Netanyahu went to the Americans and told them that unless they acted within months Iran would achieve parity with Israel. Then Barack went to the Americans and said we have until the end of 2010 it would be to late. The Americans have done nothing to allay Israeli concerns. Seems to be a bit of a disconnect between Israel's intelligence assessment and the American Intelligence estimate. Wonder if this has anything to do with a total lack of WMD's in a country called Iraq? Either way if I was a normal decent Israeli I'd be worried that the country who pays the bills is no longer listening to the political elite.
