War Imminent, U.S. a shoe in for "support"
Several major media outlets have eluded that war between Israel and Iran is imminent.
MSNBC ran an article today on it's news site regarding a bombing that took place in Jerusalem. According to the article "The attacks appeared to have been carried out with sticky bombs attached to cars by magnets. Similar weapons were used against Iran's nuclear scientists, feeding suspicions that the new bombings were a retaliation crafted to mirror those attacks."
After the U.N. and the International Energy Agency reported that Iran was enriching uranium for the purposes of creating a nuclear weapon, top Iranian scientists were murdered in cold blood with the same style of "sticky bombs" that were used in the Jerusalem bombings. No one has claimed responsibility for the initial attacks on the Iranian scientists. However, according to NBC News, MEK fighters (the People's Mujahedin of Iran) are assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists and are being "financed, trained and armed by Israel's secret service." Iran claims that the recent bombings that killed embassy officials in Jerusalem were the work of the Israeli's themselves as what can be described as a "false flag" attack.
Israel and Iran have long been at odds. Tensions have increased exponentially in recent months due to a perceived attempt by Iran to become a nuclear power. Iranian Gen. Masoud Jazayeri has made a public statement that “The enemies of the Iranian nation, especially the United States, Britain and the Zionist regime (Israel) have to be held responsible for their activities.” This has only exacerbated the situation while solidifying the rest of the worlds belief that Iran is indeed attempting to place itself in the position of threatening the nation of Israel.
What has not been reported on is that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejadhas gotten tremendous support from his people during this tense standoff with Israel and ostensibly the United States. In the streets of many cities throughout the country there has been demonstrations in support of the Iranians right to seek nuclear capabilities.
With tensions at the level they are now it is only a matter of time before there is an all out war between the Israeli's and Iran. With the support that has been given to Israel from the United States in the past it is hard to imagine that the U.S. will not lend it's support in this situation as well.
Support, in this sense, could mean anything from intelligence, to a commitment of personel on the ground in an all out invasion, not unlike the invasion of Iraq by U. S. troops in 2003. In any event the United States it seems will be embroileed in yet another conflict. With an economy that is already suffering from poor international relations, and an entire generation of Americans growing up while their country has been at war with a micddle eastern nation, it is entirely likely that it will be quite some time before we ever see the "peace" from the political promisses of "peace and prosparity".
