I was privileged to have an Israeli Brigade Commander as a fellow classmate in 1977.

If he was representative of Israeli determination and the nature of that determination still exists today, I cannot fault your conclusion.

"Avoiding speaking the truth does not mean you can then avoid facing the consequences of those facts," he said.

Israel knows it is the prime target of Iran and Ahmedinejad. I would rather the U.S. take action, but I am beginning to have my doubts as to our political will (at least based on what the administration is saying).

On the other hand, Iraq might have been a first step toward moving against Iran. With a regime change in Iran, Iraq would have a much better chance of success and Israel would be able to breathe for a while. But with the Revolutionary guard firmly in the grasp of Ahmedinejad, I don't see an internal rebellion succeeding without external military action.
