-Israel will use its new daisy cutter bombs supplied by the USA to strke nuclear infrastructure and smaller ordinance to attack Revolutionary Guard
barracks and offices.
-No matter how successful or not the attacks are, Iran retaliates by limited naval warfare, most importantly blocking the Gulf of Hormuz. Many
missles will be launched to Israel and US interests in the Gulf area. Iranian conventional force retalitation will be limited. They have no direct
means to assault Israel proper.
-Irans proxy forces Hezzbollah, and the Palestinian Hamas will attack. Eqypt, up until recently would have sat out, but now will join Iran and attack
Israel as well, or in the very least will refuse to provide any support.
-Turkey will attack Syria conventionally
-The US, under retaliatory attack from Iran, will in turn mobilize and begin a massive bombing campaign against Iran and Syria, and possibly Eqypt if
they join in. Amphibious special ops units will land in Iran.
-The war progresses. NATO itself may or may not mobilize depending on the level of hostilities.
-If Iran or Syria use chemical or biological weaponry or appear to be gaining the upper hand, Israel will retaliate using at first tactical nuclear
strikes on enemy forces, and if that fails, perhaps a strategic strike against Damascus or Tehran to show their resolve. Any use of nuclear weaponry
will bring China and perhaps Russia into the fray, most likely as "peacekeepers". But of course they will be securing their own oil interests.
Russia is quite self-sufficient in oil due to their Baku assets, but China desperately needs Irans oil.
-One side gains the upper hand. If Israel, im not sure how it will pan out. If Iran/Syria, and Tel Aviv appears to be in danger of falling, i worry
of a massive nuclear strike against Arab capitals. This will definately bring China and Russia in, undoubtedly ushering in world war
