    Things have been allowed to get to a stage where only the Americans can do the job. From their airbases and carrier fleets they can launch stealth jets, heavy bombers, fighters and Tomahawk missile. They would be able to destroy not only the entire nuclear program but also their retaliation by starting off by destroying missile launch sites and air defenses then they are free to drop as many bombs as they like and Iran would have limit offensive & defensive capabilities. For Israel there is very little it could do there is the distance means that Israeli planes can't go rearm and take of again and the closest thing Israel has to a heavy bomber is an F15. The nuclear sites are spread around the country so that would mean using over 100 jets, try getting 100 planes to avoid Iranian radar before they get to the target. Because they would need to fill their racks with bombs to give maximum chances of success it would mean apart from their cannons the pilots would have no way to defend themselves from Iranian ones, it would be a suicide mission and the pilots would know it. Sanctions are not going to work because Iran needs nukes to rule the region which is their long term plan right now they would have a hard time defeating Saudi Arabia who have the largest and most advanced fleet of fighter jets in the Middle East ( bigger & more advanced jets than even Israel ) Their ground forces are also built with American equipment rather than Russian or domestically made weapons so they are not going to give up their nuclear ambitions through choice and in the end military action is the only solution and only the Americans can do the job. It would also be in America's best interests because pretty soon Iranian missiles will have the range to reach mainland America so stick a nuke on the top of that and America has a real problem and it will be to late because even America's superior conventional weapons will be no use if Iran can retaliate with a nuke.
