in response to reader comment: The Iranian leadership

Whether it is just bluster and posturing, as Arabs are wont to do, or a real threat, Israel has no choice but to take them at their word. This is not comparable to Saddam Hussein boasting about WMD or how he will destroy the US. There are mountains of evidence and reams of proof from countless inspections and satellites. If this is just bluster, they sure fooled us. And we will have to act on that.
