    Even if Iran gets its nukes tomorrow (in reality, one more year is needed), then what? Iran has one nuclear bomb. Would Iran pick a fight with one bomb? Not likely. Logically Iran would need several to even think about it. That alone will add 2 to 3 more years to the time frame. Even with several bombs, would Iran be able to strike Israel without a significant existential damage to herself? The logical answer is NO. Iran is run by the Guards today and mullah/religion is increasingly a window dressing. These guys are in it for power and money. They are not going to compromise their position. The real objective is to bring the United States to the negotiation table for security guarantees i.e. the Chinese model of the Nixon era. Their position at home is extremely unstable. They are hated by the vast majority of people. This government has no future. They are only a matter time.On the other hand a nuclear Iran will maginalize Israel politically. It is not about war but power.Shalom.
