Presidential Hopeful Cain: “I would attack Iran to protect Israel”

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Monday he would attack Iran to prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons or to respond to aggression against Israel.

Asked if he agreed with former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton’s contention that the “only realistic alternative … is to use force preemptively against Iran’s nuclear weapons program” since diplomacy has failed, Mr. Cain said he did, with one caveat.

“There would be some other pieces of information I would need before I gave that order, but I’m saying that would be Option B,” Mr. Cain said during an interview with editors and reporters at The Washington Times.

“Option A is, ‘Folks, we are not going to allow you to attack Israel‘ … If they call my bluff, they already know — they will know — what Option B is.”

Mr. Cain said that, as commander-in-chief, he would “make it crystal clear [that] if you mess with Israel, you’re messing with the United States of America,” but stressed that his “Cain Doctrine” would not be a “blank check” for Israeli military action.

“There will be a set of conditions and circumstances that I will work with Israel on for them to understand that they cannot abuse that doctrine,” said Mr. Cain, a former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza.

However, if Israel is ever attacked first by Iran, he said he is “not going to sit back and get a vote from the United Nations as to what we ought to do.”

“If they [Iran] start lobbing rockets and stuff over at Israel, then we’re going to shoot back with Israel,” he said.

Mr. Cain dismissed the notion that an attack on Iran is unrealistic: “First of all, we have the most capable military power in the world,” he said. “Air, ground — although we won’t have to use ground for this — submarines, ships, that would be strategically placed in that part of the world.”

Mr. Cain has questioned President Obama’s commitment to the Jewish state, saying during his candidacy announcement that Mr. Obama had thrown “Israel under the bus” by calling for negotiations with the Palestinians to be based on Israel’s borders before the 1967 war.

“The problem we have today is that, I believe, that [Iran] would test this president’s intention to help protect Israel,” he said.

Mr. Cain was interviewed at The Times after he had met Monday morning with Israel’s ambassador to U.S., Michael Oren.

    It is sad that they (Zionist/dark entities) are able to find once- oppressed people to finally feel good enough about themselves to align with, represent, and support oppressors. Where they themselves become oppressors – Obama and now this guy. Shameful, for me, literally.

    Traitor with the capital T. Anyone defending Israel has blood on their hands. A prison is where you belong with the rest of your kind.

    There should be no doubt as to who owns America. We need a president that doesn’t promise to defend israel but wipe it off the map.

    I once accused House Negro Martin Luther King Jr to be a bloody Zionist, a Muslim and Arab hater. Millions of Blacks have been indoctrinated to hate Muslims and Arabs. Harman Cain proves to be a real Hybrid Son of the Devil!

    It is sad to see the US overrun by such VIPERS! Those Black Devils LOVE America so much that when Israel attacks America (Uss Liberty, 9/11, etc.) they would still befriend the Jews and the Israelis. You must love the Jews, they sing in Church!

    Always amazing to see that your rep’s,senators,”presidential hopefuls” and other “self-elected” leaders in the us are only talking about islam,’terrorism’ and israel….

    dont you people in the us have other issues???

    the population is growing dumber,fatter and watching all day mind-killing television and is not even capable to ask questions about your leaders and their loyalties.

    any self-reflection?

    what you have here is a Christian mental slave of the jews.
    his mind is in the hands of the jew.

    folks!! may I present to you… mr Brown Bush! Mission Accomplished!!

    Mr. Cain must be one of those Rabbi Yosef referred to as “donkeys” whose main purpose is to serve jews, according to the JP.

    Commentary for December 16, 2010 — A Senior Rabbi Speaks His Mind
    Recently in Jerusalem an elderly but important Sephardic rabbi spoke publicly about Jewish
    racial superiority and the inferiority of non-Jews. ” Gentiles exist only to serve Jews”:

    “The sole purpose of non-Jews is to serve Jews, according to Rabbi Ovadia Yosef,
    the head of Shas’s Council of Torah Sages and a senior Sephardi adjudicator.

    ‘Goyim [Gentiles] were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in
    the world — only to serve the People of Israel,’

    BAFS, Christians are slaves to the extent that couple 100 thousand armies are sent ,
    3-4 trillion dollars are spent, whole countries infrastructure is destroyed, millions killed,orphaned, widowed…
    all this horror onto the Muslim world, by Christian slaves, at the command of their Jew masters..
    many Muslim countries are experiencing this horror..

    BAFS, Christians are slaves…”

    I did not disagree, but this HERMAN CAIN, this name sounds to me like that of the slave master of old and I am still puzzled why most descendants of those slaves still keep the names of the slave masters of their poor ancestors!

    Most American Blacks will never be emancipated. Like Dr King, they all want to be like their White masters! A sad world indeed.

    “We have no reason to attack…”

    They have all the reasons to attacks like rabid dogs because they were, are and will always remain IMPERIALISTS and FASCISTS and some would argue it is because they got it in their very genetic fabric!

    We say that Judaism is inherently evil, well the Jews do seem to share that monopoly with the West!

    Ignorance, arrogance, and plain old evil shades itself in all shapes, sizes, and color. This truth hits home when you are not looking at the other guy but looking at your own representative.

    No matter, we must fight ignorance, arrogance, and plain old evil the best way we can, starting with self. If each of us continue to do that we may just have a chance to do some good to ourselves and others.

    Guess where his funding is coming from? I think the line has finally been crossed where declaring allegiance to Israel will work against idiots like this. Enough people seem to have woken up to who the real enemy is and always was.

    Is this guy running for an Israeli seat in the Knesst, or is he living in Israel, or does he think US citizens approves sending their kids to an alien land to die for a cause that has nothing to do with their affairs.
    A grovelling man does not deserve to have a life let alone becomes a president.
    It is crystal clear that this slave to Israel will not enter the white house
    He also make his idiotic comments on the records for him to review and spite on his own face for saying such a stupid statement.
    Any candidate who grovel to Israel is not worthy for presidency USA need a president who put USA 1st 2nd &3rd and will not give taxpayer money to anyone and will defend US borders not Israel borderless land.

  29. #29 by Gina Stevens on October 4, 2011 - 8:54 am

    THIS IDIOT IS PLAINLY SAYING I AM A TRAITOR TO AMERICANS AND MY ALLEGIANCE IS TO ISRAEL. HE IS ASKING A BUNCH OF JEWS IN USA TO VOTE FOR HIM AND TO HELL WHAT 95% OF THE MAIN VOTERS DO

    The racist remarks do not help our cause. Mr. Cain will not do as the next President because he is now and was in the past a champion of the Federal Reserve Bank. When TARP was being discussed, Cain wrote “Congress should just shut up!” And let this “collective action” work. Mr. Cain seems to think this is a collective and not a Republic.
    Thank you,
    Robert Walker
