I'm not particularly happy topic but a necessary one hot top on your list is the Israeli -- -- conflict where -- -- things going.
Well the Israelis say that -- around mid summer is when we have to at least delay the Iran a nuclear program very significantly because that's the point at which they feel that the option of the strike is no longer viable.
And the other thing to considers -- -- there's a presidential election happening in Iran over the summer.
And so that could cause a political crisis and if you're a Middle Eastern -- wanted to show their strength and for spike doing something that's how you handle political crisis -- -- Middle Eastern leader you pick a fight with Israel.
And how do you see Israel responding then how do you see -- Israel.
Trying to prevent things from happening next summer.
Well they're going to have to engage in Covert actions to try and keep delaying this program.
Then hopefully you delay the program enough that the regime collapses one -- and last year we saw those cyber attacks do you see it more in that or something more direct and physical.
It did beat either there have been -- several mysterious explosions that have affected Iran in nuclear facilities and considering how seriously the Israelis take this threat.

Everyone focuses on the -- between Israel and Iran but there's.
Also -- between the Arabs especially Saudi Arabia and Iran where they are fighting for control of the region.
And the Iranians have targeted through cyber attacks the Saudi is full of oil infrastructure which directly impacts our economy -- something that we can't handle very well as of the fact that they put that on their target list now is extremely significant and finally mother Muslim Brotherhood we saw their -- eject looking to strengthen elsewhere.
