Rattling the cage

Still want to bomb Iran?

If ever the term “game-changer” could be applied without fear of exaggeration, it could be applied to Meir Dagan’s statement a week ago, on his last day as Mossad chief, that Iran will not have nuclear weapons before 2015. And that’s the worst-case scenario, he told reporters and Knesset members – that’s if Israel, the US and the rest of the world suddenly take the pressure off and let Iran go on its merry way to the bomb. If, on the other hand, the campaign of covert operations – i.e. sabotage and assassination – and sanctions continue, then, Dagan said, Iran will be unable to go nuclear for many years beyond 2015.
