Libya's air defenses

used alot of the same weapons Iran has, and were completely ineffective against modern aircraft and tactics, and the U.S. flys drones regularly over Iran, and has lost only 1 or 2. So you're right, I'd expect Israeli attacks to be mostly successful, and do not think the Iranians are good enough to repel an attack - they may shoot down a plane or two.

The real question is how the IDF will perform against Hezbollah in Lebanon. Last time Hezbollah gave them a pasteing, but this time, Hezbollah are more cut off from supplies, and the Israelis will push harder.

Israel is kind of cornered here. They won't make peace, their economy is being propped up. Iran is on the rise because of the failed US-Iraq war, and the rise of China.
