ANALYSIS/OPINION:

With Russia warning Israel and any other nations that might be considering military action against Iran, one must wonder why NATO continues to ignore issues that could lead to the demise of mankind.

It has become apparent that Iran’s leadership has no intention of ending its nuclear program. The sanctions imposed upon Iran and long-term diplomacy have had no effect on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s determination to develop and or acquire nuclear weapons.

As Mr. Ahmadinejad continues to prolong the stalemate in negotiations, Iran draws closer to possessing nuclear capability. It is with this threat and verbal threats made by Mr. Ahmadinejad to annihilate Israel and possibly mankind as a whole, that NATO should soon intervene by whatever means necessary. The consequences of not taking action could prove devastating for the world.

The Iranian dilemma is not an Israeli issue but rather an issue that belongs entirely to mankind. Israel battles only for the right to live and has always acted with integrity and honor. So, why cannot the powers that be of NATO do likewise?
