Who said that they'd have to blow entire infrastructure up? The weak links are the personel (the scientists and engineers) and out-of-the-way facilities holding nuclear material and ballistic missile parts (the Iranians wouldn't have put all their eggs in one basket).



the scientists and engineers that need to be killed to stop the programs are the russians and i would like to see israel even hurt 1 hair on the russian scientists and engineers and see what then happenes to israel in retaliation. iran if it looses iranian scientits and engineers can just replace them again by sending them to university for about 3-5 years whats israel going to do destory all the universities,books,teachers etc... in Iran becuase thats the only way they can stop the program, you can kill the poeple they will just train more, you can destory the nucluer power plants russia will just build more becuase irans cut a deal witht hem to build more plants.

its a loose loose situation for israel and america the only way to completly stop the program is to occupy the country and make sure all covert nucluer operations have ceased. otherwise you will never get the job done.

A combined NATO force would roll over Iran like a steam roller. Without a bunch of allies they wouldn't even stand even a remote chance. NATO was created to deal with a juggernaut that was Warsaw Pact Iran would be a joke.

NATO members are only compelled to react collectively if a member state is attacked in EUROPE or NORTH AMERICA. So, if Iran attacked NATO in Afghanistan then NATO would not be compelled to react.

Iran would not last five minutes against a First World military let alone a collective of First World militaries. Iran would be reduced to the stone-age by airpower alone and although may resist for a day or two would have little hope of sustained defence.

Iran, however (IMHO) would not be easy to invade and have already proved themselves able and more than willing to fund mayhem and mischief - in the form of terrorism and instability. This is their defence and the West knows this.

I think that Israel will be restrained. The current arena is Iraq. Iran is trying to assert themselves in a Middle East in turmoil and the nuclear card is just one aspect of this megalomania. Iran fears a democratic neighbour and that will be their eventual downfall.

Regards

I don't think it would be practical for israel to attack iran as it has to cross quite a bit of real estate to get there, whillst, the us has the B-2, and if nescecary, the B-52 to do the same job, with their long range capabilities. and IMO, if iranian forces attacked us forces in afganistan or iraq, that could be considered an attack on NATO
