I suppose that with the draw down of Iraq these troops will be re-tasked to now fight the next war......in Iran.

The war drums have been beating loudly of late which means that Iran is the next place America will now fight a war..........for oil.....but call it something else.

"Two incidents that occurred on Sunday—Iran’s claim of a shoot-down of a U.S. drone, and an explosion outside the British embassy in Bahrain—may have been unrelated. But they appear to add to growing evidence that an escalating covert war by the West is under way against Iran, and that Tehran is retaliating with greater intensity than ever."

There has been a civil war going on inside Iran for several years... This isn't new. There are Iranians who are fighting against the regime. Many of which are inside the military as well as the government of Iran. Iran controls all media in and out of Iran, so you just don't hear about it.

I guess the Forever War is exactly that. A War that never stops. I wonder when this ship of fools is going to run aground?

We already won it seems...Since their missile bases keep blowing up out of the blue and top nuclear scientists have all either gone missing or happend to die in the blasts.

Plus We control their Nuclear Reactor and all we have to do is turn off the Cooling pumps and run it at full power with no auto shut down and a lock out their manual overides... we just overheat the core and damage it beyond Repair.

^^^Yep.

Plus Iran has been pushing insurgency in Iraq since Gulf II and we've been making their scientists and nuclear centerfuges etc have *accidents* for years.

People that are getting all scared about WW3 now haven't been paying attention and are thinking this is new.
