WASHINGTON: Israel will strike Iran’s nuclear facilities in the next “month or two or three,” an Israeli official has been quoted here as saying.
The unnamed official told Arnaud de Borchgrave, editor-in-chief of the United Press International (UPI), at the recently held national day reception at the Israeli Embassy that he believed Israel would strike Iran first in the next two or three months and that fighter bombers would not be involved as they had been to take out Iraq’s Osirak nuclear reactor before it went critical in 1981. For Osirak, Israel had used 14 F-15s and F-16s. This time, the Israeli said, it would be missiles. Asked if Israel would employ Cruise missiles, he replied, “with a gesture of his hand that went up and down again”, which meant that it would be the weapon of choice.
Asked if tunnel entrances to widely scattered Iranian nuclear facilities would be targeted, he responded that Israel had its own geo-stationary spy-in-the-sky satellite taking constant pictures of Iran with a resolution down to 70 centimetres. “We know far more than anyone realises,” he added.

Hey North Korea openly stated and threatened to use their verified nuclear weapons a few years ago. OMG! The south and Japan are not burning in a sea of fire.... But I bet you wish they were signs Would give you a reason to go to war I am sure.
Fact of the matter is that Nuclear weapons are merely a tool for a nation to use in negotiations. It is a way to not be bullied militarily, although It does not help too much against economic attacks. Nobody wants to see expensive Carrier Groups and/or whole infantry divisions go up in flames.
