Reader comment on item: Panetta Predicts an Israeli Strike on Iran
in response to reader comment: Likely that Israel will attack, but unfortunate for the world.

You are right, Jon. It is sadly true that historically, Israel is forced into action due to inaction of the western countries. If there was some alliance between the EU countries, the US and Israel to act in concert and defend themselves together, we might not be in this situation. I guess we will have to wait for a missile to hit the Eiffel tower or Big Ben before there is any support. No, wait, the Twin Towers were brought down and still nothing has changed. We can only hope that the Europeans are more responsive.
