An Untimely Idea
In hindsight, maybe it was/is not such a bad idea, though untimely, given lack of US ammo and weapon systems.
I don't fully get the gist of this. What's the problem with Irân developing nuclear weapons? France, Rossiya, USA, Israel, Bhārat Gaṇarājya, Zhōngguó among others have all already developed them, so what vetoes Irân to obtain the same? Not acceptable to treat Irân as if it has less rights than other countries.
Especially after half a century of assassinations of scientists, soldiers and politicians and all kind of sabotage, Irân persists and insists and is now near to reach its nuclear goal, in the face of adversaries who in the past employed these same unethical tactics to cause a similar nuclear attempt by Irāq fold. So, respect to them.
I mean, I thought Irân were now in the good guys' camp, with their ongoing military collaborations with Rossiya and what not
A defense treaty between the US and Israel? That's a weird one. I agree that such a treaty would tie Israel's hands. Furthermore, I think the current government of Israel would be too smart to give up a first strike capability against a hostile foreign power such as Iran. If I'm not mistaken, Trajtenberg was part of the Center-Left Zionist Union so maybe he wants Israel's hands tied a bit to weaken Netanyahu.
Maybe they got the idea from Ukraine, which has recently been talking about 'an Israel model' :-)
