(JNS.org) Israel must be prepared to act alone in the face of the Iranian nuclear threat, Maj. Gen. (res.) Yaakov Amidror, an adviser to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the former head of the Israeli National Security Council, said Sunday at the annual Herzliya Conference.

"While the U.S. is an irreplaceable strategic ally, we need to be ready to do things on our own," Amidror said, according to Israel Hayom.

In response, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro said the U.S. "will use military force if necessary."

"Not every problem results in military action," he said.

Yeah, Amidror is right. Israel SHOULD go alone and after Iran 'the attacked' will tune IDF's behind with a major response, Netanyahu will finally learn his place and maybe, just maybe will retreat behind those 1967 lines so that we can finally have peace in the Orient. Arrogance cost dearly and if Amidror would half the brain Tzipi Livni has he should pray by thanking the All Mighty God for the fact that Iran doesn't feel like attacking Israel 'by surprise' like the PM wants to do it.
