GeneralBob, check this news out. I'm concerned.
Thanks, DoctorZin. I'm still reading.
Judging by the adamant way in which Russia rejected the referral of Iran to the Security Council last week, how China is hesitant to do so, and how wishwashy India is being, I'd say that they're all thinking long term regarding Iran, this oil bourse, and the standing of the US dollar, which is against the ropes.
China, in some ways, might be tacitly *begging* the US to attack Iran just so China would have a chance to 'annex' Taiwan once and for all.
Everything pivots on Iran, where the US/UK/Israel are essentially on one side, and the rest of the world is on the other.
Thus the stakes do not ultimately bother neocons. As did Hitler by invading Poland, the neocons will also "go for broke" and bet the house by attacking Iran, and any power that backs it.
"In my life, I have always gone for broke." - Hitler to Goebbels, after being warned against invading Poland by his own army generals.
