"And Bibi's highest priority, shared by his neocon allies, is a U.S. war on Iran in 2013."
I don't agree with you very much when it concerns this war and this is a classic example. Israel simply does not have the capability to wage effective war against Iran, unless they use nuclear weapons. Not any more likely than the U.S. attacking Iran with nukes either. The problem is that Iran is at war against BOTH Israel AND the U.S. It is not going away. We can afford to ignore it far more than Israel simply because we are much further away AND can withstand far more than one or two nuclear strikes.
It is only a matter of time before nuclear weapons enters the picture in this war. It may not be in 2013, but it is only a matter of time.
