That's genuinely an interesting picture.....but one minute you say they are nonsensical and insane, now you're saying they're not so nonsensical and insane and that they were more insane in the past than they might be now, but that overall they are probably still insane?

Just what are you talking about?

It's just a blanket statement.

Americans are insane. There you go.

Another post on depleted Uranium?

Uranium is heavy. It doesn't blow in the wind. Furthermore if it were as agile as is said, where are the regional defects?

Sheep as far as Scotland were deformed from Chernobyl. Unless you can show similar, I have no reason to believe you.

It is as you said. Their government was insane. Affront immense pressure they are taking extreme actions. Even crazy people are capable of amazing organization skills. Just look at WW2 and how much effort it took to collapse Germany. The Russians fought them all the way to the capitol building.

Extreme actions of Iran include bounding their fate to Syria's and trying to set up the war in such a way to benefit them in the long run. They want to draw larger powers into the fight because, at least from observations, they believe they can get more from after the war.

If all played out as they wished, Russia would kick out NATO from Syria, Turkey would submit, Israel would somehow be nuked, and they could blow up a great deal of oil across the south in Saudi Arabia, and similar places.

They are not acting as if they think they can win. They are acting as if they think they can cause huge pain in defeat by causing catastrophic damage to supply lines via the insurgency afterwards.

Any government willing to throw its people into hellfire just to stir up the potential for a mortal blow to resources of your unbeatable enemy is insane.

And hey, guess what, that's what America and the Soviets were playing in the game of nuclear chess. They were equally insane to risk billions of lives just for the 1% chance the survivors would be a few people on their side.
