The Slow Buildup to War with Iran

Its coming sooner than later. Its coming within the next six months. Once it happens, it will open and unleash a host of satanic deeds from Iran or Iran's proxies or sympathizers. You can count on it. Your life will be unaffected for the most part but for the sky rocket prices of gas at the pump, easily hitting $5 a gallon. There will be more security measures leaving and entering the US.

The West and Iran are already at war in the dialogue sense. Despite whatever the West tries to do about stopping a nuclear Iran, their government simply continues on to the goal. Iran has attacked and downed a US spy drone along its western border with Afghanistan. The US has claimed that we can see without invading Iran's airspace. Iran has now issued two new threats: to hit beyond its borders for a US reconnaissance drone which its military claimed to have shot down and that an oil embargo on its exports would boost the price of oil to $250 a barrel. They could and will easily do this by closing the Hormuz Straits. They have over 200 anti-ship missiles to toss at any ship or oil tanker. It will only take ONE attack to create a panic and to draw US military forces in. Once it starts, there is no telling what might happen. It will no longer be about stopping an Iranian nuclear bomb, it will be a regional war where adversaries will take shots at each other. The US RQ-170 drone is an unarmed, unmanned stealth aircraft equipped with the most advanced reconnaissance instruments for detecting nuclear weapons systems. Sources report that these spy planes operate over Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Turkey as well as Iran and Afghanistan.

We know Israeli will do something about Iran. The IDF and US policy are not on the same timeline. Let's say Israeli attacks Iran nuclear facilities with modest success, Iran responds and tosses a non-nuclear weapon into Israel as Hezbollah fires its thousands of missiles as well. Turkey decides to finish Syria by crossing the border to create a refugee border area as they planned. Syria attacks both Turkey, the US Bush carrier and on the Golan heights. Iran could also test Iraqi resolve and send forces to do this. Iran could close the Hormuz straits, fire missiles into Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

If you think this situation is going to end without war, you have not been paying attention to events as they have been building up, the positioning of assets. It is closer than you think.

      War seems to be inevitable. I noted a comment above regards the inaccuracy pf US intel in the run up to the 2nd Iraqi War; I concurr with that-either the intel was flawed (likely) or the intel was twisted by the Bush administration to justify the invasion of Iraq.

      But US intel isn't the primary factor here - Israeli intel IS the primary factor. I'll trust Israeli intel before US intel any day. Israel's national interest regards Iran's intentions is life and death for that nation, and Israel will have to intervene to stop what you call "Satanic deeds", and here I agree with you: all this activity is being inspired by Satan.

      I, too, have the ability to analyze, with more objectivity, though!

      Oh you are not, only a fool would ignore the signs. But, peace is a heavy price.

      "You can count on it" Are you an expert in the Middle-East affairs? I guess! And, what is the heinous "satanic" vocabulary used? You are definitely not a partisan of peace.

      "The U.S. has claimed...", you mean like the presence of weapons of mass destruction?

      Don't force me to destroy your illusions!
