Neither Israeli talk nor Israeli military force nor USA sanctions will stop Iran from building nukes if indeed that is her intent. And when sanctions are mentioned, I can only recall how wrong the West was when they thought that Saddam Hussein had nukes. The use of force is the least desirable of options, and the threat of force is the stupidest choice of all for the West to make. Consider the value of Israel's unending stream of accusations against Iran:. With Ahmadinejad talking back from the other end, it has become a pointless war of words only good for emotional impact among nations. Israel's use of military force would only exacerbate the situation. Israel talks big, carries a stick she thinks is big, and sounds off like the little guy on the block whose only concern is to be noticed. A strike in Iraq, another in Syria. If she tries to hit Iran, historians will write her off as the dumbest warmonger in history.
