Former UN envoy John Bolton said Israel has just "eight days" to launch a military strike to halt Iran's nuclear ambitions before such an attack would be too risky.With Iran's first nuclear power reactor set to launch August 21, an attack beyond that date could release harmful radiation and affect Iranian civilians, Bolton said.

 

As Bolton told the Fox Business Network:

 

"Once that uranium, once those fuel rods are very close to the reactor, certainly once they're in the reactor, attacking it means a release of radiation, no question about it. So if Israel is going to do anything against Bushehr it has to move in the next eight days."

I don't understand the math involved here. I checked the article and it says it was first posted yesterday (8/17).

 

The statement made is "With Iran's first nuclear power reactor set to launch August 21, an attack beyond that date could release harmful radiation and affect Iranian civilians"

 

So they shouldn't do anything after August 21st. The article was written on the 17th. 21 - 17 = 4. How in the hell does this give them 8 days?
