#5 TOPIX > OBAMA: NO HESITATION TO ATTACK IRAN TO KEEP FROM GETTING NUCLEAR WEAPON.
* FREEREPUBLIC, WAFF > BREAKING: ISRAEL SHELVES IRAN MILITARY OPTION, in deference to Diplomacy.
Israeli Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosur.
FYI WAFF POSTER = asks "so how long before Obama is assassinated"?
* ISRAELI EXPERT: IRAN UNLIKELY TO USE NUCLEAR WEAPON UNLESS IT IS ATTACKED. "Iran issue" greater than just the ME.

ARTIC > WILKERSON = ...
> Mission = Strike, Mil Asset requirements too great or prohibitive for IDAF/ISAF. Israel more likely to fail than succeed even iff key Iran NucFacs are destroyed.
> IRAN LOOKING FOR "JAPAN-STYLE/TYPE",
"LATENT" CAPABILITY, i.e. possessing the SKILLS + NUCTECHS, ETC. TO QUICKLY PRODUCE NUCWEAPS IN TIMES OF CRISIS OR CONTINGENCY WIDOUT ACTUALLY DOING SO IN THE PRESENT.
> MAY TAKE THE US UP TO 50 YEARS OR SO TO RECOVER FROM A [Vietnam-, SuperVietnam-style]PROTRACTIVE/INTERMINABLE US-IRAN WAR.
