Israeli Attack on Iran 'Would Not Stop Nuclear Program' - Dempsey

U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey said today that an Israeli attack would delay but probably not destroy Iran’s nuclear program. "I don't want to be complicit if they [Israel] choose to do it," Gen. Dempsey said.
Demsey’s latest remarks reinforce Washington’s opposition to unilateral Israeli action. He added that sanctions against Iran should be given a chance to work. International coalition applying pressure on Iran "could be undone if [Iran] was attacked prematurely," the general warned. (The Guardian, 31 August)

Israel is playing a chess game with the chess-maker. Who is smarter? Israel attack on IRAN would not only not stop its nuclear program but also would probably be an end to the whole nation of Israel.
