The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is due to report on the state of Iran’s nuclear capabilities on November 8, and that assessment is likely to influence Israel’s decision.
Iran might be developing a nuclear weapons program? Who knew??? Oh, yeah. The NIE said it wasn't in the cards. Seriously, everyone knew this was the Iranian goal, even in 2007 when that ridiculous NIE report came out and downplayed the threat.
Israel is going to have to act if the threat is a clear and present danger. While the U.N. won't like it, it is completely understandable. What isn't understandable, is why the Obama administration has done nothing about the continued development for years, even during the Green Revolution. Instead they waited to fight the real powerhouse of the region: Libya.
If that not enough to make your head hurt, consider this: there may be a chance that this gang gets re-elected in 2012.
