Obama will not attack Iran even if he knows they are installing a nuke on an ICBM. He is afraid it will cost him the election, which he will pay any price to win. SOLUTION: Netanyahu should declare his own Red line and act on it if required. Then Obama would be forced to show his colors which would also cost him the election. This would move Obama off of what he is hung on and might let him borrow some courage from Netanyahu and claim it was Netanyahu's decision, not his and blame the war on Netanyau. The US will have to attack Iran to defend itself if Israel attacks first. Obama will throw Israel under the bus without hesitation if he believes it will let him win four more years, which would be nearly as big a disaster for America as Israel.
