Re: " Thanks to "diplomacy," the chances of American military intervention against Iran have gone to zero, and of Israeli intervention nearly to zero, leaving the Saudis on their own. "
Given Netanyahu's recent UN speech, I very much doubt that the chances of Israeli intervention are "nearly zero." Indeed, I suspect the opposite, i.e., that the chances for Israel doing nothing are nearly zero.
