As long as the US isn't drawn into another war, Israel can 'play' soldier all they want.
They will have a tough time against a heavily armed Iranian military regardless of all the US toys they've been given.
"One can say with some assurance that in the next year the use of force by the United States is highly unlikely," Bolton told AFP on the sidelines of the Herzliya conference on the balance of Israel's national security.
I really hope he's right and not just in the next year, but ever.
At least he is talking some common sense for once:
"That increases the pressure on Israel in that period of time... if it feels Iran is on the verge of acquiring that capability, it brings the decision point home to use force," he said.
The hawkish former diplomat said that after a US intelligence report published late last year that claimed Iran had suspended a nuclear weapons programme in 2003, the US was unlikely to take military action against it.
"The pressure is on Israel now after the National Intelligence Estimate because, I think, the likelihood of American use of force has been dramatically reduced," he said.
Its unlikely for the US to attack because our military is bogged down in other foreign wars and the civilian population isn't stupid enough to believe another war is a good idea.
Looks like nuclear weapons to me...

How can you continue to support Israel's offenses against their neighbors?
Is it because you still feel bad for them about the "Holocaust?" Well, newsflash, they're creating another genocide in their own country against Palestinians.
There comes a point where you have to move on from what happened in the past and focus on the present.
Iran is only trying to gain access to nuclear power for civilian uses, and if they are trying to enrich uranium for nuclear missiles, I have no problem with it.
Israel has nukes. They've committed far worse atrocities in their history as a nation than the Iranians have.
