    Currently, the mullahs are staying with their pants down. After the Israeli raid deep into Syria, they know that even the latest Russian technology will not save them. When the stealth bombers and the cruise missiles will arrive from every direction, the mullahs will even not know what happens to them, nor how to make contact with what used to be their forces. All kind of communications will break down in Iran. There will be nothing left over from their war machine for a counter strike. The dangers for Israel and other countries are not much greater than was the threat from Saddam during the mother of all battles. This is a ruthless but weak dictatorship made apparently strong with great help from Europe. But the Holocaust deniers in Tehran are today in the same situation as the Holocaust perpetrators during the spring of 1944: They know it will happen, but they desperately ignore where and when.
