The latest surge of chatter regarding a pre-emptive attack on Iran are insane. An unprovoked first strike attack -- regardless of Israeli public opinion polling or support of the cowardly U.S. administration and Republican trolling for votes -- is unacceptable back in the real world. It will result in strengthening the Iranian regime, set back the Arab spring, result in thousands of civilian deaths all around, end Israel's legitimacy in the eyes most of its remaining supporters around the world. Israel just needs to end the occupation, help establish a Palestinian state. Then, and only then Israel will truly be able to defend internationally recognized borders against any and all attacks.
