They will go after Iran or Syria because those nations are relatively defenseless. Why do you think they keep avoiding NK?

If you will recall, The Administration first pointed the finger at Iraq. When further information became available pointing blame at Osama and his Taliban protectors in Afghanistan, there was no longer any choise.
Afghanistan is also still vital in the "Big Oil&Gas Picture" as it will be necessary to secure transport of natural gas from the fields to the north in Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan. www.american.edu...

I love how much of the population of the U.S. is now polarized into believing that we actually have to invade entire countries to keep terrorism at bay and that many people (not exactly on this board, mind you), actually are thinking "who's next?" every day. Its this type of thinking that I am absolutely baffled by.

But anyway, since when is anyone in the world who has nuclear weapons our enemy? This has never been the case until now, apparently.

I think the next target will be the first nation to step out of line.
If any one of them do something bold and aggressive...or if solid intelligence comes out about a link to terrorism....that nations butt will be in the fire, either diplomatically, economic sanctions, or millitary action.
My top pick would be Syria. They could be more easilly isolated.

Seems they always go after third world wastelands as opposed to civilized industrial countries as this would never fly as reason for their interference.
Can you see them going after Germany or France or Holland? Why don't they go after Israel as they are the biggest terrorist outfit in the game. Oh yeah....I forgot....it is they that run the US!

It's not that anyone that has nukes is an enemy-it's when they are our enemy and they have them when it's a problem. Expecially when they can reach our soil.
