How Long to Wait?

I picked one sentence from this story in the NYTimes on the briefing given members of Congress on which to comment:-

While one of the senior intelligence officials said that the United States agreed that Syria was “good to go” in turning on the reactor, it would have been years before it could have produced weapons fuel.


Well, simple. Who cares if years would have gone by before Syria could have produced something nuclear (if that is true)?

If you child plays with matches, do you wait until he burns down the house before punishing him by taking away the matches?

Israel (and the rest of the world) faced with North Korea and Syria fooling around nuclear need just wait until - until when? Until they get to be like Iran?
