IRAN: To Bomb or Not to Bomb … That is the Question

February 28, 2012

You tell me what you think, and I’ll tell you what I think … by a show of hands, how many of you think that Israel and/or the United States will bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities? And how many of you do not think so? I have long felt that there is absolutely no doubt that Israel will, in fact, bomb the facilities. The way I see it, it is part of a basic Israeli doctrine known as “the Begin doctrine” … the doctrine which led Menachim Begin to go against world opinion and bomb Iraq’s nuclear reactor in 1981. Begin’s basic philosophy was that, given the hostility and the nature of Israel’s enemies, Israel could not allow its enemies to possess weapons of mass destruction. It was this doctrine that was implemented once again in 2007 when Israel bombed the facility in Syria which that country was using to produce nuclear weapons. It is as simple as that! For one of Israel’s enemies to be in a position to destroy Israel is just unacceptable, even if the bomb was not to be used, just its possession would change the entire equation in the Middle East. Every future decision and policy of Israel would have to be made with the shadow of a nuclear Iran hanging over its head. And if you don’t think that shadow – in and of itself – doesn’t make a difference, just look to Libya … if Libya’s Khadafi had gone ahead and developed a nuclear bomb, NATO would not have been freeing his country. Just look at Pakistan … time and again Pakistan has spit in the face of the U.S. harboring, arming and supporting terrorists. We put up with them. You know why? Because it is estimated they have 100 atom bombs. Just ask Iraq … if Saddam Hussein had had an atomic bomb, he would still be sitting pretty in a palace in Kuwait. READ MORE
