Not to sound like an horses ass. I beleive we all know, one way or another come hell or high water. There's gonna be a war. Irregardless of who starts it. Whether it's this scenario or a totally different one, there's gonna be a war. Will it result in an all out go for broke power grab from all nations. Let's hope not. But we all know how people are. If the mushroom clouds start to fly, no regrets here. Just sorrow for those who had ring side seats.

If a mortar enters into the US from Mexico and kills someone, when who actually shot the mortar isn't known and it's known there's multiple national forces in Mexico who could have such a weapon, we can declare war on Mexico and bomb them?edit on 3-10-2012 by MasonicFantom because: (no reason given)

Why are so many people so eager for nuclear weapons to be used? It's amazing how every time there is even a hint of conflict it's going to be nuclear. We've gone a long time without nukes flying, despite how close we came to launching (and we came damn close a number of times), so why would there suddenly be nukes flying?

the above NY Times article, gives a detailed explanation ref; Large riots now starting in Iran. Near bottom of the NYTimes page theres a chance to click one part and view a Youtube video showing the Iranian mass of people so far involved. The ME spoon is now well stirred,,,,, is this plus this present thread part 1 of the said October surprise ???
Every time the slightest thing happens people want to see a huge war, so they can sit here screaming "I told you so!"
As far as Obama needing a war I dont agree with that. Any war in the middle east is only going to highlight his failed policies. Not exactly something to run a Presidential campaign on.
