New Coalition Against Iran

I would like to propose a new coalition to stop Iran from going nuclear.
Frankly, I'm surprised that governments and the big media are not suggesting or promoting this. Maybe some are talking about it behind closed doors. I certainly hope so.

Since many other countries in the Middle East besides Israel would like to shut Iran down, why don't these countries form a coalition with Israel and the US and anyone else who would like to join this extremely important fight against by far, the largest problem facing the world right now?

If Iran goes nuclear, it will be the end of the world as we know it. They won't have to drop a bomb on us for us to feel their wrath. Just knowing that they can on a moments notice will turn the world upside down. They will be able to wreak havoc on the world simply with the threat of throwing a nuclear bomb at any adversary. So stick you head in the sand all you want, let others worry about it, but do nothing and Iran will prevail and then it will be too late.

Back to the coalition. I know it will surely made odd bed fellows, but wealthy, oil rich countries like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, etc. as well as other Arab countries like Jordan, Iraq and others (Egypt, Lebanon) fear Iran at least as much as do the Israelis.

So why not have these countries join the coalition? Of course the US could lead it and decide who does what. For example, the Israeli's could provide the intelligence and communications while the US could provide the bunker bombs and the Saudi's could pay for it all, etc.

This would be a win/win for the world. Firstly it would increase the chances of success. It could open the door to better relations with Israel and it's Arab neighbours. Obama would look great to his Arab sponsors like the Saudi's who's feet he continues to kiss. It would put an end to the giant rift between Israel and Obama.

It would also pose the first serious threat to Iran and give them 1 last chance to give up their nuclear ambitions. Of course it would also challenge the world to do the right thing and join in.

Like world II proved, evil prevails when good people do nothing.

Check out this video. Although it was done at the time of the war with Libya, it equally applies to Iran. Even more so.
