English term or phrase:Nuclear Vigilantes
文章的大致内容是说由于国际执行机制的不力，有些国家不得不自己主动使用武力攻击其他国家的核设施。下面是文章中的一个句子： But diplomacy takes time – a lot of time – and there is no guarantee that it will succeed. For states that believe that time will merely enhance a lethal adversary’s ability to get the Bomb – Israel’s concern about Iran today – only vigilantism remains。
Explanation: Vigilant means "One who takes or advocates the taking of law enforcement into one's own hands".In this case,vigilante refers to countries such as Israel who will protect itself from Iran's nuclear ambition by attacking Iranian nuclear facilities.
