When the UN refused to agree to the severe sanctions that the U.S. wanted, Obama responded with typical Bush flair and went solo. The new U.S. sanctions against Iran — signed into law by Obama on July 1st — are an unmistakable act of war.
If fully enforced, Iran’s economy will be potentially destroyed.
I frankly don't think that the sanctions will be in place all that long before there is an Israeli-US military attack against Iran.
All the pieces, both in terms of strategy and military hardware, appear to be pretty well in place.
All that remains is some suitable initiatory event to be used as the"justification" for such an attack.
