Israel could expect missile attacks from Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza. Iran?s Republican Guards could launch maritime attacks against civilian and other shipping in the Gulf. Iran would also more than likely engage in terrorism against Jewish and western targets by activating Hizballah cells around the globe. As in 1991 and 2006, Israel and the Gulf states would be able to sustain the Iranian response, even though the loss of life and the destruction of homes and infrastructure might be considerable. Israel and the GCC states would prefer to sustain Iran?s retaliatory response to an attack against its nuclear reactors than to live with a nuclear-weaponised Iran, which would threaten the political independence of the GCC countries and the very existence of Israel. A military strike is unlikely to end Iran?s nuclear ambitions. But it would set back Iran?s nuclear enrichment program and buy time to allow sanctions to work, if still required.
