    Oyoyoy ! What happened with the Jewish brains in Israel ! By the way, to consider that somebody is going to thing in hindsight "but the EU enacted sanctions on Iran's crude oil export to the 27 countries, affective July 1st" is absurd. After such an attack, the entire world will have forgotten it. If Israel attacks, its only the last resort in her existential dire straits. EU crude oil sanction (that Iran's president himself says don't scratch Iran) won't be the issue then, but the thousands of unintercepted missiles raining on Israel from Gaza, Lebanon, Syria, Sinai and Iran, -G'd forbid-. If Barak is bluffing, then Israel's deterrence will hit another low. There is no way to avoid the entire world condemning Israel in the hours after, and the Israelis who may die -G'd forbid- in the wake of it, will not be mourned by a hostile, cowardly world, who just left Jews alone. Only that this time around, the Jewish people has a state, an army and air force and will fight for its survival vis-a-vis genocidal Islamist fanatics. I hope the result is a toppling of Iran's regime, and that the USA is on board, with a grudging Obama not tying Israel's hands.
