File under: Govt of Iran
#1 Doesn't spare or do the US anything good as per retaliatory TerrOps - Iran has times said any attack by Israel will be deemed the same as an attack by the US. At minima Israel's attack will be deemed by Iran as known + approved by Washington.
* See also BHARAT RAKSHAK > [Guardian.UK]ISRAEL'S "RED LINE" ON IRAN: 240-KGS, of Enriched Uranium i.e. the amount required for one Nuke/Uranium Bomb.
IIUC, Israel calculus has its timeline for Iran attack predicated on how soon Iran, at current or known rates of enrichment, can stockpile 240-kgs of EU for one Bomb, be it direct [singular purpose = NucWeaps only] or indirect [multi-use, includ for NucWeaps].
ARTIC NUTSHELL = Iff the above is correct, ISRAEL MAY UNILATERALLY ATTACK IRAN EITHER IN EARLY SPRING 2012, OR DURING SUMMER 2013.
* TOPIX, WORLD NEWS > IRAN DENIES REPORTS OF ENRICHMENT SUSPENSION.
* FYI BHARAT RAKSHAK > [Jerusalem Post] SUNNI ISLAMISM [ + Sunni Arab identity] IS REPLACING ARAB NATIONALISM.
Turks, Persians, Kurds, ...@etc. non-Arab Sunni Muslims need not apply.
ARTIC > SUNNI = RADICAL SUNNI ISLAMISM, to includ NUCLEAR SUNNI ISLAM, by virtue of it being the majority in the Islamic World is a potens greater threat or danger to the International Community than a NUCLEAR-ARMED IRAN. SIGNIFICANT SECTARIAN RIFTS/SCHISMS WIDIN ISLAM CAN INCREASINGLY BE SEEN AS PER
> Theological differences.
> Individual Leaders, Personages.
> Organizations + Polities.
> Muslim State(s) competing or vying for Power-N-Primacy.
Once again, as I've said or inferred times before, 9-11 + GWOT = WAR FOR OWG-NWO = AS MUCH AN INTER-MUSLIM STRUGGLE FOR POWER-N-INFLUENCE/DOMINATION-N-CONTROL, ETC. AMONG ISLAMIC NATIONS AS IT IS ISLAM-VS-NON-ISLAM.
The Sunni Saudis have major, even dangerous?, rivals, + not just as per Shia Iran either.
