    WASHINGTON — Israeli officials say they won't warn the U.S. if they decide to launch a pre-emptive strike against Iranian nuclear facilities, according to one U.S. intelligence official familiar with the discussions. The pronouncement, delivered in a series of private, top-level conversations, sets a tense tone ahead of meetings in the coming days at the White House and Capitol Hill.

    Israeli officials said that if they eventually decide a strike is necessary, they would keep the Americans in the dark to decrease the likelihood that the U.S. would be held responsible for failing to stop Israel's potential attack. The U.S. has been working with the Israelis for months to persuade them that an attack would be only a temporary setback to Iran's nuclear program.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak delivered the message to a series of top-level U.S. visitors to the country, including the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the White House national security adviser and the director of national intelligence, and top U.S. lawmakers, all trying to close the trust gap between Israel and the U.S. over how to deal with Iran's nuclear ambitions.


    Personally I think Israel should heed the warnings of the International community, their own Mossad heads as well as US warnings and not attack.

    Doing so is likely to have terrible repercussions that Israel cannot handle on its own and the US has no business allowing itself to get into another war just because Israel's Neo Cons and the LIKUD party wants war.

    As Israel's Mossad leader has said, the Iranians are not suicidal and they will not attack Israel with a Nuke even if they had one.

    Well He didn't, but the far right LIKUDS (the US equivalent to the NeoCons and TBaggers) are still in charge under Netanyahu and the likes of Lieberman, who think that a tough 'our way or the highway' stance is the way to run their country. You would think that such leaders would have learned from Bush failures where Iraq was concerned.
