#1 Should create a map that divides Iran up by ethnic groups. I've read a lot of no Persians are unhappy with the current Iranian borders. Carve out a Baluchistan, Shia Arabistan, Kurd East and Aberbejwhatever. Then support any uprisings with extensive air power for humanitarian reasons.
If Israel is smart (and under Bibi I believe they are) they will prepare to solve the Hezbollah and Hamas problems once and for all when war comes with plans for dislocating Palestinians if things really get bad. Gotta think long term. Syria and Iran might end but Egypt is also becoming an enemy again after all.

I agree with every word.
there is only one mistake here. Egypt is not "becoming" an enemy. It is already a serious enemy who intentionally turned the Sinai peninsula into a no man's land with Al Kaida and Beduin terrorists reigning supreme and freely moving everywhere.
The only reason Egypt does not attack Israel is their internal political instability and economical problems.
I expect them to attack us at the first convenient opportunity they have.
