    here's my scenario, josh. the IAF is engaged over iraq & the israeli planes seem to back off & disappear. the news get out to all main media outlets that the US has spoiled an israeli mission to bomb iran. everybody sighs w/relief & the iranian leadership is overjoyed beyond their dreams. meanwhile the israeli jets refuel on US hangars in the gulf & together w/the US they set out & successfully obliterate the key iranian installations. the russians participate, too. this is later referred to by historians as "the one moment when world powers knew how to act in time." the world goes silent. ban ki-moon doesn't dare to even give an announcement. most sunni arab regimes are tacitely happy. brzezinsky realizes his idea has helped make the operation work & has a nervous breakdown. nasrallah has one, too. ahmadinejad quitely disappears from the scene & later a more moderate regime gets to power in iran. the only voices kicking & screaming are from venezuela, sudan & gaza.
