Regarding the nuclear situation in Iran, Kevin Drum writes as if it will be a growing concern for quite some time, with nothing done until this summer or fall. However, I've read more than a few news items mentioning that Israel may act on this matter much sooner -- say by March. The pre-emptive air strikes are expected to involve cruise missiles and F15E bombers.

What's scary is assuming it happens, what will happen after such a strike? What other nations will be sucked in and which side will they take? Will nuclear weapons eventually be employed? Bush playing the bully vs. hapless Iraq is one thing, but could this eventual conflict be WAY out of his league?
