That is some seriously brilliant speculating. But it begs a scarry quesiton. If Iran is trying to get Syria invaded, why? If I understand correctly,
Iran needs 4 years to complete its heavy water reactor and can't start enriching Uranium until that is complete. They'd never get the bomb in time
if that's the case.
I hate to agree with vialls and their antisemetic propaganda, but the most sensible reason for Iran to want America attacking Syria would be to get a
nice big concentration of US troops to enter the Persian Gulf where they can be sunk without expecting it. Could Iran really be stupid enough to bait
America into a fight? Granted this would be their best chance at winning, but I really can't imagine it going very well for them after the initial
Of course it's all speculation. If they are closer to the bomb, or closer to hammering out a deal for Russian troops to establish bases in Iran, or
any other such thing, then it would make perfect sense for them to set it up between Syria and America.
How's this sit with you; maybe Iran thought Israel would be coming to bomb that reactor soon and wanted to escalate tensions to the point that Israel
couldn't attack Iran without ending up at war with Syria? Just buying a little extra time to get air defenses in place maybe?
