The upcoming P5 talks will be a disaster for Netanyahu if
the US goes ahead with their stated intention of allowing Iran to
maintain their rights under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in
exchange for random unannounced inspections, something Iran has already
indicated they will accept.
This agreement will mean that the rest of
the P5 nations, as war-weary as the people of the United States, will
declare the Iranian crisis (as if there ever was one) over, with no more
sanctions required and certainly no justification for an attack.
Israeli bombing mission after such an agreement clearly shows Israel to
be an unjustified aggressor, especially in light of the history of the
Israeli attack against the power station at Osirak under the excuse that
Israel "knew" it contained a clandestine weapons factory (like the
Israelis have at Dimona).
Post-invasion examination of the ruins at
Osirak found no evidence of the weapons factory Israel cited as
justification for the bombing. Israel cannot survive a second baseless
attack politically once P5 have declared the crisis over. So if
Netanyahu is to have his war with Iran, he has to move before the P5
talks get underway May 23rd. Netanyahu may even order the attack on May
14th, coinciding with the anniversary of the founding of Israel, to
stifle internal criticism.
