    Nobody wants war, not even Israel if it involves using their own troops or putting their troops at risk. Netanyahu thinks somebody else should put their troops at risk. And some in his coalition think Iran would be like Iraq and fold. But if they don't fold, Israel wouldn't put 100,000 on Iranian for an indefinite occupation to search Iran and make sure they are not building a bomb in some hidden place. In other words, Iran is not an existential threat since Israel is not willing to sacrifice its hold on the West Bank and Gaza to deal with the "threat." Israel is under the US nuclear umbrella and nobody in the history of nuclear weapons has attacked a country with nukes that is under our umbrella. So Israel will have to live with the imaginary weapons that they cannot convince anybody Iran has. Israel will get used to it. Except for the first year of my life, I have lived with real nuclear weapons pointed at me. You can learn to do so too.
