23. Israeli surrogates?
I would think it more likely that he could unleash Israel and call it an International Effort to remove an authoritarian government, destroy WMD, and all the usual patriotic blather. That it would do nothing to stop "terrorism" and, in fact, add 67 million angry Iranians to the enemies list, is of course secondary to stirring up a mindless public to "support our (or, Israel's) troops".
