Earlier this week I finally decided how the world finally came around to doing something about Iran in the early 2030s. I wrote it into General Sasha Klein's lines as she talks to John's son, Tag, the USA JAG liaison to an IDF Commando unit that has already infiltrated Iran.
The issue centers around Iran's alternate target list for their ICBMs, with side issues of Israel and Gaza lving in peace and becoming major trading partners (in the future, national trading partners are measured by transactions between individuals across political borders). There is also an issue with Iran needing to hit targets outside of their missile capabilities and they have already launched their alternate delivery system.
Note: These details are NOT in the pre-release draft that is available now. They will only be available in the final publication.
