As I sit here in my office I can hear rolling thunder in the distance. The dark clouds are not too far away, hopefully bringing much needed rain to the area. Southeast Texas, where I live has been in a drought for several months.
There is another storm brewing in the distance. This storm is over ideology and resources.
Ask yourself, why has the United States only gone into conflicts that involved oil producing nations? It is not that we are lacking resources, the conflicts are to seize control of those resources.
The thunder I hear in the distance are the drums of war.
My opinion, two things that can save the election for obama:
1 – create a threat to the US so severe that it can not be ignored.
2 – eliminate the threat.
The threat I see obama creating is a nuclear Iran. Not that Iran is “really” developing nuclear weapons, its that obama might tell the US that Iran has nuclear weapons as part of a propaganda program.
One issue that everyone seems to be ignoring is that Iran has been open about its nuclear program. UN observers have been allowed into Irans nuclear enrichment facilities, so far everything has been an open book to the whole world.
Is iran developing a nuclear weapon? I am sitting on the fence to answer that question.
If iran was developing a nuclear weapon, why are UN observers allowed into the country?
Attacking iran opens a whole can of worms with china and india, both of whom get a good bit of their crude oil from Iran. If obama gives the order to attack iran, how will china and india react?
Another question, would obama be willing to risk starting a world war to stay in office?
Lets say that obama attacked Iran, china sees this as an attack on the national security of china, so china attacks the US. What would happen to the elections? Could the elections be suspended during times a war or national crisis?
