Posted on 03/18/2011 6:50:09 AM PDT by Strategy
If Tehran continues with its nuclear program, other nations should threaten it with military action, Benjamin Netanyahu has said.
The sanctions imposed on Iran by the United Nations Security Council are not enough, the Israeli prime minister told CNN. He expressed concern that Iran may gain additional influence during the recent upheaval across the Middle East.
Iran should know that "if it fails to cooperate, there will be credible military actions," Netanyahu said. He believes it is the only thing that could stop Tehran's nuclear program.
According to the prime minister, such actions from the international community would knock out Iran's nuclear facilities. If the strike is unavoidable and the decision is adopted, it would not be that difficult and would be "preferably" led by Washington, he noted.

Do it yourself , damn somebody always wanting somebody else to do their job.
if so many nations are worried about being part of an assault, take all markings off the fighter jets and bombers, paint ‘em black (or with Iranian markings) and do the job.
MARCH 17: In this handout image provided by the Israeli Government Press Office, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel meets with Piers Morgan, recording for CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight at the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem. Netanyahu joined Piers Morgan for an exclusive interview where he answered questions on topics including the Palestinian conflict, Libya, Egypt and also on the situation in Japan.
Looks like he's explaining the route the arms shipment took. Meanwhile, Ozero is busy with another family vacation.
I watched that interview. He’s an impressive guy IMHO.
I can’t wait to see this leader meet with our de-facto President Palin!!!
Libya is a misdirection; the heat is on Israel.
But on the bright side, Sarah Palin will be visiting Israel and is scheduled to have discussions with Netanyahu. This should be interesting for both of them. I wonder what impression that very tough and astute man will form of his young ally, and what Sarah will learn. So glad they are having this opportunity.
EXACTLY. We can support you Isreal but were not your mommy.
What you see happening in Japan is exactly why we should have hit that damn reactor before the Russians installed the fuel rods.
By getting the fuel on site it became hands off by the outside world; now with people reminded how far reaching a reactor breach or coolant supply restriction can be this thing became the best “human shield” that site could ever hope to have.
Amen to that. I love it when he says someone else should do it. We give them 4 billion a year for what? Use it or lose it. Actually they should lose it before any American loses a dime of any services, is the way I see it. We need to take care of the USA first.
Excellent idea! Hope Bibi is firing up his jets now!
Pissed me off when I heard him say this. DO IT YOURSELF ISRAEL - we are not the worlds babysitter.
I am ALL for taking out Iran - but why do WE have to do it?
Israel is QUITE capable.
Yeeesh - we are not the worlds freakin babysitter.
We will gladly BACK YOU UP Israel.
Israel is QUITE capable.”
Actually, it’s on the bleeding edge of Israel’s abilities, due to the refusal of Obama to let Israel overfly Iraq and refusal to assit with re-fueling.
If Israel could take off from Iraq, this would be a cake-walk.
Benjamin must do what is best for his nation. Part of that job is recognizing that the US Resident is setting them up for the long awaited fall. The Resident’s words and actions cannot be trusted; therefore USA cannot be trusted at this time.
We the USA people have been taken over by a hostile government, in coordination with foreign and monied powers.
Bibi’s poll numbers must be falling again - hence the toothless posturing once more. The man is a great self-publicist, but a fraud as a leader. Every single major provaction or act of war has been met with either a half-hearted or no response at all. He just seems one more Israeli bent on national suicide.
