Israeli FM: We Should’ve Attacked Iran in 2001


Warns that Not Attacking Now Could Harm Credibility

antiwar.com

In an interview with Israel’s Channel 2 News, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman joined the call among top officials for an immediate attack on Iran, the first time he’s been public about his opinion in months.

“I sounded the alarm in 2001,” Lieberman said, adding that he pushed for attacks on Iran back then and “the right decisions were not taken.” He insisted that Israel could never tolerate a “nuclear Iran.”

Asked about attacking today, Lieberman said he feels the same as he did in 2001, adding that the constant public threats were undermining national security and warning that a failure to attack now would harm the credibility of future threats.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is said to be “determined” to attack Iran before the November US election, and Defense Minister Ehud Barak is also on his side. It was thought they were alone in wanting the war so soon, but Lieberman seems interested in adding his voice to it as well.

    If the USA fights this war for Israel, the tune will be this–true, Iran had no WMDs, but if we leave, all our troops will have died for nothing and we’ll be dishonored. Israel is actually threatening America, because gas will go to fifty bucks a gallon and our economy will crash.

    iran in 2001 is not iran in 2012, iran has become a very powerful regional player who creates its own military hardware but i guess zionist arrogance got in the way they wanted to get rid of saddam. Believe its their arrogance which will be their downfall.

    “failure to attack now would harm the credibility of future threats.” Israel’s Channel 2 News, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman. Way to go Avi! God forbid that Israel’s threats should lose a little “credibility”. That’s worth starting WW3 over, having the Soviets come to the aid of Iran, and the Dumb Ass USA pitch in for Israel. Lots of missiles crossing the water, reigning down death and destruction on good families. Lets TEST your credibility Avi. You let UN Nuclear Weapons Inspectors in to Israel to count your 200+ warheads, and then Iran will let the same in to their country to see if they can find even ONE. Israel has consistently REFUSED for decades to let their Nuclear stockpile be audited by Anyone.

    That face is diabolical just like the rest of the Jews.
    Israel has been the danger for the whole world for long time and the Visionary John F Kennedy said it when he lived. John Kennedy didn’t want Israel to go nuclear and that was one of the reasons the Jews murdered hi.

    n a search for `Israeli FM: We Should’ve Attacked Iran in 2001`, looking for evidence of him actually saying the pronoun `We`.

    I didn’t see it, so conclude that he didn’t want to express it that way as he would have been handing the hordes of `anti Semites` out there the legendary gift riposte,”Who do you mean, we, paleface ?”, as now we are the lesser beings.

    He means to trick us all into fighting and paying for his wars, and never ever have it recorded that he was asking us at any point !

    Reparations for Holofraud Guilt take this form also, where we feel morally obligated to come to the aid of someone we believe we had earlier wronged without actually being asked.

    Noticed that three people saw by his visage that he is insane. True. But over there it’s not noticed because . . .
