    I completely disagree. After a decade in Iraq and Afghanistan and basically nothing to show for it, Americans are tired of war especially in the middle east. Maybe in 10 years or so we'd be up for another round. Not right now though, not as we're just on the cusp of getting out of there.

    What? How so? Every analysis I've read is that would almost certainly be a huge setback to the economic recovery. And not just us, globally. What it would do to oil prices alone would stun our recovery.

    Its myopic to think that Iran will close the Straits which could easily and quickly be cleared.

    If Israel attacks Iran, Iran will blow up all the Saudi oil installations and take 10 million bpd off the market.
    An embargo is a legal and normal diplomatic measure to assert will. A blockade of international waters is not legal and is an act of war. it's quite a significant difference in fact.

    Israel being a terrible country is no excuse for other countries being terrible countries. Personally, I don't much care for the government of either.

    In another thread, Sharon had said she meant the Iranian SSMs.

    I still say those oil fields will be guarded by some of the best AAA and Anti-Missile equipment in the world. I find it unlikely that an Iranian missile attack would succeed.

    I'm certainly sick of war. We never should have gone to either place and I'd like to see us out of the ME completely. That is not going to happen. Hell, we will be involved in Syria and Bahrain and god knows where else. We need to get the hell out of the region.

    What? How so? Every analysis I've read is that would almost certainly be a huge setback to the economic recovery. And not just us, globally. What it would do to oil prices alone would stun our recovery.
    Short term the war machine will crank up and the job market will pick up. But this war will not be a short war. It will be a long war, possibly leading to WWIII. In the end the war will drain our economy. It could very well pull the world into a depression.










    Somedays I stop and ask myself if it is going to be worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.
