Israel takes out Iran's offensive capabilities first.....then they bring in the bunker busters. And that is after they destroy Iran's ability to
communicate with command and control in the theater of battle.
In the "Mahdi"-scenario - the battle ground is not Iran at all. Iran is only a decoy/diversion to get air-superiority off from Israelis. Israel is
lured to reduce airforce capability for 6 hours. During this time they are subjected to a co-ordinated sneak attack.
In such a scenario, the chances are remarkably high for Israel to loose.
Remember also, Mahdi is the chief for all the muslims - so, here we go with a simulation of a joint strike by hostile neighbors, which have had
conflicts with Israel.
