#1 For some reason these quotes come to mind.

Harry Callahan: I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

[after a battered crook has accused Harry of beating him]
Chief: Have you been following that man?
Harry Callahan: Yeah, I've been following him on my own time. And anybody can tell I didn't do that to him.
Chief: How?
Harry Callahan: Cause he looks too damn good, that's how!

Israel has been surrounded since 1948. If Iran and/or Egypt feel lucky, that would be a huge mistake.

#2 Iran has times said that any attack by Israel will be deemed the same as an attack by the US or US-West which would validate an Iranian counterresponse, including but not limited to TerrOPs agz US, Israeli ME + International targets = personages, interests, etc.

Pesky Persians gotta be Pesky, + truth be told they like it that way - by Iran's own scope, IT WILL NOT BE JUST AN ISRAELI-IRAN MIL CONFLICT OR LIMITED TO JUST THE MIDDLE EAST, + IT WILL A BE A DECISIVE "WAR TO THE DEATH" = 'WAR OF ANNIHILATION". IMO it will be a "long war" to despite any periods of intermediate "quiet/lull".

Radical Islam's jihad is already "global/
universal/international" by definition - an extra-Regional ME mil conflict seemingly initiated by Israel will only serve to complement it. IRAN + JIHADIS WILL NOT BELIEVE THAT THE US PER SE DID NOT APPROVE OF ISRAEL'S ACTION.

#3 Yeah Joe, I seem to remember a mustached guy shaking a bolt action rifle and shouting about the 'Mother of all Battles'.

I wonder how that all turned out.
I'm gonna miss stopping at the 7/11.
