About this Iran debacle? I've been reading more and more about tensions between our two countries.

Do you think it'll lead to war within the next year or so?

How do you think Russia and/or China will react?

I don't think Iran poses that big of a risk for the United States. By that, I mean as an adversary, and the challenge it would be to overtake them. I think we could do it relatively quick.

China is the country I worry about the most. They're becoming an economic powerhouse, building their military, and doing steady trade with our enemies. And just like the Soviet Union during the vietnam war, we will continue to trade with them, and finance our enemy.

Oh yeah, and they're communists.

And, to make this somehow related to concealed carry (though I think I'm OK in this forum), I can't carry in Beijing. :evil:

What do you guys think?

Nuclear weapons in the hands of the Iranian regime constitute a true nightmare. They are Islamofascists of the first order. Much of the ongoing violence in Iraq is organized and funded by Iran. That's a fact. Nukes in their hands will wind up being used in Israel, Europe or the U.S., smuggled in by terrorists.

Iran has just threatened to shut down the Straits of Hormuz if the U.N. Security Council takes any action against them. They caused violence in the Straits in the 80s. They'll do it again.

I think that war between the U.S. and Iran is almost inevitable. They won't back off from wanting to get nukes. We cannot allow them to do so. If we do, we'll see an American city go up in a mushroom cloud.

China is a big strategic, long-term threat. However, it is one we might be able to deal with much like we dealt with the old Soviet Union.

Unfortunately that would take another anomolous person like Reagan with the guts to say, "no." Not only are we dumping more cash into China than we ever did the USSR in pre-1980's subsidies, but we've largely shut down our medium and heavy industries. If we were to squeeze China like the USSR, we'd have to do some might fast reshuffling. There are more things working against us with China, but I'll quit before I get depressed thinking about it. :(
