From Shiloh, Israel, Egyptian Tanks and Iran's Nuclear Development, Is The World Out of Control?

I'm sure that you've all heard that saying that "the road to hell is paved with good intentions."

I have no doubt that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had only the best of intentions when he permitted Egypt to bring tanks to the Sinai to police the violence there.  But good intentions are like quicksand.  It's so easy to get sucked in and lose control.

Mel Brooks gets it right in Blazing Saddles that the world has different priorities and wouldn't bother making any effort to save us.  And in the real world, there isn't humorous nor an easy solution on how to get out of the mess safely.

I don't know where Breitbart gets its information that Israel is set to bomb Iran before the United States Elections.
Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is determined to strike Iran before the 2012 election. A report from Israel’s Channel 10 news claims that since the harsher international sanctions have yielded nothing from Iran, the time to act cannot be delayed. There was talk that Netanyahu would meet with Barack Obama after the late September UN General Assembly meeting in New York, but that meeting seems to have been scuttled. 

I just can't believe it.  Netanyahu can't be all that stupid as to publicize an attack date.  As I've written on too many occasions, it really is too late for the type of attack to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities Israel is capable of.  The development of nuclear weapons in Iran has gone on much too long.  It is too large and most probably divided in a number of locations. 

It can be compared to a person who had delayed the removal of a cancerous mole until the cancer has spread throughout his body.  At that point removing the mole won't save his life.  It's no longer relevant, no longer an effective life-saving treatment.

The nuclear development in Iran has been going on for at least ten years.
Iranian exiles claim Tehran has built a vast uranium enrichment plant.
Satellite pictures confirm the development of a nuclear reactor at Bushehr on the Gulf coast of Iran. The US accuses Tehran of pursuing of weapons of mass destruction.
Iran agrees to stop producing enriched uranium – required for nuclear weapons - but fails to provide any evidence that it has done so.
Iran agrees to halt all enrichment activities during talks with EU states, but says it will resume enrichment in the future.
Iran announces plans to resume enrichment.
Hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad takes over as Iranian president, prompting a deterioration of relations with the west.
The International Atomic Energy Agency says Iran has resumed uranium conversion.

And it has continued...

This is an international problem, not an Israeli problem!
