While debating a unilateral strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, Israeli decision-makers must take Iranian citizens into account. Although there is widespread government dissent and resistance in Iran, an Israeli strike could force the Iranian people to “rally ‘round the flag” and support their otherwise hated regime. An Israeli attack turned into an Iranian rallying cry would be an ideal scenario for the Iran's rouge regime. An Israeli strike on Iran, unlike an American-led strike, does not pose an imminent threat to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamene'i or President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. These leaders realize that such an attack will not jeopardize their personal safety. And personal safety is there only concern. What keeps these two men up at night is their fear of sharing the fate of Mubarak, Ben Ali, Saleh, or Gaddafi.
