The Egyptians have already given Israel permission to fly through their airspace to hit Iran. WHAT DOES THIS TELL YOU?
The Saudis hate Iran as much as the rest of the world does. Iran's only real ally is Syria. Syria and the babbling moron who runs it are no match for Israel. Israel will reduce Syria to a smoldering dung heap.
NOBODY in the middle east wants Iran to have nuclear arms.... NOBODY. There will be public condemnation but that is as far is it will go.

And with the public opinion on Iraq with the Iraq inquiry, do you think Britain will ever be able to garner enough Parliamentary support to declare war on Iran? To be honest, i highly doubt a UK and French offensive would ever be successful anyway. The UK and France would never even consider war with Iran (or any other European power for that matter) without going in side by side with the Americans.
I also cant see Americans being so vocal on the issue and actually not touching a war in the event it did break out.
What about him? France isnt nearly as vocal or pressing on the issue as Germany and there hardly American bootlickers.

Conspiracy theory or bad assumption with no significant evidence.
Means that the small uptick we are seeing is just a temporary reprive, generally due to massive governmental stimulus, rather then sustainable economic growth.
With the UK government finally ending QE, and the Fed thinking about withdrawing it, the next leg downward is coming
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
