This is coolbert:
From the DEBKAfile Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak in the news.
1. Stern and harsh words from Barak. The Iranian again as the Israeli has stated over and over WILL NOT EVER BE ALLOWED TO POSSESS NUCLEAR WEAPONS!!
"March 3, 2013 Briefs":
"Barak: Israel will never let Iran develop a nuclear weapon"
"Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told thousands of delegates at the opening of the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) Sunday: 'It is Iran's pursuit of a nuclear capability which is the greatest challenge facing Israel, the region and the world today,' He added: 'Frankly, while exhausting all diplomatic means is understandable, I do not believe it will lead to… the ayatollahs giving up their nuclear status. Therefore, all options must remain on the table because Israel will never allow them to develop a nuclear weapon.' On another issue, Barak said he did not believe Israel would ever achieve a comprehensive and final peace with the Palestinians."
AND Barak also pessimistic that twenty years after Oslo, a lasting peace "comprehensive and final" ALSO will NEVER be achieved with the Palestinian.
2. Washington confirms to Barak that Hezbollah has indeed acquired and HAS IN THEIR STOCKPILE CHEMICAL MUNITIONS!!
"Washington: Hizballah has got hold of chemical weapons"
"When Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak met US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel at the Pentagon Tuesday, March 5, he heard for the first time in years American criticism of the Israeli army for under-reacting . . . Barak received official US confirmation that chemical weapons had reached Hizballah."
Terrorists or terrorist groups generally seen in most cases to be a nuisance rather than an existential threat. UNLESS THOSE PERSONS OR GROUPS ACQUIRE AND HAVE IN THEIR POSSESSION FOR USE WEAPONS OR MASS DESTRUCTION [WMD] CHEMICAL WEAPONRY CLASSIFIED AS WMD!!
You take it from there.
