The Most Dangerous Game

Israel is representing that they are prepared to launch a military strike against Iran before the end of the year aimed at disabling Iran’s nuclear program. It is important to note that that if they wanted to they certainly could have kept such plans secret because (insert snide remark here about Jews controlling the media). My point is that we have no idea if they are actually going to attack at this point, they are simply advertising that they are going to, which is not necessarily the same thing. This posturing leads me to believe that, through some calculated game theory predictions, they are betting on eliciting a response that favors their interests, not from Iran, but from the US. The danger with game theory in regards to nuclear powers, however, is that even a 90% accurate prediction may not be good enough and at this point nobody can tell how this is going to play out. Everyone should be keeping an eye on this.
