No we cannot know for certain.  But some things we can be pretty sure about.  If the Americans go for the "bomb them into the stone age" option there will be an enormous shortfall in American hegemony. This is something that we lefties who have no illusions at all about imperialism can have trouble comprehending.

I do not expect America to pay a heavy military price for the coming attack on Iran. But in political terms, despite the opportunism and studpidity of the Iranian regime, any attack will be greeted with genuine dismay from around the world.
