    This is what I predict. Anyone wants to take bets? (1) The Mossad will blow a small nuclear device in some remote Iranian spot, so that it will look like Iran has conducted its first nuclear weapon test. (2) This will draw the US into striking Iran, keeping that side busy for a while. (3) Israel will launch a "preventive" strike on Hezbollah claiming that they are sure they will be attacked and prefer to take the first strike. (4) As usual, Hezbollah will retaliate by launching its missiles on Israel. (5) Israel will escalate by bombing Lebanon's infrastructure in the hope of alienating the rest of the population against Hezbollah. (6) Hezbollah will launch ground operations deep into Israel and take a few Israeli cities hostage which will stalemate the whole thing. (7) The US will find out that there were indeed no nuclear weapons in Iran and that it was another false flag operation. (8) This time the US public will not be duped and anti-Israeli movements will erupt in the USA. (9) The UN will intervene and force peace on the region, turning it into a demilitarized zone. (10) Historians will say that we could have reached the same point through negotiations and far less casualties and destruction provided people were a little bit more intelligent.
