One other thing.
The Ruling elites of Iran are fragmenting. Further sanctions shall push them further to the brink (which explains the regimes need for nuclear power to show their own people that they can still deliver) and hopefully expedite the disintergration.
However if Israel attacks i fear this will bring all of Iran together in a way that would not have been pssible before and give the ruling elites a new lease of life.
Very good point, so it's a win win for them.
Glad we've been able to talk about this because now I can create a thread dedicated to the topic which I think is deserved. (I've stolen the thread title from the Guardian)
