US won't attack Iran

Washington Not Considering Pre-emptive Attack Against Iran - Eli Leon

Israel is mistaken if it thinks the U.S. will attack Iran, says David Wurmser, former adviser on the Middle East to U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney. "Right now, the cavalry is not going to ride to Israel's side, even at the last moment." "There is nobody of influence within the establishment or bureaucracy in Washington, let alone abroad, seriously arguing for pre-emptive action, nor are there any factors in the next half year - or even longer - which will change that."

The U.S. will be willing to attack only when it is afflicted by "something much worse and more personally affecting," Wurmser says. "Until then, sadly, our allies are on their own." (Israel Hayom)
