Consequences To Expect If The U.S. Invades Iran

Let’s be honest, quite a few Americans love a good war, especially those Americans who have never had to bear witness to one first hand. War is the ultimate tribally vicarious experience. Anyone, even pudgy armchair generals with deep-seated feelings of personal inadequacy, can revel in the victories and actions of armies a half a world away as if they themselves stood on the front lines risking possible annihilation at the hands of dastardly cartoon-land “evil doers”. They may have never done a single worthwhile thing in their lives, but at least they can bask in the perceived glory of their country’s military might.

This attitude of swollen ego through proxy is not limited to the “Right” side of the political spectrum as some might expect. In fact, if the terrifyingly demented presidency of Barack Obama has proven anything so far, it is that elements of the “Left” are just as bloodthirsty as any NeoCon, and just as ready to blindly support the political supremacy of their “side” regardless of any broken promises, abandoned principles, or openly flaunted hypocrisies. No matter how reasonable or irrefutable the arguments against a particular conflict are, there will ALWAYS be a certain percentage of the populace which ignores all logic and barrels forward to cheerlead violent actions which ultimately only benefit a select and elite few.

They do this, though they rarely openly admit it, because of unbalanced and irrational biases which drive their decision making processes. In the case of the wars in the Middle East, the common public argument boils down to one of “self defense”. “They are coming to get us!” At least, that is what we are constantly told. And I’m sure that some Americans out there truly believe this. However, in their heart of hearts, others instead relish the idea of imposing their world views and philosophical systems upon others, even if it means using cluster bombs and predator drones.

A few hundred dead marines 100k Iranians. The FED will just make up some money to fund it. A government situation like Egypt. Russia and China will get a few good oil deals so will America. You and I will pay with inflation. Barack Obama gets reelected. Repeat the next 10 years in South America. Don't be unpatriotic we need this war I mean oil/land. Now go buy another car and TV!

Will this be like Libya or

Will this be like Libya or Iraq? (Just bombs or land war) Obviously the goal is regime change and secure the petrodollar but how do we do this in Iran? Thoughts?

For good reading

By claiming there is no conspiracy, you prove to those who believe in the conspiracy that you are part of the conspiracy.

WAKE UP AMERICA

The scariest part is there have been rumors that there will be a staged terrorist attack perpetuated by the government.

I'm seriously considering going around with a sledge hammer to bash common sense into these numbskulls, maybe that might help them understand better ;)

No kidding!

I hope in our lifetime. People will look back in several hundred years at the idiotic history of stupidity we humans have managed to create. Some day the common thought will be "Are you kidding? They outlawed a plant that grows naturally?"

Summary: World War 3

If the US invades Iran, it will start WW3 as Russia and China get involved to protect their interests there. If more people knew this, I am sure that there wouldnt be nearly as much support.
You may be able to add India in there too as they get oil from Iran.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Nope

The commies could care less about the Muslims. Give them some oil contracts they won't care. They will pretend to care but Don't. World War 3 no... A grab for resources yes. The Chinese and Russians are probably in on it.

No one has deputized America to play Wyatt Earp to the world.
-Pat Buchanan

I think You Are Right

Taking over Iran would mean 100% US dominance in the MIddle East. All we'd have left is puny 'Syria'.

Why wouldn't China, India, Russia decide that now was the time to act. France would definitely back them up 'in spirit', and maybe Germany. Perhaps only the UK would 'support' the US 'in spirit'.

They would think that this would be a quick battle, rapidly 'discouraging' the US. But we would be all offended and fight the world.

DAMMIT!

Just stop it!

Thanks

One way to stop it is to educate Americans with articles like this one.

From the article:

War Domino Effect

In January of 2010, I wrote an article for Neithercorp Press entitled “Will Globalists Trigger Yet Another World War”. In that article, I warned about the dangers of an invasion of Iran or Syria being used to foment a global conflict, in order to create a crisis large enough to distract the masses away from the international banker created economic collapse:

http://www.alt-market.com/neithercorp/press/2010/01/will-glo...

In 2006, Iran signed a mutual defense pact with its neighbor, Syria, which is also in the middle of its own turmoil and possible NATO intervention. Syria has strong ties to Russia, and even has a revamped Russian naval base off its coast, a fact rarely mentioned by the mainstream media. Both Russia and China have made their opposition clear in the case of any Western intervention in Iran or Syria. An invasion by the U.S. or Israel in these regions could quickly intensify into wider war between major world powers.

So true, legalizeliberty....

You are correct, a strike by the U.S. or Israel could escalate into wider war and bring in Russia & China.

I said this on another thread here at DP....and left links to 2 articles from the EU Times where on 2/16/12 Russia says it is prepared to act if the U.S or Israel strikes Iran.
The other link is also from the EU Times reporting on the statement of the Chinese Pres. saying he has called for China's Navy to be prepared for warfare....this was only 2 months ago!

Here is the link to that DP thread, with the links to the EU Times articles.
