PM to 'Post': Clear lines must be set to Iran nuclear march
Jerusalem Post ^ | 9/16/12 | Herb Keinon

Congressman Mike Rogers [R-Michigan] gave an interview recently and said he walked out of a meeting a few weeks ago between you and US Ambassador Dan Shapiro with a sense that you were at wit’s end over American policy toward Iran. Are you?

No, I am not at wit’s end. I believe we have to stop Iran, I believe we can stop Iran, and I think certain things are needed to do that. One of them is setting clear, designated limits to Iran’s nuclear weapons programs activities. I think that has not yet been done, but I am an old hand at this.

I started speaking about the Iranian threat 16 years ago. If I was not a lone voice then, I was one of the few, and then others joined. And then I started speaking about the need for economic sanctions against Iran. I wasn’t the only voice, but I was one of the few. Now I speak about red lines for Iran. So far I am one of the few; I hope others will join.

It takes time to persuade people of the wisdom of this policy.

I get the impression he really is at "wit's end" despite his answer here.

If Israel does decide to take out Iran’s nukes, at least all our diplomats and such have had time to clear out of the region, due to the embassy riots.
