I don't think it would. Are China and Russia willing to go to war over Iran? I don't think so.
There is alot of talk that the war with Iran would bring about WW3.
People don't go to war against a "culture," they go to war against people and governments. I'm not privy to State Department intelligence, but I would think we have a problem with the government of Iran. And from what I'm hearing, several other countries aren't too happy with them either.
So my question pertains to would you start a War that is in conflict with a culture that we really have no problem with?
It would be a hard decision, but someone has to say yes or no, as carefully as they can.
If you knew your actions would lead to the deaths of millions of men would to engage in that decision? Our leaders seem to have no problem committing to that decision.
Bush profited? The US government profited? That doesn't make sense to me. And I don't believe General Electric said start a war so we can profit. I think even Obama would say no to that one.
Why? They profit off of it.

The citizens do not start wars. They just cheer on cue. Then they run out (wobble out) to W-mart and buy plastic flags so they can look patriotic while reciting their lines like "its just collateral damage" or "the terrorists hate our way of life."
Also, I am very sorry that so many people are being so misled as to what is behind OWS. This will not end in the way they think. Remember the protesters from the 60s? They are the people who are creating the problems today. They are the ones they were waiting for. They are the ones making war and bailing out billionaires.edit on 19-11-2011 by jcord because: (no reason given)
