I often hear the argument that it's about: "Israel's struggle for survival."
If this is the case, and hypothetically speaking.. "All Muslims and all nations of Islam want to destroy Israel.. etc, blah blah." Why haven't they
done so? Only the "Gaza conflict" persists, and the Palestinians are not a force, they are a people. Just like Iraq isn't a force, but the US
continues to "fight" (and I use the term 'fight' loosely..) the insurgency. The insurgency is mostly comprised of individuals and groups of
individuals whose families have been killed, their homes destroyed and their lives as they know it halted, with no progress in sight. You also have
your random "foreign agent insurgent", but this is true of all wars and is not symbolic of a "Unified Islam". Please look into any war in all of
history and witness how war just becomes a "conflict of interest" and opportunity for any interested, by any means. Not all combatants against Rome
were literally against Rome, or unified with Rome's common enemy, as an example.
So.. As the years pass with Iraq's "Shock and Awe" campaign in clear memory, we are starting to engage into another campaign against Iran. It is
virtually identical to propaganda we saw with Iraq, how the Iraqi regime was "a shadowy government" and they were hiding weapons of mass destruction
everywhere. This is the reason we went to war, because we "believed Iraq to be dangerous", so we attacked them to halt their supposed war-interests
to protect the peace and prosperity of the western world.
Where did that get us? Peace-wise? ... Didn't get us very far did it? Pretty much made it unbelievably worse I would think. Israel bearing some brunt
to this backlash, and rightfully so, considering they fostered such "support" of the action.
How exactly will a preemptive strike against Iran make Israel any safer? How in the world... ? This is backwards logic and will never make sense.
Engaging in a war or economic war with Iran, like we did with North Korea, will effectively let the WW3 train depart the station. The middle-east will
watch in horror as one of their bastions of prosperity and progress gets raped, pillaged and burned to the ground. These people will undoubtedly not
take it in stride. The middle-east didn't like the attack on Iraq very much, but Iraq wasn't very liked by the region to begin with. This is not the
case with Iran, at all.
The entire western world will suffer extreme consequences, especially Israel. Frankly, the entire world will suffer, especially the middle-east.
So, I don't see how this is anything other than a blood-lust crusade. Any rational being would see this as such. The entire world will be plunged
into terror, in the name of peace and freedom.... again.
Woe is the world as we know it.
All those in support of a strike on Iran are quite despicable and you blacken your hearts and souls forever. If you don't believe in a soul, then you
are just a despicable human-being, and deserve no such comfort or safety when you wish such destruction on the world. You reap what you sow.
(Edit: For clarification, I'm not calling anyone a despicable person for "not believing in souls". Sorry if that makes it seem as if I'm
criticizing those who don't believe in such a thing. War-mongers are despicable. .. There.)
