    I don't know how would they act in case they have to go solo. But the possibility is still there.

    My guess is that they go in there and actually find nuclear weapons then it is a whole new ball game where everyone joins the party against Iran.

    It's just a matter of time.

    I also have a sneaking suspicion if Israel goes solo it will not be without Obama knowing about it.

    No! I think Hamas and Hezbollah grievances are over land not Iranian interests. They aren't making war against us nor are they the ones destablizing other countries. This notion that our interests are Israel's interest is not something I buy. I would prefer we do what we can to prevent conflict but Iran conquering Israel or Israel conquering Iran are equal outcomes in my opinion. There are pluses and minuses either way as long as American's aren't killing people or being killed for the interest of other parties.

    My sense is that Israel has so much mistrust of this President and his administration they would be very careful what they say to him. They may tell the U.S. about the mission once the planes have taken off to avoid any problems if they are flying over Iraq.

    Also wonder if Israel has to do this alone would they consider tactical nuclear weapons.

Here's an idea maybe we should focus on our infrastructure and trade agreements instead of trying to maintain economic advantage through military force.
    Have you ever heard of Hezbollah? Hamas?

    They had to deal with Russia and China in 67 and 73. Didn't seem to slow them down, then. I must admit, though, the IDF is a totally different army than it was in 73 and prior.

    Bar Lev and Dayan aren't here anymore; hopefully there is some unknown, untested IDF general that will fill the shoes.

    Where did I hear this type of talk before. Oh yes, it was in Europe talking about Hitler. Who cares if he knocks over a few countries or kiils some Jews, as long as leaves us alone. How did that work out?

    Not sure why anyone who does care about the potential of another holocaust would vote with the progressive view on this. Whether it is in the ME, Africa or anywhere.
