Skip to comments.Iran six-seven months from nuclear bomb capability: Netanyahu
Posted on 09/16/2012 7:14:34 AM PDT by Innovative
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Sunday that Iran would be on the brink of nuclear weapons capability in six to seven months, adding new urgency to his demand that President Barack Obama set a clear "red line" for Tehran in what could deepen the worst U.S.-Israeli rift in decades.
Taking his case to the American public, Netanyahu said in U.S. television interviews that by mid-2013, Iran would be 90 percent of the way toward enough enriched uranium for a bomb. He urged the United States to spell out limits that Tehran must not cross or else face military action - something Obama has refused to do.

Obama needed to go raise funds and go on Letterman.
Iranian commander: Nothing will remain of Israel if it attacks
Of course Iran said in the recent past that nothing will remain of Israel. PERIOD. Whether or not it attacks Iran...
“Iran has in the past made reference to the destruction of Israel but his comments at a Tehran news conference were unusually strongly worded and detailed. “
If Romney is elected and it happens on his watch, the democRATS can blame him.
Another result of president obungler’s policies.
For one or another reason I’m sure Iran won’t get a bomb. Netanyahu is exhausting this hot air for domestic consumption. Alliance with America is vital for Israel’s population to feel secure but it is a bit broken right now thanks to Obama&Hitlery. Bibi is beating a drum to show he looks mean without US support. I think it is about his career.
UK Telegraph said they are going to meet, either this weekend on during the week.
Also, I am sick and tired and hearing about various timelines for Iran. It was 2 years for something like 10 years, now it is 6-7 months to be on the brink, whatever that means. I just hope Israel knows, as our intelligence has not been too good in that of part of the world.
So if he believes this, what’s the urgency about attacking Iran prior to elections? What does he lose by waiting to see if Romney will help out? Romney couldn’t possibly be worse than Obama (at least he presumably wouldn’t leak plans of such an attack even if he were unwiling to support it.
Light them up Bibi!
Continue to be the leader and savior of the western world!
This was my prediction given in an academic paper written for an predictive analysis intelligence course I took a few years back: “Accordingly, within the time frame of 2011-2015, whether following Israels policy of nuclear opacity, confirmed by an actual overt test, or via a public/international announcement, Iran will conceivably acquire nuclear weapons capability.”
Yeah, if I can figure it out, this idiot-ridden administration and its intelligence apparatus’ can figure it out. =.=
I think this is a moot point as Pakistan, Russia or China can slip them a warhead and then the whole place is afire.....world chaos...the dream of the Communists...
...and the Islamists...
That can’t be true. For the last two years we have been told that Iran is at least two years away from.....oh wait...
“Another result of president obunglerâs policies.”
Is it naivite or is it something else?
Obama Destabilized the Middle East on Purpose
I see bombing in Iran’s near future before the election is over.
“UK Telegraph said they are going to meet, either this weekend on during the week.’
AFTER Netanyahu publicized Obama’s refusal to meet and backed Obama into a corner. Initially and for a while Obama refused to meet with him.
N Korea is first in line to provide “assistance” to their friends in Iran. Pakistan is currently playing fast and loose with their military equipment.
A big boomer could end up in Iran any day, and not necessarily a home made device.
The World’s enemies know there will be a sea change in the international political order in 2 months and now is the time to strike for maximum effect and minimum blow back.
Pray for our allies in Israel,they will be fighting the fight we started.
Israel, a country born out of the holocaust of WWII, a little strip of worthless desert with a sea on one side, and enemies everywhere else.
Several times those enemies have tried to drive them back into that sea, failing that they’ve resorted terrorism almost daily.
Then come along the Iranian Nutjob and his repeated statements that they’re going to wipe Israel off the map...
But you’re saying Bibi’s response is all a bunch of hot air and only about his CAREER!
I fully admit all of these but all of the above has little to none in common with modern day. Bibi wasn’t the one who survived Holocaust, he hasn’t leaded the nation as it was brought up. Israel has changed a lot, just like United States did.
Netanyahu is the first Israeli prime minister born in Israel after the founding of the state. Netanyahu joined the Israeli Defense Forces during the 1967 Six-Day War, and became a team leader in the Sayeret Matkal special forces unit. He took part in many missions, including Operation Gift and Operation Isotope, during which he was shot in the shoulder. He fought on the front lines in the Yom Kippur War in 1973, taking part in special forces raids along the Suez Canal, and then leading a commando assault deep into Syrian territory. He achieved the rank of captain before being discharged. Netanyahu served as the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations from 1984 to 1988, member of the Likud Party, and was Prime Minister from June 1996 to July 1999.
Seems to me he grew up along with Israel and understands how it’s changed, as well as the threats against it.
