Iran is working towards having 6 million hostages who can be annihalated at a tough of a button. Given the US methods when it comes to attacking countries, and the fact that Iran would have studied what happened in Iraq. It wouldn't suprise me if Iranian commanders probably have standing orders that when the first bomb drops then they have a target list to fire their missiles at. This is bound to include Israel, as Iran will have one eye on the arab street. While hoping that Iran can be dissuaded from playing at sill buggers, there is a real possibility that continuously pressuring them as is happening now will cause a major conflab. Those Carriers cannot be kept on station forever.
