Tom Wilson, a neoconservative contributing writer to Commentary, explains how it is becoming increasingly apparent that Israel is taking over the role policing the Middle East from the US in the light of Obama’s growing isolationist stance. Wilson writes:
Amid the Obama administration’s increasingly apparent dereliction of duty to America’s role on the world stage, it seems that, in the Middle East at least, Israel is taking on an increased level of responsibility in the effort to halt the proliferation of both weapons of mass destruction and terror groups.
According to Wilson, it was Israel that saved the world from having to exist in a world where Syria and Iraq had nuclear weapons and now it is Israel that is preventing sophisticated weapons being transferred to Hezbollah in Lebanon from Syria – a job that Wilson reckons Israel would not have needed to do had the US done what it was supposed to do with regards to Syria.
It’s easy to see where this is all leading – especially with regard to Iran.
It’s just a matter of time. The present talks between the Iranians and the West have merely postponed the inevitable; not cancelled it.
