Ex-IDF Intelligence Chief: Nuclear Iran More Dangerous than Military Strike - Natasha Mozgovaya
Former IDF Military Intelligence chief Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin said on Saturday that a nuclear Iran would be more dangerous than carrying out a military strike on Iran. Speaking at a conference of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, Yadlin said he favored exhausting all other options before striking Iran's nuclear facilities, but stressed, "The flying time of a missile from Tehran to Tel Aviv is seven minutes and the temptation for first strike is huge." "If they can't be contained when they don't have nuclear weapons, how can they be contained when they do?"  (Ha'aretz)
