War is hell, and I hope that all these rumors that are being spread by Khorranshar News Agency about the prospective "bombing of Bushehr" nuclear reactor aren't true. It may be a last ditch brinkmanship to bring the ayatollahs to their senses. Once the hostilities break out, it's anybody's guess. It's out of our hands, anyhow, for no one knows who is planning what and when. Only God knows who will pull which string. The air strike, if limited, would probably be preferable to whole scale bombings. But these things tend to get out of control very quickly. Israel would be well-advised to use diplomacy instead. President Putin has no business making business deals with Iran at this sensitive times, and neither does China. The world has become an anthill of greedy interests vying for power. The new mafias are raising their ugly heads everywhere. The largest contest is between Russia and China on one side, and the U.S. on the other. How different is this from the Cold war? Not much! Both blocks are competing for energy resources and geopolitical hegemony. Russia and China is doing great harm by voting consistently together against the United States. It appears as if America had extended a friendly hand to nations that act as enemies, not friends. The rouge regimes feel emboldened by it, as so did most recently Burma, Iran, and Sudan. How is it possible that we keep empowering China's Democracy, while she desperately tries to destabilize our efforts to restore Democracy elsewhere? This is a dilemma within a dilemma for the politicians to solve. There is nothing the bloggers can do about it, other than to pray.
