Or is it the direct threat made by Sayyed Nasrallah to target with missiles from Lebanese bases arterial locations in Israel? Isn't it was is called balance of power?
No truth to none of it. U.S-Israeli built anti-missile systems protecting all major targets in Israel have been proven to be 80% effective. Hezbollah's missiles are about 30% effective in hitting a target, provided dozens are fired.
What is true, howevrer, is that a majority of Israeli's don't want to bomb Iran.
Ehud Barak, the Israeli Defense Minister, is simply waiting for his former Bain Capital co-founder, Mitt Romney, to become president.
It is not what Pierre Khalaf wrote about the new sophisticated missiles in possession of the Lebanese resistance. It seems that Egypt also is on alert by its Sinai border! So if I understand well Israel's predicament, danger may come from Lebanon, Egypt, Syria (potentially).
Both sides are bellicose so I don't pay much attention to either.
Iran says it will use nukes (if it gets them) to annihilate Israel. Israel vows to preempt that action by bombing Iran's nuclear facilities.
I think President Obama's method of attack - cyberattack via the Stutxnet Worm, was creative and dealt Iran's nuclear centrifuge's a blow without killing people.
One thing appears evident - letting Iran gain nuclear weapon technology is not in the best interest of the rest of the world. I'm just not sure anyone, Israel, the US or the UN, can stop it forever.
