Israel has been in the news a lot lately and many believe that soon we could see Israel bomb Iran. Speculation was raised again yesterday when an Israeli official told Reuters that  Israel has requested the "bunker-buster" bomb. According to Reuters:

"Such a request was made" around the time of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Washington this week, the official said, confirming media reports.

But the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity given the sensitivity of the issue, played down as "unrealistic" Israeli reports that the United States would condition supplying the hardware on Israel promising not to attack Iran this year.

Do you think we will see Israel bomb Iran in 2012? What role will the United States play? Let us know your thoughts.
