Liberal 1984,I've read all your posts,your style is wonderfull and your thinking correct,I wish there will be more people like you in the world
However,there are some historical facts regarding the end of the Cold War which placed us in this very dangerous position today
Ronald Reagan bluffed the Soviet Union(with the "Star Wars "program which he never followed) into building:
20000 heavy and medium tanks,grouped into 150 tank divisions
(NATO has in Europe 6 tank divisions only)
6000 hunting-bomber aircrafts( NATO has stationed in Europe 253)
300 strategic subs,the most powerfull having 12 missiles with 12 warheads each.
a fleet matching US navy
5 million troops(USA has 1 million)
missile shield capability
This effort resulted into the effective and immediate bankrupcy of the Soviet Union in 1989.USA agreed to provide money for wages if the USSR agrees
to let Poland ,Checkoslovakia and Hungary join NATO.
Meanwhile,quietly,the Russians have regained their strength and their control over the largest army in the world,yesterday Putin ordered the Black Sea
Fleet to ocupy and hold Yalta's Lighthouse,controlled by Ukraine.
And the americans were glorious in Panama,Nicaragua,Serbia,Yugoslavia,Irak,Somalia and other very interesting and rare countries.
Today US has an Official international debt of 8100 bln $(though unofficial sources cites 12.65 tr $) and the UK has only 4.77 trillion $ debt.This
ads more pressure for interventions in the case of Israeli wars and problems.
China,India and Iran joined the Russians in a military and soon,economic alliance to promote "multipolarism" and limit US influence into the
world,and particularily,stopping it from monopolizing oil resources(even though,Siberia is full of oil,and so the Caspian Sea)
Israel wishes to eliminate the powerfull Iran (formerly Persian Empire) from the region stage and conquer Palestine completely.
Iran wishes to regain control in the Middle East(like the Persian Empire) and eliminate all rivals,.They have formed alliances with all muslim
countries in the region through several decades(in the past 20 yrs Iran,Irak,Lybia,Egypt,Syria and Saudi Arabia developed the "NonDong 1 " rocket
into the "Shahab-3" missile with an eff range of 10000 km ,capable of striking the eastern coast of USA) and are prep to counteract a
Israel-American attack coming their way
Recently all signs shows the Russians preparing for a long and difficult war(stockpiling resources,selling raw mat to China,rising the ruble against
euro and dollar,activating anti-missile bases,deploying new units,sellinf anti-missile cap to Iran,deploying spy sat for Iran)
USA and Israel devised a plan in 2002(2001?) regarding the destruction of 450 burried-deep Iranian facilities by using "very small nuclear
weapons".Unfortunately ,the Iranians might use not-so-small ones in return.
Israel has been stockpiling conv and strat weap since June 2004 and has declared it will attack Iran by late March(that's the "deadline")
Iran is prep to attack Israel,with its allies by 24-26th of February.
So,what's next?There are too many political problems to solve this crisis whatsoever.
