Of course if it comes to military intervention those nice Americans, Brits, French, Jordanians and Egyptians will send Israel to do their dirty work and pretend that they had no part in it. Just like last time. Just like always.
Over 50% in US, Egypt, Jordan, UK and France back military intervention to stop Iran
Pew Global Attitudes survey of 21 nations finds widespread opposition to Tehran’s nuclear program
Support for military intervention to thwart Iran’s nuclear program is 50 percent or higher in the US, in numerous European countries and even in Egypt and Jordan, according to a poll released Friday.
The Pew Global Attitudes survey of 21 nations found support for military intervention highest in the United States at 63 percent and lowest in Russia at 24 percent, while at least 50 percent of the people surveyed in Egypt, Jordan, Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland and the Czech Republic favored military action.

The Pew poll found that Iran’s actions in recent years have damaged its standing in the neighboring Sunni-majority countries of Egypt and Jordan, where favorability ratings are low, support for military intervention reached 50 percent and approval of strengthening economic sanctions is high.
