#1 See DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > [YnetNews] PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA WILL NEVER ATTACK IRAN, or support any Israeli strike agz same.
REGARDLESS OF THE MERITS???
* SAME > [US, EU-led UN Oil] EMBARGO COULD MAKE IRAN RICHER.
Iff the Author's Graph-n-Math is correct, its worth it for Iran to exploit the US-World's oil price fear.

#2 The so-called "JAPAN/EGYPT" MODELS for Iran is potent because it all but absolutely denies any rationale or premise for external milstrike or ground invasion of Iran - NO IRAN NUKES PER SE, NO NEED FOR US, ISRAELI UNILATERAL OR JOINT ATTACK, MAJOR WAR, OR EVEN REFERRAL TO THE UNO.
IMO safe to say that Iran has the ball as per the above scope.
And Iran has already NUKE-ARMED PAKISTAN ...
* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > PAKISTAN NUCLEAR ARSENAL TO DOUBLE TO 250-350 IN 5-10 YEARS [post-2015 -2022], vee NucBombs, Warheads of varying explosive yields???
* SAME > PAKISTAN TELLS ISRAEL TO STOP "LAND-GRABBING" IN PALESTINIAN TERRITORY | PALESTINE NOW A "CORE ISSUE" FOR PAKISTAN.
Iran also has the NUKE-HAPPY, PRO-ISLAMIST, POST-ARAB/MUSLIM SPRINGS" NEW GOVTS, + DPRK + the EX-SOVIET "-STANS" IN CENTRAL ASIA.
Then there is Islamic Law + the UNO itself ...
* SAME > IRAN'S LEGAL RIGHT TO [preemptively] ATTACK ISRAEL, + perhaps even the USA, under UN Charter Articles [e.g. Article 51], + broader or "customary" International Laws???
Finally, once again Radical Islam + aligned can makea good argument that the POST-COLD WAR, OWG-NWO, "GLOBALIST" PREMISE OF A "DIVERSIFIED",
"MULTIPOLAR" WORLD = SOVEREIGN ARAB-MUSLIM STATES CAN HAVE NUCLEAR ARSENALS ALL THEIR OWN.
Wid feeling, OOOOOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPPPSSSSIES.
