Look at it from Iran's point of view. The US has not attempted to use military force against any nuclear armed state. No-one believes that Iran is an existantial threat to Israel including the Israeli govt. Israel's concern is merely about the change in the balance of power within the ME. But there is not much Israel can do about it and there is no way that the US, the broke and war weary US, is going to get involved in another ME war just to prevent Iran gaining nuclear capability. BTW - lets all support Ron Paul for President. He is the only candidate willing to openly put American interests first.
