I fear that that the mullahs will be appeased even by the US. I hope I am wrong

No war is needed in Iran, just help the Iranian people who are fighting to overthrow the regime.

I wouldn't want a war either Stefania, but given that the US probably doesn't want another Korea on its hand, especially one run by islamic fundementalists, well, they will probably bomb it. Or they will just use Israel to do it, the way Israel bombed the Iraqi nuclear reactor in 1984.

Here is the tircky part though: Ahmeddinjad doesn't seem like the type who likes his authority challanged or his country attacked. So If Israel bombs his reactor, I have a feeling he would feel the massive need to retaliate. A war between Iran and Israel will inflame the whole region. So, I dunno!

I guess you are right, the soloution is to help the iranians to overthrow the regime. Why don't they just assassinate the Mullahs? A suicidebombing that takes their lives would give the whole thing a very ironic twist me thinks. No?

I think Iran will get political reaction not just from US, but also Europe, don't even be surprised if even China weighs in on this- generally they are very quick on these matters, but they don't want the whole region armed with nukes.
