Iran's plan was to wait out her reply to the five powers+Germany on the nuclear incentives package, contingent on temp shutdown of Iran's nuke R&D, enrichment. To wait until Hizballah had saturated and terrorized Israel with 15,000 rockets, to the point of Israeli gov ordering desperate self defense with tactical nukes. But Olmert's gov read through Iran's mischief. In addition, the IDF is commanded by old IAF hand who would not hesitate to bomb the enemy 24x7, with no mercy. There is no shortage of bombs, no shortage of warplanes and no shortage of pilots and ground crews. The IAF alone could defeat Iran. Iran's plan was to jump start their nuclear weapons program by Aug 22, claiming "self defense" and pointing to first ME nuke use by Israel. No fat chance. Syria is too experienced in her wars with Israel to play a dumb tool in the hands of Shi'a clerics now ruling Iran (and Hizballah). Damascus may even dispose of Nasrallah on their own.Wash off their hands from the Hariri affair.
