you are all looking in the wrong place; as usual.
a war, the one you were expecting, did begin on 3/22...but its some sort of proxy war occurring most notably in Mali.
Surely you don't think anyone is wants a direct conflict in Iran...its somewhat developed with large scale oil production facilities and everything and has an educated population...if you fight in Mali instead, the cost of rebuilding after the conflict ends on 7/8/2012 will be far less; as the battles will occur in the middle of the desert.
its going to be a pretty big fight too, when fighting begins on May 10...13 regional military chiefs, with European support are preparing to move into the north of the country and all the Islamists are on their way.
but you'll all be looking at Iran...

The USS Enterprise joined the USS Abraham Lincoln to help patrol the Persian Gulf and U.S. naval officials said no signs of aggression had been noted.
