Cipora... There is something I would like to clarify... I am not in favor of attacking Iran. Even though, a large part of the international community [including you and I] believe Iran is a threat... with or without nuclear weapons. Still, the only justification would be... if [and only if] they attack first. This puts me in a very awkward position... because I'm also not comfortable with the situation that exist right now. But like you said... 'responsible adults' have difficult responsibilities. And believe me Cipora... I'm not naive enough to think the Iranians will back-down thru negotiations... that's simply not their character. This leaves all of us with very few good options. In this kind of situation... I would suggest not to do something that everyone knows would produce catastrophic events... and still not accomplish the intended goal. Regards...
