Livni's comments suggest the Americans have told Israel privately that they will not attack Iran and don't want Israel to do so either. It will be sanctions or nothing. At this point it is very apparent that when Condi Rice tells Livni to jump, Livni asks her how high. If not, Livni has again proved why she cannot be allowed to become PM. Peretz was run out of office for such questionable competence as Livni has shown as FM, but he obviously did not come from the right family background as does Livni.
