    Barry is raising the stakes, sending hardware to the gulf, Iran's Imadingyslob says he will strike the west on Feb 11, things are getting quite tense.

    As usual, we are doing Saudi Arabia's heavy lifting.

    I think war with Iran is almost inevitable.
    There exists only a slim chance it will not happen.
    I also think there exists a fair chance that a conflict with Iran will grow into a world conflict.

    I don't think he has the balls to attack us, we both know they aren't going to be in power much longer if they do start a War.

    And where exactly would the U.S. Ground Forces necessary to fight this war come from?

    War with Israel is a certainty.

    If we end up in a war with Iran it would be a PERFECT opportunity for N Korea to attack S korea. Fighting on FOUR fronts would be a disaster of BIBLICAL proportions.

    If any of you have a email address for Imadingyslob please pass along to him to wait till at least the 15th. Going to be a hell of a race on the 14th.

    This is just President Chamberlain, I mean, President Obama, following through on the deal he had made with Putin to cancel the missile defense shield in eastern Europe in exchange for absolutely nothing. While the Obama administration claims this is to prevent Iranian attacks in response to strong UN sanctions, we all know Russia and China will block any sanctions that might be more than annoying to Iran.

    The US and like minded allies could impose strong economic sanctions against Iran outside of the UN, but this would weaken the authority of the UN and possibly be illegal and it would outrage Obama's liberal base, so that's not going happen while Obama is in the WH, and any military action to stop Iran's nuclear weapons programs would have similar political consequences for Obama, so, imo, what we are seeing is an attempt by this dangerously naive President to make the ME and Europe more comfortable with a nuclear armed Iran.

    It certainly looks like it. Israel probably wont wait too much longer on taking some kind of action. God help us.
