Grows louder by the day.
Joined now by -- -- Fox -- secure national security -- -- good morning good rumor -- -- -- -- like every day as there is a new development in this is ratcheted up and we we spoke to Stuart -- before he says there's already a financial war really going on with Iran and you say there's a Covert war going on with Iran right now as well.
Doubt we -- -- war with Iran is a war is not a hot war but it's a war that's what SATA ties surveillance.
We've seen all these things happening here the Iranians -- -- hit squad to Washington to kill the Israeli and Saudi ambassador's.
Presumably Israeli somebody's killing.
Iranian scientists and now we've seen that the Iranians have sent hit squads.
In other parts of the country where there are softer targets it's easier to get them to get at Israeli diplomats out everybody's at a heightened state of alert.

I think that Israel's got to make a calculation and that's -- that's the real moving part of all of this will this Cold War will this Covert war.
Turn into a hot war Israel's got some really tough decisions to make the administration's -- -- them and said.
Let's sanctions have a little bit more time to see if they'll work that's why you've seen in the last three or four -- even.
Talk about really significant sanctions to basically -- Iran.
Out of the world financial system.
Israelis only have a matter of months had to make a decision because Iranians are moving -- nuclear weapons deep underground -- that happens.
Our Israel's gonna have a very difficult time with any kind of preemptive attack yet.
I mean that that's the -- concerned this underground facility where who you know god knows how far along they aren't down there.
And this very thick steel door that blocks all of that off and that's why the Israelis feel that there's only a short -- window.
Two to cut off the program before it's really too late right.

He's also said that two or three years after that Iran will have an inner cut -- ballistic missile capable of Karen nuclear weapon.

Israel's gonna happen to make a calculation.
The Iranians are going to be -- for the Iranians are trying to do now is to sort of forced the issue and the administration's.
And I have to make some decisions and now that they allowed.
