    "At what point (if ever) will the US give the Israeli`s the green light to attack? Israel now has five Dolphin submarines able to launch 40 (with 1 reload) cruise missiles.These could be conventional warheads." - Mark Leaman If George W. Bush didn't give a green light it is unlikely Obama would. Advocates in Israel seem to be basing their planning on the US being drawn in to the war following an Israeli attack. Without nuclear warheads those few SLCMs would not be capable of seriously damaging the Iranian program. The same is true for Israel's ballistic missile assets. Iran has not made the mistake of Iraq and another nation of putting all it's 'eggs' in one basket.
