I know , but they are not much predictable.
I think that we should find undeniable sources to rely on. For example official sources.
I know that this is an information war. We should find our defense to stand till the last moment. otherwise we will fail to deny ignorance and we will
Thank you for replying.
Look, I know this is stressful and distressful, but I think at this point most people can see what is going to happen. Regarding Libya, the U.S. and
NATO waited for the people to call out for help...for an internal resistance to form...and for an Arab League call for action.
We have gone through the same steps in Syria now...and Libya's Regime has been toppled, freeing up resources...and so now it is Assaud's turn to be
forced out of office. The West - and Turkey taking the lead is a whole lot more palatable than America doing so - will take out Syria's air and
naval capabilities, and will strike any ground forces that try to move.
Syrian nationals will do the heavy lifting, and will push the current ruling party (family) out...with logistical, and military support from NATO.
And I believe quite strongly that once this is settled, Iran will be next.
The difference with Iran, IMO, is that it will likely be a two-step process (much like it was with Iraq). If Israel's neighbours weigh in, in
retaliation to the initial strikes on Iran's nuclear facilities (it does not matter whether or not these are indeed for peaceful purposes), it is
possible they will be dealt with extremely harshly.
I do believe that within a few short years, the entire corridor from Turkey through Afghanistan will be allied with the West...and then Pakistan,
sandwiched with India, will be forced to again lean toward the West (ie.will need to abandon any tolerance for Islamic extremism).
