With the red-line point of no return rapidly approaching in Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons, former Clinton Administration crony Aaron David Miller spoke what is a typical misguided anti-Israel leftist mindset:
[“There’s a growing concern — more than a concern — that the Israelis, in order to protect themselves, might launch a strike without approval, warning or even foreknowledge,” Aaron David Miller, a former Mideast peace negotiator in the Clinton administration, said Friday.]
A concern that Israel might act "without approval" to prevent the Islamist Iranian regime from acquiring nuclear weapons.
That's the arrogant misguided mindset that permeates the thinking in the Obama/Biden/Clinton Administration, as well as the MSM.
Israel is a sovereign nation and does not need the approval of Obama, the dhimmi UN or others to act to defend itself.
In fact, when or if Israel takes military action against Iran's nuclear sites, it will be in keeping with America and the free-world's security interests as well.
Seeing as how the rest of the world, including the Islamist infiltrated NATO, is reluctant to take action.
[Panetta stressed Friday that the United States and Israel are in agreement on the need to do what is necessary to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power.]
Moshe Yaalon adequately summed up the current situation:
[Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s vice prime minister and its former top military commander, said Iran still doubts international resolve to take military action against it. ]
And for good reason.
While the U.S. and NATO were more than willing to use military force against the isolated Libyan regime of Qadaffi, they have only stood by and watched as Iran and it's terrorist proxy Hezbollah come to the aid of the Syrian regime.
[“The Iranians believe that the determination still isn’t there, both in regards to military action and in regards to sanctions,” Yaalon told the Herzliya conference..."]
And only a real military operation to take out Iran's nukes will convince them otherwise.

This is what the Obama Administration, the UN, and the rest of the world doesn't seem to grasp:
["However, Hizbullah, Syria, Iraq, and Iran will constitute a force that is militarily superior to Israel and will destroy it. They will wage a war and might even suffer hundreds of thousands of martyrs – because Israel might use the nuclear weapon in order to survive – but nevertheless, this war will put an end to Israel"]--Hezbollah terrorist commander.
