Setting Iran's nuclear plans back a few years to buy time for regime change or other unforeseen developments is beneficial in its own right, even if Israel cannot completely take out Iran's nuclear program, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said recently in private meetings, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

Netanyahu, in those meetings, has repeated a number of times that before Israel's 1981 attack on Iraq's nuclear reactor the Mossad and Military Intelligence were opposed because they thought that the best that could be done was to delay the program for a couple of years.  They also argued at the time, Netanyahu has said, that nothing would be solved in the long term, and that the operational risks were too high.
