    Netanyahu and Barak keep harping on the threat of Israel bombing Iran, while everybody with a bit of brain can see that this is essentially a terrible idea for Israel, "the stupidest thing I have ever heard" it was called by M. Dagan, who headed Mossad until late 2010. A bombing will merely cause some delay in Iran's plans, but will have terrible long term consequences for Israel because of certain retaliation and hatred that will last many many years, to say nothing of how the US will react when it is attacked by Iran in retaliation. In addition, following the bombing, Iran is likely to quit the NPT so the world will have no idea where their ACTUAL program is at. Too bad that bombing Iran is the only idea Netanyahu has of improving Israel's position, and stopping Iran is what he ran on in the 2009 elections, Unfortunately, and dangerously, Netanyahu is dead serious in his threats, and Dagan knows it or else he would NOT have spoken out.
