Israelis urge U.S. to stop Iran's nuke goals
The Washington Times ^ | 9/30/2005 | David R. Sands

The United States and its allies must act to stop Iran's nuclear programs -- by force if necessary -- because conventional diplomacy will not work, three senior Israeli lawmakers from across the political spectrum warned yesterday. As a last resort, they said, Israel itself would act unilaterally to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear arms. Iran will not be deterred "by anything short of a threat of force," said Arieh Eldad, a member of Israel's right-wing National Union Party, part of a delegation of Knesset members visiting Washington this week. "They won't be stopped unless they are convinced their programs will be destroyed if they continue," he said. Yuval Steinitz, chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said the best hope was for the United States and other major powers to make it clear to Iranian leaders now there was "no chance they will ever see the fruits of a nuclear program." "Threats of sanctions and isolation alone will not do it," said Mr. Steinitz. Yosef Lapid, head of the centrist opposition Shinui Party in the Knesset, added that Israel "will not live under the threat of an Iranian nuclear bomb."

Just adds to the beauty of the situation and solution. The solution (end game) will be too much for anyone to handle on a rational basis.

I know in my bones you are correct. Like modern art, I know what is really great...but I can't say why. What is coming is a beautiful thing...but I think we (at least, I) will just sit and admire its awesomeness.

Looking quickly the flag the Muslim terrorists were burning did indeed look rather similar to that of Iceland's.

I agree that they will. They will be attacked by Iran, they will retaliate and retaliate hard, and the followers of Islam will regret the day they started something they could not finish.

And the whole world will be safer after that because the anti-war pukes in this world will finally realize you can't trust the word of terrorists.
