Israel Risks Plunging Middle East Into Regional War

This must be music to the ears of those who dream of Armageddon and impatiently await The Rapture.   The Americans recently ran a war game simulation of what would follow an Israeli air attack on Iranian nuclear facilities.   Apparently they were rocked by the predicted results - a regional war that would quickly drag America into its maelstrom.

It seems the Americans needed a war game simulation to realize that an Israeli airstrike on Iran would probably trigger an Iranian missile attack on one or more of the aircraft carriers the US Navy has cruising rather menacingly near Iran in the Persian Gulf.   Who'da thunk it?   That would, of course, be the act of war or Casus Belli that the hawks in Washington would need to then launch their own war on Iran.

American officials believe Israel would probably give Washington little or no advance notice of launching a strike against Iran.  And, of course, there's no mention in this of the enormous havoc that would be caused within Iran from the nuclear debris of these attacks or how Russia and China could exploit the chaos or find themselves dragged into the conflict.

"Disaffected Liberal"
You would not be so disaffected if you read Yevs Englers, brilliantly documented book:
'Lester Pearsons Peacekeeping'

When 'we' discuss The americans, we should be aware of our political history

Perhaps you will become a "Disgusted Liberal" !

@ shane. I'm truly at a loss to grasp what Lester Pearson can possibly have to do with an Israeli attack on Iran. Maybe within the recesses of some tortured mind there's a link but probably not so much in the sane world. Nice try though.

You're half wrong. The "regional" part.

@ LS, I hope you're not thinking in terms of something larger than a regional war.

The religious fundamentalist are all waiting for that day. Then Jesus will return and make everything alright.

Yeah, and Merkel got Netanyahu's promise that he wouldn't arm the Dolphins with nuke warheads. Yeah, like Netanyahu's word ever meant anything.
