    Hasn't Iran stated that any attack on their sovereignty will see them manuevering in the Persian Gulf to close the Strait of Hormuz?

    That is intended to hurt the U.S., not Israel.

    I think it will hurt any country that relies on importing oil, not just the United States.

    Iran attempting to close the Strait of Hormuz basically ensures conflict with the United States. If push came to shove, unless we (and not Israel) basically started a war with them, I do not see Iran making such a move.

    If Israel attacked Iran with a low-yield nuclear warhead, you can be sure they will be blaming America along with Israel. What we do know is that Iran has already threatened to militarily close the Strait if there is any preemptive attack. What we do know is that Iran has HY-2 Haiying and C-801 anti-ship missiles already in place on Abu Musa, as well as the MIM-23 Hawk anti-aircraft missiles. In the long run, any attempt by Iran to close the Strait will be very damaging to Iran's infrastructure. In the short run, Iran can cause the entire world a lot of problems simply by harrassing tankers in the Strait.

    There is no chance Israel would use a nuke, we might have a government full of Bush clones. However, some logic is maintanted in there, and in that logic there is a huge sign saying " DO NOT USE NUKES"

    Anyone that maintains a government job and actually wants to fire a nukes...I just got no words to describe the..I cant even describe my fail to describe..

    People need to get it out of their heads about nukes.

    and one thing is 4sure using nukes is not even thought of.

    Its stupid to think that israel would use nukes.

    Cept for the fact that not only Israel and the USA would prob bomb the heck out of the AA and AB missles, also other nations would jump on ( i can see the UK getting involved) It would end up like the war when Eygpt blockaded the siuz canal and france britian and israel attacked it. ( spell phail deal with it ^^ )

    I 100% would argue that there are people in the government examing that possibility. If there is not, then your government is doing you a grave injustice by not examing all options. Perhaps it is not a viable option, but I guarantee someone is examining that option.

    People need to get it out of their heads about nukes.

    and one thing is 4sure using nukes is not even thought of.
    Let's be real, if a few low-yield tactical nukes were in fact used, would it be the end of the world? No.

    Its stupid to think that israel would use nukes.
    No its not, it is considering all options....something every government would do.
