Ariel Sharon has announced that his country will not attack Iran unilaterally over its supposed nuclear weapons ambition. He said Israel does not need
to lead the way on the Iranian nuclear weapon issue. He claims Iran is months away from solving some technical issues preventing them having nuclear
weapons. Sharon has called for a coalition to deal with Iran.
JERUSALEM - Israel will not mount a unilateral attack aimed at destroying Iran's nuclear capability, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said
Wednesday in a CNN-TV interview.
Sharon said he did not see "unilateral action" as an option. He said Israel did not need to lead the way on the Iran nuclear weapons issue, calling
for an international coalition to deal with it.
Iran is years away from possessing a nuclear weapon, Sharon said, but warned that Iran is only months away from solving "technical problems" toward
building a nuclear weapon.

Iran is "months away" from gaining nuclear weapons? Israel will not act unilaterally? Does this mean a pre-emptive strike is on the cards as far as
Iran is concerned? Who will do it with the Israelis? They didnt say they wouldnt attack, just that they wouldnt do it alone. Will America assist?
There has been absolutely no proof backing up the claims of Iran's nuclear weapons ambition. Atleast they tried to fake evidence surrounding
Saddam's WMDs. They havent even attempted such a lie this time, they've just expected people to trust them on this one. Given their previous record
I would not believe Bush or Blair if they said the sky was blue.
Boy who cried wolf, actual threat or a complete lie I believe no body has the right to strike out at a nation that has not attacked any one.
They have threatend Israel due to their mistreatment of Palestinians which is understandable IMHO. They have clearly stated however that they will not
attack Israel unless attacked themselves.
