Updated on March 15, 2013

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.

    its simple , the whole of the US economy is base on one simple fact, the petrodollar. Enough the US has sucked the life blood out of the worlds resources pennies on the dollar, while the rest of the world pays top dollar, real money not some propped up fiat system which the US does not have a once of gold to back the so called world currency, My hats off to Iran, Iran has little more going for itself then the latter country did not of the support of Russian and China , you have been warned.. if the US interferes with Iran's Oil for gold exchange, Yuan, Ruble currencies exchange will suffer the harsh reality.....its the end of the Petrodollar and the US will , humiliate , kill and destroy who ever threatens their Money tree.....

    Religion is of man, true understanding is larger than religion. The world wide web has the ability to bring all us closer - our call to action to simply to love one another.

    A great man told me repeatedly the purpose of life is simple - to bless others. If we start with this one item and end with this one item, the world will be a better place.

    There will be no nuclear weapons if any one of the countries uses it. Other countries will use their nuclear weapons in reaction, and everything will be finished.

    And why would America not want any one else nucs if it has stockpiles of it ?.If you think others are irresponsible and may use,let me remind you that America is the only irresponsible power which has used it twice.Iran must have nuclear weapons or all others who have nucs should destry their nuclear arsenal too.Selective justice is no justice.

    you all are bunch of brainwashed, hippy loving, shit heads. May be you should open your eyes and pay more efing attention to what’s going on in the world. The fact is that iran is building nucs. You can love them all you want and wait till they come in from you back door and f the shit out you like the 911 or perl harbor. The Fact is US never engaged in war for no reason. This is for the writer. FYI if US didn’t enter WWI and WWII everyone would be kissing nutze a** and more people would have died. And if you heating on US, why the F are u even here. May be you should go kiss irans ass and stay there. and don’t talk shit about US or Obama. He may not be my fav. President but I still respect him for he is our president.

    I agree that it would be a huge mistake to attack Iran. The same neocons who urged the foolish attack on Iraq are crawling out of the woodwork and saying that we have no choice to do whatever it takes to prevent Iran from making nuclear weapons.
