Iran is controlled by a barbaric bunch of mullahs and one “Chief”, I believe that cowboy and Indian strategy is going to be the result.
So ya wait til the group of crazy chiefs get together and launch a whole bunch of tom cruise missiles at the lot.

Unfortunately, I don’t think Iran is reliant only on one or few madmen (like Nazi-Germany). The goal for nukes is widely shared among the ruling elite and also by the masses. The masses are probably not interested in nuking Israel, though, but they want the nukes nevertheless.
Anyway, this was one of the best articles I have read for a long time about Israel’s option and capabilities. Only thing missing was the submarine option (also posted on FR today).
The attack would probably start with fighter jets, ie initial strike with ~80 jets bypassing radar systems. Then, the surprise element is lost, and subsequent F15/F16 strikes would be much more dangerous. Instead, the second phase would involve ballistic conventional missiles (Jericho) and missiles from the submarine(s) on the Red Sea.
I’m not sure if commando operations are possible (sounds like a suicide mission).
Iran is a nemesis, no help from America on this as our government takeover has been a tragedy. Hope this ends with BIG explosions in Iran and no fallout. The hatred toward Israel and the increased anti-semitism is really a mess, BUT, "...if good men do nothing..."
I agree, at the end of the day the facilities are not the problem, the leadership is. A coordinated strike against the leadership and some elements of the republican guard would set back their plans significantly. If it does not work follow up and hit the facilities.
Wait until their parliament is in session chanting America is the great satin and turn the place into rubble. Continue hitting every leadership location and command and control location until the last remaining leaders are living in a Sadam spider hole wetting their pants.
