It would be extremely foolish for Israel to attack Iran.
If Israel were to attack Iran with regular bombs, including “buster bombs,” all Israel would do would be to delay the development of atomic weapons by Iran by a few years.
When, not if, Iran develops atomic weapons, Iran could launch them at Israel to overcome the humiliation it previously suffered. Nothing humanity could do would prevent Iran’s action. If Israel wants to survive, it must use its atomic weapons against Iran such that Iran will never be able to develop atomic weapons.
If such action by Israel were to cause World War III with the deaths of billions, so be it. The cause of those deaths would not be Israel, but all of the nations of the world that permitted Iran to even come close to developing weapons of mass destruction when the stated aim of Iran was to whip Israel off the face of the map, killing every Israeli.
