Israel get Ready for a Nuclear Iran

Israel is preparing for the possibility of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons, the Reuters news agency reported.

The agency quoted a source close to Olmert as saying there were "long-term ramifications to be addressed, like how to maintain our deterrent and military response capabilities, or how to off-set the attrition on Israeli society that would be generated by fear of Iranian nukes."

Israeli cabinet as Minister Ami Ayalon refused to discuss specific policy issues, but told Reuters that there was a need for a three-point strategy against Iran.

"First, we must make clear that this is a threat not just to Israel, but to the wider world. Second, we must exhaustively consider all preventive options. And third, we must anticipate the possibility of those options not working," Ayalon said.

It appears very likely that Israel will try to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities, but there is little chance that military strikes will be enough to prevent Iran from eventually going nuclear.
