If Russia with its massive nuclear power and methods of delivery during the so-called Cold War did not attack America (recall the Cuban Crisis) what kind of Chutzpah would be required for Iran to attack America? Only Netanyahu knows. He does a great deal of moaning and threatening. If he is convinced that Iran is a threat to Israel---it certainly would be suicidal for Iran to attack either Israel or the U.S---why is he taking so long to take out Iran's nuclear facilities? The answer must be Israel will suffer terrible losses if it attacks Iran. In fact the whole Islamic world would explode taking down the Islamic governments in Saudi Arabia and other allies of the West in the region. The U.S. economy under those circumstances would collapse not to mention the world economy. Mr. Netanyahu should dismount from his war horse and plant his heels into what is the real world. Americans are not morons, Mr. Netanyahu!
