This Is More Likely Than Not going To Happen
"Iran: Israel's threats inexplicable Iran's ambassador to UN demands Security Council take steps against comments made by Ephraim Sneh, who said Israel would attack Iran if sanctions weren't in place by Christmas...He was referring to an interview given by former Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh to the Sunday Times in which he said that if Iran were not further sanctioned by this Christmas Israel would attack the country. "
Look, I don't want to sound like an alarmist, a conspiracy nut, or a warmonger. However, the reality is, Iran will not stop working towards obtaining nukes and Israel will end up striking Iran. This will probably throw us into a 3rd world war to some degree. I don't know that it will truly be a global conflict on the scale of WWII or a more localized conflict on the scale of WWI.
My best guess has Obama trying to get some kind concessions from Iran that will allow the islamo-fascists to save face while placating the Israelis enough to keep them from striking. This isn't going to work. It won't stop Iran from trying to obtain nukes, it won't stop Russia, China, or any other anti-western country from helping Iran obtain them.
The best thing that could happen would be for a successful popular revolt in Iran that overthrows the islamo-fascists and establishes a truly free society. I know most of the Iranian people aren't islamo-fascists. But their leaders are and they will bear the brunt of the carnage if they do not act. This will force the Israelis to act and they won't distinguish the Iranian leadership from the people.
Only time will tell if I'm right or wrong, and to what degree. Ufortunately there isn't much time until we find out.
