    Israeli citizens just how bad it will be for them if Israel attacks Iran? The US military, CIA and the IDF ALL KNOW what the most likely consequences of war with Iran are: (1) the closing of the Persian gulf and oil going to over $200/bbl. (2) the devastation of the US and EU economies and extreme anger in the US and EU towards Israel (3) Thousands of missiles destroying most of Israel's infrastructure (think Dresden-like) (4) the deaths of many Israelis. And the terrible list goes on. The IDF can NOT prevent the devastation inside Israel, the US will not be able to help and Iranians will fight to the death to destroy Israel (70 million vs 6 million). This is a war that Israel can NOT win and has no need to start. The US loses in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan will look minor compared to the loss Israel will suffer. When will the Israeli press ask Israelis how many want to die for war with Iran?
