Dogs of War: The end game

White House National Security advisor Tom Donilon's  three days of high-level talks in Israel ended on Sunday after he failed to extract a pledge from  the Israelis not to attack Iran's nuclear facilities. According to Debkafile,  Obama has invited Netanyahu  to meet him at the White House on March 5  hoping that personal contact might do the trick.  Personally I think this is pure political theater so Obama will  appear to have done all he could to avert war before Israel attacks. Israel faces an existential threat and will do what it must to survive: To me  that means attacking Iran early in March. By then Obama  will appear to have done all he reasonably could   to  avoid war, and can aid Israel militarily at the least political cost to himself.
