Netanyahu ‘Ready To Press The Button’ On Iran

Netanyahu ‘Ready To Press The Button’ On Iran
UPI FILE

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “ready to press the button” on Iran to stop its nuclear program if current sanctions to not end it soon.

The leader told an Israeli television station that he is prepared to act unilaterally in a strike against the Iranians, as the United States has failed to show outright support for an Israeli strike on the nation.

“When David Ben-Gurion declared the foundation of the state of Israel, was it done with American approval?” Netanyahu asked in an interview on Israel’s Channel 2 on Monday. “When Levi Eshkol was forced to act in order to loosen the siege before 1967, was it done with the Americans’ support?

“If someone sits here as the prime minister of Israel and he can’t take action on matters that are cardinal to the existence of this country, its future and its security, and he is totally dependent on receiving approval from others, then he is not worthy of leading,” Netanyahu added. “I can make these decisions.”

Netanyahu’s remarks, on the eve of the Presidential election, reminded some pundits of the coziness between him and Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The Prime Minister may have been banking on a Romney victory in order to ensure that the United States would back his nation following a pre-emptive strike on Iran.
