Olmert throws in the towel on Iran

Earlier this week, I reported that the US was leaving Israel to its own devices on dealing with Iran. Today, Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert decided he doesn't have any devices, and has instructed his cabinet to find ways to learn to live with a nuclear Iran.
Israel is quietly preparing for the possibility of a nuclear-armed Iran despite public pledges to deny its arch-foe the means to pose an "Existential threat", Israeli political and defence sources said on Thursday.

They said Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has instructed cabinet officials to draft proposals on how Israel, whose security strategy is widely assumed to hinge on having the Middle East's only atomic arsenal, might deal with losing this monopoly.
Two comments: Olmert is a putz. And so much for David Brooks' theory - someone will have to think of another excuse why Israel is going to Annapolis.

I hope this is just a rouse(sp?) to keep them(Iran) off guard and off balanced. OTOH, it is very hard not to believe Olmert.

The United States, Arabs, Israel and Iran: Crimes

Iran is a natural non-Arab nation for Israel security in the Middle East region. Persians and Jews have common historical and cultural links. People of Israel know that below the surface of verbal bravado from the present Presidents of Iran and Israel, these two nations have to survive the sea of hostile Arabs. Iraq invasion of Iran was a reality check for Israel.

Israel recognized that the same Arabic nations who supported Iraq against Iran will attack again non-Arab Israel. These two nations were both Muslim. Jews are not really welcomed among Arabs. These findings are not surprising considering the integrated financial, technical, and armaments that were provided by many Arab countries to support Arabic Iraq against non-Arab Iranians and Kurds. Iran and Israel have a lot of common security interests. The United States’ and Israel’s common interests in the region do not support attacking Iran. We must stop arming Arab nations, providing massive military aids (Egypt) hoping that all will be fine. These arms will eventually kill American and Israeli people.

The interests of the United States in the world dictate that we must open a frank unconditional dialogue with Iran recognizing the constructive contribution of the country to Afghanistan against Taliban, conflicts between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and al Qaeda in Iraq.
