Well that solves the overflight problem

So Ziggy can sleep soundly no US airspace to violate:

INTELLIGENCE chief Sir John Scarlett has been told that Saudi Arabia is ready to allow Israel to bomb Iran’s new nuclear site.

The head of MI6 discussed the issue in London with Mossad chief Meir Dagan and Saudi officials after British intelligence officers helped to uncover the plant, in the side of a mountain near the ancient city of Qom.

I guess the powerline folks were right:

After the painful spectacle of Obama’s U.N. address, however, no amount of wishful thinking can obscure Israel’s situation. Israel is in this alone. Not only can Obama not be expected to partner with Israel when it comes to dealing with Iran, he cannot be counted on to provide — indeed he is not capable of providing — sound counsel on the matter. And perhaps most importantly, Netanyahu has less to fear from ignoring Obama’s counsel then he would from a formidable, or even just competent, American president.

Thus, Netanyahu must feel less constrained from acting alone, even as he fully realizes that acting along represents the only option for acting.

Just a reminder of Principle #12

12. Israel should not be expected to risk another Shoah for the sake of the national interest of any other country.

You know it’s only when we have a Carter in office that Israel sees the need to ask alone. And we’ve got the closest thing to Carter that we ever are going to get.
