John Bolton
The former US ambassador to the UN says Israel may have to take military action 'to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weaponry'.

John Bolton said as the recent US intelligence report has dramatically reduced the likelihood of the use of force by the US in the coming year, pressure will be high on Israel to take action.

"If it [Tel Aviv] feels Iran is on the verge of acquiring that capability it brings the decision point home to use force," Bolton added.

The former diplomat said the balance of power in the region would dramatically change once Iran acquires nuclear capability, signaling a preemptive use of force before what he called developing an A-bomb by Iran.

Bolton said the pressure to act is intensive and the window of time available is narrow, claiming that if Iran builds the weapon Israel would be in danger.

"Maybe there will be another resolution but it will be even more toothless than the previous two sanction resolutions. International pressure through diplomacy of sanction has no chance of shifting Iran's policies over the next year," Bolton claimed.

Tehran says its nuclear program is solely aimed at producing electricity and the UN nuclear watchdog has confirmed its 'truthfulness' about its past activities.

Of course - as a tribute to all those sheep chasing dogs who were locked in a barn with a ewe and her lamb - the answer should be that if Israel is so keen to fight Iran then tell them to go ahead, but nobody else is coming to the party (except John Bolton, of course - give him a rifle and let him be the lead scout).  ;D

As opposed to the danger Israel poses not only to the Arab world but ours as well. Bolton=windbag propagandist (and worse).
