Israel´s Full Court Press

There was some argument that while the Neocons wanted the US to attack Iraq, Israel only came on board reluctantly.

This argument cannot be made with regard to Iran.

(CBS) Joint Chiefs Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen leaves Tuesday night on an overseas trip that will take him to Israel, reports CBS News national security correspondent David Martin. The trip has been scheduled for some time but U.S. officials say it comes just as the Israelis are mounting a full court press to get the Bush administration to strike Iran's nuclear complex.

CBS consultant Michael Oren says Israel doesn't want to wait for a new administration.

"The Israelis have been assured by the Bush administration that the Bush administration will not allow Iran to nuclearize," Oren said. "Israelis are uncertain about what would be the policies of the next administration vis-à-vis Iran."

Note that whenever oil prices rise, or the stock market falls, on news of potential conflict with Iran, people's pensions and college funds are affected, not to mention their ability to buy food and fuel.

Israel's actions, and the actions of its supporters, affect you.
