    Iran wants to wipe Israel off the face of the planet. Iran wants nukes to bomb Israel, Iran wants to destroy Israel. That is all we have heard for the past few years. Israel wants to attack Iran before they get nukes. Israel and Iran are enemies. Again, that is all we have heard for the past few years. All of a sudden we hear of a plot to kill a Saudi Diplomat in America and bombing the Israeli embassy is an afterthought? Iranians are not that stupid. Bomb someone in America. Unleash the fury of two of the greatest military machines on the planet. It would have been more credible if they had plotted to kill an Israeli diplomat. Israel wants a first strike on Iran. America has been keeping them on a short leash in favor of diplomacy. All of a sudden they jump up out of nowhere and plot a heinous crime on American soil which can clearly be construed as an act of war against the greatest military force on the planet. If you believe this one boys and girls. I have this wonderful bridge to nowhere that I would love to sell you.
