It would be unforgivable for Israel to strike Iran at this time. The United States is doing a carrots and sticks approach and Israel needs to respect our efforts.
Israel's existance is threatened by a nuclear Iran. And so is ours.
What we're doing now with Iran is the same tactics we tried in North Korea.. Not very successful I'd say.
For the record, I'm not saying that Israel should attack Iran...
...but Israel has to look out for Israel. They live with the threat (and the deadly attacks) on a daily basis. If they feel the need to protect themselves by attacking Iran, that's their business.
Our Carrot and Stick approach left us with a North Korean mess. We shouldn't make the same mistake with Iran.
I suspect that Israel's decision will be based on whether they think the mullahs-with-nukes scenario is imminent, and that diplomatic concerns are a considerably lower priority.
What a bunch of hooey. Israel has every right to strike Iran unilaterally if and when they determine Iran is about to reach the point of no return.
If Iran was our neighbor I think it's likely we would have launched a strike already.
Israel has ruled out asking forgiveness. Did they ask forgiveness for destroying the Iraqi nuclear plant? The carrot and stick approach is eating up time the world does not have. Action by the UN security council will be obstructed as in the past. The mullahs have started a countdown to destiny. The whole world will breathe a sigh of relief when Israel does what they will not.
Yeah, well, if Israel decides that Iran's nuke capacity constitutes a clear and present danger they will strike without asking for your forgiveness.
