More Predictions of Israeli Airstrike on Iran
I have written on the madness of Mahmoud Ahmadinejah and the threat Iran poses to Israel. See here, here, and here. Other bloggers are now joining the fray.
David Bernstein at Volokh Conspiracy has just returned from Israel and has this prediction: “I predict that Israel will strike Iran within the next few months, with the goal of disrupting or terminating Iran’s nuclear program.” He notes that “[g]iven that the anti-Iranian consensus is so solid even on the Left, I would be very surprised if the Israeli government fails to follow through on its promise to prevent Iran from acquiring atomic weapons–assuming, of course, that Iran isn’t stopped by other international forces.”
I will follow David Bernstein’s prediction with two of my own: As long as Iran continues its current course and does not take outright belligerent action against Israel: (1) The United Nations Security Council will not authorize the use of force against Iran; and (2) the United States will not unilaterally attack Iran.
I would be curious what our readers think. Scroll down and vote.
