Commentary: Holocaust II?
WASHINGTON, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- The prevailing mood in Israel about Iran’s nuclear facilities is hawkish and uncompromising. “It is a race against time, and time is winning,” said a key Israeli player. The Bush administration argues the clock won’t run out until Jan. 20, 2009, when the president turns things over to his successor. Barack Obama’s advisers are saying the clock should be reset to the results of next June’s Iranian presidential elections. John McCain, with Joseph Lieberman by his side, agrees with Israel’s hawks.
