Credible Military Threat Needed Against Iran: Netanyahu
By Calev Ben-David - Feb 18, 2013 4:12 AM ET
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said a “credible military threat” is needed to stop Iran’s atomic program, the risk it poses to the flow of Middle East oil and what he called a global wave of Iran-led terrorism.
“The sanctions alone won’t stop Iran’s nuclear program,” Netanyahu said at a conference in Jerusalem today. “They have to be coupled with a robust, credible military threat.” Iran will be at the top of President Barack Obama’s agenda next month when he visits Israel and the Palestinian territories, followed by violence in Syria, Netanyahu said.
Iran faces sanctions including a European Union ban on oil purchases and new U.S. measures this month that restrict the Persian Gulf country’s access to cash from oil exports.

5. We could bomb them to kingdom come tomorrow, Iran knows that.
We have a military presence surrounding Iran. What do we need to make the threat more credible? More bluster? And maybe Iran is acting out of feeling...threatened.
