    Any major attack on Iran by Israel will ignite a regional war that will likely drive energy costs so high as to cause widespread hunger around the world.

      an attack could be followed with the same thing that followed the attack on the Osirak reactor in 1981 -- which BTW Israel was totally justified in carrying out. That is, nothing at all would follow.

      Or Iran could invade a neighbor. It really doesn't have the capability of sending a large army to Israel -- its Navy couldn't even rescue Iranians from the Somali pirates. But an Iranian intervention in support of the Taliban in Afghanistan could be a disaster for the US. That is reason #1 why the US needs to get out of Afghanistan, and fast.
