Iran nears nuclear ‘point of no return’

`The Israeli defence minister, Shaul Mofaz, warned yesterday that Iran will reach “the point of no return” within the next 12 months in its covert attempt to secure a nuclear weapons capability.

Tehran denies pursuing a nuclear weapons programme.

Speaking in London before a meeting today with Tony Blair, Lieutenant General Mofaz said Iran was the main long-term threat to the world and stressed that it will not be permitted to build a nuclear bomb. “None of the western countries can live with Iran having a nuclear capability,” he told reporters.’

Nothing like a bit of hypocrisy. 🙂
