Well, the seeds are being sown. Mystery threats from Iran....sent a carrier group to the Gulf. Non essential embassy employees/family in Bagdad told to evacuate. Saudi says Iran backed Yemen rebels hit their oil facilities with drones. Somebody attacked some Saudi oil ships this week in the Gulf of Tonkin....opps....I mean the other gulf. Blame Iran. (Pay no attention to the long standing feud between polar opposites of the Muslim faith) US leans on other countries not to buy Iranian oil or suffer US trade sanctions. Sounds a whole lot like pre WW2 when we cut off Japanese oil supplies, trying to force them to retaliate. Result....thousands of US service men sacrificed at Pearl, got rid of a bunch of WW1 scrap iron, and Roosevelt got the war he wanted.....no, NEEDED....because the depression had lingered on too long, and a war economy would cure it. Even though we were allies with some of the European nations, the case for going to war there wasn't really flying well here. We needed a good, solid, December 7th moment to motivate the country. War declared on Japan and Germany December 11th, 1941. The dots are there, the connection isn't that hard. Even a fogged over crystal ball will tell you what direction we're headed. Same lies and bullshit being spread today....pushing and pushing Iran.....and they will probably fall for the same game plan....finally closing the Straights (and 20% of the world's oil supply). The resulting doubling, or more, of oil will sure help the shale drillers here at home that have been operating under the Polish economic system.....loose money with every barrel, make it up on volume. Of course, we'll bomb Iran (John McCain will be heard giggling in his grave) The Iranians will cut loose (if not before) with some of those super duper Sunburn missiles, taking a chunk out of the carrier group....maybe a carrier itself...our "Pearl Harbor" moment....v2.0. The US will respond all out, with the Saudi's and Israeli's leading the cheering section. So get ready for 5, or 8, or 10 buck gasoline. We will be told to suck it up...the economy is in the toilet due to Iran, not the fact we're been printing phony money for decades. Trump will get re-elected 2020, because no 'war time' president gets thrown out. Yep, a good little war has always cured a lot of ills, so that play book is being activated as we speak. Unless somebody comes to their senses.....and given we're a nation OF the corporations, BY the corporations, and FOR the corporations.....and all the political puppets in Washington march to their corporate drum.....I'd say we'll be in a shooting war with Iran before the year is out. Make your preps accordingly.
