    The article picks and chooses history to suit its own conclusion, After Begin's successful strike against the Iraqi reactor - there was worldwide condemnation, including from then VP George Bush I. The same Bush went on to repeat bombing that and other Iraqi targets in Desrert storm, His son, Bush II atatcked Iraq and executed Saddam; and his successor Dick Cheney (VP to Bush II) thanked Israel for exactly what first Bush had condemned - ie destroying the Tammuz reactor. If Israel does bomb Iran, there maybe a chorus of the usual condemnation, but the thank yous will come not only from UK, USA and Germany, but also Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and UAE. There will also be respect from China and Russia, who are looking for partners in miilitary, hi tech and agriculture, that are not as critical as the USA. Israel also has new gas and oil resources - which will be exported to Europe and to the eastern markets. So the arab dominance in energy is also fading.
