Regular readers will know that I have been advocating the sustained bombing of Iranian nuclear facilities for some time, as I do not believe for one nano-second that the so-called "negotiations" favoured by much of our political elite today will achieve anything more than did those with North Korea! Today, I see that Rod Liddle, writing in the Sunday Times, thinks similarly when he explains that ..
Natanz seems an agreeable little town, perched nearly 5,000ft up in the majestic mountains of central Iran, full of dusty relics of Alexander the Great and black-clad peasants scurrying hither and thither. It is a shame, then, that we may soon be obliged to bomb it to smithereens. An even bigger shame, though, if we don’t.
Liddle argues that we should still TRY to negotiate even though it will most likely fail. He argues we should TRY sanctions, even though they will most likely fail. He suggests we should TRY bribing the Mullahs - knowing that will not deflect them in their quest for Nukes.
One way or another we will need to get to grips with Natanz quite soon. I may not want to live in a world with nuclear weapons — but I really don’t want to live in a world where Iran has nuclear weapons
I say, forget all about "quite soon" and send in the Planes right now. The Mullah's nuclear dreams will become all our nightmares if we don't waken up to the threat they pose.
