Obama, Israel, and Iran
Why does the Obama Administration earn the ire of Israel? Because the Administration won’t give Israel any red-line guidance regarding Iran. While Israel is not unarmed, at a national level, they are almost certainly alone and afraid.
Why won’t the Administration give Israel the red-lines they want?
Is it ideological (because Israel is the only free-market and democratic nation in the region)?
Or is it because fixing Iran falls into the too-hard category as it requires Chinese participation (going poorly for the Administration) and an actual Russian reset, that is, a real reset and shared values and not just a press conference.
When an Administration doesn’t know what to do they do what most individuals do: nothing.
