Ex-IDF chief: Israel has military option against Iran

Former Israel Defense Forces chief of staff Moshe Ya'alon said Thursday that Israel definitely has a military option to counter the Iranian nuclear threat, and that this fact must be taken into consideration.

Former Israel Air Force commander Major General (Res.) Eitan Ben-Eliyahu said Friday that Ya'alon's comments could lead other countries to feel that if Israel is capable of halting Iran, they no have no responsibility for doing so.

"If we emphasize too much, express ourselves too much, it frees the international community ," he told Israel Radio. "Our major achievement, from a military perspective and from a political perspective, is that an international coalition has been created that understands ... that Iran's nuclear development must be stopped."

Israel tough talking!!!
