Deploying military force against Iranian nuclear sites too early or without the United States' approval could ultimately be detrimental in preventing an Iranian bomb, former military intelligence chief Amos Yadlin said Monday.

"If we get to the junction where we have to choose between a bomb and bombing, I am of the opinion that bombing is less of a strategic threat," Yadlin said at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism's World Summit. "But the question is, have we reached that junction or is there a third, less dangerous path?"

Although Israel has the military capability to hit Iranian nuclear sites, Yadlin said, bombing isn't the end of the story. "Tomorrow is another day," he emphasized.

Because a military strike would only set Iran back so far, Israel would need political, economic and military support from the world and the United States, in particular, for a decade to ensure that Iran would not develop a nuclear weapons capability. That, he said, "Israeli for certain cannot do alone."
