The nuclear moment of truth is fast approaching

The moment of truth is fast approaching the world in general and Israel in particular. As I stated in my blog last week (Six month forecast for the Middle East) The Iranians are much closer to obtaining this capability than once thought. New Israeli intelligence (May 6, 2008) predicts that the Iranian nuclear capability is much closer than some thought by almost a full year - from 2009 to the end of 2008.

According to the new timeline, Iran could have a nuclear weapon by the end of this year. This timeline dictates that the world community should take action now! I thank God that President George W. Bush defied the liberals in Congress and pushed for funding of the missile-defense shield. The same shield that President Bill Clinton derided as a failure and stated “As president, I would oppose the kinds of missile defense systems that would unnecessarily upset strategic stability and threaten to open the gates”.

The new Iranian ICBM Shahab 4 will be able to reach Western Europe and possibly the American East coast at the whim of a mad man. President Bush went ahead with the missile-defense negotiations with Poland and the Czech Republic, in defiance of Russian President Vladimir Putin, to protect the Americans and Europeans from a rouge strike. The interceptors that will be stationed in Europe will not be able to protect the Israelis from being targeted by their tormentors in Iran and may not be ready to protect the West if this new timeline holds true.

The world cannot wait for the United Nations Security Council to impose more puny sanctions on Iran. They do not work and the Iranians do not care. A thermonuclear strike on New York City will kill a lot more than the 3000 that perished on 9/11. The Iranian alarm clock has been going off for some time now; we need to quit hitting the snooze button.
