    Every action has CONSEQUENCES, many unexpected and devastating to the action taker. Zero military operations go as planned, so any attack on Iran by whoever, will have many nasty consequences. I think Clickfool is partially wrong. I think the first thing Iran will destroy in retaliation [after killing a lot of Israeli jet pilots and/or invaders] will be the Saudi oil terminals, as that will immediately kill the US economy. From that point on, I do agree with Clickfool in that Israel's oil and infrastructure will be devastated by HE tipped rockets. Attacking Iran is a war Israel can NOT win and may in fact even lose its entire future. In virtually all the posts I see two major flaws: overestimating the capability of Israel and delusional under-estimating the capability of Iran. In addition the capabilities of Russia and China are ignored. They would probably join the battle on Iran's side. Israel is NOT the smartest kid on the block! There is a lot of brain talent everywhere!
