Oh, I agree with you on this. Israel almost seems to defy us by announcing a new settlement the moment there's even the slightest "breakthrough" in the so-called "peace process".
They really are like an unruly teenager. We love them, they are family but they are also a pain in the ass.
I do think we have been counseling restraint with them. So, I suppose "unleashing" would be more like just shutting up and getting out of the way.
I really hope none of this will be necessary. Iran continuously denies building atomic weapons. So, if they turn up with one, they will look pretty bad.
