    I don't think it would be nuclear, but it would be a strategic strike to destroy the facilities. However, I don't think Israel would do that to Iran.

    Israel stated they would launch a preemptive nuclear strike.
    But okay, assuming it is a standard missile strike, do you truly believe that Iran will just roll over and take it?

    I think they meant if Iran had nuclear weapons and they felt Iran was going to launch nuclear weapons against them.

    Honestly I don't know. I know the U.S. response to something like that and it would be war. With many countries it would be the same, so I am leaning towards an all out conflict.

    And in that afore mentioned war, who would you predict to be the victor?

    I honestly again don't know. It depends on who the players are. It could be as simple as an Iranian defeat where they do nothing to an all out almost world war.

    Nobody in the middle east wants Iran to have nuclear weapons. Publicly an attack on Iran would be condemned. In private, it would be praised.

    Again, it depends, if it is Isreal doing all the work fine.

    However, I don't think the middle east will take the U.S. occupying Iran as well as Iraq. I don't think it will happen in which case it could mean WWIII.

    Do you have a cite for this? Israel has never stated what manner of strike package would be employed.

    Iran is in a deep recession and cannot use oil as a weapon. The Iranian navy is worthless beyond the Persian Gulf. The Iranian air force lacks the necessary infrastructure, weapons platforms, and combat-seasoned pilots to threaten Israel. Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps divisions would never survive an arduous and exposed journey across the deserts of Iraq and Jordan. Per violent retaliation, Iran has only three viable avenues.

    (1. Shahab missiles armed with either conventional or C/B warheads)
    Israel utilizes both the Arrow and Patriot anti-missile systems. Israel is also ringed with the newest and most sophisticated X-band radar detectors. Israel also has Jericho ICBMs which can accomodate any warhead and easily reach any target in Iran. Israeli subs have cruise missile (SLCM) capability.

    (2. Tactical missile attacks on Israel by Iran proxies Hamas/Hizb'Allah)
    The destruction visited upon both Gaza and Lebanon for previous missile attacks on Israel was horrific. It's possible, but the price extracted upon the host is very prohibitive.

    (3. Asymmetrical attacks on Israeli/Jewish structures and civilians around the globe)
    Terrorist attacks, probably on soft targets such as synagogue's etc. Besides intelligence harvesting and vigilence, there is no foolproof method available to thwart such tactics.

    I see the ongoing situation between Israel and Iran as the same kind of posturing that existed between the US and the Soviet Union, but not happening because each side had the capability to completely destroy the other. I see this as another example of MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction). It won't happen.
    The Godless Russkies were susceptible to a MAD threat because they lived for this world and not the hereafter. Nor did they have a Messianic ideology.

    Iran's leadership has a healthy (or unhealthy) belief in the return of the long deceased Mahdi. Going up in flames would help fulfill that fantasy.

    Surely you know this by now, Dan.
