Suppose we went ahead and struck Iran, do you think Israel should work with us as a partner? Can we have Israel strike Syria and Lebanon to make sure that it keeps them busy while we fight the Iranians? Itâ€™s our only solid ally in that region right?

As for the "if we don't fight them there, we will fight them here", that is team building material for the guys on the ground. It is how leadership gets folks motivated to go out every day. They keep hearing it and finally believe it.
