Nuclear weapons are so easy to make that no determined nation can be forcibly prevented from making them short of regime change imposed by invasion and military occupation. That, apparently, is one of the options the Pentagon still has on the table for dealing with Iran, and the only one that would work.
Short of that, Israel may have to learn to live with the threat of nuclear annihilation by Iran, just as every Middle East nation has had to live with the threat of nuclear annihilation by Israel for the past four decades. It is hard to imagine a bombing campaign that would eliminate Iran’s ability to produce nuclear weapons. If Israel bombs Iran it will be merely an attempt to drag the U.S. into an all-out war with Iran.
