talk is cheap. netanyahu called for preemptive strike against iran. this was widely viewed as political manuevering within a post-sharon likud. the larger problem with the Iranian president is that his calls for annhilation of israel encourage Hizbollah and Palestinian radicals to kill and kill often. on the other hand , as he sees it, Israel stands with its sharpened knife hanging over the whole of the palestinian people , who are basically defenseless if and when Israel decides to bring the blade down. that's the best and most rational interpretation to put on his repeated incendiary comments, and it assumes he really cares about the plight of the palestinians. i don't know if that's a correct assumption, or if he's just venting his irritation / rage over recent Hizbollah setbacks in Lebanon viz Israel at the border, and seeing a weakening Syria, which in turn weakens Hizbollah and, again in turn, weakens Iran itself as a power in the region.
