I'm thinking the Israeli activity is a little more than just Saber Rattling. These people normally don't screw around or play games...
We've got Israeli practicing "raids" in Iraqi airspace...
In anticipation, oil, after going down, has shot back up again...
Iran Photoshopping missles...
USA claiming it will defend Israel and interests in the Gulf...
...and OPEC, buddied up with Iran and it's massive oil supply warning against unlimited jump in oil prices if Iran is attacked.
I'm no doom-sayer, but I think it's going to go down here in the next week or so, and I'm hoping it's an Israeli raid, with close USA supervision.
It's bad enough they'll be launching from US-IrAq; some democracy we've brought to that country. But if we jump on the wagon and send some
planes over to take out Nuclear falicilities in Iran, I'm moving to Canada, and we may as well start digging the bomb shelters all over again.
Between Russian ties to Iran, and Russia being pissed about missle sheilds going in in Europe, who knows what they'll try to do. They might not be
capable of much, but still, it'll be more than we've dealt with in some time.
Syria could take advantage of the "distraction" and hit Israel at home. Who knows would be on board with them, as everyone in that region, with the
exception of Israel has wanted Israel gone since the beginning of time.
The Iraq situation could slip into a lower level of hell, with the people of Iraq revolting against the occupying force.
Regardless of all the China talk, "What will China do"? I don't see them doing much. I think they're smarter than that.
A relative who was in WW2 always said that the next big war will start in the Middle East. That's painfully obvious now. It's just a matter of
when. Maybe this will be the spark that ignites the powder keg.
