It is clear that the conquest of the ME part of a grander scheme of world domination. The west's stance of preserving its hold on the world changed
since the post WW2 era. Now we seek to enlarge our empire rather than admit it is destined to fall like all others do.
After the ME has fallen, Iran being the last stepping stone, I believe we will move onto south America. The thought being world conquest. So after we
eliminate all resistance from lesser nations, the conflict will eventually spill over into a developed and competent nation.
As the example of the ME, look how Iran was left for last since it will probably pose a more significant threat. It also lacks a resistance that
wouldn't mind help from the west. Their resistance to their regime is just as opposed to western rule.
The war we will create in Iran will open the flood gates of an eternal enemy. This conquest of the ME will eventually unite them under a deeply rooted
hatred for the west. The only outcome in the long run is our being expelled from the ME in shame and the after effect of living in fear of reprisals.
If this empire wishes to grow in the face of decline, it will miss its opportunity of graceful withdrawal from the world.
Take for example the UK. They were a large empire and enjoy now a relative peaceful existence abroad. They can even afford to participate somewhat in
global war and presence. They do so by the intelligence of their predecessors in granting true freedom to their former subjects. The US is too focused
on being its glory and power to realize it is setting itself up for a total defeat.
The US´s allies will pay as well. the UK and Europe can expect a future of hellish existence unless they withdraw now and grant true freedom to the
ME. It is inevitable that the ME will unite against their common enemy. Though today we have superiority over them, the future of ever evolving
technologies and capabilities will level the playing field. It is important to forge alliances and mutual respect if we are to survive the coming
advancements mankind is bound to achieve.
Iran would make a better ally than Israel. They are less dependent on other nations for defense. They are less aggressive. They also would not ask for
aid. If I were leader of the US I would seek to establish strong relations with Iran over those of the Saudis and Israel, since both demand much and
War with Iran would set us down a path we would never be able to recover from. It would set in motion our eventual decline.
There is no threat from Iran. They wish for prosperity, and besides cultural differences that ignorant people will focus on, there is no difference
between them and other nations vying for prosperity and knowledge.
I hope our leaders are capable of evolution. Their mindsets are very limited and focus on domination rather than true progress. I see no difference
between the west's empire and that of a little remembered empires that end up only as footnotes in history due to their constant need for conquest.
We should take note of Iran's example in its noninvolvement in other nation´s business besides help and its subsequent prosperity.
