America's War Against Iran: A Dangerous Move
United States is leading towards a war against Iran. US history tells us that this country like to start wars world over. Forget about World Wars, In last 60 years alone the country is directly or indirectly involved in hundreds of military operations and 10s of major wars.
The major countries with whom United States started a war or took part in it in recent past were:
1950-1953: War against Korea
1959-1975: War against Vietnam
1990-1991: War against Iraq
1992-2004: Bosnian war
2001: War against Afghanistan
2003-2010: War against Iraq
2011: War against Libya
Will US Attack Iran?
Recently Obama, the US president has told the allies that US will attack Iran in early 2012. So there is no doubt, that United States is in hurry and is prepared for another war. It is nothing to do with the nuclear program of Iran, but the forthcoming Presidential elections of United States, and a general tendency of US presidents to declare new wars. It is about proving that US is the only superpower in the world.
If United States really worries about terrorism, it would have attacked Pakistan, where terrorism is sponsored by Government and military. But US have a special love for Pakistan.
It Will Be a Dangerous Move
But we should remember that attacking Iran will be a dangerous move by United States, which could lead to regional war in Gulf, and even to World War III.
Remember that Iran is not Iraq or Afghanistan. It is a developed country, have a large population and a large geographical area. It has strong armed forces. Further, Iran is backed by Russia and China. Both the countries have already warned United States for the 'serious mistake' if it attacks Iran.
If US attacks Iran, latter will declare a war against Israel, and all the Arab countries will have no option but to back Iran. Further, US's attack on Iran will give a chance to Russia and China to intervene to safeguard their own interests. No doubt, it will be the most costly war for US, and may be it will US's last war as an aggressive country.
Further, United states is still fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, so opening a third front will be a great mistake.
So I think United States should avoid this risky game. Otherwise, it will lead to the beginning of US's downfall.
Although US is safeguarded by two oceans, we all know that they are not going to safeguard the country anymore from the attacks.
