IAEA chief says Israeli strike on Iran would be 'insane'
17-May-2009 (4 comments)

The head of the UN's nuclear watchdog Mohamed ElBaradei called any possible Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities an "insane" move, in an interview with a German magazine. "Attacking Iran would be insane," ElBaradei, the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, told Der Spiegel in an interview to appear Monday. "This would trigger an explosion across the whole region and the Iranians would immediately start to construct a (nuclear) bomb and would be assured the support of the entire Muslim world," he said.

i hardly think anyone would disagree with this

whether it be an israel attack on iran or an iranian attack on israel.  it's a lose-lose situation for everyone.  and if one agrees with the statement that israel won't do anything without advance approval by the US, then i think it's safe to say there won't be an attack.  period.

whether you personally think iran is already developing nukes or not, it's for damn sure they will if attacked.  under those circumstances, i wouldn't blame them.

strict adult supervision. Israel's economy is in shambles and he pesonaly bears a lot of responsibility for it due to his right wing policies during his first "tour" as the PM. He NEEDS the fat checks the US sends Israel, so he'll behave. Trust me.
