One sign that tells us war between Iran and Israel may be imminent is Iran putting their nuclear material in one location at Frodo, and we have it. Iran is starting, or some estimates speeding up, placing nuclear material in one location. Israeli leaders have stated this is one of those possible red lines, which means war is more likely. I want to put the pieces together, in my humble opinion, to try to explain the drama that is being played out, and the likely result.
First, American officials visited Israel a month or so ago in great numbers. It was a weekly train of officials talking to Israeli political and military personnel. The talks were generally kept quiet, except a few who leaked out supposedly secret conversations. I believe the conversations are hard to put together, but events may shed more light than any leak. Shortly thereafter we had over a dozen Egyptian soldiers killed in the Sinai, which propelled the Egyptian president to sack the secular military leadership for militant Muslim Brotherhood leadership, which is an enemy of Israel. I believe the US and Israel knew the coup was coming, and that events would get quite serious. The Egyptians now have tanks and other military hardware in the Sinai as if they are preparing for war. Egyptian President Mursi is scheduled to visit Iran on the heels of the military buildup at a time Iran is moving nuclear material to Frodo. Frodo is where it will all come together for a bomb. Iran and Egypt, in my opinion, coordinated their moves as Iranian and Russian soldiers have been placed in Syria. US officials knew this, and trying to keep Israel from bombing Iran.
I believe the next steps are a full nuclear breakthrough at Frodo into a nuclear bomb, and increased tensions in the Middle East. Israel knows this. Iran wants to use the American elections as an opportunity to make its first nuclear bomb, because Iran knows the time between now and November is very difficult for the US to make any major policy moves in the Middle East, especially with Obama in power. Israel also knows this, and may use this void to their advantage, which Iran is acutely aware. The chess pieces are moving fast lately, and will continue to do so. The time for war is approaching. Any event can delay or speed it up. Time will tell.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met Friday with US Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), who is visiting the Middle East and told him, "Just yesterday, we received additional proof of the fact that Iran is continuing to make accelerated progress toward achieving nuclear weapons while totally ignoring international demands."
Netanyahu was referring to a news item in the New York Times that said international nuclear inspectors are about to report that Iran has installed hundreds of new centrifuges in recent months and may also be speeding up production of nuclear fuel.
Citing "diplomats and experts briefed on the findings," the Times said almost all of the new equipment is being installed in a deep underground site on a military base near Qom (Frodo) that is considered virtually invulnerable to military attack. "It would suggest," the paper explained, "that a boast by senior Iranian leaders late last month ? that the country had added upward of 1,000 new machines to its installation despite Western sabotage ? may be true."

"From a technical military point of view, Israel does not require any kind of coordination with the Americans," writes Lord regarding the plan for a raid on Iran. "There is a concern that the Americans will learn of the date for an attack and try to prevent it in different ways. The Americans have not given the Israelis a feeling that they are true partners in the operative arena, in the past two years. On the contrary, the IDF has identified preventive American activity against an Iran operation."
"This is particularly evident in the grave matter of the leaks regarding Azerbaijan in the past, about the Kurdish region, and recently in the publication of the flight paths to the target. All this is being produced by our ally, with the cooperation of one of the largest media platforms in Israel, which serves and assists the Obama administration against the government of Israel. The Americans are the ones who are feeding some of the arch-pundits with damaging information."
