Highly unlikely, the war drums have been rolling for years. Israel is an angel, Iran is the devil. Done deal.There are also active negotiations rather than just posturing by both sides. I'll rate the prospects of a deal as likely, if Bibi can't find a way torpedo the whole thing. With Romney, not so much.
Its much more than just intelligence when you use computer viruses to sabotage nuclear reactors. Cyberwarfare can do a lot more damage than leaking/stealing secret documents. As per 2011 Defense Authorization Act, "the United States reserves the right to retaliate with military force against a cyber attack".Cyber "warfare" has been an ongoing aspect of intelligence ever since it became possible, and propaganda is as old as the concept of nation states. Sheesh.
