    No amount of daydreaming about sanctions, preemptive attacks, rapprochments between Israel and Sunni Arab regimes, will make the Iranian djinn get back into the bottle. While Ahmadinejad might appear to some as Irans version of George Bush without a tie, don't be fooled, the Mullahs behind the little Professor have their hands firmly on their puppet's strings. Bush and pals are simply out of control and will be out of buisiness in less than a year and a half. The Irans have out foxed the US at every step, and like Saadam in Iraq, who even nows after his execution, have the ear of an ocean of people who absolutely despise the West. We will have to learn to live with it. Sooner than later America will retire from the ME, in the meantime, Israelis who think that the USAF will bomb the Mullahs nukes are dreaming. America doesn't have to do anything. Iran will not risk a war with America, and the American public will never again go to war in the ME after Iraq. Israel is alone.
