Benjamin Netanyahu & Amanda Waller, the common thread
I don't know how many of you out there saw the press release that Israel's prime minister and Barack Obama gave yesterday. Or for that matter are familiar enough with the Israeli Arab conflict to understand the context of what was said. But if you did see it with a certain degree of understanding then you know that Netanyahu is basically a male version of Amanda Waller. Politically savvy, extremely intelligent, very direct and even shrewd when he needs to be. Qualities we don't see in our own president as consistently as many Americans would like to. This was extremely obvious when contrasting the portion of Obama's out look on the the realities on the ground in comparison to Netanyahu's. Although never the director of the Task Force X, Netanyahu is a former Israeli defense force commando who along with the Navy Seals are the most bad ass soldiers in the world. Rather with an uzi or a microphone, this man knows how to fight for his country's right to exist and defend it's self with out letting political correctness get in the way of reality.
