Barak: Facing a nuclear Iran would be more costly than thwarting it

Israel’s Defense Minister Ehud Barak stressed in a lecture that a nuclear-armed Iran would pose a greater danger and be costlier in life than action for pre-empting it. He hinted that if sanctions fail, Israel may decide to attack Iran when he spoke of “tough and crucial decisions” facing Israel on its security. Barak also commented that the lesson Israel has drawn from the Syrian crisis is that in a security crunch it can only rely on itself.
