    I have written so in the past. Russia will not allow the above. Neither will China. Even if the US Blockades the Straits of Hormuz. Which they cannot do. Iranian Navy speedboats will drop mines everywhere. Russia will send in gasoline etc by railroad. A Mexican stand off between the superpowers could well happen. The answer lies with Israel. Take out all Iranian Naval facilities. Then the secret plants. Then maybe some RG facilities. For its the RG that holds the throne of Mr.Ahmadinejad. Daring PM Netanyahu is stupid and dangerous. For he will not hesitate. The IDF is far more powerful than he realises. The Right of Survival of the Israeli people is paramount. The Palestinian card may well be played out by Iran. Iran has passed the point of no return. Secret facilities are known to Israel. Yes, Iran is far bigger than some may think. So is the ego of Mr.Ahmadinejad.
