Iranians react to threats over the country's nuclear programme as the U.S. and Israel meet to plot a course of action. One retired colonel said Iran should do something to prevent a potential attack. (SOUNDBITE)(Farsi) RETIRED COLONEL KAZEMI, SAYING: "(Iran's) officials should, with a united front, like-mindedness, rationality and by preventing mistakes, do something to not provide the enemy with an excuse (to attack Iran.)" Another Tehran resident said foreign threats will have little impact. (SOUNDBITE)(Farsi) UNNAMED TEHRAN RESIDENT, SAYING: "In my opinion with war and (different) methods of conflicts, they cannot cause any damage to Iran. Because they have no other techniques, they think they can do this with threats." During a White House meeting Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel had not made any decision to attack Iran's nuclear sites, but the leader did not back down from a military option. U.S. President Barack Obama is pressing Israel to allow international sanctions time to work. Iran says its nuclear programme will only be used for peaceful means. Lindsey Parietti, Reuters
