Report Ties Israel to New Iran Sanctions

The United States and Europe may have imposed new sanctions on Iran, and China may have reduced oil imports from the nuclear-arming nation, in response to Israeli pressure, as reported here.

Assuming that's true, a key question is this: at some point in the sanctions/strangling process, will Iran make good on its threats to attack first--i.e. to strike the U.S. and Israel preemptively? Most important, is Iran really capable of "burning Tel Aviv" and attacking "U.S. interests" globally--including the U.S. homeland itself?
