Personally, I thhink people will realize you don't require state of the art weapons when missiles and mini subs will do the job. If Iran is struck
and they fight back hard enough the military industrial complex will be the loser IMO. People will start to ask the question, why do we need to spend
so much money on Amerian arms?
I also think the Americans have realized this fact which is why they have pulled thier aircraft carrier out of the region. If Iran managed to strike
an aircraft carrier and cripple it, this would pull the worlds attention towards the arms that did it. I believe the American government think tanks
were considering sacrificing the carrier so the american people would bo more inclined to get behind the government for an attack. I believe they
reconsidered due to the impact this would have on the super rich criminal income from the military industrial complex.
That said, I believe the government will go ahead without the public on board, basically they wont care about public opinion anymore.
Does anyone have any views on this?
