Rumsfield is just singing lullaby when assuring us that army is better


Recommended Posts

Rumsfield is just singing lullaby when assuring us that army is better trained and equipped now. The latest barrage of criticism of army critics and really huge death toll in Iraq and other quite unpleasant revelations makes me worry. People with criminal background and druggies are still welcome in the ranks. So I strongly doubt our military capabilities in Iraq are up to the mark. If it goes this way we’ll stay there for ever.

And the worst is yet to come! I don’t want to scare you so much but if they start that war on Iran general mobilization is quite a probability then. At least such info is available. So wake up guys!

Iraq is merely a festuring wound, not fatal yet requiring attention. Involvement in escalation could well prove to be a fatal blow to international peace. If Israel continues to the point were the government of Lebanon is destabilized and replaced the situation could take a turn for the worst. Syria may well decide to intercede in that case and render "assistance" to the people of Lebanon through supporting an unelected Hezbollah government. This could compell the United States to react. There is no doubt in my mind that at that point the Israelies would extend their operations to include Syria, with the blessing of America I must add. The Americans would then look to interdicting arms supplies through northern Iraq and Iran, which could result in open confrontation with Iran. That would result in ultimate defeat for Iran, but would also likely cause the loss of port facilities and cause the Strait of Hormoz to be adversely affected. This is the most serious of all possible ramifications. China gets a lot of oil from Iran and would not look kindly on an interuption of the flow of oil.
