Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
Israel will NEVER attack Iran as the United Nations along with the USA would sanction them severely and cutting off the funding America currently sends to Israel would be a severe setback for Israel.
Politically, this would also be a LOSING proposition for the Israeli's and would cause more political harm than the perceived benefits of such an attack.
There is NOTHING to be gained for Israel and they are not fools. They make want everyone to believe they MIGHT do it; but the idea that they actually WILL attack requires some serious denial of the political REALITIES and consequences of such an attack.
I am always amused that anyone takes the news or reports from a repressive regime like this seriously. After all, the UN is doing NOTHING regarding Iran's progress towards nuclear technology. Obviously the entire world doesn't take them serious.
That said, we should take the rhetoric serious and the Obama Administration needs to constantly remind our ally Israel of the SERIOUS consequences should they attempt any kind of attack along the lines of the attacks made on Iraqi facilities.
However, Israel is no fool. Unlike the rest of the world they take the Iranian threat very seriously as they should. They will launch a preemptive strike if Iran achieves nuclear capibilities. They will not risk the lives of their people like the foolish and blind Obama Administration.
A hostile country never ceases to be that. And they have more than enough military strength to eliminate Israel. Despite the IAFs superiority in the sir.
Japan and The Republic of Korea, while not likely able to defeat North Korea, would likely be able to stop an invaision long enough for UN support to arrive.
While the UN doesnt want another Korean War, they will step in to prevent the loss of the Korean foothold and the Japanese market (refering to their economy).
