Syria? A small war? ROFL :-)
Famous last words, as my mother used to say.
Naw. Sadly, it wouldn't matter if we attacked a perfectly harmless, tiny, sweet little country like Estonia, which we'd probably think we were up to
-- all our enemies (read: over half the planet) would show up there and channel funds, personnel and weaponry "through" their borders into the war,
and, much like Iraq et al, we'd be fighting a not-quite-world-war in a box. And the people at home would be sitting in front of the TV going, "Cool
videos! Wait, have we won yet? Why not?"
Then again, if I were an evil overlord, forget the middle east, I'd just conquer a couple small islands or use the ones conveniently cleared by
nuclear testing to make a big, big lab and then destroy the enemy's culture through freely available, horribly addictive but often insidiously
subtle, death-by-a-million-metabolic-papercuts drugs, many found in the most common foods.
Oh wait. Maybe someone already thought of that!...
