DF cited "Washington sources" saying "White House and Israeli emissaries (agree) that Israel will hold back" until post-election. Netanyahu, of course, wouldn't dare attack Iran without US approval and support. Threatening otherwise is meaningless bluster.
In the mean time, Obama established a "special team." It'll set out an "end game for Iran."
It was set out long ago. Only its timing is unknown. It's also subject to change. So are tactics to achieve objectives. That's how wars are planned and waged even after launching them.
Obama and Netanyahu are ruthless and irresponsible. They're mad dog leaders. Both threaten humanity. Anything ahead is possible. Risking regional conflict able to go global is madness.
Watch for diplomatic toing and froing to play out ahead of bombs away in some form. It's practically written in the stars. It's been in Pentagon plans for years. The same goes for Syria and other targeted countries. Washington has a long list.
