WASHINGTON — Israeli officials say they won’t warn the U.S. if they decide to launch a pre-emptive strike against Iranian nuclear facilities, according to one U.S. intelligence official familiar with the discussions. The pronouncement, delivered in a series of private, top-level conversations, sets a tense tone ahead of meetings in the coming days at the White House and Capitol Hill.
Israeli officials said that if they eventually decide a strike is necessary, they would keep the Americans in the dark to decrease the likelihood that the U.S. would be held responsible for failing to stop Israel’s potential attack. The U.S. has been working with the Israelis for months to persuade them that an attack would be only a temporary setback to Iran’s nuclear program.

If they decide to deliver a knockout punch to Iran they can do it and we cannot stop them. It would be done with a declaration of war followed by an immediate attack with stealth cruise missiles armed with nuclear warheads. Millions will die but it will have the effect Israel wishes and will completely knock out Iran's ability to wage war against anybody. My best,
Israel already trying to make it seem like the US wouldn't be involved, or could be held responsible cause they supposedly didn't know. Yeah right.
The US is trying to show it is not a part of the agenda

Well , if its going to go down, then this is best for us, the US.
A unprovoked attack by Israel will be a declaration of war against Iran, and when Iran retaliates and Wipes Israel off the map, it will fit into the new Breaking Bad season, so I'll be ok with that.
Just leave the US out of this.

Nope was it a declaration of war against Iraq in the 80's or more recently '07 against Syria.
