Ex-CIA Director: Attack on Iran Seems Unavoidable

Speaking today on CNN’s “State of the Union,” former CIA Director Michael Hayden insisted that during his term in office the prospect of America attacking Iran was “way down the list,” but that now it seems that such an attack “seems inexorable.”

Hayden noted that no matter what the US does diplomatically, Iran has continued work on its civilian nuclear program. He predicted that Iran would continue to keep its work civilian, while noting that this could put Iran at the point where it would be “just below having an actual weapon.”

It's "unavoidable" because Israel wants it, and we all know that the US gov't kow-tows to Israel, and might even be considered a "proxy nation" for Israel. It's that bad.

That's the bottom line.
Israel is calling the shots.
