Hi, Barry

I don't foresee any Iranian victory. When Israel came short of destroying HAMAS in the last Gaza War, it looked to me like an Israeli defeat. Then the world community tried to hand HAMAS a propaganda victory, by branding Israel as a war criminal. Then the whole thing was forgotten, and the Egyptians "ethnically cleansed" (what it would have been called, had Israel done it) southern Rafah, and HAMAS was left with a big mess to blame Israel for; but more and more Gazans are blaming HAMAS instead, as they ought to.

It's a given that in the next war, Israel will defend itself and the world will condemn it. After that, live goes on. Iran might claim a Hizbullah victory after the Israelis trounce them; but the Iranians themselves will know that they have been backing losers. Meanwhile, Israel continues to fluorish with Kurdish oil, Leviathan gas and a healthy economy.
