Netanyahu delivers epic smackdown to Obama, Kerry

This is what we get for having weak national leaders with no spine.

Benjamin Netanyahu understands the realities of the threats that face Israel on a daily basis, and that's one of the reasons he has had such a long and successful political career there. Even when his Likud Party has been out of power, Netanyahu has remained as a respected leader and national figure, and he always ends up returning the role of prime minister because - when the always-under-seige nation's security is at stake - Israelis know who they can count on to protect them.

So when Hamas starts launching rockets into Israel, Netanyahu is not going to have much patience with American poseurs who only question his reading of the situation - all so they can push a truce that anyone could have seen would be unworkable. And this week, Netanyahu made it clear that he doesn't want to hear that nonsense from Barack Obama and John Kerry again:

Following the quick collapse of the cease-fire in Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the White House not to force a truce with Palestinian militants on Israel.

Sources familiar with conversations between Netanyahu and senior U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, say the Israeli leader advised the Obama administration "not to ever second guess me again" on the matter. The officials also said Netanyahu said he should be "trusted" on the issue and about the unwillingness of Hamas to enter into and follow through on cease-fire talks.
