No it is the same as NK we DPRK ,the same mess as with little Un one person thinks this must be so , but that is just one person, and the same
situation, Iran =DPRK = IRAN from the link rt.com...
YM: This is the point. Iran wants
nuclear weapons for various reasons. They want to have hegemony in the region. Nuclear weapons in the hands of a country means national pride,
scientific infrastructure, technological development. But also it gives the regime guarantees of survival. We see the North Korean example. They have
developed nuclear weapons. They even tested it though unsuccessfully. But they know that if you have nuclear weapons no one is messing with you. This
is the precedent, and Iran wants to repeat it. Diplomacy has failed with North Korea and is also failing with Iran.
RT: Do you think Israel is trying to maneuver the US to attack Iran?
YM: I wouldn’t use the word maneuver. Israel wants America to attack Iran as a last resort. If diplomacy fails, and it has failed so far, if the
sanctions aren’t working. At the end of the day Iran wouldn’t cave in to the pressure and would assemble a bomb. In such a case Israel prefers the
US to do the job not only because it’s more convenient. Above all the US has the capability to inflict a major blow on Iran’s nuclear sites, while
Israel’s capabilities are very limited.
RT: What do you think was happening behind the scenes during President Obama’s recent visit to Israel? Who exactly was putting pressure on who
YM: I think Obama simply asked Israel not to do anything not coordinated with Washington. In other words, not to attack Iran unless it is coordinated
with the US.
RT: Could Israel carry out an attack without coordination?
YM: I don’t believe so. I wrote it in my book, I’ve been writing it in my newspaper articles. I don’t think Israel will attack Iran, because
Israel’s capabilities are limited. We can do it, but the damage we can inflict upon Iran and its nuclear sites is very limited. The big question is
the if the damage would be that low that Iran will be able to rebuild its nuclear sites in 12-18 months then I think it’s not worth taking the
no is it the risk of the US to take on DPRK when it is South Korea's, China's mess.
