Israel On Deck To Deal With Iran

Not to overplay this theme here, but the UN should be all worked up in a lather very shortly as Israel, whose non-4th Century mentality enrages their neighbors, get ready to engage in that most abominable of endeavors: Self preservation:

"We are ready to do whatever is demanded of us" in order to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, IAF commander Maj. -Gen. Ido Nehushtan told German magazineDer Spiegel in an interview published Tuesday.

Nehushtan told the magazine that whether a military strike is eventually decided upon is a political question and not an issue of Israel's military capabilities.

That last part could either be a reference to politics on the home front, and the related arguments about timetables and semantics. Or, it could simply mean that Iran will find themselves in a developmental quagmire sometime before January 2oth, when the new Oval Office may be far more disinclined to see any military action as anything other than antagonistic.

Either way, one should expect boiling condemnation from Turtle Bay.
