Jerusalem Post:

Former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton said he didn't see "any signs whatsoever that President Obama would make the necessary decision" to strike Iran's nuclear reactor, speaking in an interview with Israel Radio Tuesday.

Bolton claimed Israel has only three days to strike before Russia "begins the fueling process for the Bushehr reactor this Friday," after which any attack would cause radioactive fallout that could reach as far as the waters of the Persian Gulf.

In an interview with Fox Business Network earlier Tuesday Bolton had said the deadline was eight days, but he revised it to three in the Israel Radio interview, saying Iran and Russia had announced they would begin fueling on Friday.

"It has always been optimal that military force is used before the fuel rods are inserted," Bolton explained. "That's what Israel did in Osirak in 1991, and when they attacked the North Korean reactor built in Syria." Israel bombed the Osirak nuclear reactor in Iraq in 1981, and a Syrian reactor in 2007.

However Bolton didn't see any indication that an Israeli strike was going to happen. "Obviously if Israel were going to do something it wouldn't exactly be advertising it. But time is short."

Casino67, thanks for the post.

 

The abandonment of our strategic ally, Israel & the willful partisan pursuit of a failed diplomacy based on submissive appeasement; may be the costliest & deadliest of Obama's many failures.

 

Even if an Iranian nuke is never launched, it will change the balance of power, endanger their neighbors, encourage other unstable regimes to try the same, and give impetus to even more reckless conduct.

I just can't see the Israeli's allowing this. Not sure how or when, but they aren't going to allow this threat to exist.

Bibi will not allow this to happen. We'll wake up one morning this week and hear that the IDF bombed the Iranian nuke plant, since Obambi didn't have the guts to do it, but he'll still try to claim credit.

"...but he'll still try to claim credit".

But only if it goes well.
