Poised and Ready?

I'll say this, while the President continues to systematically dismantle the American economy, individual rights, and adherence to the Constitution, he has, at least decided it might be in America's best interest to give some semblance of support to Israel.

War games over, US-Israeli strikeforce in Persian Gulf, ready for real thing
Posted by Israel Insider

The armada of 10 US warships plus an Israeli and German battle vessel each, which transited the Suez Canal Friday, June 18, has reached the Persian Gulf, debkafile's military sources report. But first, from June 6 through June 10, the USS Harry S. Truman carrier (pictured) Strike Group was deployed 50 miles of the shore of southwestern Israel, secretly drilling the interception of incoming Iranian, Syrian and Hizballah missiles and rockets against US and Israeli targets in the Middle East.
For five days and night, the Truman's sixty F/A-18E/F Super Hornet fighter bombers took off on simulated bombing missions against targets set up by the Israeli Air Force at its firing range on the Nevatim Base-28, in the Negev desert southeast of Be'er Sheva - one of its three big air bases. The exercise was prompted by rising tensions from Syria's deployment of advanced Scud missiles for Hizballah on its border with Lebanon. it took place not far from the spot where Israeli commandos raided the Turkish Mavi Marmara on May 31.
It was decided at the White House to stage the Juniper Stallion exercise only eight months after Juniper Cobra 10, thebiggest joint war maneuver the US and Israel had ever conducted againstmissile attack, after receiving new intelligence that Iran, Syria andHizballah had almost doubled their operational armory of medium-rangemissiles. US defense secretary Robert Gateswarned a Senate panel on June 18 that Iran could fire "scores orhundreds" of short- and medium-range missiles against Europe - insalvoes rather than one or two at a time.
Four days later, Gates told a Fox interviewer: "I don't think we're prepared to even talk about containing a nuclear Iran. I think… our view still is we do not accept the idea of Iran having nuclearweapons." Asked whether a military strike was preferable, he said alloptions remain on the table although some time is left for working on the problem."
Those statements don't sound very convincing to me.
