Former US Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, says a military strike against Iran will be the only way for Israel to shield itself, before Iran develops its nuclear weapons program.

The war drums are beating for an eventual attack on Iran. I've simply chalked this up to being inevitable. However, I believe the first strike will come from Israel rather than the United States. The US can't afford the political setbacks such an attack would bring.
An attack by Israel and an "successful" counter attack by Iran would be the leverage the US would need to launch their own invasion.

Now, I won't say that Israel doesn't have just cause to conduct such an operation. If in fact I had a crazy neighbor who had sworn to burn my house down and murder my family, I would not be terribly inclined to sit around until he made good on his threat.

If international law says that your property is not yours, you are fine with it?
Edit: Both sides have their issues. It is not right to pin this on one or the other.
