Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton delivers a clear — and dire — message in a Newsmax magazine special report: Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons poses a grave and immediate threat to the United States and world peace.
And in his exclusive Newsmax article “Showdown,” Bolton declares: “Iran’s plan for a second Holocaust must be stopped.”
Bolton cites Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s assertion that Tehran could fabricate a nuclear weapon “within about a year” — and warns that many analysts believe it could come sooner.
Time is running out for both Israel and the United States.
Bolton argues that either or both must launch a pre-emptive strike to stop Tehran.
But such action will stretch Israel’s military capabilities to the hilt and might expose Americans to a new wave of terrorist attacks.
In addition to Bolton’s cogent analysis, Newsmax magazine’s “Showdown” package includes insight from many leading authorities:
- Fred Fleitz, a former CIA analyst and senior House Intelligence Committee staff member and current managing editor of LIGNET.com, offers an in-depth look at Iran’s uranium-enrichment and weapons-development programs.
- Famed Harvard law professor and trial attorney Alan Dershowitz writes that any attack by Iranian agents against American citizens or U.S.-based foreign embassies must be deemed an act of war by Iran against the United States.
- Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Judith Miller’sNewsmax interview with the Sultan of Oman, the discreet intermediary between Washington and Tehran.
