Does the Pending Attack on Iran Keep You Up At Night?
The attack on Iraq in 2003 was not expected to cause major world turmoil, but the same cannot be said about the pending attack on Iran this spring or summer, which appears more and more likely. Do you worry about the consequences of such an attack?
No, it does not keep me up at night even though you are correct about the very high likelihood of great world termoil; a nuclear armed Iran is even more terrifying. Like North Korea, once they have them, you can't take them away.
President Bush was an idiot actually attacking Iraq, he had already won with his other measures and 20% of the US and the rest of the world knew it. Why do I call him an idiot (stupid is over used)? Because he didn't read his history, or at least ignored it and listened to Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld instead, rather than Colin Powel. If he listened to Powel, Bush would have know, what happened to him and America was inevitable, it happened almost identically to the British after WW II when Iran was created.
The impending turmoil was not worth actually going to war in Iraq, it will be in Iran if all other measures fail and they are on the verge of developing "the bomb".
I am very unhappy about the Iran situation, but I don't lose sleep about it because it is totally out of my control.
No, it doesn't keep me up at night, but I follow the situation closely. Something has to give, and it looks like it could be war on several fronts at once. What's going to happen is going to happen according to God's will for His glory. I believe there are terrible times ahead, but there is nothing we can do about it.
No, not yet.
But what does keep me awake at night is my wondering if an all-out U.S. military attack against Iran is going to be Obama's "October surprise."

Right now, while a Hub is pending, it doesn't show ads, it has a "no follow" tag etc. However our followers get notified and they may share the Hub during that time. It would be nice if that notification could be delayed, too.

It is all falling neatly into place for the US to attack Iran on behalf of Saudi Arabia. The US views the plot as state-sponsored terrorism. Secretary of state Hillary Clinton described it as a "violation of international norms" and said she would discuss with allies in Europe and...

How long is it actually taking for hubs to come out of pending?One of my hubs has been up for longer than 24 hours and is still in pending. What are the realistic times that we are seeing?

I find it kind of ridiculous that I have been waiting for a couple weeks now for one of my hubpages to be published. What was the longest time you have ever had it take to get a hubpage to publish?

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...
