    There is an irony in this story. It was Bibi Netanyahu who met with Obama almost a year ago and returned to Israel to loudly brag about how he had both cowed and skunked Obama. Netanyahu was proud to boast that the had destroyed Obama. But he was not happy to leave it at that. He spent the next 10 months humiliating Obama and the USA at every opportunity. Now 6 powers are to decide upon sanctions. At the forefront is Baawak Obama, the man Netanyahu made a fool of. The rest are nations which do not want to be seen as fools, and do not wish to side with a fool. Perhaps there are enough votes on the side of sanctions to prevail. Or perhaps the castrate Obama will sing and the world will tune in another station. Israel has succeeded in it's goal of destroying both Obama and any chance of peace. Will Netanyahu settle for less that total war with Iran? Has Netanyahu considered how Israel will manage to conquer and occupy Iran? I don't think he is that bright.
