Bolton: Israel strike is in America's interest
Get Ready for a Nuclear Iran -John Bolton
We face a stark, unattractive reality. There are only two options: Iran gets nuclear weapons, or someone uses pre-emptive military force to break Iran's nuclear fuel cycle and paralyze its program.
There is no possibility the Obama administration will use force. It is hard to conclude anything except that the Obama administration is resigned to Iran possessing nuclear weapons.
That leaves Israel. Such a strike would advance both Israel's and America's security interests, and also those of the Arab states. Nonetheless, the intellectual case for that strike must be better understood in advance by the American public and Congress in order to ensure a sympathetic reaction by Washington.
