There's nothing about it on the BBC, but yes, a strike is inevitable.
I highly doubt the Americans/Israelis will strike any other Middle Eastern countries, in fact, I cannot see it happening whatsoever.
The United Kingdom will do exactly as the United States says because of this idiotic perception that both of our nations share a 'special relationship'. The United Kingdom will be dragged into it, you can bet your bottom dollar on that.
To out it simply, NO
As most think tank institutes and academia related people have pointed out- all of this is for internal consumption... As the Iranian nation is divided currently and so actualy a war would be counter productive as the nation will unite under a common enemy... America
The reagen administration made the same mistake 30 years ago... The people united under a common enemy
When the shah was over thrown by the majority and an clerical reform was imposed... A certain % of people where against the out come... But they still united over the common enemy
The peoples hatred towards America is more than their hatred towards Ahmadinejad ...
Well it wouldn't shock me but until the likes of the BBC say something i'm a little skeptical at the three month time period for the moment.
I really dont see it happening. Nato is struggling to hold ground in Afghanistan and Iraq, from a logistical point of view I think they really want to but it isn't possible, both in numbers and the fact doesn't Iran have a much more modern army to defend itself with? We steamrollered through the Iraqi army because they were using tanks from the 60's....
A strike within the next three months? It seems doubtful without more information. There's been no formal confrontation as of yet, so I have no evidence to back up this claim.
There won't be because there isn't the spare military capacity or the money. Afghanistan is hard enough.
What happens if the US and UK get dragged into fighting on two fronts, Iran and Afghanistan, and North Korea invade South Korea and threaten to overrun it.
I think he's referring to airstrikes rather than a land invasion. But from the West's point of view, airstrikes would be a last resort because they would increase support for Ahmedinejad. He's trying to provoke us into attacking him becuase it'd shore up his crumbling support in Iran.
ahmadinejad is trying to act like a big man. How the hell would he attack the US of all places ? The Revolutionary Guard aren't that strong, thier military arsenal are standard and (to our knowledge) they have no nukes. If the US can get Russia on its side, then the UK may become uneccessary, as Iran's allies are not as strong as NATO's. Hopefully, Turkey will also be on the west side too.
Personally i think Ahmadinejad is a hero. He just likes winding the world up, and seeing who he can piss off next. Legend.
So be it. We must do all we can to protect our beloved Paul.
