Obama to Israel: If Iran nukes you, we'll nuke 'em right back

A news item at Haaretz suggests that Barack Obama has decided that a nuclear-armed Iran is a foregone conclusion, but not to worry...if Iran annihilates Israel, he'll annihilate Iran.
U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's administration will offer Israel a "nuclear umbrella" against the threat of a nuclear attack by Iran, a well-placed American source said earlier this week. The source, who is close to the new administration, said the U.S. will declare that an attack on Israel by Tehran would result in a devastating U.S. nuclear response against Iran.
Cold comfort, indeed.

Hmmmm... That's assuming Israel's retaliation doesn't get there first.
