"More than once, defense officials in Jerusalem have said that Israel might attack Iran's nuclear facilities. In response, Iran's defense minister, Ali Shamkhani, warned that should Israel do so, his country would wipe out Israel." - Martin van Creveld IHT Friday, August 20, 2004

Chomsky quotes Martin van Creveld, an Israeli military historian, who writes,
"The world has witnessed how the United States attacked Iraq for, as it turned out, no reason at all. Had the Iranians not tried to build nuclear weapons, they would be crazy." Failed States p 73
