Olmert: Only Ignorance Can Save Iran
In all likelihood, nothing can save Iran from the certain onslaught of US and/or Israeli aggression. But, according to Olmert
the key issue regarding Iran was not when it builds a nuclear bomb, but rather when it acquires the knowledge they need to manufacture such arms.That knowledge, he insists, is "just a few months away."
"The technological threshold is very close. It can be measured in months rather than years," Olmert added, repeating statements previously made by other senior Israeli officials.Apparently, ignorance truly is bliss. Israelis will leave you alone only if you don't "know" how to protect yourself.
Olmert said the world could not take Iran's nuclear ambitions lightly because Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly called for Israel's destruction.Now, it's the whole world's duty to protect Israel from the rotten fruits of its own mischief.
However, he said it was unlikely Israel would act on its own, diplomatically or militarily, to deal with the problem.This is the world's fourth military superpower? They don't even dare to act diplomatically on their own!
What a joke.
In 1981, Israel's air force attacked the Iraqi nuclear reactor at Osirak, destroying the facility. But Olmert said the situations cannot be compared, and Israel will try to persuade the Western world to impose sanctions on Iran.Of course, they can't be compared - Iran can actually defend itself!
Olmert expressed confidence that Bush would "lead other nations in taking the necessary measures to stop Iran from becoming a nuclear power."I'm going to go out on a limb over here. Why not protect yourselves, for a change?
