    Deterrence keeps the peace.

    Iran should be given to understand that if it makes the first move toward an attack on Israel, there will be a concerted military response by Israel and by the US, resulting in a regime change at very least.  

    And despite his rather quiet way of conducting these things, Obama's damn good at war.

    Further, the Iranian regime should be given to understand that eliminationist rhetoric, even if intended only for domestic consumption as some kind of asinine propaganda, makes it look like ignorant fools in the eyes of the world, and like blasphemers against the words of The Prophet Mohammed in the Islamic world.  

    Beyond that, whatever covert intelligence means can be used to develop information with which to make Ahmadinejad and other key Iranian leaders look bad in the eyes of the Iranian people, should be used relentlessly.  Photos of them in embarrassing positions and otherwise looking like impotent incompetent fools might be a good place to start.

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
