Bolton: Israel Will Attack Iran before Inauguration

This neocon with close ties to Israel speaks openly...for Israel. After the election, before inauguration he asserts is their window of opportunity. This would force the next President's hand to control US foreign and war policy beyond the Bush regime. Israel knows how to control the US government and with the neoconservatives in the Pentagon, not just the administration, this is easily done.

Unlike the U.S. and Israel, Iran has never attacked or invaded another country. Only Israel is a credible nuclear threat, and it is they who will spark the war. The U.S. should back off and not get involved. Israel will reap what it sows and they will attempt to drag the U.S. into it despite the fact that the U.S. cannot make a case that it is fighting in self-defense. It is 'entangling alliances' that start world wars. If Israel nukes Iran that would be genocide.

Israel 'will attack Iran' before new US president sworn in, John Bolton predicts

John Bolton, the former American ambassador to the United Nations, has predicted that Israel could attack Iran after the November presidential election but before George W Bush's successor is sworn in.

The Arab world would be "pleased" by Israeli strikes against Iranian nuclear facilities, he said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.

"It [the reaction] will be positive privately. I think there'll be public denunciations but no action," he said.

Mr Bolton, an unflinching hawk who proposes military action to stop Iran developing nuclear weapons, bemoaned what he sees as a lack of will by the Bush administration to itself contemplate military strikes.

Israel, however, still had a determination to prevent a nuclear Iran, he argued. The "optimal window" for strikes would be between the November 4 election and the inauguration on January 20, 2009.

They're also obviously looking at the American election calendar
