Question: Who is the war-mongering, blood-thirsty nation-state now? Despite all their rhetoric, Iran has yet to talk of firing even a single ballistic missile in the direction of Israel. Can we say the same for the only apartheid regime in the Middle East?
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called for “a credible military option against Iran” to force Tehran to end its nuclear energy program.
On Tuesday, Netanyahu said that military action should be taken by the international community and headed by the United States.
“You have to ratchet up the pressure and… I don’t think that this pressure will be sufficient to have this regime change course without a credible military option that is put before them by the international community led by the United States,” he stated.
He went on to say that sanctions are not enough to stop Iran’s nuclear energy program, and they should be backed by some military action.
He has made similar bellicose remarks in the past, but they were always rejected by US Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
Netanyahu made the comments a week after Tehran announced Iran’s nuclear sites were being opened to envoys representing “geographical and political groups” in the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
