Ballistic programMain article: Iran's missile forces
On November 2, 2006, Iran fired unarmed missiles to begin 10 days of military simulations. Iranian state television reported "dozens of missiles were fired including Shahab-2 and Shahab-3 missiles. The missiles had ranges from 300 km to up to 2,000 km. Iranian experts have made some changes to Shahab-3 missiles installing cluster warheads in them with the capacity to carry 1,400 bombs." These launches come after some United States-led military exercises in the Persian Gulf on October 30, 2006, meant to train for blocking the transport of weapons of mass destruction.[30] Iran is also believed to have started the development of an ICBM/IRBM missile project, known as Ghadr-110 with a range of 3000 km; the program is paralleled with advancement of a satellite launcher named IRIS.....

Weapons of mass destructionMain articles: Iran and weapons of mass destruction and Science and technology in Iran
Iran ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention in 1997. Iranian troops and civilians suffered tens of thousands of casualties from Iraqi chemical weapons provided by western countries specifically Germany during the 1980-88 Iran–Iraq War. As a result, Iran has publicly stood against the use of chemical weapons, making numerous vitriolic comments against Iraq's use of such weapons in international forums.

Even today, more than eighteen years after the end of the Iran–Iraq War, about 30,000 Iranians are still suffering and dying from the effects of chemical weapons employed by Iraq during the war. The need to manage the treatment of such a large number of casualties has placed Iran’s medical specialists in the forefront of the development of effective treatment regimes for chemical weapons victims, and particularly for those suffering from exposure to mustard gas.[31]

Iran ratified the Biological weapons Convention in 1973.[32] Iran has advanced biological and genetic engineering research programs supporting an industry that produces vaccines for both domestic use and export.....snip~

If the Saud allow the Israel to fly over them.....then Palestine will begin launching rockets into Israel. The Shia in Iraq will attack the Sunni in Iraq. Think Syria is doing any damage now to the Sunni. Let the Saud or any Sunni Country that assists, and the Syrians will begin wiping out the Sunni enmasse. Hamas will become active. Worst of all, Hezbollah will come out from hiding and go full force at the Israelis.

Palestinian rockets are but a nuisance at best. Israel could effectively demolish any and all Palestinian resistance in a war time scenario pretty quickly. Once the shit really hits the fan the kid gloves come off, Israel tells the world community (like their is such a thing) to fuck off, and Hezbollah is finished.

Which would require the Israelis declaring War on the Palestinians. Then Syria is in! Israel kicking the shit out of the Egypt, and Syria is one thing. Not Iran and Syria. Not All the Shia. Plus Iran isn't worried if the Sunni Jump in.

If / when it got to that point I think U.S. forces would become involved, at least air support. Not as if our forces aren't already there. I don't see China or Russia doing anything.

What about Israel using U.S. controlled airfields in Iraq? They could refuel and rearm there if we ended up as a coalition.

That's probably one reason we retain those bases. Better still, the Sauds must know that.

Yes. As Peter mentioned, it seems possible the Israeli AF could refuel at bases in Saudi Arabia with permission, but they'd still have to get back to Israel to rearm. Using bases in Iraq would change everything and make quick repeated runs a real possibility.

The problem for those that want peace is that for both Israel and Iran it makes sense to hit extremely hard when they decide to strike, and the confrontation appears inevitable.
