Are Israel's leaders completely delusional?
Will Israel Attack Iran? — from the New York Times. Read the whole thing (it’s long).
Basically, the reporter, along with a number of experts, believe that it’s all but inevitable that Israel is going to unilaterally attack Iran in an attempt to take out its nuclear program.
Experts also believe that such an attack would at best delay nuclear capability for a year, would probably start a regional war involving Hezbollah and Syria, and would likely draw the United States into the war.
The Israeli leaders interviewed in the article believe, or say they believe, that Iran is actually going to attack them with a nuclear weapon. The deputy prime minister brought up the possibility of Iranians smuggling in a nuke to the United States through the Mexican border.
These are the kinds of positions that people like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich hold, and that are usually dismissed as laughably ignorant.
Are Israel’s leaders “bluffing,” or are they actually crazy enough to attack Iran?
