Obama opposes Israeli ground invasion

The Obama regime initially supported Israel’s strikes against Hamas. But now the phoney man-god has changed his tune. After the Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt Morsi and the Turkish Islamist PM Erdogan started to complain and push for a cease fire, Obama now opposes an Israeli ground offensive into Gaza.

President Barack Obama insisted on Sunday that Israel had a right to defend itself but said it would be “preferable” to avoid an Israeli ground offensive in Gaza.

He said persuading Israel not to attack would depend on the success of efforts by Middle East leaders to bring a halt to Hamas rocket fire into Israel.

[....]

Asked whether he believed an Israeli ground invasion would be an escalation of the conflict and if he would support such a move anyway, Obama said he had been in regular contact with Egyptian and Turkish leaders to secure their help in stopping Hamas’s rocket barrages, which he called the “precipitating event” in the conflict.

“My message to all of them was Israel has every right to expect that it does not have missiles fired into its territory,” Obama said in his first public comments on the Gaza crisis.

“If this can be accomplished without a ramping up of military activity in Gaza, that is preferable, that’s not just preferable for the people of Gaza, it’s also preferable for Israelis because if Israeli troops are in Gaza they’re much more at risk of incurring fatalities or being wounded,” he said.

“We’re going to have to see what kind of progress we can make in the next 24, 36, 48 hours,” Obama added.

Obama’s sympathies are with Muslim Brotherhood. he is OK with Israel defending itself up to a point, but if they decide to go for the kill, he will reveal his true colors.

    bad idea for ground invasion

    for one, another soldier could be captured
    second, and more importantly: Iran is behind this and they simply want to have Israel tied up so they cannot attack their nuke sites and along that line, also this would cause Israel to use plenty of munitions that will take weeks/months to replenish, thereby stalling an attack even longer. Plus, you know fucking well 0bama won’t sell them minutions now that he has more flexibility. So they are rightly screwed. So what do “I” think they should do ? flattening the hamas HQ is a good idea, not many bombs, sends a nice message. just level a significant building every day is all. and if a rocket is launched from Gaza, level the block it came from. but save up for Iran. but Iran is just going to have Hezbollah, Hamas, MuzzBros in Egypt, and AlQeda in Syria and Iraq just attack in a joint effort eventually. soon as they think Israel is down to a very few bombs.

    The CNN lying pieces of shit are at it again. Yet the sheeple lap it up with their cornflakes.

    The US and the rest of us are in deep shit gentlemen. The axiom of the fascist left is STILL about ends and means. Tell any lie. Besmirch any reputation. Kill anyone who opposes. BUT get the One World fascistic socialist job done!

    How come there isn’t a riot outside CNN HQ today baying for the heads of these manipulators and liars.

    You can’t win a war if you worry about one soldier getting captured. Already lost. Solider is captured you assault til free or withdraw and lick wounds.

    Give Gaza to Egypt. There is no reason to fight over it or have rocket launchers there. Israel should just make the offer. The peace then is with the Egyptians and not with proxy terrorists.

    I don’t see how a broader war is in anyone’s best interest. Cairo, Teheran, Damascus, and Mecca will all end up as glass in the desert.

    ISrael’s enemies are still trying to isolate it through this low intensity asymmetric warfare and propaganda. Israel needs to bring their story to the American school system and the Russian and Chinese school systems.

    @ darkwords:

    The Israelis have something like 15,000 terrorists in their prisons. If a soldier is captured, start executing a prisoner an hour until he is released. If Hamas executes the soldier, execute all of their prisoners. Then round up some more prisoners.

    The International news services are virulently anti-Semitic. The world is brainwashed and facts have no power. Witness the recent election and the tactics of lying/smearing/bigotry.

    The Israeli and international leftists caused Gaza to be Jew-free. Crickets.

    @ 6 Iron Fist: In one aspect that is correct. The western media and diplomacy has provided so much morale to Hamas that their culture begins to reflect that they are indeed right in their notions of genocide.

    How does one erase that poor Obama supported logic? Death and defeat. Gaza has to be turned to ashes then and the world horror has to be withstood.

    You could probably cure it with Christian faith but you would have to send 10,000,000 missionaries to Gaza and let 9,999,999 of them be cruelly and mercilessly slaughtered by righteous western MSM supported imans. Once the soil becomes red enough a few leaders will step up and end it.

    The final solution is that either Islam evolves or it dies. Islam is he problem.

    ahhh, a refreshing idea. I support this message.

    As far as I know, Gaza still technically belongs to Egypt anyway, so Israel doesn’t need to “offer” them anything.

    They should just unilaterally declare that they’re returning sovereignty to Egypt, and that any further attacks from Gaza will be considered an act of war by Egypt.

    @ 11 lobo91: Good point. Israel should just step into Gaza and level all the barriers stopping Gaza from flowing into Egypt. Then withdraw and send your note to them.

    I always like the people who claim that the “Palestinians” are “trapped” in Gaza. They can leave anytime they want. They just can’t go to Israel.

    Funny how nobody ever mentions the big wall the Egyptians put up to keep them out of their country.

    Get ten thousand Arkansas razorback hogs. Stampede them from the north end of Gaza to the southern end.

    Drive ‘em all back into Egypt, build a new border wall, tell ‘em goodbye, stop sending ‘em subsidies, and that’s that.

    It cannot evolve, by its own definition.

    It must die.

    Iran is enemies with The MB, they have nothing to do with this. This is MB/Hamas/AQ vs. Israel.

    Yes, but that would be “genocide,” whereas the hog stampede would just be damn good television.

    It’s always okay when THEIR side does it.

    How many hundred millions have Muslims killed in the name of their “faith” over the centuries?
