It beggars belief that the US, with it's current military presence in the Gulf, aren't monitoring the attackers, and in all probability, could apprehend them before the attacks take place, but perhaps that doesn't fit with their political objectives.

From the Iranian mindset one could surmise that they already have the where-with-all to attack and do serious damage to Israel, but can't move on that until they have been attacked by the USA. Could all get very messy, and really screw up the Western economy as so much oil moves through that area.
