Gingrich presidency = War with Iran

As if Newt Gingrich by himself weren’t bad enough. Robert Reich writes of Sheldon Adelson, the single donor who is keeping Newt in the race, and who will become the de facto leader of the free world should Gingrich somehow become president.
from the comments:

The Adelson’s are Right Wing Single Issue Kooks.

Their issue is Israel. They are among those that believe Israel has rights and privileges that trump all other nations. That thee Israeli government is by definition of being the Israeli government beyond reproach and is justified in any action to eliminate any threat, real or imagined from the Palestinians. Note that the money started flowing shortly after Newts’ statement that the Palestinians are a fictional nationality?

War against Iran is the minimum payback this guy and his pal Netenyahu (true) want from a President Gingrich.

You thought it was bad that Cheney & Bush started a war to assist American Oil Companies? How about starting a war to sate the blood lust of a paranoid foreign leader?

I am a Jew and a supporter of Israel. Just as I am an American. In both cases I refuse to go along with the concept of blind allegiance, it is the road to Hell.

My country right or wrong brought the Hell of Viet Nam in the US. Israel right or wrong can only lead to its own destruction.

Not to mention the consequences for the US, I’d be pretty sure this would spell the end of Israel, unless the US is prepared to place troops there permanently.

Welcome to the pseudo-bastion of democracy, now that the Supreme Court has handed the reins to the richest Americans and their corporations and Super PACS, via the Citizens United decision.

    Remember what was happening just a few years ago with Gaza? The threat to Israel is real. Their neighbors do hate them and I believe will not hesitate to attack them if the United States does not back up Israel. I understand that it is a horrible option to have a war with Iran, but it does not look like they are willing to end their nuclear arms program peacefully. If they are able to acquire nuclear missiles then a war with them will be even more devastating to everyone, because do you really expect them to sit there on their bombs and do nothing? I do not think so, not when they have the military capability to rival Israel’s, and how do you think that is going to end? With Israel quietly surrendering to a dozen countries with revenge on their minds? No way, that is what the bombs are for. So would you rather have some genocide in Israel with a possible nuclear holocaust? Or another war in the middle east with the U.S. involved? You could let Israel attack them alone, but how many countries do you think would be more than happy to help their wonderful neighbor Iran in destroying their most hated worst enemy?
    So what is a better option? Peaceful negotiation? You have seen how well that has worked thus far. Iran is in no mood for letting the rich western countries hog all the nuclear weapons for themselves? No way! They want to be able to pressure the Israelis. But seriously. Look at how they have reacted to the boycott, by threatening to escalate. So how do you think this will end? A war sooner than later will come of this, but sooner may just be the better option.
    Who knows. Iran might have a change of heart and drop the whole thing, but this is cutting it really close. And hey, if America can go to war just on the suspicion of weapons of mass destruction, then why not against someone they know has them?
    I know this has nothing to do with rich people controlling the government, but it seems important anyway. By the way I am not a wild Ginrich supporter, I prefer Romney right now.
