Olmert: Iran "Months" Away From Bomb, US Proposes Missle Shield For Europe

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is convinced that Iran is "months, not years" away from being able to produce nuclear weapons. Olmert told CNN it's unlikely his nation would act unilaterally to prevent Iran from reaching nuclear solvency, however. Olmert is in Washington for his first state visit with President Bush and will most likely move to persuade Western leaders toward containment and isolation via sanctions against Tehran.

In related news, the Bush Administration is moving to develop an antiballistic missle system to thwart possible Iranian attacks against the United States and Europe. Such a system will only make us safe if it works and when we've succeeded in destroying global terrorism and its root causes.
