    The statements made by Pardo and others are badly qualified. A nuclear armed Iran does not mean nuclear weapons that can be mounted on a missile and fired into Israel. Iran already has a Pakastani missile that is too heavy for use on a missile. It is not clear that an Iranian made missile, even if it could be made to explode could be launched on a missile into Israel. Attacks on their missile capability would be foolish, uncertain, possibly useless, and totally unnecessary. If a nuclear bomb could be brought into Israel and exploded that would be a different issue since there are sources for such a bomb; Pakistan, N. Korea, Russia(?) etc. That is a significant risk. If Iran develops a nuclear bomb it adds to the list and risk. However, such a bomb would have a signature and if it came from Iran's effort it would constitute a fatal risk for Iran withoujt destroying Israel. The proper approach is to keep up the pressure for inspection and at the same time continue to rachet up the economic consequences for Iran as the US is doing. The US no doubt will eventually destroy Iran's economy, which will emasculate Iran and precipitate a Persian Spring. It will also resolve the probelm with the PalArabs.
