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.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.
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.
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.
