The Timing For Israel is Critical - Yet the Israeli's Will Not Control It.

Reader comment on item: Panetta Predicts an Israeli Strike on Iran
in response to reader comment: An Israeli attack is doubtful

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Feb 6, 2012 at 13:16

There are too many inconsistencies in the current American Administration's stance in the Middle East, not the least of which is the complete lack of assurance towards Israel by the current Chief Executive that Israel would receive complete American backing.

But even before Israel could muster the means and opportunity to act, Iran will have triggered its next phase of the Islamic revolution, whether nuclear or not remaining to be seen. Israel will then have its potentially better opportunity to deal with the Iranian threat, in open theater tactical operations, as a legitimate response.

It must be remembered, Iran is not doing this alone-it only seems that way.
