Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years, it should be pretty clear that tensions between Israel and Iran are going to reach a boiling point.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for the destruction of Israel, while at the same time working on Irans nuclear program. This should be pretty simple, hatred + means = war.
On the flip side of the coin, we have Benjamin Netanyahu calling for a military strike on Iran. The strike would have the purpose of either destroying Irans nuclear capability, or setting progress back a few years.
In other words, we have two nations that want to destroy each other.
Israel says it only wants to destroy Irans nuclear program. Regardless of the reason for an attack, an attack is still an attack.
Now for the larger problem, Benjamin Netanyahu seems to be the main instigator in attacking Iran. It seems that everyone and their brother and sister does not want to attack Iran, maybe they realize the conflict would soon cross borders, everyone that is besides Benjamin Netanyahu.
China and Russia have both warned the US not to attack Iran. It seems Israel is ignoring the warnings from a couple of nuclear superpowers.
If Israel were to attack Iran, it would be physically impossible for Israel to maintain the conflict. Israel does not have the landmass or natural resources to maintain a prolonged conflict.
Israel attacks Iran, Israel starts to get the crap beat out of it, the US has to step in to prevent the destruction of Israel.
Egypt and Libya recently went through a civil war. It appears that the powers that were at least neutral in the Arab VS Jew conflict have now been replaced with sharia law types of Muslims.
Lets say that Israel attacks Iran, do we “really” expect Egypt and Libya to sit by and watch?
Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed during an attack on the Libyan consulate. Some people say the attack was related to the video “innocence of the muslims”, others say the attack was coordinated and a terrorist attack. In Yemeni, protestors stormed the embassy.
