10 Talkbacks for this article
1. what's the point of the article?
Iran has violated NPT. Iran has declared its intent to get nuclear weapons. Iran has invested billions in centrifuges, plutonium reactors, and fast triggers all three only useful for nuclear weapons. Obama says that he is negotiating with Iran to prevent Iran getting nukes. What exactly is Druckman saying here? That everyone is wrong, Iran doesn't want nukes and this is all some misunderstanding?
2. Chicken Little Netanyahu
naro ,   nyc   (03.04.15)
The megalomaniac gave a USELESS speech while alienating half of America from Israel. The Republicans are utterly powerless to help Israel. He is completely unstable, and needs to be retired.
3. Is it a bad thing that Iran hasn't gone nuclear yet?
Matt C ,   Canada   (03.04.15)
While it is true that Iran has taken much longer to go nuclear than most other states which have sought the same thing (despite Iran making its intentions clear years ago), this comes down mainly to Israel's success in continually undermining Iran's program, with measures both covert and overt. The relative success of these measures should not be used as a kind of "proof" that Iran's threats are not real or urgent. I worry that this article is misleading in such a way that it not only attacks Netanyahu but that it also damages the policies of successive Israeli governments in opposing Iran's nuclear ambitions.
4. Noah in Scriptures warned of a danger for 120 years!
Rivkah   (03.04.15)
That did not change the danger or avert it. Nearly 7 billion people living on earth at the time of Noah's Flood, the Great Deluge, perished while only EIGHT LIVED. The eight who lived were Noah and his wife and their three sons and the sons' wives who were wise to heed the warning from HaShem while no one else did. The danger is similar in this era since Iran plans to nuke not only Israel but Saudi Arabia and the USA. When that happens, HaShem will be so enraged that He allows famine and great hale and drought and wars and diseases and wild animal attacks and fires to cause 2/3 of the world's population to perish before the coming of the Jewish Messiah Yeshua in glory. Was the world thankful for Noah's message of impending doom? NOOOO! The world laughed at Noah and mocked him to scorn.

Netanyahu in 1993: Iran will have bomb by 1999 Comment - And how many Years Has Israeli Sabotage prevented such an outcome?. Face the whole truth !. Arn.Sweden.

An extremely rare disease affecting few - the most notable sufferer Benjamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu is a far greater danger to the survival of Israel than the Mullahs of Tehran. The time has come to stop ruling us by terror. As a school report might say - Benjamin is not using his potential but rather being rather disruptive and destructive in class.
7. The point is
Holy warrior ,   Uk   (03.04.15)
satanyahoo has been lying for over 2 decades.
8. So what!
Fred Flintsone ,   USA   (03.04.15)
The Netanyahu haters miss the point, IRan and nukes don't mix, just like north Korea and nukes don't mix. The question is what year, month, day and hour Iran gets nukes, the question is what happens if we let them have them. By all accounts, they are very close and this agreement won't prevent it. However, I hope BB has a plan to destroy their nuke sites, because we all know no one is going to do anything. Like Iraq and Syria, Israel will have to act alone, again.
9. Totally agree with #3, #5.
Beary White ,   Norway   (03.04.15)
And every human with IQ above 107 (!) should be able to use their brain-capacity / memory and draw conclusion WHY Iran has not got "the bomb" yet...
10. You're mistaken
Israeli ,   Givataim   (03.05.15)
- Iran has not violated the NPT, except perhaps in not allowing sufficient scrutiny of its nuclear facilities which were eventually inspected. - It's declared it does _not_ intend to develop a nuclear weapon. Now, granted, that's a questionable declaration, but currently it has no nuclear weapons program. Unlike, say, Israel, the US, Pakistan... - "Everyone" thought Iraq had chemical weapons in 2003 and it didn't.
