Israelis Grow Confident that Strike on Iran's Nuclear Facilities Will Not Lead to Widespread War. According to Bloomberg, one conclusion that key Israeli officials have reached is that a strike on six to eight Iranian nuclear facilities will not lead, as is generally assumed, to all-out war. This argument holds that the Iranians might choose to cover up an attack, in the manner of the Syrian government when its nuclear facility was destroyed by the Israeli air force in 2007. An Israeli strike would not focus on densely populated cities, so the Iranian government might be able to control, to some degree, the flow of information about it. Some Israeli officials believe that Iran's leaders might choose to play down the insult of a raid and launch a handful of rockets at Tel Aviv as an angry gesture, rather than declare all-out war.

Russia says Iran will produce nuclear weapons if attacked. According to the AFP, Russia warned that Iran would have no option but to develop nuclear weapons if it came under attack from either the United States or Israel over its contested atomic program. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, "The CIA and other US officials admit they now have no information about the Iranian leadership taking the political decision to produce nuclear weapons. But I am almost certain that such a decision will surely be taken after (any) strikes on Iran."

The Bible says in Matthew 24:6-7 that in the last days, "And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places."
