Is Israel Thinking About a Military Strike on Iran? History Tells Us It's Possible.
Iran shot down a U.S. drone on June 19, further escalating tensions between Iran and its adversaries.Relations with Iran have been worsening for months. In early May, one year after the United States withdrew from the nuclear deal negotiated in 2015 between Iran, the U.S., the European Union and five other countries, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that his country may also withdraw from the agreement, which limits its ability to develop nuclear weapons in exchange for lifting sanctions.In June, Rouhani announced that Iran will restart uranium enrichment, which could put the country on track to develop a nuclear weapon within a year. Rouhani's government insists its uranium will go to civilian nuclear power, not weapons.As a "deterrent" to Iran, the United States is sending an additional 1,000 troops to the Middle East.The U.S. is not the only country considering a military response in Iran."Israel will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons," said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on June 17.

Meet Scamp the Tramp, the messy-haired toothless canine just named the world's Ugliest Dog
