    Saddam and Iraq were Israel's worst enemies at one time. A case had to be made for attacking Iraq. The 911 attacks provided the opportunity and faulty intelligence was used to make a connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda and WMD in Iraq. This was determined to be enough and the American attack went forward in spite of world protests. Things went wrong when no WMD were found although America did not reveal the source of the faulty intel. Now Iran is Israel's greatest enemy. Faulty intel is rampant be we know that this will not be enough or people will begin to connect the dots all the way back to Iraq. Iran must be provoked into making the first hostile move. The faulty intel is enough for Israel to justify assassinating Iranian scientists and America to ratchet sanctions into the stratosphere. The idea is to get Iran to do something. Mine the straits, interfere in Iraq, strike an Israeli target, anything that can be used to justify starting a war. America did this in Vietnam as well. They used a fake attack on two US warships to justify expanding the American role in Vietnam (Gulf of Tonkin Resolution). Iran knows what is going on and will take all the abuse without complaint as they have been doing. They know that their day will come.
