Israel will not attack first

The ex-CIA officers Phil Giraldi and Larry Johnson; W. Patrick Lang from U.S. Military Intelligence and the U.S. Army Special Forces; Ray McGovern, from Naval Intelligence and the CIA; and other former senior officers with many years of service, are right to warn Obama that the Israeli prime minister has plans for a surprise attack with the idea of forcing the United States into the war on Iran.But with Resolution 1929 of the United Nations Security Council, Israel succeeded in securing a commitment from United States to be the first to attack.

After that, Netanyahu would not dare to be the first to do so, given that an action of this kind would bring him face to face with all the nuclear powers and he is not a fool.

Among themselves, all Iran’s enemies have created an absurd situation. Obama would be left with no alternative other than to order the death of hundreds of millions of innocent people, and the crews of his warships in the vicinity of Iran would be the first to die, and he is not a murderer.

That is what I think without fear of being mistaken.

The worst that could happen is for somebody to commit a fatal error that would precipitate events before the expiry of the Security Council time period for inspecting the first Iranian merchant ship.

But there is no reason to be so pessimistic.
