Israel and USA scheduled to Tag-Team Iran in an aerial attempt to eliminate Irans 'nuclear targets'. Sounds pretty Zionist if you ask me. Last week Dick Cheney claimed that he was not ready to rule out military action by Israel.

He also stated that: 'the Iranians had significant nuclear capability, given the fact that Iran has a stated policy that their objective is the destruction of Israel, the Israelis might well decide to act first, and let the rest of the world worry about cleaning up the diplomatic mess afterwards.'

Israeli intelligence officials estimate that Iran could be capable of producing enriched uranium within six months and have nuclear weapons within two years. Earlier this month, head of Israeli military intelligence Maj. Gen. Aharon Ze'evi said that while Iran was not currently capable of enriching uranium to build a nuclear bomb, "it is only half a year away from achieving such independent capability – if it is not stopped by the West."

Israeli officials have also accused Tehran of trying to dupe the international community.. They believe Iran will try and stave off the threat of sanctions while pushing ahead secretly with its efforts to attain nuclear weapons capability.

ElBaradei admitted Iran had "cheated" in the past about its nuclear program, but said it was now "cooperating." The IAEA determined in November that Iran was complying with an agreement to cease uranium enrichment. For its part, Iran insists that its program has a purely civilian goal – the production of electricity.
