Charles Krauthammer says Israel ‘will strike’ Iran to ‘prevent a second holocaust’. According to the Daily Caller, Washington Post columnist and Fox news analyst Charles Krauthammer doubled-down on an assertion he made about the inevitability of an Israeli strike on Iran to limit their nuclear capabilities. Krauthammer said, “Our own secretary of Defense has said it’s highly likely and he gave a timeframe — April, May, June, which means the Israelis think that the moment, the zone of immunity where they can no longer attack successfully is approaching... I think Israel will strike because it cannot live under the threat of annihilation from Iran." He also stated that “I cannot imagine the Israelis are going to allow Iran to go nuclear and to hold the Da-ma-klez sword over 6 million Jews all over again. Israel was established to prevent a second holocaust, not to invite one.”

U.S. Navy says it can prevent Iran from blocking the Strait of Hormuz. According to Reuters, the commander of U.S. naval forces in the Gulf said that Iran has built up its naval forces in the Gulf and prepared boats that could be used in suicide attacks, but the U.S. Navy can prevent it from blocking the Strait of Hormuz. Vice Admiral Mark Fox said the Iranians "have increased the number of submarines ... they increased the number of fast attack craft...Some of the small boats have been outfitted with a large warhead that could be used as a suicide explosive device. The Iranians have a large mine inventory." Iran has made a series of threats in recent weeks to disrupt shipping in the Gulf or strike U.S. forces in retaliation if its oil trade is shut down by sanctions, or if its disputed nuclear program comes under attack.
