Obama throws temper tantrum, cancels Austere Challenge 12 with Israel.

The Obama administration cancels the US-Israeli Austere Challenge 12 war-games that was scheduled to begin this Spring because of  disagreements with Israel.  Obama is said to be furious at Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon when Ya'alon rightly expressed Israels disappointment with Obama's efforts to prevent Iranian nuclearization.  Austere Challenge 12” was designed to improve defense systems and cooperation between the United States and Israeli forces and was to include 9,000 US troops.

This latest show of weakness by the Obama administration follows Obama blaming Israel for the recent assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist.  The impuissant American President has gone out of his way to place the blame for covert actions inside Iran squarely on the Israeli Mossad and has exposed Obama's animosity towards the Israeli leadership in the process.  President Barack Obama has sought to distance the US/Israeli historical relationship since his election in  2008 in an effort to appease Arabs.

In a feeble effort to rationalize the canceling of the Austere Challenge war-games, the Obama administration has stated it was canceled because of "budgetary constraints."  When has this President ever canceled anything because of budgetary constraints?  The United Kingdom and France has once again taken the lead role in confronting our common enemy, while Obama continues to "lead from behind."  The Persians see this gap in leadership and this gap will only embolden the Iranians to take offensive actions they might not consider if the world had a strong American President....a strong American President that backs Israel.
