The Israelis have been pushing to attack Iran for some time now as has their powerful lobby in Washington. It was just last March in fact that AIPAC held was at the Washington Convention Center hosting the rich and powerful all shouting 'Get Iran!'
And now the Saudis too are pushing much more strongly, and practically in public, to 'Get Iran!'; however more conflicted the Royal Family may be at this point.
Meanwhile the largely Jewish and right-wing Zionist Washington Neocons are salivating at the prospect that striking Iran is within view...even as they perspire a bit that the larger war is still not a definite certainty.
Meanwhile, even as the Israelis continue to ratchet up the pressure and publish studies and articles of this kind, CNN this afternoon has broadcast an alarming program focusing on the unprecedented US/UK naval build-up near Iran and specifically saying that build-ups of this kind are what usually proceed the outbreak of real war.
