Israelis assert the United States should not wait for Iran to decide on building a nuclear weapon before it considers military action. Dan Meridor, deputy Israeli prime minister, says: When is the point at which it should be stopped? Just when the bomb is assembled on the tip of the missile and is ready for launch? This demands clarification, to my mind, to make clear that even an Iran that is a decision away from nuclear weaponry, be it within days or weeks, is a nuclear-armed Iran. Iran could reach stage of nuclear development which would allow it to make a warhead quickly years in the future when the world's guard was down. Hermann Goering used to say the people don't want war, but they can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy.

It works the same in every country. http://venitism.blogspot.com Continue reading "Warrior Netanyahu and Worrier Obama"
