From The Jerusalem Post:
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told The Daily Beast that the U.S. has plans for a surgical military option against Iran, designed to deter Iran’s capability of producing nuclear weapons. Barak also suggested a need for harsher economic sanctions against Iran, but cautioned against success of that aim – given the Iranian support from Russia and China and their ability to block sanctions against Iran at the UN.
Barak indicated that he believed there would be no need for full- scale operation for the U.S. (like Iraq or Afghanistan) and that the U.S. action "prepared quite sophisticated, fine, extremely fine, scalpels. So it is not an issue of a major war or a failure to block Iran. You could under a certain situation, if worse comes to worst, end up with a surgical operation."
