Cameron Undermines Israel's Position on Iran
10:05 AM, Mar 16, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER
Ynetnews.com reports that British PM David Cameron says the UK won't support an Israeli strike of Iran's nuclear at this time:
One hopes that Cameron is correct and that sanctions will work. And the good news is that "An international network in control of the world's largest financial messaging system announced on Thursday it intends to cut off Iranian banks targeted by European Union sanctions," as Haaretz reported. "The move is an unprecedented measure that will effectively prevent Iranian institutions from electronically transferring global funds."
But of course one fears these measures might not be enough to deter Iran from trying to get the bomb. It would be more constructive--in terms of a deterrent measure, which is after all the point of all these actions--if the British PM did not undermine Israel's position by trying to take the military option off the table as the Western world tries to move Iran in the right direction.
