Nice thought...not going to happen though. Nothing short of Iran using "the big fire" will cause that to happen. The Prime Minister and the President are too politically weakened by the rampant pacifism infecting their populations - and powering their internal political enemies - to be able to take any aggressive action. They have no recourse but "diplomacy", because their internal opposition is too powerful to allow anyting else, which is why Iran feels completely free to do pretty much whatever they want knowing the response will be nothing but a "harshly worded" statement that must be cleared through numerous other countries.
We are neutered...and its the flaming pacifism of our own population that did it.
