I don't want this to happen, because among other things I think it could lead to a much larger conflict much as the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand at Sarajevo precipitated WWI.
On a related note, the news that Israel will not notify the US of any decision by its government to strike Iran suggests that Israel does not trust the US with that information, and that they fear that someone in the Obama Administration will warn Iran of an impending attack. The reason given by Israel--to decrease the likelihood that the U.S. would be held responsible for failing to stop Israel's potential attack--is plausible, but I think it's a smokescreen to allow the US to save face.
I hope I'm wrong, but we shall see.
