Pepe Escobar: Go ahead, Bibi - drop the bomb

The Obama administration seems to have realized that it's impossible to prevent Tehran from acquiring a nuclear capability by force. It also seems to have realized that to keep the illusion of a military option on the table amounts to a bald-faced lie. But that all leaves out of the box the real, supreme consequence of Iran becoming a nuclear power, at least in the eyes of the Iranian leaders: it would be the end of the American threat over the country. If pressured and cornered, Tehran, with the IRGC controlling the nuclear program, would go all the way. Israel, in this big picture, is just a minor detail.
