It is possible that some sort of National Security Crisis will occur prior to the election. If it does, actions involving the Presidency, Congress and the American Military may totally change the election. In the Cuban Missile Crisis and other times of national crisis America traditionally rally's around the flag giving a sitting president nearly full support of the people regardless of their politics. It is believed that a sitting president would have the advantages the office affords him that are necessary in times of crisis and should not be upset. Look for an escalation of the problems unfolding it the middle east and election is at hand.
Our foreign policy is on the rocks, we are weak and ineffectual. Is that because of a lack of understanding of international politics in Washington or is there something behind our current foreign policy that speaks to a different desire on the part of our nation's leadership? If things in the Middle East continue to deteriorate, what might happen
Several possibilities come to mind.
One possibility is that if things are allowed to go much further, even without Israel's involvement, decisive military actions taken by the President to quell unrest in the Middle East might reverse his appearance as a president who is weak on foreign policy and, amidst all the unsettling events, give him a boost assuring his re-election. In light of his actions thus far, this is not a highly probable course of action.
A second possibility is that the implementation of 'Peace Talks' by the President and Secretary of State might put much of the unrest in the Middle East on the back burner increasing the illusion that his presidency and peaceful negotiations are successful in curbing Mid-East violence. Though historically, political negotiations have never brought lasting peace to this area, this too would lend credibility to his international Foreign Policy also helping to assure his re-election.
A third possibility is that Israel will make a 'first-strike' against Iran's increasing build up of nuclear fissionable materials and long range nuclear missiles to protect itself. That has a high probability factor though it may not happen before the election. In that situation, the President might commit the US Military in full support of Israel which will virtually assure his re-election.
It's easy to see by these three simple examples how Conspiracy Theorists might have a field day with the current situation in the Middle East and with our upcoming Election. You can add your own. These are just some casual observations over this morning's first cup of coffee.
