The War to Begin All Wars
So what do we do about Iran. They are blatantly ignoring everyone's demands that they stop creating nuclear weapons. America is really not in a position to do anything about it, the rest of the world isn't going to be interested in cutting off the planet's fourth largest supply of oil to even try and threaten them with a sanction. If they do get weapons, we have the power to make their country glow in the dark for quite some time, but that would require truly unprescendented pre-emptive action that even the U.S. would have a hard time swallowing, because all Iran needs is one bomb to obliterate Israel. Unlike the Russians, the Iranian government doesn't really give a crap about the loss of innocent human life and wouldn't hesitate to set off a nuclear war. So how does it play out? I'll tell you. When Sharon finally dies, a successor who has the courage to stand up to the United States and the rest of the world will be named just in time to utilize Israel's overwhelming capability to turn the entire country of Iran into dust. Then, in the following twenty years, the world will begin to see the true meaning of the phrase "Middle Eastern Conflict", as many more Muslims begin to side with radical clerics who now can back up what they have been saying all along, that Israel is evil and is the mortal enemy of Islam and humanity. The strength of terrorist groups in the region will increase exponentially, and Bush's "road map to peace," will end up in a garbage can at a gas station near the White House. If I'm right about anything, I sure hope it's not this. Maybe Russia should stop selling nuclear fuel to Iran now. Just a thought.
