Peres: Military option to Iran threat closer than diplomacy

President Shimon Peres on Friday said that he believes Israel is "closer to utilizing the military option in dealing with Iran's nuclear program than it is to finding a diplomatic solution to the threat."
In an interview with Channel 2, the president suggested that the media speculation about a potential attack on Iran may have some basis in truth. "Intelligence services in many countries are looking at the clock and warning their leaders that not much time remains. I do not know if these world leaders will act on this advice. "Peres said that Iran could be as close as six months from becoming nuclear-armed and it is Israel's role to warn the world of the danger. He suggested that the speculation about an attack on Iran may be a way of reminding the world of the Iranian threat.
