consequences of attacking Iran

The New Yorker has a piece by editor David Remnick on Israeli thinking about Iran, including a fascinating interview with Meir Dagan, who headed Mossad from 2002 to 2011. Dagan succinctly lays out the dangers of attacking Iran as follows:
An Israeli bombing would lead to a regional war and solve the internal problems of the Islamic Republic of Iran. It would galvanize Iranian society behind the leadership and create unity around the nuclear issue. And it would justify Iran in rebuilding its nuclear project...."
Dagan predicts a wider regional war with dangerous additional consequences.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
