In a perfect world sanctions would do their job. In the real world any country gets around of sanctions in one way or another. There will always be a seller if their is a buyer. As far as Israel attacking Iran I say no. As soon as the news flashes that Israel attacked Iran missiles will be coming in from Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and any other guy with a missile. Israel can hold her own with local attacks but to know that you are going to get Iran coming after you on another front.......that's suicide. Israel has to get used to the fact that Iran will get her nuclear capability. Iran needs it for pride as well as the knowledge that it is a deterrent in the long run. If the US, EU and NATO want to go after Iran then let them leave Israel out of it or pledgeto back up if Israel if it is dragged into it.
