[quote:asV 8438481:MV8yMDY2MTM2XzM0NzY2ODM0Xzg1M0JBOEVC] [quote:Anonymous Coward 26812864:MV8yMDY2MTM2XzM0NzY2MjgyXzgyM0I1MUMz] asV, so that's what happened? Did the same thing not happen in Venezula? I know it seems there have already been a few coups pulled off on Chavez' ass, but none have worked thus far. Maybe he's to established n has to much fire power and countries like Russia n China backing him. But hell truth be told the United States has enough oil, natural gas, coal etc... we wouldn't even need the rest of the world, but of course that's not in the plans that's why they fund all these goofy tree hugging groups to step in and slow or outright production. [/quote] Hugo Chavez is dying of cancer, rather painfully. But that's neither here nor there. He is smart enough not to mess with nukes, which is why US for the most part has left him alone. Iran, on the other hand, has bitten far more than it can chew. So the whole piper-paying time is fast approaching. And it cannot be stopped. Even with El-Baradei at IAEA and Obama, not to mention Russia and China, shielding Iran for years.... the sanctions are finally starting to have real bite. Rial has lost more than 1/2 its value in just last 6 months. And since Russia/China have already been paid off.... military option is not far from the horizon. Iran simply doesn't who they're messing with. They THINK they do, but they have no idea --- in part because the typical Magical-Thinking their Muslim mindset has been used to since birth, typically doesn't do so well when up against 21st century reality. (Their whole 4 year, multi-billion dollar IRGC military base infrastructure in Gaza, for instance, went up in smoke in the first 2-3 days of the operation for which Israel expended less than 1% of their capabilities so as to not harm too many civilians. Child's play, to be sure. But I digress.) And as you say, US, Cananda, even Israel have in recent found a LOT of oil-gas in their own territories, so with more sophisticated, safer 21st century extraction methods.....The Middle East as a whole is slowly becoming NOT so important. But that's in the medium- and long-term, but in the short-term, we still have a few scores to settle in the M.E.... As for Russia... nobody gives a shit about it to risk World War 3. The way to conquer Russia is to BUY OFF and otherwise BLACKMAIL their leadership all of who deep down LOVE, LOVE, LOVE capitalism and whose assets & children love to live, study and vacation in the West. So the whole "Putin-Doom" is OFF, sorry to disappoint you, lulz. [/quote]
