Does anyone else think that a US strike on Iran would result in nothing less than immediate regional war?
I believe that as soon as Iran is attacked their allies in the region would immediately target US interests and their ally Israel. This includes
shiite militias in Iraq, Hamas in Palestine, Hezbollah in Lebanon, the State of Syria, and other terrorist factions across the world. This may also
include terror cells already in place inside Europe and the US. Upheaval in Nuclear armed Pakistan could occur, and there would definitely be
repercussions in Afghanistan. We are now talking about a huge land mass, stretching from the Mediterranean all the way to Pakistan. I fully believe
there could be a massive breakdown including civil war throughout this region, especially in the heart of the mid east. Places like Lebanon,
Palestine, and Iraq would almost certainly collapse into civil war and anarchy following a devastating attack on Iran. Iran just has to many violent
assets in the region, and you can be assured they will use them.
Personally I feel this will result in Oil going well above $150 a barrel, which could prove disastrous on the American economy, if prolonged for more
than a few months. Seriously though, this is not going to be like Iraq. Iraq was isolated when we invaded, Iran is not.
