This giant is not going to go away - ever - without a stone in the forehead

Reader comment on item: Israeli Jets vs. Iranian Nukes

Submitted by Anthony Rose (United Kingdom), Jun 13, 2007 at 08:54

Muslim ideology being what it is, this anti-Israel giant is not going to go away, and grows larger every day. Such a strike as described would only buy time, at the cost of starting aggressions. That may work, but would be painful over time, somewhat like chemotherapy.

It would be better if Israel had a David with 5 stones in hand that could strike hard enough to decapitate. My recommendation is first, if possible, to obtain proof of Iran's intent to use its anticipated nuclear capability aggressively. Since the Iranian goal of the annihilation of Israel is public, just having an aggressive nuclear capability would justify an equal defence.
