all points of the Globe to fight and spend BILLIONS doing it! Does anyone else see the wrongness of this?
