article imageNetanyahu pushes for military action against Iran

By Sami Zaatari     Mar 5, 2013 in Politics
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for a 'credible military threat' to deter Iran's nuclear program, during a speech he gave via satellite to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)
Netanyahu warned that diplomacy alone will not work:
And I have to tell you, from the bottom of my heart, and the clarity of my brain, words alone will not stop Iran.
The Prime Minister claimed that Iran had not yet passed the red line he famously drew at the UN, but was getting closer as time passed by:
It's still not crossed the red line I drew with the United Nations last September but Iran is getting closer to that red line, and it is putting itself in a position to cross that line very quickly once it decides to do so.
American Vice President Joe Biden was present at the same conference, warning that America was not "bluffing" on Iran and that a "military option" was on the table.
Meanwhile an Iranian government spokesman claimed that recent talks over Iran's nuclear program were positive, and that an eventual solution could be found, though he gave no details.
