Even Israel Admits that Iran Has Not Decided to Build a Nuclear Bomb

The intelligence assessment Israeli officials will present later this week to [Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin ] Dempsey indicates that Iran has not yet decided whether to make a nuclear bomb.

The Israeli view is that while Iran continues to improve its nuclear capabilities, it has not yet decided whether to translate these capabilities into a nuclear weapon – or, more specifically, a nuclear warhead mounted atop a missile. Nor is it clear when Iran might make such a decision.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Wednesday that Israel was “very far off” from a decision about an attack on Iran over its nuclear program.

Barak was speaking on Israel’s Army Radio ahead of a planned visit this week by U.S. armed forces chief General Martin Dempsey that has triggered speculation Washington would press Israel to delay any action against Tehran’s nuclear program.

  1. Barak: Eventually Even an Attack Won’t Stop Iran

    “Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Friday that the world must stop Iran quickly before it reaches the point where even a military attack would not stop it from acquiring nuclear weapons.

    Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Barak said, “The situation is urgent, because the Iranians deliberately drifting to what we call a ‘resistant zone’ in which nothing will not block them.”

    Barak called for further harsher sanctions against Iranian banks and its oil industry “so that we all know soon enough if the Iranians are willing to give up their nuclear weapons program.””

    WTF is wrong with these psychopaths …oh don’t worry …

  2. Look at this …
    “Postponed Israel-U.S. Drill to be Held in October”

    Then consider this sentence from the article …”Ma’ariv also noted that in preparation for the drill, U.S. military officers will arrive in Israel next week. About 3,000 U.S. soldiers are expected to arrive in Israel to take part in the large-scale exercise, the report said, and they will be joined by about 2,000 IDF soldiers.”

    Why are they arriving 8 months ahead of the exercise ?

  3. “Let there be no doubt. America is determined to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon and I will take no options on the table to achieve that goal.”

    These are the statements of the US president Barak Obama at the State of the Union address as if Iran was on the path of acquiring a nuclear weapon.

    This is while Iran has repeatedly said it is not seeking nuclear weapons and that is what this edition of News Analysis will discuss.
