The NYT and the Obama administration is going all out to prevent an Israeli attack on Iran at least until after the elections but I think further.
Dennis B. Ross, says in an opinion piece published by the New York Times on Friday that by bolstering Israel’s military capabilities with “additional bunker-busting bombs, tankers for refueling aircraft and targeting information,” the US could allay the Jewish state’s impatience to attack the Islamic Republic and that the move would “extend the clock” on a possible military operation, thus allowing the White House to exhaust all diplomatic measures that could deem the military option unnecessary.
The problem is that no one has confidence in such “diplomatic measures”. For example. the US slowly escalates sanctions but immediately renders them harmless by exempting so many countries and companies from them. The US is not serious.
