If it is about Iran, why not let the Israelis go after Iran. That has the merit of going after the cause instead of the symptom along with the additional benefit of not involving us in a civil war.

Israel cannot go after Iran. As long as Iran has mobile missiles situated in Syria, Israel would suffer a devastating counterattack from those missiles if they attacked Iran. Iran has purchased state of the art Chinese mobile ballistic missiles which “Iron Dome” cannot stop. Also it is very doubtful that Israel has the conventional capability to effectively attack and destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities. Even if the US military were fully involved any attack would have the potential to be a US Navy disaster. The Iranians have fortified the Persian Gulf with shore to ship missiles. Our big blue water ships would be at grave risk in the narrow confines of the Persian Gulf. As terrible as it will be, IMHO Iran will now get its nuclear weapons.
