    "there are 2 scenarios here on bibi`s visit, one, bibi went to russia to get support for striking iran, fearing that russia will go fully against israel,this leads me to believe israel is going to attack very soon ... " I disagree. In the past, Israel has always kept very quiet about her real intentions, and sprung them as a surprise to the world. Witness the invasion of Egypt, and the operation in Entebbe, both operations executed with exquisite timing and total silence beforehand. Considering her bravado in the recent past, if Israel is planning to attack Iran, then she has lost all the marbles she once had, which is, of course, a distinct possibility. The other possibiulity is that she does not plan an attack but simply talks big. In either case, she is doing everything she can to insure that she remains alone. And the consquences of that may well be such as VIPER describes.
