    After all, what's the point of a 'credible military option' if you're not willing to follow through? Striking the processing plants will require mid-air refueling, as well as traveling through Iraqi airspace which the Americans will not allow as long as Iran can threaten the SLOC from the oil-producing countries. The Turks won't allow the Israelis to fly to the north, and going through Syria is asking for trouble. Even if the IAF managed to reach their targets, does anyone believe that there won't be losses, and almost certainly a retaliation by Iran and its proxies? On one hand you can allow a nuclear-armed Iran and live with the deterrance. On the other, you can start a bloody and costly new war which may destroy the economy of your main benefactor and arms supplier. Surely not a difficult choice.
