Has anyone else read the book "The High Cost of Peace" (How Washington's Middle East Policy Left America Vulnerable to Terrorism) by YOSSEF BODANSKY? I started reading this about a week ago, and some of the topics that he brings up are just mind-blowing. I'm afraid that the U.S. is blind or unwilling to accept the mindset of Iran/Syria.

I read some more of it last night, and found where he states that Iran actually has had nuclear weapons since 1992. According to Yossef, they purchased 4 nuclear units from Kazakhstan. Two of them were 40 kiloton units mounted on scuds, and one of them is a free fall gravity bomb, and the last is a 152 mm artillery round. A few other points that he brings up in this chapter makes you wonder why we haven't started WWIII already? It appears that Israel's assignation of the Damascus/Tehran middleman Sheikh Sayyid Abbas al-Mussawi (Who also happened to be the Secretary General of HizbAllah) was water on the fuse. Apparently he was trusted in both Damascus and Tehran completely and his death left a communication gap while they searched for another trusted messenger.

Of course one of the reasons that Iran hasn't attacked Israel yet for fear of retaliation form Israel's undeclared nuclear stockpile. Israel has developed the new Sparrow missile system which renders incoming scuds mostly useless. I believe that they had a live test of this defense system last month in California. So if Iran has only 2 nuclear scuds, the likely-hood of them finding their target is scarce. I suppose that they could send in a barrage of missiles, and then slip in a nuclear missile in the middle hoping Israel would be too busy targeting the first wave to catch the second.

Still this is risky. What Iran is in need of before attacking Israel is a larger stockpile of nuclear weapons, so now we run into the subject of the nuclear reactor that is under construction in Iran. Once they have this they can start producing several nuclear weapons a year. Of course Israel won't allow their most dangerous foe to stockpile nuclear weapons, and wouldn't attack an active nuclear reactor.

So, where does that leave us? Iran's reactor is scheduled to go on-line in in 2005, and they are currently testing the Shahab-3 missile which could strike anywhere in Israel. Information leaked out of Israel shows a possible strike against Iran's Bushehr nuclear facility as early as this Fall, to which Iran responds that they would wipe Israel off the face of the earth. I'm sure Syria would join in the fight, and the U.S has thousands of troops stationed in Iraq nearby, and.......That's right! WWIII could start this year.

Well, maybe not this year, but soon. The question seems to be when and not if.

dbates, you are right on


This wouldn't really be WWIII, but the first major nuclear war (unless china/russia got involved). The fact is though that it is very likely.....

Out of all the moronic actions that the current US administration has done is not wait for the UN ok to attack Iraq. It divided the entire world in a way that did not need to be. It showed that the US didn't care about anyone, but ourselves and will bully whoever to get its way. I am not commenting on wether is was a just or unjust action, but rather that it was done in an unthinking fashion. Which is actually how I would sum up most everything that the Bush administration has done. A bunch of morons trying to remove a splinter with a chainsaw.

So in short, Yes. We are in the birth of WW3.

I've suffered from lucid end-of-the-world dreams my entire life, I find it foolhardy not to believe in such a fate, a fate, yes, mankinds eventual self-destruction due to its own ignorance. Looking at images of war caused for just reasons, acts of heroism denied to the innocent, but left to the war mongerers, and thinking of those innocent millions killed in the name of democracy, I find it hard to hold back my tears. I really despise how we could allow such men as, Bush, to get away with his hate and terror. I hate to comment on such topics, my stomach stars to tie itself into knots not even the most learned of boyscouts could untie. The world is about to fall, now is the time to come to accord with our actions.

I would be happy to kill that man and his likes the world over.

There have always been regional conflicts - always will. All of Western Europe and most of the East is aligned militarily to the US. A lot of Asia is too and most of Australaisia.

Muslim states - who make up the vast bulk of the enemies of freedom can cause a lot of problems - world wars they cannot make.

I fear that WW3 may happen before I die of old age. However, if/when it does, I believe it will be caused by American aggression.

Give it about two years. We will see the start of WW3 mid next year. WW3 will probably results in a nuclear holocaust due to nuclear weapons being a mainstream thing now.

Freedom, what freedom? Like Jonna said above, whose concept? How can you expect a society which has been indoctrinated into dicatorism its entire life to saturate democratic ideologies in a mere 2-3 years ? These people are not on par with the politico-socio constructs, we, in the west, are capable of comprehending and entertaining. I highy doubt Saddam allowed the works of political-philosophers to be accessed under this rule.

This will happen and you will see the contingent plans for Global Security, Middle East Peace and A Euro based Global Monitary System. It can happen right now.
