Netanyahu: Iran accelerating nuclear program

That story the other day about President Hussein Obama coming to Israel to stop an Israeli attack on Iran is becoming more believable by the minute. On Monday, Prime Minister Netanyahu told the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations that Iran is accelerating its nuclear program.
By installing new, faster centrifuges, Iran is shortening by one-third the time it will take to produce “one nuclear bomb’s worth of highly enriched uranium,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday.
Netanyahu, speaking to to the annual meeting in Jerusalem of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, said the Iranians had not crossed the red line he outlined during his speech to the UN in September, but that the faster centrifuges means it will take them less time to do so.
In September he said the Iranians could reach that point by the spring or the summer.


Netanyahu reiterated his position that the way to stop the Iranians is to “put greater pressure on them, upgrade the sanctions.” Plus, he said, “they have to know that if the sanctions and diplomacy fail they will face a credible military threat. That is essential, and nothing else will do the job, and it is getting closer.”
What could go wrong?
