Officials from the United States’ top leadership apparently did not object to a new assault plan on Iran. It was submitted to them by Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz last week.
The proposal comes as Democrat President Joe Biden fails to get Iran back into the unsuccessful nuclear agreement.
We face two urgent questions: Why has America failed to stop Iran’s nuclear-weapons program? And, with time running out, how does Washington avoid final defeat? Washington must decide who will win this contest of wills. Full analysis here: https://t.co/3CEJfwigjM

According to the Jerusalem Post, Benny Gantz, Defense Minister of Israel, informed American diplomats he set a timeline for the IDF to prepare for a strike on Iran.
A senior diplomatic source stated the next day Americans did not object to Israeli preparations when Gantz announced the schedule on Thursday. According to the source, there was “no veto” in the matter.
Biden Trying to Convince Israel Not to React
Gantz’s previously warned that Iran was stockpiling forces in the west of its nation to attack nations and militaries in the Middle East, particularly Israel.
He stated they are prepared and will do everything possible to protect their citizens and assets. To achieve hegemony, Iran intends to eradicate all remnants of freedom, human dignity, and peace across the Middle East.
The nuclear program serves to achieve the country’s hegemonic objectives. The New York Times said despite Biden’s failures in Afghanistan and lackluster reaction to Palestinian acts of terrorism against Israel earlier this year, he tried to reassure Israel the US was considering military options.

According to the New York Times, Biden’s emphasis on military options and sanctions was intended to signal Tehran that the United States was growing impatient with Iran’s stalling in the nuclear discussions in Vienna.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated last week the new Iranian leadership “does not appear serious” about returning to the 2015 nuclear deal.
Iran Doing Whatever It Pleases
The more complex approach was also meant to soothe furious Israeli authorities.
Israeli officials privately claim the Iranians are developing their nuclear program. They’re doing this while banking the US, eager to reduce American obligations in the Middle East, will not forsake the Vienna negotiations for more strong action.
In September, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett warned that Israel would take preemptive measures against Iran if they obtained a nuclear weapon.
He claimed Iran’s nuclear program is at a crossroads. Every single red line has been crossed. Despite repeated requests, inspections were not conducted.
IAEA safeguard treaties are currently being violated by Iran. He said they intimidate inspectors and disrupt investigations…and get away with it. They refine uranium to 60%, which is just one step away from weapons-grade material, and also get away with it.
In addition, Bennett said words do not stop nuclear material from whirling. Some people in the world appear to accept Iran’s pursuit of atomic weapons as inevitable, or they’re just sick of hearing about it.
Israel, he argued, does not enjoy that luxury; they never sleep, but they won’t get tired. Israel will not allow Iran to have nukes.
