Being A Bit Brunt On Iran

I had written previously that a military strike on Iran to prevent it going nuclear is now a surety because in chilling out Israel, Obama has assured us that we cannot trust him.

That was a bit brunt, but true.

Yaakov Amidror, until this past month the head of Israel's National Security Council, puts it better:

There is no reason to think that the six powers will have more leverage in the future than they had before the Geneva agreement. On the contrary, they just gave that leverage away. After years of disingenuous negotiations, Iran is now just a few months away from a bomb.
The West has surrendered its most effective diplomatic tool in exchange for baseless promises of goodwill. I pray its gamble pays off, for if it does not there will be only one tool left to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. The Geneva agreement has made the world a more dangerous place. It did not have to be this way.
