Yup that's true, plus other countries are coming to Iran's aid so that she is no completely isolated. There's a shift there, small but it's something.
But there was some Israeli military guy, I saw a few weeks ago, claiming Israel didn't have the capacity to carry out what would be needed to do the job. He wants America to do.
I also have read that Obama has told Israel to lay off Iran until after the election. So I am not completely sold on him not being for an attack by them.
