Israel Faceoff With Iran's Nuclear Weapons Aspirations
Israel Regarding Iran: "Whatever It Takes"
The Associated Press is reporting that Israel has announced an even harder stance against Iran's nuclear program.
Israel has continually voiced the opinion that the Obama Administration is naive about Iran's intentions, and so Israel plans to take it upon herself to move on Iran's nuclear facilities. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is not ruling out any military action, and says that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike to take away Iran's ability to obtain nuclear weapons.
"No option should be removed from the table," said the Israeli Defense Minister in a press conference.
The American Government currently has a different opinion on how to deal with Iran's nuclear aspirations, desiring to take a diplomatic road first. Since Israel considers itself the prime target of any eventual Iranian nuclear bomb, it has become apparent to the Israelis that it is up to them to stop Iranian nuclear aggression before it begins.
Iran has continually claimed its nuclear aspirations are for domestic purposes.
