This article in the Washington Times hinting that either Israel or the United States is planning to attack the Iranian nuclear weapons programs strikes me as deliberate leaks to scare the Iranians into yielding to diplomatic persuasion rather than risk attacks. I don't know if the emilitary analysts are correct that either Israel or the United States could accomplish such a mission, but I sure hope they are. We clearly want Iran to think that we could. However, I wouldn't trust any so-called diplomatic solution that we reached with the Iranian mullahs. An internal revolution in Iran would be so preferable. As Michael Ledeen would say, "Faster, please."
