    i do not think, israel should attack iran, but neither is the "ambassadors" stance any correct. what this former ambassador to iran is recommending (doing nothing), is what every dictator has been dreaming of since world is turning. history has shown, that this "strategy" doesnt work out. such aggressors have to be stopped asap. they mustnt have the chance to prepare plans and build up their network of evil within and outside the country. every day counts. who does have to stop them ? the international community, not a single country. ahmedinedschad is hitler, imo. how could the nazis have been stopped ? not by words, not by embargos etc. only by weapons-force on the whole country. the (probably also) terrible effects of stopping an aggressor, are caused by him alone. the only question with iran is: WHEN to strike.

    from the article: The message is clear: Israel must not strike Iran
