President Obama has offered to increase U.S. military aid to Israel in the wake of the monumentally horrific nuclear deal made with Iran. According to the New York Times, Obama approached Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with the subject during a phone call on Tuesday. White House officials have said that Obama told Netanyahu that he was willing to have “intense discussions” on bolstering Israel’s defense capabilities.
The Times also reported that Netanyahu told Obama he didn’t wish to discuss the topic, leading officials in Washington to believe that the Israelis instead want to wait for the decision from Congress on the subject. Lawmakers have up to 60 days to discuss the agreement, but Obama has already threatened to veto any bill that defies His Royal Highness’ will.
Lawmakers could attempt to derail the agreement by passing new sanctions or preventing the White House from lifting existing sanctions – the biggest incentive for Iran – but King Obama has said he will use his veto power, meaning that Congress would have to muster a two-thirds majority to override.
Netanyahu, the staunchest critic of the agreement, called it a “bad mistake of historic proportions” moments after the passing, and he continued his criticism on Wednesday saying there were “absurd things” in the agreement, and accusing the world leaders of falling into “a trap of smiles set by the tyrannical Iranian regime.” He also said in remarks to Israel’s parliament that he was not bound by any terms and could still take military action against Iran.

He defends himself and his true friends, and he looks out for the interests of his own family first. He isn’t afraid to call the bullies out, and that is exactly what a nation who has threated to obliterate Israel is: a big bully. And now Obama wants them to get a nuke – the country who regularly screams, “Death to America!” on their streets.
“We will reserve our right to defend ourselves against all of our enemies,” said Netanyahu to Parliament.
Today is the DAY! You know… that day that the Obama Administration said we’d have Smokin’ HOT nuclear deal with Iran! According to Obama and John Kerry, the…
