Netanyahu commits Israel to destruction of Iranian nuclear program within a year if Iran does not pull back first
Netanyahu's speech was the most definitive warning he has yet delivered of military action should Iran not stop its enrichment of uranium. Netanyahu gave a time frame, gave a reason and gave a promise. He committed Israel to the destruction of Iran's nuclear program within the next year if Iran doesn't unilaterally end the program.
He really seems to have left little room --no room, in fact-- for shifting course. One wonders what his defense minister Ehud Barak and the former Mossad chief Meir Dagan, and other Israeli leaders who disagree with him in his analysis of the urgency of the Iranian nuclear threat, think of his public commitment to such a fraught--that understates it-- such a perilous and perhaps impracticable military operation." - Tom McCarthy (Guardian) at the UN.
