It's difficult to truly understand the mindset of the Ayatollah. He may or may not actually be willing to attack Israel with nuclear weapons, and I personally don't think he will (because of the argument this writer puts forth). Iran's context doesn't fit the theory he's relying upon though. I also give weight to the idea that Iran may act irrationally and that in fact, its leadership may not be deterred by the thought of retaliation. They in fact may fully believe they're fulfilling our collective destiny.
