Slow Joe Says "NO!"

Rick Pedraza writes that Slow Joe Biden thinks Dick Cheney is "dead wrong" about America being less safe under Lord Obama. Joe also tells our ally Israel that they better not strike Iran's nuclear bomb making facilities.

I guess that's how we're safer under Lordy O: appease the Mad Mullahs of Tehran and slap Israel.

Clear as mud, Slow Joe.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden issued a high-level warning to the Israeli government, saying it would be "ill-advised" to carry out a military strike against Iranian nuclear sites.
Biden, speaking in an interview Tuesday with CNN, says the level of his concern is no different than it was a year ago. Despite reports that Israel may be gearing up for a unilateral strike, Biden stressed an attack on Iran was unlikely.
"I don't believe Prime Minister [Binyamin] Netanyahu would do that,” Biden told CNN. “I think he would be ill-advised to do that."
But many U.S. officials believe Israel is serious, noting that Netanyahu said several times during his election campaign that he would not tolerate a nuclear-armed Iran.
"I promise that if I am elected, Iran will not acquire nuclear arms," Netanyahu told the Los Angeles Times prior to his election. “And this implies everything necessary to carry this out."

Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, head of U.S. forces in the Middle East, told senators last month the Israeli government may be "so threatened by the prospect of an Iranian nuclear weapon that it would take preemptive military action to derail or delay it.”
In an interview last week with The Atlantic, Netanyahu said “Western civilization” will have failed if Iran is allowed to develop nuclear weapons.
"You don't want a messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs,” Netanyahu said, underscoring the concern he has for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and Iran.
Biden, who became the highest-ranking official to caution Israel against a striking Iran, also says criticism over the administration’s handling of foreign policy from former vice president Dick Cheney is “dead wrong."

Slow Joe Biden is a hoot when he's doing his usual outrageous braggart show. But when he's telling Israel what to do vis-a-vis Iran, presumably as an Obama surrogate, he's dangerous.
Very dangerous.
