    If the west goes soft on Iran as appears to be happening then Bibi is going to come under more and more pressure at home to take military action. The Iranians have said they consider Israel and the US two sides of the same coin and if one attacks then Iran will attack both in retaliation. So Israel attacks Iran, Iran will attack US airbases & probably stir up trouble in Afghanistan & Iraq. Result is going to be an all out war between the US and Iran, not just destroy some strategic sites but bomb Iran back to the stone age. Iran may also involves Saudi Arabia and block the Straits of Hormuz and when that happens global oil prices will sky rocket and people will just not be able to afford to use their cars so those who don't live close to their place of work will be unemployed. It will cost more money for farmers to operate their equipment and to transport it so food prices will go right up. Any industry that relies on oil directly or indirectly will be hit. It will make the 2008 global recession look like a minor problem. Some countries are already broke something like that would be to much for them to handle so we may end up seeing wars in other parts of the world as well.. All because the west lost their nerve on Iran and forced Bibi into action.
