Israel attack Iran's nuclear facilities in late 2011 or early 2012, unilaterally, without US support
Um, the U.S. would support an attack on Iran. Do you not pay attention to the rhetoric of both parties? They both would support an attack on Iran, especially republicans. You're probably right about the first half of your sentence.
Iran responds by blocking the strait of Hormuz, interrupting the transportation of 40% of the worlds oil, initiating a global sell off, hyper inflation, and the collapse of the worlds economies.
This is likely, unless Iran gets Knocked, the F, Out.
Back in America, Israel will be blamed for the woes of the economy. The anger, frustration, and stress of the masses towards Israel will be augmented by the spin of a mainstream media which will attack Israel and Zionism more fervently than it has ever done before.
Ha! the mainstream media is run by Jews. This is a fact. They aren't going to criticize an attack on Iran. Do you watch the media? They have B.S. propaganda against Iran daily.

WASHINGTON – Senator Joe Biden, who was chosen by Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama to be his running mate in the upcoming US elections, has previously declared himself to be a Zionist. Calling Israel "the single greatest strength America has in the Middle East," he also revealed a Jewish connection in an interview last year.
During the interview conducted by the Jewish 'Shalom TV' Biden said, "I am a Zionist. You don't have to be a Jew to be a Zionist."
Mainstream media attacking Israel and Zionism??? Ummm who do you think owns those networks?
Do you not pay attention to the rhetoric of both parties? They both would support an attack on Iran, especially republicans.
Israel, however, has a history of ignoring U.S. opinion at moments like this. It struck nuclear reactors in Iraq in 1981 and in Syria in 2007 with no American go-ahead. In both cases, there was no serious damage to relations — and, for that matter, no regional reaction.
Iran, almost certainly, would be a very different case. That’s why most of Israel’s military and intelligence chiefs oppose action. But Netanyahu and Barak seem to be arguing the other side. And, for better or for worse, you can read all about it in the Israeli press.
You do not have to be Jewish to be a zionist. There are plenty of christians that claim to be zionists like America's Vice Prez, Joe Biden.
