Can someone enligthen me on current WWIII events?
    #4545857 - 08/17/05 09:29 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I dont keep up on the news too much. I dont watch TV, and i rarely get my hands on the paper. But recently a buddy of mine told me that bush more or less has told Iran that unless they 'disarm', they will be going after them.

Now i know that if the US invades Iran, we can all say goodbye to world peace.

Now if this info is true, can anyone tell me HOW this sad fuck is still in control? Why is this hitler wannabe still in power? I just dont understand it. Money is worthless when you're cooking at 2,000,000 degrees of nuclear goodness. What the fuck?

I'm out of touch on the subject, fill me in.

America can't possibly invade Iran. Leaving aside how stupid/dangerous/immoral it would be, it doesn't have anything approaching the military capacity.

Richard Cheney has been quoted as saying that the US will attack Iran after the next "terrorist" attack on US, whether staged or real.

Are you people listening to yourselves?  I dislike Bush strongly, but he wouldn't dare to try a war with another Middle East country.

Yeah, no shit.
We could crush Iran in about 40 days.
It's this occupation crap that's the pain.

The occupation would make Iraq look like a cake walk. Plus, there are other factors.

The government in Iran is not highly popular. But an invasion would likely make people "rally 'round the flag". Which we do not want.

Also, Iran has a big say in the prices OPEC sets. With oil prices at record highs, its thought if Iran really wanted too, they could make these prices DOUBLE, practically overnight.

All their weapons programs are buried deep under ground and under mountains, since we've been threatening them for 30 years....

Not worth it, at ALL

Watch for strengthening ties between South American countries and China.
Venezula is a good current look at the manuvering going on down there, cause i'd be dimes to donuts that China had her hand in this current little fiasco.

Iran also has ties to China.
As does North Korea.
All of this is just pretext.....manuvering.
Games.
It'll go hot soon enough, when China starts building/buying a Navy

With Iran, we're talking about a country about 3 times bigger than Iraq, and much more populous, as well as having a well-armed, well-equipped military that hasn't been crippled by years of sanctions. It would be mighty stupid of us to invade.

Dude, air power.
We've got such crippling air strike capability that their military and economic capacity for war would be destroyed in 2 months of bombing.
They've got nothing that could stop it.

I think the american people are the scapegoat, but those in power in Washington are leading the charge to provoke military conflicts around the world. The extremists amoung us are the problem.

We won't touch Iran?

Remember when everyone thought we were going to go to war with Korea a year of so ago? People love to cry wolf about war. Don't get all uptight about it, the US isn't going to do anything.

If we did, though, we could turn Iran into a big, glass floor.
