Israel Beats Drum Louder: 'Won't Wait Until It's Too Late' to Attack Iran

'Our clocks are ticking' faster than the US, says Israeli PM

Revamping his threat to attack Iran over a supposed nuclear weapons program, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday that he is still considering a strike in the not too distant future, with or without the U.S.'s consent, stating: "I won't wait until it's too late."

"Our clocks are ticking at a different pace. We're closer than the United States. We're more vulnerable. And therefore, we'll have to address this question of how to stop Iran, perhaps before the United States does," he said.

Tehran has consistently insisted that its nuclear program is solely for energy purposes. Israel has continually failed to prove otherwise.

The Obama administration has thus far resisted Netanyahu's temptation, citing inconclusive evidence, despite attempts by Congress and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) to push the U.S. towards all-out war.

The Obama administration has, however, alongside its European allies, continued to impose devastating sanctions on the country, which have essentially crippled Iran's economy and created an ongoing health crisis.

"They're edging up to the red line. They haven't crossed it yet," Netanyahu said in reference to his now infamous red-line graph. He, however, failed once again to provide his audience with new evidence.
