Where do you think the U.S. will go next if anywhere in its war on terror?
Wherever those fuckwhores are hiding.
Saudi Arabia will be last if we ever do that. Here is why
1)First we are getting too much oil from Saudi Arabia right now. Once we open up some other sources it might be possible to do.
2)If we attacked Saudi Arabia the extremists from the other part sof the world would use it as a rallying cry to unite muslims against us. We take out the extremists in the other places first, show the civilians that we are trying to help them, there wont be as much of an united front against us.
3)I think The Administration is trying to use diplomacy first.
We have just started sanctions, and the EU just blatantly ignored them and sent an envoy in.
Maybe syria. I think we should deal with Iran First. They are actually developing WMDS and they are the ones supplying Syria.
Besides, Iran is part of the Axis of Evil. Syria, while probably close to it, isnt.
Iran needs to go next, since they are the ones supporting the Shias in Iraq.
Why even ask that? We'll do what we have to do, where ever we have to do it, so long as it takes.
Have you got the guts to see it through? Maybe? Maybe you'd feel stronger about the situation if it was your BROTHER that just got his head sawed off.....
I think Syria, perhaps Israel will take care of Iran.
Iran will probably take care of itself. The mullahs are losing their grip on the population. The youth movement seems to be getting a little disillusioned with the so called "Islamic Revolution" and a lot of them weren't alive to know first hand about it. I think the mullahs realize this and that is part of the reason they are backing Al-Sadr in Iraq. A stable Iraq on 1 side and a non Taliban Afghanistan on the other is making for very uncomfortable morning tea in Tehran if you are part of the Supreme Council.
Syria is a total bees nest. If we try to go in there with one hand tied behind our back, it will be very very ugly. We'll probably just go the containment route with them, but the EU is totally against us. Or Israel may go after them. Its hard to say. Assad is no fool.
That is why a successful Iraq is so important. Once people in the middle east see and hear for themselves about how much better life is in Iraq then in their own country, they will want the same for themselves. (and hopefully fight for it)
I think the domino theory over time can be effective if done right.
Saudi will have to be "liberated" by muslims. In the current climate we can't go in there unless we are willing to admit this is a war of religions. Can you say doomsday?
Remember: Pakistan is a very volatile place. It is seething with Islamist rage and Musharraf is not a popular guy over there.
North Korea is interesting. They are like the bastard step child of China. They are also a powder keg ready to go off. I would keep up the diplomacy route. Anything involving them, China comes into play. King Jong IL is an absolute wacko. He could wake up one morning and decide to invade China
