#8 well ... the divergence between US press releases and Israeli press releases is becoming very noticeable now. Do ya' think this could possibly have anything to do with the approaching election in Nov .... Nahhhh! I didn't think so either :-)
The question is ... where exactly does Israel draw the line in the sand? That's the $64,000 question.

#9 Er they got heavily held back, Google.stuxnet virus. The us made it, what else have they done. I beleive there position and second there is always an air strike a couple of mins away. The other thing is the us have many spy sattelites and I'm sure there keeping a close watch.

#10 So IOW the USA itself admits it has no reason to attack Iran - moreso as Iran will only have the capability to quickly build Nukes in times of emergency under its hallowed "Japan/Egypt" nuclear model, + not seemingly have any nuke arsenal per se.
By most accounts MAHANIST Tehran is optmistic or confident that, short of direct US-NATO = UNSC ground intervention, Baby Assad will prevail in Syria. They need Syria for their desired new anti-US naval presence in the Mediterranean, which is NOT what the KSA + Turkey wanna see.
