It's Being So Cheerful as Keeps Me So, Er, Miserable, Actually!

By Davidduff

Yes, yes, I know this blog is known as 'The Glums' but the fact is that there is precious little 'Good News' to go around.  Although, having said that, just recently there has been hardly any news at all which, if you are a 'glass half full' sort of a person, is Good News but if, like me, you are a 'glass half empty' type then this quiescence is ominous.  And even if I had any optimism I can always rely on the likes of that arch-conservative, John Bolton, formerly 'Dubya's diplomat at the UN, to squidge it out of existence - as he does over at WND Politics:

Israel does not have much time to make a “fateful decision” about whether to  strike Iran’s nuclear sites, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton said Sunday in a  radio interview.

“Israel, I think, now faces the fateful decision whether it will allow Iran  to get nuclear weapons, thus constituting a true existential threat to Israel,”  he said.

“Or whether they will strike as the Israelis have done twice before against  nuclear programs in the hands of hostile states,” Bolton told WABC  Radio’s Aaron Klein.

I do remember a few months ago Mr. Netanyahu warning Obama, as he began his delicate courtship of the Iranian government, that Israel would definitely never allow the Iranians to build a bomb.  He has been quiet ever since.  And I also remember warning you all that when the Israelis do strike it will come out of the blue with absolutely no warning.  There are only two sets of people who know just how close (or far) the Iranians are from getting their bomb, that is, the Iranian government and the Israeli government.  My guess is that Obama hasn't a clue and that his intelligence agencies are so busy reading Mrs. Merkel's mail that they can't give him one!

Please note, this is not a forecast - I'm jest sayin'!
