'count on America to ride to the rescue'

Thomas L Freedman (‘My President is busy…’ International Herald Tribune Monday 12th November) advises Israelis not to ‘count on America to ride to the rescue.’

Well, America may need to.

The British Sunday Times (Sunday 11th November) reported Netanyahu saying he was prepared to strike Iran without the support of America. The Israeli opposition had a poster showing a red mushroom cloud with the slogan ‘Bibi will endanger Israel’, and a former chief of staff said ‘the only way to finish off Iran’s nuclear Programme is by using the nuclear option. I hope Bibi is not mad enough to think about it.’
But he may be.
So, America, here is something for your busy President to think about. Might you not have to rescue Israel from its own leadership?
