Reader comment on item: Israel vs. Iran

Submitted by Anne (United States), Mar 15, 2012 at 16:27

This issue should have been resolved months ago, but once again the Obama administration wanted to see if sanctions would work, kind of like using a fly swatter to smash a Rhino. Then the President asks PM Netanyahu to wait until after the 2012 elections to do anything about the Iran Nuclear problem so rising gas prices don't hurt his re-election chances.

This is really disgusting when you think about the lives that are in danger, not only in Israel, but in the entire Middle East from radiation, and environmental changes. But we wouldn't want to hurt his re-election chances. Many arab states do not want Iran to acquire Nuclear weapons first and foremost, and this is going to start Nuclear proliferation because even Arab nations are worried about not having adequate weapons systems to counteract attacks!
