Go Darke

Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it

Cry Havoc…

My gut feel is that a (full-on) war in Iran probably won’t happen… because… I’d like to say the cost/reward benefits seem really bad. But you know… democratically elected (crazy) people tend to resist normative conventions.

I’m less conspiratorial than most however. You know, that whole 1984 perma-war vibe to keep us docile and controlled. But maybe that’s just what they want me to think.

On up-scaling your target countries, (I’m assuming the eventual goal is war with China) Iran is likely more challenging than Iraq. Which was more of a challenge than Afghanistan. So in terms of honing your art-form the US is moving in the right direction.

Still, if I were feeling speculative, I’d put money on not-for-reals-war. Cruise missile strikes and other forms of bombardment from afar are much more likely. But invasion and boots on the ground… I can’t really imagine it.

Of course, I might have just jinxed it for everyone. Especially for your average Iranian, whom (I’m assuming) like most of us, doesn’t really want to get a face full of shrapnel and drink water out of a ditch because their leadership is a bunch of Mf’ers.

Don’t worry guys, potentially freedom is on the way, and descending rapidly.
