On Fridays Special Report on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer doubled down on an assertion he made last week about the inevitability of an Israeli strike on Iran to limit the Islamic republics nuclear capabilities.
Krauthammer referred to a Washington Post column in which David Ignatius indicated, generally, when Defense Secretary Leon Panetta thought such an attack might happen.
Our own secretary of Defense has said its highly likely and he gave a timeframe April, May, June which means the Israelis think that the moment, the zone of immunity where they can no longer attack successfully, is approaching, Krauthammer said.
I think he is right. I think the Israelis are serious unless happens between now and midyear or even November that will threaten the regime, because it wont change the policy. I think Israel will strike because it cannot live under the threat of annihilation from Iran.
Krauthammer also had some strong words about why he thought an attack was likely.
Unless something intervenes, Krauthammer replied. I cannot imagine the Israelis are going to allow Iran to go nuclear and to hold the Damocles sword over 6 million Jews all over again. Israel was established to prevent a second Holocaust, not to invite one.
And....Charles is so distraught...his RINO appeasing PC world may come to an end....
Israel has to be Obama sensitive or he will sic his brethren on them AND THEN employ American forces.
Israel just needs to do its business for the majority of Americans benefit and the benefit of western man in Europe.
November? Hmmm.... timely?
That's the rock on which the “O” re-election campaign will shipwreck...if his general and increasingly dangerous malfeasance does not accomplish it sooner!
