    The patience counseled by Rand Corp in 2008 analysis (summarized below) is the only feasible road to peace, or even avoidance of catastrophe, but perhaps Bibi and his supporters don't want peace (at least until Israel's settlements on the West Bank are so numerous as to be irreversible).

    while the leadership has been hostile to the United States, Iranian society has evolved in ways friendly to the United States and U.S. interests. ...the numbers of young people entering the Iranian labor force are at an all-time high. ...greater use of markets and a more-vibrant private sector would contribute to the development of sources of political power independent from the current regime. ...need for patience. Even if favorable trends take root, it will take time for them to come to fruition.
