rigging the election? entirely plausible, given the us' proclivity for foreign (and maybe domestic) election tampering, and maybe even likely when you consider the current state of geopolitics and the importance of this election.
"the start of the end of the Middle East crisis"? i don't know... i'm not sure what the ramifications of further us involvement in the middle
east would be, and, really, we're already overextended. about israel attacking iran, since it seems like, whenever israel has a 'big job' to do,
they outsource it to the us, i doubt they would even be the ones to attack iran- it would probably be, nominally, "another battle in the american
'war on terror'." and i bet that's how they'll phrase it, too.
but, could that lead, eventually and only after a lot of carnage, to "the end of the Middle East crisis? maybe.
