    Even israeli defence minister Ehud Barak said something very similar just a few days ago. And I think we can assume that behind the political curtain, most people of the political leadership are absolutely aware of this. So why are they always doing their best to give Iran the impression that getting the atomic bomb is the only insurance against being attacked? For example, not long ago the USA offered all countries in the world a deal not to attack them with nuclear weapons if those countries would in return stop trying to acquire nuclear weapons. They offered this to pretty much all countries in the world, except for Iran. Why? If it were true that they only want to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, why would Iran be pretty much the only country excluded from this offer? The only plausible explanation I can think of is that they were afraid Iran would actually accept.
