In recent days, the crisis regarding Iranian nuclear aspirations have come to a head. The U.N. deadline of August 31st. has come and gone, and still Iran remains defiant.
"Ahmadinejad won't stop uranium enrichment", Kofi Annan said Sunday.
American intelligence estimates Iran will have the means to make a nuclear weapon within 5 to 8 years. Israeli intelligence says they are only months away. Iran will have the capability of not only striking American forces in Iraq and the State of Israel, but also as far West as Great Britain. So the questions remain, what should be done about Iran, and who should do it.
This very volatile situation has no easy answers. In 1981 Israel attacked Osirak, the Iraqi nuclear facility near Baghdad. Regardless of public opinion at the time, Israel did the most intelligent thing for itself, and destroyed Saddam Hussein’s abilities to build a nuclear weapon. Now, for it’s own sake, Israel must do the same again. It won’t be easy.
Can the mission itself be done? I believe it can. If there is any country in the world that can do it, it is Israel.
Israel not only has a fundamental right to defend itself, but it also has a fundamental right to exist. Israel has a responsibility to it’s citizens, regardless of what some in the world might think. Iran having a nuclear weapon is a direct threat to Israel’s existence, and if one does not agree, one only has to look at the venomous rhetoric coming from Iran’s leader, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. So the question remains, should Israel attack Iran. In my opinion, not only should Israel attack Iran, Israel must attack Iran.
