It will take a year for the United States to respond to Iran leaders to go ahead with developing nuclear weapons. This is from US secretary of defense Leon Panetta [Iran independent News Service,Israeli International News].
The unfortunate thing for the US is that Iran does not have to publicly declare it is developing nuclear weapons, it might have already done so quietly while Obama tries to exhaust all means by diplomacy to encourage Iranian leaders to drop its world order shattering plans! Every day that Obama delays sending a strong signal to Iran that the US does not want a nuclear powered Iran is a blessing to the intrasigent Iranian leaders! It buys time for them to go about its secretive way to be a nuclear powered nation in the league of Pakistan and India.
By not drawing a red line, and in spite of a United Nations report that Iran is progressing in its nuclear goals in terms of nuclear fuel enrichment, Obama risks and has already riled up Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel. Israel is being left alone to fend off for itself and may have to strike deep in Iran as it did in Iraq. But the theocratic Iranians have dug in, putting their nuclear processing plants very deep into the bowels of the earth, making them difficult to be damaged by ordinary ordnance bombs. It may require a MOAB ground busting type bombs and/or nuclear weapons to destroy these installations.
Netanyahu has said dangerously:
"The world tells Israel to wait because there is still time," he said. "And I ask: Wait for what? Until when? Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don't have a moral right to place a red light before Israel."
The current state of Iran nuclear work is reported in [United Nations receives new intelligence on Iran Nuke work], its damming conclusion: Iran has made significant gains in building a nuclear weapon, and in fact has performed computer modeling on calculating the destructive power of an atomic warhead within the past three years.
Obama will go down in history as the president of the United States, who facilitated Iran to become a regional nuclear power. Once Iran attains its goals, the Middle East will be a powder keg drawing in the start of Armageddon.
The dangers of a unilateral attack by Israel on Iran nuclear sites is such that the head of UK M16 intelligence has made a personal visit to the prime minister [M16 boss met Netanyahu]
