    How long has America been in Afghanistan? Ten years? How many have died? How much money has been trown at this war? In spite of America's best efforts, they are far from victory and, in fact, are openly considering cooperation with the Taliban. There is a very long way between making a bunch of irresponsible statements as Panetta has done and achieving victory. America is raising taxes and cutting benefits in order to use their armed forces to defend Israel's settlement expansion. Obama knows this very well and this is why his handlers have surrogates addressing the issue. Generally speaking Americans may oppose an iranian bomb, but are they will ing to pay the cost of attempting to derail that program? Panetta and the other surrogates never talk about cost. Israel would actually profit from a war between America and iran because America woulf throw a lot of extra money at Israel during such a war and yet Israel would not openly participate in the actual war. Israelis must certainly drool over the idea of America attacking Iran and paying Israel to do nothing.
