Never a moment’s rest…

150294523US002_GAS_MASKS_DIThere is never a moment’s rest when it comes to beating the drums of war. Every waking hour is spent worrying about what is on the horizon, not only for Americans, but what is on the horizon for all of humanity.
512305_ote_rugby_120x600The push for war with Iran and Syria seems to get more and more aggressive everyday. I’m not sure what TPTB are waiting on, but I am sure it will happen before the year is out.
I’m really not sure if Israel’s ultimatums are anything more than window dressing for the masses. However the masses are erring on the side of caution, in Israel at least. Citizens there are stocking up and readying themselves for a conflict. Although the Israeli government wants the masses to believe the conflict would only last a month or so, and with only a few Israeli casualties, but we all know how long these conflicts will last; take a look at Afghanistan or Iraq.
There is still some division within the Israeli government as to whether Israel should risk an attack on Iran without stronger commitments from Barack Obama. Yet, where there is no division is whether to attack or not. Israel is trying to push for a more solid commitment from US and is beating the drums of war to get it. Israel has already made it clear it would like the US to wage the war on Iran, but is also threatening to draw us in by engaging in a unilateral attack. This sort of thinking would have more than the 500 Israeli casualties Israel thinks it may sustain. What about all of the US service men and women in the line of fire between Iran and Israel?
Once again, Israel is playing with fire. It won’t be too long until the US and Israel gets burned.
