Must read interview with Minister Moshe "Bogie" Ya'alon
17 June '12..
"Better to pay the heavy price of war than allow Iran nuclear weapons capability. It is crystal clear to me"
The hourglass of confrontation with Iran continues to diminish. Minister of Strategic Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister Moshe (Bogie) Ya'alon spares no words to explain how he knows the horrors of war and does not rush. Still, he takes very seriously the possibility of a regional conflagration, and within months - not years.

Minister of Strategic Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister Moshe (Bogie) Ya'alon gave an extensive and encompassing interview last week to Ari Shavit of Haaretz, for Haaretz's supplement, Sof HaShavua. While the full interview is available here in Hebrew, the English sits behind the Haaretz paywall. However, both Israel Matzav, and Dr. Aaron Lerner of IMRA have provided independently translated major excerpts into English that certainly deserve our attention, covering a very wide range of topics.
