B. Netanyahu considers Iran may be attacked within a matter of months

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues announcements and warnings against Iran. As he announced during a TV interview on Thursday an attack on Iran could take place within a matter of months.

“We’re not standing with a stopwatch in hand,” he said. “It’s not a matter of days or weeks, but also not of years. The result must be removal of the threat of nuclear weapons in Iran‘s hands.”

As haaretz.com writes Netanyahu gave separate interviews to all three Israeli television stations. First interview after his return from Washington he gave earlier this week.

“I hope there won’t be a war at all, and that the pressure on Iran will succeed,” the prime minister stressed, noting that his preferred choice would be for Iran to halt its nuclear program and dismantle the uranium enrichment facility located in an underground site near Qom. “That would make me happiest,” he said. “I think every citizen of Israel would be happy.”

“Making decisions isn’t the problem; it’s making the right decision,” Netanyahu added. “If you don’t make the decision and don’t succeed in preventing this [an Iranian nuke], to whom will you explain this – to the historians? To the generations before you, and the generations that won’t come after you?”

Another announcement about Iranian nuclear program was made by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). According to it the Iranian nuclear program continues to advance, despite unprecedented economic and diplomatic pressure by the United States and its international partners.

As Wall Street Journal writes referring to the IAEA Iranian production of enriched uranium has sharply expanded in recent months, while agency inspectors have been prevented from accessing sites and scientists.

The West tries to make Iran deny the nuclear program. Especially the USA uses various economical sanctions for the aim. Iranian side announces that the nuclear enrichment is needed just for the peace civilian needs. Iran also tries to show that it stands against the economical pressure.
