Forget Iran. Forget Israel. Forget Iraq, Saudi, Libya, Egypt, Afghanistan, Pakistan…Forget the entire Middle East.
Not our world, not our culture, not our business.
Our own tribe is sick and dysfunctional enough.
Should we be attacked by a hostile state, then it’s total war until the threat is gone. Otherwise, it’s not a fight worth fighting. I am applying my MHG logic here. If failure is not an option, win. If failure is a livable option, do not fight.
“Failure”, that is, a nuclear Iran, clearly is an option. Why do I say this? We watched idly as North Korea screamed for attention over its nukes. Really, is a nuclear North Korea less dangerous than a nuclear Iran?
Why is Israel more valuable to us as an ally than South Korea? Why is it allowable for South Korea’s aggressive neighbor to have nukes, but not Israel’s? What is Israel to the US, other than a place to sink billions of dollars in “foreign aid”, stolen from you and I?
I realize this post may make many of you uncomfortable, or even angry. So be it; it is truth as I see it.
A war with Iran and its unintended consequences in not in the interests of the united States, or their citizens.
It is, however, in the interest of the “US” national government, and their crony-capitalist bedfellows.
A war is exactly the type of band-aid solution the US government traditionally reaches for in desperation.
Good commentary as usual.
