February is Black History month. The New York Giants beat the New England Patriots in the Super bowl AND the United States is waiting to see what Israel will do to Iran’s nuclear facilities. President Obama, “promises” to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, while Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has warned that Israel could attack Iran as early as April!!! But President Obama is dismissing any worries that Iran might retaliate against the United States after an Israeli attack. Really?!?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is due to visit Washington in March, while his foreign minister Avigdor Liberman arrives next Monday to meet with President Obama. On Sunday, yesterday, Israel replaced its air force chief and is beefing up its military while the escalating war of words continues between Iran and Israel. Netanyahu stated that the ONLY thing that ensures their existence, security and prosperity is their military strength. While in Tehran, military officials warns that Iran will retaliate against ANY country whose territory is used to help Israel to launch a military strike against Iran…meaning the United States!! Scary!
