Analysis: A Mideast nuclear war?

This brief Middle East Times article speculates in rough
figures the destruction from a nuclear war between Iran
and Israel. Certainly, with Iran capable of making nuclear
weapons and having the ICBMs to deliver them, such a war
would be a constant threat. Even if the world were lucky
enough that this war would be contained in the Middle East,
the economic disaster, worldwide, would be unavoidable.
I reckon that neither the U.S., nor any European powers
will set a serious ultimatum to Iran, and it will be Israel who
will initiate the next Gulf War with air strikes on Iranian
nuclear facilities.
