My sister, Wendy sent me this article:
Four Day War
It narrates a hypothetical chain of events that could occur if Israel tries to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear arsenal.

I'm in Chicago today. Nice city, great architecture. I've been taking lots of pictures. I visited University of Chicago this afternoon. It is my favorite campus so far, it is really fantastic. I look forward to uploading my photos when I get back.
Very interesting article, Ted. I do agree that the chance of an Israeli strike on an Iranian nuclear facility is great. The only thing I beg to differ on is the Arab response.

First of all, regardless of how much they may be offended by such a strike, no Arab government would dare take on Israel conventionally. They learned that lesson the hard way.

The only option left, then, is large-scale terrorism. Israel has been preparing for years for such a threat and I doubt that an attack similar to the 9/11 attack would be successful given their precautions.

The author`s fear of a successful coup in Pakistan orchestrated by the top brass is, however, frighteningly probable. One need look no further than Pakistan`s short history to see the pattern.
