Mideast Guns Silent After Cuss Fight Over Nuke

Israel "Too Weak" to attack Iran, says President Ahmadinejad

It's an old, old story, one everyone has seen on the
playground before they get out of grammar school. One of
them is scared and the other is glad of it.

That's the way it is in the war of words between Iran and
Israel over Iran's on-again, off-again nuclear power plant
at Bushehr, a sea coast city on the Persian Gulf shore.

More timid souls trembled with trepidation last week when the Bush Administration's former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton kibbitzed the cussing match by mentioning that Israel had only a few days left to attack before the Iranians began the process of loading fuel rods in the reactor. Headlines unfurled under many flags following the harsh remark.

But neither Israel, nor the U.S. attacked to prevent the
Iranians from using the reactor, which was begun in 1974,
halted in the Islamic Revolution of 1979, then resumed
construction in the 90's.

With its completion, the complex could theoretically produce fissile materials of weapons grade, something experts from the community of nuclear engineers in Russia and the U.S. have strongly discounted.

According to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Israel is "too weak" to attack the antagonistic and militant
Iranian nation.

It has been an open secret for several decades that the
nation of Israel has the capability of unleashing nuclear
warheads against its enemies.

After all, what good is a weapon if they don't know you've
got it and that you will use it?

"There are no logical reasons for the United States to carry
out such an act," Mr. Ahmadinejad said in an interview with
the Al-Jazeera Network.

In such a case, said Deputy Revolutionary Political Affairs
Brigadier General Yadollah Javani of the Iranian
Revolutionary Guards, "the Islamic Republic's hands and
advocates will be powerfully activated against the hegemonic
system and U.S. bases outside the region, according to a
report published today in the international Israeli
newspaper Haaretz.
