Israel may be able to strike, but suprise surprise, Iran will sooner or later hit back. Could this be prevented? Doubtful, it would require hundreds of thousands of 'boots on the ground' After the Iraqi and Afghan fiascos the US will find it hard to sell that one to the US pop. Will it be Israeli boots; well I think we all know the answer to that one. Will it be EU or NATO, no chance. Hitting Iran is possible but very very stupid and when the price of crude hits record highs and stays there, very very expensive.
