It is inevitable.
Consider the issue of the Iraq war based on WMDs and surprise surprise we found none.
This damages public confidence but by then our boys were on the ground and the insurgents are killing them, new story to whitewash over the old.
Consider Iran and the implications required to secure Khuzestan. You cannot win these wars by air power. Afghanistan and Iraq is proof of this.
These are countries trained in years and years of guerrilla warfare and low munition capability, meaning Iran will just lock down and wait for boots
on the ground.
Iran also presents the possibility of a true Jihad type flare across Syria - Iraq - Afghanistan. The west attacking the Persians is a call to arms
for anyone with faith in defeating the evil that oppresses them.
While at the same time we on tv are fed that we are to show the light against these poor people evil dictators. Considering Iraq today and Iraq with
saddam - i bet were he alive today - he would win the deomcratic vote of the iraqi people
Think of the passions and overwhelming patriotism created by 3000 deaths in 911 - which i am sorry - but for a city that dense - and for a 2
buildings to fall and 4 aircraft - that is a pathetic body count.
Maximum disruption minimum casualties is the revelation of all subsequent terror attacks since 911.
Consider then how the USA will feel when 150 000 of its citizens get vaporised. An immediate state of emergency, immediate anger and outrage. AND -
the willingness to ask every american to come forward and put an end to the war on terror once and for all.
Iran requires boots on the ground - to cope with the entire region igniting and to keep Israels borders secure. The only way to gain that
commitment is to win the hearts and the minds of the people.
So nuke em. Detonate a device in a middle american city where it will not be a hard hit to financial institutions, banks etc. But it will take
3000 people is nothing - its hardly a blip - yet look at the fever the fear the passion the media builds over the event. Consider the power of
150000 or more americans being vaporised live on CNN.
You will create the call for heroes - you will create the golden age of WW2 style propaganda - men will have a chance to be men again. And war
will sweep the middle east finally removing every annoying item next to precious oil and gas reserves.
You think russia and china will be against this ? You think they are not involved already? You think they dont want stability and central global
control of oil and gas resources?
America has the resource and the ability - all it needs is to convince americans to commit to a largescale war. You think it will be enough to say
Iran are supplying explosives? You think it will be enough to have a few car bombs ? Or when americans see one of their cities core wiped out in a
flash - how committed will they be to ending terrorism, accepting ID chips/cards - coming together to do whatever it takes.
It will take time and needs a very strong president in place to push them forth to take the middle east.
Perhaps - when a terminator can stand for the seat of power
Hasta la vista baby
