"Barry, Do It Yourself!"

That's what Bibi should reply to this:

Obama warns Netanyahu: Don't surprise me with Iran strike
U.S. president disturbed by positions PM expressed vis-a-vis Tehran before his election

There's a limit to how much I can take from Barry Hussein Obama. He's a total newcomer to the world of international security, politics etc. And it shows.

Obama's visiting the Middle East in June so he's trying to cozy up to his Arab Muslim brothers.

Was Bibi caving in to Obama or basically telling him where to go? Israel has no obligation to reveal its military plans to the US; certainly not under this backstabbing president.

Bibi could just be keeping covert operations and strategies for Israel's eyes only not Obama and the entire world.

Or he could be just as much of a wishy-washy leader of Obama. I don't really know enough about him to judge what he's like as a leader.

I've seen him on US TV and he comes across as well-spoken and very pro-Israel but I thought the same about Ehud Barak when I saw him on US TV during Cast Lead.

Bibi's better than Barak, but that's not saying much. Even Olmert's better than Barak.

Attacks are only effective if they're surprise.

You're right. The last thing Israel needs to do is tip its hand to the enemy! That would be a dangerous disaster. I remember the media trying to George Bush Sr. to do that prior to the Gulf War in the early 1990s.

The media even lampooned themselves on Saturday Night live--asking the prez for the date and hour of the attack and which side they were going to attack from.

It's insane. I think Bibi is being cautious and probably is suspicious of Obama.

Israel has always done better without "friends."
