The big story today was that Israel is prepping to airstrike the Iranian nuclear enrichment sites. And frankly, if Mexico or Canada hated America as much as these two countries do, I'd be screaming for the government to act to prevent a country that vowed to destroy our country from getting a nuclear weapon too.
In my opinion, there is no doubt that Israel is going to bomb Iran. The bigger question is what happens afterwards? Do Iranians "go to war" with Israel? I'm confident they would have to do something forceful to show that they aren't going to take a slap from Israel's military without retaliating.
The Israelis know that Iran will retaliate, which means to prevent Iranian missiles or bombs from fighter jets hitting Tel Aviv, there will be an all out war. Israel has by far the superior military in all ways. And they also have nukes. Will we see a more conventional war with artillery, bullets, and jets? Or will Israel call Tehran and say, if one missile or bomb from Iran touches Israeli soil, Tehran will be a nuclear glass plate?
Threatening nuclear war is not what the world wants. But, it may be the only way to put Iran in it's place. Then we have to wonder what happens if Israel actually did drop a nuke on Tehran? World War III.
Every Arab state would go ape-shit and start an all out offensive to destroy Israel, then Israel would have to nuke every Arab country that got into the mix. By this time, Russia, China, the U.K., and the U.S. will be involved and may start taking sides against each other.
This leads to the possibility of a nuclear holocaust, right around the time the Mayans predicted the end of the world, later this year. What the fuck? Once again, we realize how one small group of extremists can set a chain reaction of events that could mean we're about to undergo the most horrific time in the history of the world.
I don't think the likelihood of nuclear war is very likely, but no one thought the assassination of Arch-Duke Franz Ferdinand would leave 20 million dead after WWI either.
Peace in our time may just not be anything more than a pipe-dream after-all, and I'm disgusted that the human race could still be at this point of self-annihilation in the 21st century.
