#1 Israel must know it will likely bear the brunt of Iran's fury ala Terror Ops in the wake of any attack by it agz Iran's NucProgs, espec as Iran does desire to avoid a major US-led ground campaign agz its soil.
The IRGC is intended to possess both proxy Terror, as well as "Main/Military Force" elements under its authority - IMO this infers that Israel will face not only Civie MilTerr Groups but also perhaps uniformed Iranian Commando-SPECOPS strikes.
1980's IRAN-IRAQ "WAR OF THE CITIES/SCUDS" REDUX, except its Israel this time.
Possible given ...
* SINA FORUM > WID RYAN PICK, ROMNEY WOULD SEND A MESSAGE.
Unlike past POTUS predecessors, the GOP + a POTUS Mittens WILL NOT BE FOCUSING ON FOREIGN POLICY THIS YEAR [first Romney term = 2013-2017]???
Remember now, Romney is the one whom repor wants to "BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB IRAN"!
NO "FOREIGN POLICY" = NO BOMBS FALLING ON IRAN.
* SAME > REUTERS - IRAN HAS NO PLAN TO CREATE NUCLEAR WEAPONS.
Hence no reason for Israel andor the US to attack it.
* SAME > [US = Pentagon] DEFENSE OFFICIALS WORRY ABOUT IRAN'S EFFORTS TO TRAIN, BUILD MILITIAS TO FIGHT REBELS IN SYRIA.
Juxtapose, wid Syria = Israel, + Rebels = IDF.
Iran wants Syria + Hizbullah-dominated Lebanon to project MilPol power + influence into the Mediterranean, starting wid Iran Navy units + prolly IRGC ground elements.

#2 Odd, Israel says one thing, Americans SAY another, seems the USA is "left out" a bit.
(Under O'Bullshit, sounds OK, I'd leave his ass swinging too)

#7 What a relief. Although I'm getting closer to the point where I actually understand what JM says.
