Haaretz: Netanyahu asked to clarify his 'intention to lead Israel to war with Iran'

"Israel's opposition (Kadima) head Shaul Mofaz sent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a letter on Monday demanding an urgent meeting on the Iranian issue. "I ask that this meeting be convened without delay, and address your intention to lead Israel to war," Mofaz wrote. According to law, the prime minister must brief the opposition head on a monthly basis."

It appears that Benjamin Netanyahu wants to unilaterally start a war with Iran before the US elections.

Rightardia doubts that the attack would be successful without US bomber and aerial tanker (refueling) support, which is unlikely.

Netanyahu has stated such an attack could continue for one month.

Both Israeli air and ground forces would be involved. Israel has three special forces paratrooper brigades and all three would likely be involved in the attack.

Such an attack is a risky venture and it could escalate to a middle east regional war.
