Israeli PM says he is ready to call an attack on Iran

Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that he is ready to order a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

“I am, of course, ready to press the button if necessary,” Netanyahu said in the interview aired by Israel’s Channel Two television on Monday.

On Sunday, a new report revealed that a planned Israeli strike against Iran in 2010 was thwarted due to Tel Aviv’s qualms about its own military capabilities as well as top-echelon internal opposition against the measure.

On September 2, Netanyahu called on the international community to set a “clear red line” for Iran to halt its nuclear energy program.

The US and Israel have repeatedly threatened to take military action against Iran in order to force the Islamic Republic to halt its uranium enrichment program, which Washington and Tel Aviv claim includes a military component.

At the beginning of 2012, the United States and the European Union imposed new sanctions on Iran’s oil and financial sectors with the goal of preventing other countries from purchasing Iranian oil and conducting transactions with the Central Bank of Iran.
The illegal US-engineered sanctions were imposed based on the unfounded accusation that Iran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

Iran rejects the allegations, arguing that as a committed signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

In addition, the IAEA has conducted numerous inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence showing that Iran’s civilian nuclear program has been diverted to nuclear weapons production.

  1. It’s weird that those who are ready to press the button is said to love peace more than those who have no intention to even have the button at all.

  2. Well after the election, the American public will have no choice but to sign up for the next 10 years of conflict on your behalf.

    Great … but then you think US will do it? Well they have floating coffins plying the waters against an unsunkable missiels,aircraft etc carrier called Iranian land mass with a crew of 80 million.

    You think the few motley of floating coffins can last distance?

    It has been agreed no country have the capabilities to invade Iran , so iran will never lose unless you guys want to play dirty using nukes.

    Well go ahead .. and that we believe if Israel can last six months of conflict with Iran would be an achievement.

    They are waiting for you….
