This is my great fear. While it seems obvious the US and Israel with strike Iran, I was hoping for a bombing campaign at most with special forces handling contingencies. An actual invasion will surely enrage China and Russia. Seriously considering going into survivalist mode now.
The USA will follow everything Israel dictates them
I did not realize that you were not American. My apologies.
Now the reason the founding fathers are so revered here is that they suffered great repression at the hands of the British. Peoples lands were seized without cause. People were jailed for little or no cause. unfair taxes were levied to benefit the king. People were forced to quarter british soldiers with no compensation, And many other versions of repression too numerous to list.
Oh I would also like to apologize for the actions of my government . I'm afraid that we lost control of them long ago. Just so you know the government doesn't actually represent the feelings or attitudes of the average American citizen any more.
Yes and I'm quite sure that the people who founded your country were holy and pure and never did anything that could be considered bad in any way.
You have taken this so off topic that I could scream. i thought that I could give you a small amount of information about my founders and my country. I have no desire to turn this into a senseless arguement.
This thread was about the troop buildup on these two islands that are stratigically located. The fact that we are now out of Iraq and have the troops avalible to man these islands to defend these straits is more important than this rediculous arguement.
You are welcome to your views ,I don't need to hear them.
