Israel and Iran Nukes



Text  



According to a re
port in The Scotsman,

Israel has put the U.S. on notice that it stands ready to destroy Iran’s nuclear program if there is indication that the program is developing weapons. Before all the usual suspects make the knee-jerk accusations that Israel is being provocative and bellicose, let’s reassert some key facts. 1) Iran is an outlaw regime that must not be permitted to develop nuclear weapons. 2) The West must live up to its responsibilities in ensuring that this does not happen. 3) If the West collectively does not act, we must hope that someone else will. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that–and remember that the whole world still owes Israel a debt of gratitude for taking out the Iraqi nuke plant in 1981.
