Probably his preparations to attack Iran was 99.9% complete and suddenly this new turn of events made him look like a fool.
Only days following a phone call between President Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Obama met his Israeli counterpart Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House Monday morning. Obama's first visit to Israel last March was paved in smiles, a charismatic offering to demonstrate U.S. commitment to security in Israel. But Monday's visit in Washington was far from courtesy: the most pressing item on the schedule was undoubtedly Netanyahu's discontent with the new diplomatic advances between the United States and Iran.
The direct conversation between U.S. and Iran's leadership was the first between the two countries' leaders since diplomatic relations were cut off in 1979. The historic moment marked Iran's interest in re-engaging with the West. Not surprisingly, however, the moment was far from welcomed by Netanyahu, calling the latest developments a "smiley campaign" Iran was using to court the U.S. into a tempting relationship.

So Netanyahu position is that in order to have peace and security, let us not have any dialog of any king instead let all have posturing and threads. This probably says more about Netanyahu Israel position than anything else.

A wise man once said...The best way to Crush your enemies is to make them your friends. Iran and US relation improved quite bit during Clinton, where US wresting team went to Iran for a friendly match and Iran's soccer team came here and things were improving until Bush II happened...Then US foreign policy took a noise dive into the turd!

I don't know why but the more right wing and conservative US administration becomes the worst they are at running US foreign policy and governing all together!

Where is the shred of proof that Islamic radicals aren't cozying up to us, just to get in another terrorist attack? There is far more proof of that, than them actually agreeing to keep the peace. Just look at how they kept to peace treaties with Israel. These are barbaric people devoted to archaic ideals. They are not to be trusted.

Meanwhile, our true ally...Israel...is getting the middle finger from the Jerk-in-Chief. No wonder Netanyahu doesn't trust him. 0bama is too busy bending over tables for our enemies.

**** that dork. Talking does no harm and in fact opens doors. Which is what we are looking for. A door to get in there and do inspections. nentenyahoo is an idiot bent on leading with disdain and hate. he seems to think emulating his enemy is the way to not become his enemy. Moron.

What proof? Also how does having a discussion with Iran's President make us more vunerable to a terrorist attack?

Did establishing the "red phone" line to Moscow take us one step closer to nuclear war? Is that how it works?

There is actually none, but there are plenty of evidence that US helped overthrow an Democratic elected President of Iran and replace him with a brutal dictator, then 40 years later after another revolution, and during a bloody war US supported Iraq and not only directly helped sinking Iranian Fleet so that Iraq would get the upper hand in the war(despite no declaration of war with Iran) it also sold chemical weapon to Iraq which then Iraq used on Iranian people. Despite all of that Iran has never attached US, and yet You See Iran as the radicalist???


How myopic of you!

His meeting with Obama was futile and off he goes to the UN and pounds Iran all the way.

A lot of worrying about nothing. Obama just friended Hassan on FB. This significant and historic gesture we knew was coming, has happened and the world community is forever grateful to Obama's leadership and wisdom.
