Warmongering Netanyahu pushing for war with Iran again...

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has spoken of the merits of pre-emptive strikes in what has been seen as a warning to Iran after talks on its nuclear programme. 

Speaking at an event to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War, Netanyahu told law makers there are situations when a strike is justified. He said lessons had been learned since the war, which broke out when forces led by Syria and Egypt invaded Israeli land in 1973. Thousands were killed during the 19 day conflict.

Netanyahu told the Knesset:
 'The enemy can surprise us. Israel will not fall asleep on its watch again', according to the Times of Israel.
He said Israel would never again 'underestimate an enemy' or ignore warning signs.

Speaking openly about the option of a pre-emptive strike, he said: 
'But there are situations in which paying heed to the international price of such a step is outweighed by the price in blood we will pay if we absorb a strategic strike that will demand a response later on, and perhaps too late.'
