Prelude to War with Iran?

Prelude to War?
Another look at Iran, and what some informed acquaintances see as a possible prelude to war.

Step 1: Washington is pushing hard for terms, they know well enough cannot be met realistically.
Step 2: Once non compliance with said terms has been established, push, bully, beg, steal, or bribe, to create a general embargo on gasoline exports to Iran, i.e. get Russia, India, and China to play ball.
Step 3 ?

Without gasoline supplies from abroad, the Mullahs will have a hard time keeping control of the Country.

How and why did Japan enter WWII again?

When Israel is good and ready then we will attack on its behalf. That's what good allies do and Israel is our bestest friend in that whole region because the rest of them are out to get us.

Sure, let the 51th State earn its keep.

The British needed America in the war so we convinced the Japs that you were planning to attack them and so they attacked you first. Bingo America joins WWII

WWII was principally about world domination and secondly about obtaining the fuel to gain the first.




The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Actually Bruce there is reputed truth in it but it has never been proven thank god. Winston Churchill was desperate to bring America into the war, we needed their support badly in Europe and elsewhere, but if the intelligence services actually did achieve it we will, most probably, never know.

Seems hard to believe that the Japanese would take anything the British said at that point in time with anything but a grain of salt.
The Nips nailed you guys in Maylaya about the same time they hit us at Pearl Harbor.

Fact is they were hitting us hard all around Asia at the time and we were spread thin, things were getting desperate.
