War clouds?

The “time has come” to deal with Iran, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Sunday, refusing to rule out military action to curb the Islamic republic’s nuclear ambitions.
Barak, speaking on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS program, indicated that Israel’s patience was wearing thin — and provided an ominous response when asked about the growing speculation of an Israeli military strike.
“I don’t think that that is a subject for public discussion,” he said. “But I can tell you that the IAEA report has a sobering impact on many in the world, leaders as well as the publics, and people understand that the time has come.”

The US should do a pre-emptive strike on Israel, take out their air force to prevent an attack on Iran.

Ok, I'm definitely not being serious, but when you look at the situation from the other side, you easily see just how stupid the Israelis are. But can you blame Iran for wanting nukes? They got the world's biggest military and its lackey constantly threatening war.
