In an act of disloyalty to the United States/breathtaking stupidity, Texas Taliban Senator Ted 'The Maple Leaf Muttonhead' Cruz has urged a US ally (Israel) to attack a country that the United States is in the midst of negotiations with (Iran).

According to Middle East Monitor:

Tea Party Republican Senator Ted Cruz said he believes Israel could attack Iran's nuclear facilities in a few months if the country's nuclear programme is not halted, Israeli newspaper Haaretz said yesterday.

Speaking to the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, an American based Jewish think tank, on Tuesday, Cruz said: "In my view, [Iranian Supreme Leader Ali] Khamenei believes there is no credible deterrence from the United States, there's not realistic risk of significant consequence for moving forward with their nuclear development"

He continued: "I think if it comes down to it, I have real confidence that the nation of Israel will act to preserve her national security, even if this administration will not act first and that could happen sooner rather than later — that could happen in a matter of months."

During his meeting with the Israeli think tank he attacked the American President Barack Obama, saying he believes Netanyahu is working harder to defend American interests.

Setting aside the truly distasteful sight of a United States Senator exhibiting such a degree of craven disloyalty to his own (adopted) country, the sheer cretinous stupidity on display is impressive.

What Havana Ted is too dim to grasp and his Israeli 'friends' are too polite to point out is that an attack on Iran, at a time when Iran and its Shia allies in Iraq and Syria are facing such existential problems, would be the worst possible move for Israel and for the United States. If there is one thing that would unite the various warring factions in Arab Middle East, it would be an Israeli attack on a Muslim country.

And this slippery, rat-faced shitmuffin is seriously being spoken of as the GOP candidate for The White House in 2016.

Bring. It. On. This asshole makes Basilmarceauxdotcom look like James Madison.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
