Default Re: OT- Iran Responsible For Deadly Ambush Of US Troops In Iraq

What better way to rally support around a leader than to launch a war against them? Look what 9/11 did for Bush. Guy is a nincompoop but was given unlimited political capital because we were attacked. And of course he used and abused it.. as is always the case.

I shudder to think what will happen if Iran nukes someone, or if we invade them. Or both.

I mean, IF Iran nuked Israel, then you KNOW we and other nations would intervene.


If Iran attacked Israel, there would be no Iran. There would just be a parking lot of radioactive glass between Iraq and Afghanistan.

Check back tomorrow when he hits the coup de grace: a thread about a breaking news story that isn't actually happening, because the Illuminati are psychically blocking it from our view.

With no intentions of adding anything intelligent to the conversation, Heilige returns to FreeRepublic.

However, Heilige is entirely right. We should never speculate about the future. We should never, ever attempt to imagine how things might be if we act in a brash and foolish manner. This notion that the president of Iran has a large following of Islamic extremists that are willing to blow themselves up for their religion or the country is of little importance to him. He cannot be bothered by such trivial depictions of a very possible future.

Oh, wait.. what's that? 9/11 was a "failure of imagination"? Hmm.. if only someone out there was thinking, "Hey, maybe this whole funding the Afghan rebels thing is a bad idea.. I mean, that Gorbachev guy did warn us. But he's a dirty commie anyways. Hmmm."

Check back tomorrow when Heilige 1) fails at being humorous 2) assumes that someone believes in the Illumunati 3) blames the liberal media for our failures in Iraq.

Kudos, Heilige.

Oh, and by the way, I hear the army is looking for a few good men. How you feeling about fighting in Iran? Sounds pretty good, huh?

The whole point of the Iraq War was to establish US bases in Iraq as lauching points because one day they'd need to deal with Iran.

Iran has always been the bigger prize.

People who don't see the upcoming US/Iranian conflict are blind
