But despite these things some still think attack Iran militarily is a good idea seemingly heedless of the terrible pain and suffering such a move is certain to cause. The following is from a columnist who, through no fault of her own, is often quoted by PCG.
Here is the place to mention that Israel still may have the ability to attack Iran’s nuclear sites. If it does, then it should attack them as quickly and effectively as possible.Let's have another war, as though there are not enough in the Middle East already.
No, a successful Israeli attack cannot turn back the clock. Israel cannot replace the US as a regional superpower, dictating policy to our neighbors. But a successful attack on Iran’s nuclear program along with the adoption of a vigilantly upheld strategy of active nuclear defense can form the basis of a successful Israeli nuclear defense system.
And no, Israel shouldn’t be overly concerned with how Obama will respond to such actions. (Caroline Glick, Obama's Age of Nuclear Chaos, Jerusalem Post, July 16, 2015.)
This sounds like a terrible idea.
There is no guarantee that such a move would even work. Will it make Iran bend to outside pressure or will they respond in kind?
Such a move is practically certain to cause much pain and suffering for everyone concerned. This pain and suffering should be avoided.
Shouldn't one at least wait for the agreement to fail to make one's side look justified rather then think of such things now?
I strongly hope no one in power acts on such an idea.
