War With Iran: What Are We In For?

If we go to war with Iran, we can expect a lot of things…

 …a lot of them unforeseen.

 I get the feeling that people are acquiescing to a war with Iran without really knowing what a war will entail.

 Let’s take a look at just what we are all in for.

Skyrocketing Oil Prices

If you thought Katrina or the BP disaster skyrocketed oil prices, wait until the Persian Gulf gets shut down. We’ll be paying through the nose. As bad as a Gulf shutdown would be, you can be sure the oil companies will use that as an excuse to skyrocket oil prices even more, making us pay with the proverbial arm and the leg. Hey, the war will soon become something not-so-fun anymore as our wallets go empty.


War Against An Ethnically, Racially and Religiously United Nation

Unlike Iraq and Afghanistan, Iran is homogenous – one religion, one language, one race, one entity. They have a long history, and they are proud of it. These make a country come together during wartime, not fall apart (as was the case with Sunni-Shia-Kurd Iraq).


War Against a Fanatical and Warlike Nation

Being Indo-Europeans (like ourselves) the Iranians love to fight and they love war as much as we do. They have kicked Ancient Roman, Medieval Arab and Modern Iraqi butt (what the hell, after beating the Arabs introduced their own brand of Islam - Shia). Iranians proved their fanatical penchant for self-sacrifice during the Iran-Iraq war. They have a grotesque ‘fountain of blood’ gushing red to commemorate the ‘martyrs.’ Martyrdom goes hand in hand with the Shiite religion like Sunday morning brunch goes with Christianity.

A Bombing Campaign That Will Never End

It’s official, and high ups in the Air Force are admitting it: once the bombing campaign starts, it will not stop. It took a month of bombing before we started Operation Desert Storm in 1991. The Air Force continued bombing sporadically for the next 12 years, representing a huge expenditure in ordnance, fuel and aircraft wastage. The point? Bombing Iran and keeping it bombed will require a gigantic amounts of fuel, ordnance and it will wear out our aircraft.


The Bottling Up Of Our Fleet

Once our fleet enters the restrictive waters of the Persian Gulf, it could become a sitting duck for any aircraft, submarine, suicide boat, coast-launched missile or mine in the area. Our countermeasures showed themselves to be less than impregnable when the destroyer USS Stark was hit by a single Iraqi Exocet anti-ship missile and knocked out (the offender got away scott free!) And remember, modern attack aircraft can carry four anti-ship missiles…and launch them simultaneously. And all our countermeasures did not prevent our military ships from hitting mines in the Gulf either.

Occupation of Both Sides of the Strait of Hormuz

If Iran closes the Strait of Hormuz, it will require amphibious landings on both sides of the strait to keep the strait open. (Iranian territory on one side and United Arab Emirates on the other). This ‘occupation’ would most likely be permanent.

Advance to Teheran will be Through Tough Territory

There is no easy way to Teheran. All of the terrain on the way there looks a lot like Afghanistan – towering mountains. Mountainous territory is perfect for tunneling the enemy into ambushes and holding off superior forces. Furthermore, Iran is not lacking in modern weaponry – mines, missiles, infrared equipment. Our forces will have to advance across some pretty limited terrain while being confronted by fanatical, well equipped and highly trained forces.

Epic Occupation of the Entire East Coast of the Persian Gulf

In addition to a separate advance on Teheran, another force will have to march out of Kuwait and continue down the eastern coast of Iran from Kuwait all the way down to Pakistan and occupy it permanently if we hope to make the gulf coast secure for shipping - hey, that's a 1000 MILE FRONT we're gonna have to secure to make the Gulf safe for the Western World!

 The long occupation ‘front’ from Kuwait to Pakistan, along the coast will stretch American forces to the limit – it’s a gigantic area to occupy, but occupied it must be if we are to hold open the Persian Gulf. This very long 1000 front will be subject to Iranian artillery harassment and guerilla attacks upon thinly stretched US forces until the end of hostilities.

US Moves Will Alarm China

40% of the world’s oil flows through the Strait of Hormuz – a lot of it to China. You can imagine China’s alarm when it sees the US occupying its biggest oil causeway and its ally being pummeled. What the heck, China might just decide to liquidate that $2 trillion dollar bond debt it is holding for us and demolish the dollar. Can you spell hyper-inflation? China has already threatened a 'reaction' should Iran be attacked.


US Moves Will Alarm Russia

One must remember Russia will lose all influence over the Middle East when Syria and Iran fall to NATO attack. In addition, Russia’s paranoia about ‘being surrounded’ will be exacerbated by a hostile border spreading now spreading from Finland to Turkey and possibly continuing from Iran to Bangladesh. Russia has already threatened NATO with 'consequences' should Iran be invaded.

We Will Be Fighting Israel's Butt Kickers

The Israeli Army is the most modern and well trained land army in the world. Iranian Hezbollah militias stopped it cold when it attempted to advance into Lebanon in 2006 by simply using well trained and well equipped infantry. We would be stupid to ignore this fact. It seems Hezbollah was ‘cheating’ by equipping its infantry with infrared cloaks which made the Israeli infrared imaging devices useless and the Hezbollah anti-tank squads ‘invisible.’ And the Iranians were good at shooting those missiles too….and they seemed to have endless supplies of them…and the missiles were state-of-the-art. Again, we would be stupid to ignore this very important fact considering the American armored forces are trained to fight at night using infrared imaging devices, just like the Israelis were.

Iraq Uprising

Once attacked, Iran will initiate a full-scale Shiite fundamentalist uprising in Iraq against the pro-US government. This new fighting could draw overstretched US forces into Iraq as well.


Afghanistan Uprising

Once attacked, Iran will initiate a full scale Afghan war by supporting the western warlords bordering Iran with modern weaponry, who will ally with the Taliban in the east. This new fighting could draw overstretched US forces into Aghanistan as well.

Can you spell D-R-A-F-T?

Russia Could Re-Supply Iran

Though Iran has no border with Russia, she does have direct borders with nations friendly to Iran who do. Tons of Russian equipment and supplies can flow freely through these porous friendly borders to Iran with NATO being able to do little or nothing about it.

So there you have it:

 -skyrocketing oil prices

-the taking on of a homogenous, united, warlike country

-an unending bombing campaign (we’re already short of smart weapons)

-our fleet vulnerable in the restrictive waters of the Persian Gulf

-permanent occupation of the Strait of Hormuz

-permanent occupation of the eastern coast of the Persian Gulf

-a military advance through towering mountainous Zagros mountains to Teheran

-a new civil war in Iraq

-a new civil war in Afghanistan

-provocation of Russia and China leading to unforeseen circumstances

 Do we really have the money, the resources and the determination to handle all this?

 Draft anyone?

 How about war bonds?

 I didn’t think so.

 At the very least, let’s all have a realistic idea of what we’re getting into before jumping into the Persian Gulf (oh, excuse me, its 'Arabian Gulf' now) morass.

Syria Self-Destructs

Syria is eating its own guts out.


But it seems Syria’s own intelligence services have betrayed the government of Bashar Assad by limiting police and military reaction to the mysterious ‘snipers’ and ‘outsiders’ who are carrying out all sorts of terror attacks on the hapless population of Homs…which the world media attributes to the Syrian Army.

The Syrian police and army have received orders to ‘stand down’ which is standard procedure when forces within your own government are in the process of betraying the government to ‘revolutionary forces.’

The Syrian Intelligence Services and high heads of the security forces are betraying their country to the ‘revolutionaries’ (paid thugs and murderers), just like Ghadaffi’s own enforcers betrayed their country.

Syrians are being sniped at and murdered by foreign agent provocateurs while Syrian police and security forces fail to show up and are told to stand down.

Bashar Assad is playing the role of clueless Czar Nicholas while his country burns.

Syrian armed forces are naturally tough, but under the direction of its treacherous security and intelligence agencies, their value in defending the country is now in doubt.

US Resurrects Ancient Laws To Justify Tyranny

The US Government has used America's WW-I era Espionage Act of 1917 to prosecute ex-NSA manager Thomas Drake.

Drake whistle-blew on the NSA when he saw the agency was targeting the mass of the American public for surveillance...instead of terrorists.

He is now being prosecuted under the Espionage Act...

...of 1917!

The Espionage Act of 1917 was passed under President Woodrow Wilson during WW-I.

So what the government (and the Supreme Court) is saying is that old wartime laws are still valid and applicable.

This is shocking.

By default, does this make President Adams' Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 still valid and applicable?

Are we subject to ancient wartime laws passed in bygone eras?

As far as the US Government is concerned...this seems to be the case.

Commmunist Chinese: Our New Oligarchy

This is England's new upper class.

Notice there are hardly any Anglo-Saxons amongst the high class customers.

The British 'peasants' are all behind the counters hawking the stuff to the new economic overlords.

This is truly a sad day.

We are now licking the boots of the COMMUNIST Chinese oligarchy.

Outsourcing: The Megatrends Mega-LIE!

In 1979 the United States recognized the People’s Republic of China and opened its doors to a new era of trade with that Communist country.

Just three years later (1982) businessman-futurist John Naisbitt wrote Megatrends, a book predicting a new post-industrial America where factory work was a thing of the past and Americans worked in air conditioned offices.

Factory work was exhausting, filthy, dehumanizing work, said Naisbitt. We should be glad to be rid of it.

Let the Third World carry out the drudgery of factory work, he said. We, on the other hand, will be upgrading to air conditioned office work with computers.

Information would become America’s new industry.

And furthermore, this wonderful transformation was not only desirable, but inevitable.

Of course, it was clear where all of America’s factories would be going – outside the country.

According to Naisbitt, production would move to the countries of the Third World in general, who would be glad to industrialize and who would compete over who would sell to America at the lowest price for the best quality.

Meanwhile, Americans would move from the era of industrialization to the post-industrial age of Information, which would include managing all the industrial goods pouring happily into America from the Third World.

Yes, Naisbitt said, our factories are about to get shut down and exported to the Third World.

But wait until you see the jobs we would be getting in exchange!

Every ex-factory workers would now get their own air conditioned offices, where only the most comfortable of jobs awaited – data management.

For others, a comfortable and stimulating life awaited in retail, selling all those manufactured goods that would be pouring into America from the outside.

It took us more than two decades to see that Megatrends was a LIE.

The Third World DID NOT get to partake of all our exported factory jobs, only one country did – China.

Americans DID NOT get a chance to become comfortable retailers of externally produced manufactured goods, only one corporation did – Walmart.

The American factory worker DID NOT get his air conditioned office with a desk and a computer to manage information.

Instead what he got was part-time job as a sales clerk at Walmart.

Well, at least our workers got the air-conditioned work environment Naisbitt was crowing about so much.

More likely than not, Megatrends was simply part of a deception to sugar-coat America’s exportation of her industries (and jobs) to China.

How else could this delusional book hit the New York Times Bestseller’s List for two years in a row?

But when I read Megatrends in the 1980’s, I thought Naisbitt was on to something.

Why couldn’t the Third World do all the producing and America reap all the harvest while cleaning up our environment and improving our work place.

But of course, I had a totally different picture of this Megtrend.

In a possible reality, cheap goods from the Third World might have fueled all the mom and pop stores across America.

Instead, the Megatrends imports wiped them all out...leaving only Walmart.

In a possible reality, the nations of the Third World might have profited from a new American-backed industrialization and  American imports of their manufactured goods.

Instead, only one mega-nation did – China.

Is it any wonder that all those cushy high-paying air conditioned office jobs never showed up?

It was all just one more establishment LIE.

Two decades after Naisbitt’s Mega-lie, China has emerged as the world's foremost new industrial power.

Is it any wonder then that John Naisbitt now makes his home in Tianjin, China?

Before closing I would like to mention just one more thing.

Naisbitt’s big lie reminds me of an even bigger lie: The New World Order.

Just like Naisbitt promised us an air conditioned Shangri-la as a workplace after we exported all our industries, the New World Order is promising us peace and prosperity under a new international system if we just give up our sovereignty.

Do you think the reality will even approximate the promise?

You think the New World Order will be about peace?

It’ll probably be about terror.

You think the New World Order will be about prosperity?

It’ll probably be about deprivation.

You think it’ll be about democracy and human rights?

It’ll probably be about tyranny.

Let’s learn a lesson from the Megatrends, shall we?

The promises of the New World Order (just like Megatrends) are nothing but gigantic LIES.
