Israel's "bomb Iran fever" is based on lies and what if's. ++ Iran does not even have nuclear weapons and has offered concessions beyond its obligations under the NPT, but still Israel is foolishly convinced that it is a threat. ++ In part, it is a public relations stunt the Israeli government plays off of. ++ Israel would not attack Iran without consent from Washington and the others anyway. ++ The US has also had Iran fever for years. ++ Iran's "nuclear weapon program" gives the US an excuse to want to control this vital, oil-rich, and strategic country in Eurasia.
