I’m wondering if Trump is going to give the Israelis the green light to take out the Iranian nuclear facilities? The US has in its arsenal that bomb for deep penetration of the earth — the “bunker buster” — so the Iranians can’t just dig deep enough to protect their nuclear assets.
We’ve backed away from the agreement with the Iranians — the agreement is a bust, and the Iranians are busy again creating more nuclear material, yet Trump’s policy is still we won’t allow them to have a nuclear weapon. Sanctions alone will not restrain the Iranians from developing a weapon. Something’s got to give.
It’s an open question whether the world would be a safer place or actually more dangerous if the Israelis were to attack and destroy the Iranian nuclear facilities. What do you think?
