Iran could launch a nuclear missle that 'surprise, surprise' nobody knew they had which was aimed at Tel Aviv but landed off course in southern Lebanon. Israel would swear they tracked the missile inbound from Iran. The US would say their satellites tracked the missile from takeoff in Iran to Tel Aviv. Syria would say, "We didn't see any missile". Whether the missile contained a nuclear bomb destined for Tel Aviv was launched from Iran or whether is was a suitcase nuke previously buried in Lebanon by US secret teams for just such an occasion, a retaliatory strike led by the U.S. and supported by Israel would give Iran 'a taste of their own medicine'. This is just one of a million possible scenarios for the middle east. I lived in Beirut for a year (in Hamra, the penthouse of the Perfect Apartments) in 1975 at the beginning of the first civil war. I know a little about the middle east. Which is to say I know nothing about the middle east.
