Not One Word

We all know that it needs to be done. It's just a matter of who will have the courage to actually carry it out. You don't let madmen play with dangerous things much as you wouldn't let a child play with matches. And Iran is set to have a very dangerous weapon capable of aiming at the heart of Israel and some European cities. With the recent arms deal with Russia, they'll soon have the capability of a better air defense. So not one word from anybody or any country when Israel takes out Iran's nuclear program.

ISRAEL's armed forces have been ordered by Ariel Sharon, the prime minister, to be ready by the end of March for possible strikes on secret uranium enrichment sites in Iran, military sources have revealed.

The order came after Israeli intelligence warned the government that Iran was operating enrichment facilities, believed to be small and concealed in civilian locations.

Iran's stand-off with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over nuclear inspections and aggressive rhetoric from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president, who said last week that Israel should be moved to Europe, are causing mounting concern.

The crisis is set to come to a head in early March, when Mohamed El-Baradei, the head of the IAEA, will present his next report on Iran. El-Baradei, who received the Nobel peace prize yesterday, warned that the world was losing patience with Iran.

A senior White House source said the threat of a nuclear Iran was moving to the top of the international agenda and the issue now was: What next? That question would have to be answered in the next few months, he said. TimesOnLine


Someone needs to do it and soon. Israel has a right to be concerned because when the Madman of Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has said Israel needs to be wiped off the face of the map or moved to Europe. The recent terror attacks at the Israeli shopping mall and the increased activity by Hizbollah have come after leaders of Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and the Popular Front for the Liberation Of Palestine were in Iran to meet with Iran's Foreign Minister, Manouchehr Mottaki. Not one word when Israel takes out Iran's nuclear program and it would be nice if the US and some brave European countries flew side by side with them on this mission.

I am afraid it won't be as easy to run a precision strike to remove the nuclear menace from the hands of mad mullahs as it was in Iraq.

Still the time is runn ing out.
