Hnd them a grenade with the pin pulled and say, "Here, talk your way out of this".

#2 Israel can conventionally strike Iran, but short of launching its JERICHO III NUCLEAR LRBMS is unlikely to win or survive a protractive, 1980's-style "War of the Cities" [Iran-Iraq War] widout massive + routinely-delivered US, Allied assistance.

SLACKERS! Had already seen a few time back [prototypes?] buzzing around here in Hagatna/Agana. NOT JUST "DRAGONFLYS" EITHER.

Nice-color wings, but the motor noise quality needs rework, i.e. too much weirdo hippie noise for that kind of mini flying buy.

D *** NG IT, DARPA-JPL, WHADDAYA TRYING TO DO - CONVERT ME TO RAP MUSIC!

Hopefully for Israel's sake, the US' attention won't get diverted at the wrong time.

#3 
Even former Mossad chief Meir Dagan, who openly opposed an attack on Iran, has shut up, as have the lofty literary lights of the left wing peace movements.


NOW is the time to pin these liberal pin-heads to the wall and demand where they stand. If they waffle, point out that they're waffling because they DON'T want to take a stand, but want to stand aside and carp when things go bad (which is inevitable given the way life goes). Applaud the ones who go on record NOW for courage, and ridicule the rest FOREVER.

#4 NOW is the time to pin these liberal pin-heads

Meir Dagan is hardly a pin-head: liberal or otherwise; he just favors a cover solution (if you're a hammer etc...)
