You suggest that Iran is not some piddling Arab country, and thus the assumption that Iran is somehow superior militarily?
I recall Iran and Iraq going at it.
Iran didn't do so well.
Now follow my simple logic:
Iraq slaughtered Iranians, (and Iraq is a much smaller Arab country) and Iran did very poorly against Iraq.
By contrast, the US went through the same Iraqi military like crap through a goose, while Iran against this same military couldn't accomplish diddly squat. (Dying by the tens of thousands is not a true military virtue)
What, precisely, would that suggest to you that the US would have any trouble against Iran if called to?

Shouldn't surprise anyone. As the saying goes "actions speak louder then words". It just reconfirms what we have all been suspecting.
Now how will Obama help facilitate this plan or derail it only time can tell... we'll see how compromised he is by the powers that be. Factoring in our faltering economy and it's ties to oil, the military-industrial-complex and federal reserve... a battle with Iran might just be a necessary evil to keep our sinking ship a float.

who let slip a rare expression of compassion for Palestinians by an American politician:
Nobody's suffering more than the Palestinian people
he famously said at a small gathering in Iowa. What ensued in the 10 months between then and now is an object lesson in the intense pressure under which presidential candidates stake out ground on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the extraordinary effectiveness of the self-styled "pro-Israel" movement. This high-pressured atmosphere goes a long way to explaining why the candidate with the most liberal foreign policy views went out of his way to take a hard line on Gaza.

Nothing, and I mean nothing with Israel is left to chance. They all know that with precise planning, comprehensive intelligence, and precise execution along an unanticipated line of approach, their endeavors are successful.
The Israeli intelligence probably knows more about Iran's nuclear program than the Iranian President Imajerkoff.
Their plans are constantly updated, and they are able to not only anticipate, but absolutely rely on those around them.
