Brent At $126 As Israel Security Cabinet Votes 8 To 6 To Attack Iran

Zero Hedge -- Looking at the tranquil sea that is the S&P one may be forgiven to ignore the rapid intraday surge in Brent which was up over $3 in a few hours, approaching $126 once again. But why?..

Maybe ..this. According to Israel's NRG, in a just completed cabinet vote, for the first time Netanyahu has gotten a majority (8 over 6) supporting an Iran attack. NRG also notes that at this point Israel has decided to not wait until the US elections in November before proceeding with sending crude to the stratosphere. From NRG (google translated): "Israeli political sources believe that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a majority Cabinet support Israeli military action against Iran without American approval..He announced that he wouldn't hesitate to perform the operation without the approval of President

To most military personnel this makes no sense at all! You don't broadcast that your going to attack your enemy; you lose what if any surprise and therefore increase your risk of failure.
Suspect this is bogus; an effort to affect commodity/stock markets.

I posted this late last night, but it is worth repeating.
I feel so sorry for the Israelis. They are under constant attack. On Netanyahu's previous visit to the White House he was blown off and told "I have to go have dinner with my family now." Talk about a slap in the face. Talk about no class. The president wouldn't dare treat somebody from Hollywood like that. He hasn't been in Israel's corner for a long time, and they know it. And how about the time in France when he thought the mike was off. He made a very classless remark about having to deal with Netanyahu every day. They're at the end of their rope and they may strike to avoid being annihilated. Now all of a sudden they're supposed to give the White House their strategy for attacking Iran? If you were them, would you?

Of course Israel has the right to defend itself. Everyone does. But who has attacked them, causing the need for self-defense? Sounds like Iran's the one who's going to need to be defending themselves....

Don't worry gurgle,
Obama will not start a war, he can't even finish one.

Israel will defend herself, because no one else will.
The rest of the world only seems to like dead Jews. Living Jews who defend themselves are denounced as "inappropriate".

I Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die Rag

Well, come on all of you, big strong men,
Uncle Sam needs your help again.
He's got himself in a terrible jam
Way down yonder in Iran
So put down your books and pick up a gun,
We're gonna have a whole lotta fun.

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Iran;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Come on Wall Street, don't be slow,
Why man, this is war au-go-go
There's plenty good money to be made
By supplying the Army with the tools of its trade,
But just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
They drop it on the Iranians‘.

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Iran.
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Well, come on generals, let's move fast;
Your big chance has come at last.
Now you can go out and get those reds
'Cause the only good commie is the one that's dead
And you know that peace can only be won
When we've blown 'em all to kingdom come.

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Iran;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Come on mothers throughout the land,
Pack your boys off to Iran.
Come on fathers, and don't hesitate
To send your sons off before it's too late.
And you can be the first ones in your block
To have your boy come home in a box.

And it's one, two, three
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Iran.
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

I guess their is nothing left to do but gas up the car and then go get drunk.
