Israeli president dials back talk on Iran...a bit

A week after saying that the "possibility of a military attack against Iran is now closer to being applied than the application of a diplomatic option," Israel's president said other options need to be considered first.

In an interview airing Monday night on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight (9PET), Israeli President Shimon Peres said economic and political pressure would be preferable.

"I wouldn’t suggest to start immediately with a military operation," Peres told Piers Morgan.

Israel, Peres said, would prefer not to act alone.

    We need to support the Israel conquest of Iran. Let them have the opening shots, but let us be the guys to put boots on the ground. Lets orient Iranians to what an American boot feels like on their necks.
