personally, I think the spark is going to come from either hamas and or hezbollah which Israel will respond to and which WILL bring iran to react...at which point, israel can have at the mullahs and their nascent nuke program...which will then involve their lashing out at the US....obama in 2012 is going to be on the mat with this...he can't avoid it like he wants to.....if you watch charlie rose, the anti semite zbigniew brzezhinski was on last night and he was clearly stating that he favours a policy of containment....which for sure he is advising obama to follow...obama will talk a good game as long as he can up till 2012,after which, if he wins, he will not support any strike on iran nor will he support israel as his "unshakeable ally"...oh he'll still talk his usual crap, but he will change the relationship. make no mistake israel; if you are to attack iran, it has to be 2012...and if you do, there's a good chance it will ruin obama's reelection chances at the economy will be affected. If obama were smart, he's be proactive and attack irans nuke facilities...it would win him HUGE support from americans who LOATHE iran and the mullahs....oil shortfall will be temporary as saudi and iraq and kuwait will make it up...
