So now the U.S. advises Iran NoT developing nuclear weapons? Will Israel 'manufacture" other attacks?

Panetta: Iran is Not Developing Nuclear Weapons

Though Iran is enriching uranium, Panetta explained, they have not demonstrated any intention of building a bomb

by John Glaser, February 16, 2012

|Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Thursday that Iran is enriching uranium in a peaceful nuclear program but that Tehran has not decided to develop an atomic bomb.

Top U.S. military and intelligence officials gave separate testimonies in congressional hearings on Thursday regarding Iran, and while they all reiterated the consensus that Iran’s nuclear program is purely civilian in nature, they also kept up the tough talk, hoping to satisfy hawks eager to preemptively strike Iran.

Panetta explained emphatically that any move from Iran to develop nuclear weapons is a “red line” for the U.S. ”We will not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon,” he said. “That is the red line that would concern us and that would ensure that the international community, hopefully together, would respond.

Why no headlines re this revelation which are comparataive to Israel's 'blaming Iran for recent attacks"??

Update:

No skipping. ANymore that is, than Netanyahu skipping his part in the recent attacks which he is trying to lay as a basis for attack. In all seriousness, Netanyahu is a 'tool' also. Always keeping something going. Always.

    Funny how you skipped the parts..

    - He said they're laying the groundwork for nuclear weapons

    - He said aspects of their program have absolutely no civilian purpose

    - He said they could potentially have a bomb within a year

    Why would you choose to skip those parts.. I wonder.

    there will be no desire. As you pronounced: Israel will take concerns into their very own palms. Their air stress some distance surpasses something that Iran has obtainable. they'll in basic terms bomb any nuclear facility from the air with U.S.-provided technologies. If Iran tries to retaliate - nicely, they don't border. Israel. Air assaults would be hastily defeated by utilising Israeli Air stress. Naval assaults likewise would be defeated by utilising Israeli Air stress. Frankly: the only think of Israel has to stress approximately from Iran is rocket assaults...and that i don't think of they could bypass that some distance. the possibility of by probability magnificent Jordan is incredibly important, and missile assaults could in basic terms supply Israel excuse to bomb - not basically a nuclear facility, yet each thing in sight.
