What we are seeing is nothing more than propaganda, that amounts to saber rattling.
If there is going to be a strike against Iran, the reports that come out about such will not come from the United Kingdom, as they will ultimately put
censors and blocks on such, only telling the general public what it wants the public to know. The last armed conflict that the UK was involved in,
was during the Falkland war, and ultimately there only reports came out once they knew that they were winning and it was successful, beyond that,
there was strict censorship and the press was excluded in reporting of such.
All this is doing, is posturing and chest beating, merely just to rattle the country of Iran and nothing more. Until the first shot is fired, and
both sides know who ever fires the first shot will be accused of starting this conflict, there is really nothing to do but wait.
Iran is not backing down, rather they are pushing the boundaries of what they can do, seeing at what point and where the proverbial line in the sand
is at. They will continue to state that they will attack, or put military ships somewhere and ultimately just try to get a reaction.
To quote the movie, “War Games”: The only winning move is not to play.
And in this case that may be the wisest course of action, which is to do nothing, not to announce intentions and ultimately let them make the first
This is a high stakes game of chess, and the pieces are being moved, no one is ready to make that first attack or strike, as the pieces are not in
place. In this case Iran is not ready for any conflict at this time frame, as its allies are not ready to back them up, but soon they will be, and
ultimately when they make that move, the question should be, not if we want to go into another conflict, but will we be ready for such.
