Italy FM: Attack against Iran could happen

(Continued)

In his address to the General Assembly on Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that Iran will have enough enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon by next summer.

He used props to make his point, drawing a red line across an illustration of a cartoon-like bomb that measured Iran's nuclear progress, marking what he said was a threshold Iran was approaching and which Israel could not tolerate — 90 percent of the way to the uranium enrichment needed to make an atomic bomb.

"Netanyahu's speech was presented very efficiently," Terzi said, "He clarified, graphically ... where the red line is."

Western diplomats claim Iran's oil exports have dropped by about 40 percent, or about 1 million barrels per day, since EU and U.S. sanctions were imposed. However, speaking in New York this week, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad insisted the impact on his country's economy was minimal.
