The U.S. and Israel have long presented their option to attack Iran as one among many policy choices to halt Tehran’s nuclear weapons program. The fact that their own intelligence concludes such a program doesn’t exist actually effects the legitimacy of a military strike, though. As it turns out, the U.S. and Israel don’t have that option – at least as far as international law is concerned. Many an anti-Western dictator has been declared wanted and tried by international criminal courts for violating international law, while the U.S. and Israel publicly contemplate and threaten such criminality with impunity.
