All this time, Israel has been screaming for a war on Iran, claiming Iran wants to destroy Israel, and is pursuing nuclear weapons to that purpose. For this reason, the U.N. has imposed various sanctions on Iran. Sanctions are a form of economic warfare and rarely (if ever) help to avoid war; in fact, quite the opposite. Despite the aggravations and provocations by the U.S. and Israel, Iran hasn’t given them the war they want. Israel has already said they don’t feel they need to warn the U.S. of any actions it may unilateraly take against Iran and are now mulling over military action by this fall, and probably before the elections this November. Israel continues to take this stance even though the IAEA, the CIA, and even Israel’s Mossad has confirmed that Iran is not working toward nuclear weapons. The U.S. has just said again that they believe Iran is not on the verge of building a nuclear weapon.

War with Syria beginning soon
The ongoing threat of war with Syria gets closer and closer with every day that goes by. War with Iran it seems is going to be kicked off with a war military intervention in Syria. Iran and Syria have a mutual defense pact which is dangerously close to being triggered, and could have very terrible consequences.
The destabilization of Syria is being propagandized in the media as the native freedom fighting rebels are trying to oust the evil regime leader Assad. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, most (if not all of the rebels) are not even Syrian! In fact, some of them are reportedly al-Quaeda, or western (backed) mercenaries. There are numerous sources claiming the rebels are the ones engaged in the humanitarian crisis that is going on. The U.S. hasn’t ruled out no-fly zones either. This sounds a lot like the Libyan fiasco from not too long ago.
Ever since the Turkish fighter jet was shot down over Syrian airspace, tensions between the two countries have grown colder. Turkey has setup various refugee camps along their border with Syria, and have amassed troops along the border. In addition to this, they are now allegedly smuggling in weapons for the insurgents in ambulances. The U.S. has also declared that supporting the Syrian rebels is acceptable policy, even though there are al-Quaeda elements within the rebel resistance.
There will be a war with Iran, and more than likely it will begin in Syria. The only unknown at this point is when will hostilities officially begin? How long until Russia or China get involved?
