Israel to Mad Mullah's: "Soon"
With the US's little giftthe IDF should be well equipped to 'deal' with this real and present danger.
: "Israel's Defence Minister refused to rule out a pre-empt-ive strike on Iran yesterday, claiming that Tehran was 'close to a point of no return' on its suspected development of a nuclear weapon.
At a meeting with journalists in London, Shaul Mofaz did little to dispel the sense of unease caused by comments last week by the US Vice-President, Dick Cheney, who suggested Israel might 'decide to act first' to end Iran's nuclear threat.
Mr Mofaz said: 'I believe that none of the Western countries can live with Iran having a nuclear capability - not the US, not the European countries and nor other countries.'
But he stressed that the 'first step' should be through diplomatic channels to resolve the standoff with Iran, suspected by the US and Israel of using its civilian programme as a cover for weapons development."
