I do not contest your comments about the capabilities and professionalism of the Israelis. But I think option #2 is the one we should expect. I truly believe that the U.S. will launch its own strike, after the November elections, possibly early next year.
And please do not take my comments as suggesting any disapproval or lack of support for Israel -- far from it. I just think the U.S. will fear an Islamic "rally round the faithful" type of reaction if the Israelis strike and, seeking to avoid that, we will do the job ourselves.
But if we do nothing, I expect Israel will act.
I do not think that the U.S. will launch a strike due to the morass in Iraq. Too many forces(especially the Air Force) is alloted to destroying Al Queda facilities and destroying the insurgency through the country.
My smart money is on Israel. The IAF will rule the skies and destroy Iran's ability to wage war in a quick and surgical manner.Israel will win.
