#1 IMO Iran's response is already clear-cut, as its dev of de facto NucWeaps and unleashing TerrOps + LRBMS agz the US-Israel + Allied will be all but absolutely justified.

Hezbollah's rivals or dedicated enemies widin various Regional, International Radical Islamist/Islamic MilTerr Groups will becom its allies in strikes across the ME + the West.

Iff Iran's Govt, Mullahs make good on their threats, an ISRAELI STRIKE AGZ IRAN'S NUCPROGS = US=LED GROUND INVASION OF IRAN WILL HAVE TO OCCUR IFF THE US LIKES IT OR NOT. Similar to former POTUS Dubya's dilemma vee Saddam Hussein + Iraq after 9-11.

The threat to the US-Allies will devol from Iran per se to PRO-IRAN, THIRD-PARTY/SURROGATE MILTERR NUKE-WMD TERROR WHERE IRAN PCORRECTLY KEEPS ITS SILENCE AS PER WHOM ORDERED WHAT-N-WHEN.

Iran has times said or inferred it - the above will be WW3 = Global War to the Death once the die is cast.

#2 Israel would take a lot of hits from rockets ... with casualties in the hundreds or low thousands.

Iran would be knocked back to the stone age - since they are already in an economic crisis.

unknown - could Iran sink any US ships in the Persian Gulf? It only takes one success for them to count this as a victory. Can they block the Straits of Hormuz for a week ... for 2 weeks ... for a month?

unknown - what terrorist strikes can Iran execute around the globe?

unknown - does Iran already have a number of dirty bombs, or one untested nuke, ready to go right now?

unknown - does Israel have a workable plan to eliminate Irans top leadership in the run-up to a strike?

unknown - will Israel use its own nukes to accomplish this goal?

#3 * DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > IRAN BUILDS UP MILITARY [naval base?] ON DISPUTED ISLANDS, SIGNALS INTENT TO [again]THREATEN CLOSURE OF STRAIT OF HORMUZ.

Putting its Subs + ASCM-armed Speedboats close to the entrance, while simul also continuing to isolate the Arabian Peninsula???

More evidencia/indicia as per my above Post.

* SAME > VIDEO: ROMNEY - SYRIA IS IRAN'S ALLY, AND IS ALSO IRAN'S ROUTE TO THE SEA.

WAPO is seemingly critiquing Mittens for northern Iraq being geographically in Iran's way.

Lest WAPO fergits, IRAQ = REPOR IS INCREASINGLY IRAN-DOMINATED???

versus

* TOPIX > ISRAEL ALMOST BOMBED IRAN NUCLEAR SITES IN 2010.
