The London Times Sunday edition reported yesterday that the Israeli government would notify Washington D.C. regarding an imminent airstrike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, 12 hours in advance.  The paper reports that the message was delivered to U.S. Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey during his visit to Israel late last week.

Israeli President Shimon Peres said to Gen. Dempsey: “I am sure that in this fight [against Iran] we will emerge victorious. It is a fight that does not belong exclusively to the United States or Israel, but a global struggle to create a safe world for all peoples.”

According to the report, Prime Minister Netanyahu believes that President Obama would attempt to dissuade and even prevent an Israeli strike once learning about the news.

The paper cited a spike in oil prices and the ripple effects that they would have on the global economy as the President heads into November’s elections.  This basic premise has been written about by numerous outlets over the past few weeks.

    The country that attacks first has no right to support if the other country, in it’s own defence, strikes back. If Israel has that kind of support from the US then it is effectively in charge of the US military and by extension in charge of the US presidency. In such a scenario the US public would quickly demand that Israel is cut loose to paddle it’s own canoe and to clean up it’s own mess.

    Israel has no obligation to inform the USA of its actions in defense of itself. If this report is true, Israel clearly sees itself, to a large extent, as a vassal of the US – a view that is dangerous in itself. Such action could also place the military in greater danger as the probability of Iran finding out about the strike would increase. Finally, if Obama were to demand that Israel not act Israel could stand down in deference to him thereby harming its security.
