What’s at Stake?

Many are concerned that the tension between the two nations will erupt into an all out war with far-reaching effects for the region and the world. Should Israel take preemptive action against Iran with or without the U.S.’s help, the fear is that the attack will spur equally devastating counter attacks and terrorist attacks that could prolong the conflict.

 

If the U.S. is involved, then come concerns over terrorist attacks on U.S. soil and the attack of U.S. troops nearby in Afghanistan, U.S. ships in the Persian Gulf or crippling U.S. oil interests in the Middle East.
