Israel: US, West Must Threaten to Attack Iran Within Next Month

• http://news.antiwar.com, by Jason Ditz
 The latest round of talks between the P5+1 and Iran came screeching to a halt this weekend when Iran offered a proposal to settle the issue once and for all, a proposal which appears to have made Western nations, which were hoping to milk these do-nothing summits for many more years, exceedingly uncomfortable.
 
Not that this is over with, however, it’s business as usual, and for Israel that means insisting that the latest round of talks proves the need for a war. Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz is demanding that the US and other Western nations immediately issue an ultimatum to Iran to submit entirely or face invasion.

Steinitz’s comments center on a long-standing divide between the US and Israel on whether the regular US threats to attack Iran are enough, or if threatening them somewhat more often and with more specificity would be a better idea.

Steinitz wants this next round of threats to be really specific, insisting the US must set a red line of Iran totally abandoning its civilian nuclear program in “a few weeks, a month” at the most, and that it would face immediate attack if it did not do so.
