IMPLICATIONS OF AN ISRAELI STRIKE ON IRAN, AND MORE FROM CRS

The factors that could influence an Israeli decision to attack Iranian nuclear targets and the implications of such an act were assessed in a new report from the Congressional Research Service. The report surveys the multiple dimensions of the issue at length, though it does not appear to provide much new information or original analysis. See Israel: Possible Military Strike Against Iran's Nuclear Facilities, March 27, 2012:
