Iran has essentially crossed the red line set by Israel for its nuclear activity, and the coming few months will be a crucial period, Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, a former head of IDF Military Intelligence, said on Tuesday.
Speaking at a security conference in Tel Aviv, Yadlin said that for all intents and purposes, Iran has crossed Israels red line in the summer, Iran will be a month or two away from deciding about a bomb.
Unless there is a drastic increase in international pressure on the Islamic Republic, Yadlin said, Iran will continue to expand its nuclear program.
its now or never, said Hanegbi, but the option of never does not exist.

Consider other indicators that an Israeli first strike may be increasingly close at hand:
President Obama is doing nothing after the Assad regime in Syria crossed the Obama red line by using chemical weapons against the rebels, killing and wounding many. Are they concluding the White House is serious about dealing with Iran if and when Tehran crosses the red line? Hardly.
Netanyahu and his inner circle are watching how President Obama is doing nothing to stop North Korea from building and testing nuclear warheads and the ballistic missiles to deliver them. Are they concluding the White House is serious about preventing nuclear proliferation? Again, hardly.
Netanyahu are his inner circle are watching how President Obama has pulled U.S. military assets out of the Persian Gulf region, claiming budget cutbacks.
All this suggests the Netanyahu team believes it is all alone to deal with the Iran problem.
Now, let me be clear: I dont know if war will happen or not. I hope not. I pray not. But I want to be honest and keep you up-to-date on the latest developments.
Ah Red Lines ......
Maybe someone could consolidate the list of Red Lines that have been crossed under Obama’s (poor) leadership?
All of Obama’s lines are white.
Well, I suppose that we will have to draw another one...
Now they've done it! If they're not careful, Obama's going to issue a strongly worded statement!
I’d like to quote our former Secretary of State: “What difference does it make?” That just about sums up 0bama’s position on nuclear Iran.
Israel hasn’t the conventional means to take out the Iranian program. That means the Israelis will have to nuke the Iranians before the Iranians can nuke Israel. I have to presume Israeli planners know the American missile defense system was located in Turkey not only to intercept Iranian missiles but also to intercept Israeli missiles heading to Iran. Therefore, Israel will have to attack with something other than ballistic missiles.
That's what worries me, it can also shoot down Israeli planes. Would Obama give such an order? What makes us think that he wouldn't?
I think aircraft bearing tactical nukes can take missile defense countermeasures such as flying nap of the earth.
Once a ‘red line’ is set someone will figure out how to false flag it.
“All of Obamas lines are white.”
Ha... good one.
I sure hope you’re right! I know at the end Israel’s enemies won’t prevail, but getting to the end is not going to be pretty.
Obama did not lift a finger for the Iranian demonstrations. You judge a man by his actions, not his words.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Like Syria, it's a dotted line.
