The race is time Iran working towards building nuclear weapons and Israel hoping to stop them before it's too late.
Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu urging the world to draw a clear red line to stop Iran in its tracks but so far President Obama has resisted.
But is using sanctions to try to pressure Iran.
So now the question.
Will President Obama changed his tactics in his second term what's the relationship with newsroom -- and -- Fractured.
Not nearly stress with this used to -- President Obama says the right things for his actions speak louder than his words when you -- Israel under the bus for talking about 67 borders.
You're empowering the Palestinians to withdraw from negotiations until you get 67 borders.
When you talk about Israeli settlements and you don't talk about rockets coming from Gaza and Israel.
You send the wrong message when you leak stories to the New York Times that Israel may attack Iran.
In -- she think that Israel's a bigger problem -- the Iranians.
So if our political leader in Iran.
Excuse me and Israel I'd be worried about our race a 1001 -- in Iran I'd be thinking the Americans talk a lot but don't do much.
I don't want anymore wars I don't want -- -- -- and let me tell you what happens if they get a nuclear weapon every Sunni Arab state.
He's gonna want a counterbalance to there Iranian nuclear weapons.
And you have weapons all over the mideast in my biggest -- is that the Iranian tell us we'll share that nuclear capability with some terrorist group.
The reason thousands Americans have -- in the war on terror and not millions.
They can't get the weapons to kill -- of us if the Iranians have to -- -- nuclear weapon it will not be long before that technologies -- -- of the terrorist organization.
Best assessment of how you think he and Ronnie and his view.
Americans and the United States government.
Well I think they see essentially a clear path to achieving their long -- objective of getting deliverable nuclear weapons I think obviously the sanctions.
Are causing them some economic pain they'd like to finding a way to get rid of them.
But they have no fear that the United States ultimately will use military force against them.
So the only cloud on their horizon is what Israel might do.
And absent an Israeli attack the most likely outcome at this point is that Iran gets nuclear weapons and very very soon.
I want that description description surge suggests that America has looked on -- -- feckless and week by the running -- and have several of no moment.
In terms of whether or not did they do go after nuclear weapon.
And they see -- Sony -- -- minutes -- an economic hardship in the short run.
Well I think they've concluded that despite president Obama's rhetoric he's not really serious when he says all options are on the table and I think they've also.
Discerned that the real administration policy despite its denials.
Is that they think they can contain and deter a nuclear Iran.
I think that's a delusional policy.
And I think in any event it doesn't stop with -- -- I think Saudi Arabia Egypt Turkey and perhaps others get nuclear weapons as well but from Iran's point of view.
They do not see the United States as an obstacle.
Is there any indication.
That the sanctions.
Are working and by working I don't mean making it difficult for the Iranian people to live -- -- site.
I -- working in terms of putting the brakes on their nuclear weapons program.
No there's no evidence that it is putting a brake on the nuclear weapons program.
-- its evidence that they were looking in the sense.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Did it in the end might be a good thing to consider that -- negotiations.
But it's a veteran of some of these negotiations.
On other matters of human -- -- -- Month to an end to negotiations collective.
-- has to know how to bring it to the conclusion.
Because of the life amendment -- -- on into executed.
And to -- and -- -- Conviction that the outcome is over -- kept inside but a little bit under the age.
It is not yet affected -- it saying that it understood that nuclear program.
Our relationship but Israel is one.
Tenuous you know this president I again I think he has made it very clear -- said he wanted to put distance -- space between the United States and Israel.
Now facing the threat of center -- and nuclear weapon.
Very different intelligence assessments on the part of the United States and Israel about what the timing is what that means.
-- point out that the Israelis.
If you look back at history have more often been right in their intelligence assessments.
Can't I mentioned the case of the north Koreans building the reactor in the Syrian desert Israelis found that not us.
Clearly face a very direct threat they're very close threat from in Iran in nuclear weapon that.
None of us can afford to have a nuclear armed Iran what would you do.
If you were president and that's.
The president had to consider many.
Different attitude that would that would probably do.
-- to -- to put forward.
Of what we understand -- end.
Of it and in minute that it nuclear capability.
Because -- statement -- that we've made up enough.
Has been very.
Then -- -- some people today.
We had opposed to -- -- And it's a video posted nuclear military capability.
-- -- about the enrichment program it is shades of meaning.
We -- -- -- a -- That might imply that unit in different to the creation offensive movement -- -- But if you admit defensive -- you view it and -- -- -- -- so much available.
Been able to see -- put that it didn't publish.
That predicted that it but it trendy fifteen.
Could have -- tend to pick up to seven nuclear weapon.
That city entity that has happened to that to happen.
We've been given a different group.
So I put.
-- staff -- that would have put it.
-- come -- visited technically adequate proposal.
That prevents that from happening.
And then to be vigilant can incorporate that and do.
As a tourist have been to some negotiation.
But it couldn't have -- if that failed.
We have two choices.
-- -- to step up depression.
All of them -- -- it.
And that would -- then and -- sort of stepping up depression.
