We ask: Will defeated U.S. President Donald Trump use his last few weeks in office to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities – or is he too preoccupied with his quixotic battle against the election results?

What plans do the newly installed Pentagon officials have for the last two months of the Trump Administration? Will Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seek or be given a green light to attack Iran - or is he, too, busy with other things?
