Are We Inching Closer To A Military Conflict With Iran?

The United States is dealing with an unstable situation as far as Iran is concerned. President Obama is doing the right thing by doing all he can to use diplomatic efforts to get iran to come to the table on nuclear Weapons, and at the same time using our Navy Aircraft Carriers as a clear show of strength as a warning that Iranian threats are not taken seriously by the US, and that if Iran decides to attack the fleet that it would prove to be a very serious military mistake.  Everyone knows that if attacked the United States will without hesitation respond.

The United States wants a diplomatic resolution to this situation not a military one. The US does not want Israel to take military action against Iran while the United States continues diplomatic pressure. Even today the United States has called on Europe to remove Iran from key components of the world market infrastructure, something that would, if implemented, have an immediate economic impact on iran.  This is a risky manipulation indeed, but it’s done in response to a contiued refusal to compromise by Iran.

The Syrian situation tells the US where both China and Russia stand in this matter. They would most likely, it seems to choose Iran over peace, thus endangering  Mid-East stability, a continued uninterrupted flow of Mid-East Oil, and of course the lives of innocent people throughout Iran.  The United States has made it clear that they do not want any military conflict with Iran or her people. However, its leaders must be made to understand the development of nuclear capability, and their persistent threat to wipe Israel off the face of the earth can not and will not be tolerated.. 

Of course, for strictly political reasons the Right Wing, Far Right factions of the Republican Party are raising Cain clarifying that if they were at the Helm, they would already be strafing Tehran, and most likely getting ready to put boots on the ground, all in the name of Oil……..Whaaaaa……Did I say that……Opppps!  I mean peace.  No on second thought, I did mean just what I said….Oil. You see the Rich take care of the Rich. And the Rich want that oil.  

But the bad part of all this is Democrats, strictly for political reasons of course are thinking of the smooth flow of oil, reduction of crisis, keeping oil prices down, and boots off the ground, because it’s an election year. Mammas are tired of all this war, and killing. Tired of their kids and husbands and wives as well coming home in a flag drapped casket, and being told of how a grateful nations mourns the loss of their loved one.   However, based on this Presidents behavior right now, and the action that he is engaging in, I think that if he has to, and realizes that there is no choice, that he will take military action, but only as a very last resort. Then it is end game, because then he will have to convince the American people, the voter that his actions taken only after a last resort, were in fact justified. 

What can we do? Pray for our nation. Pray for our President. Continue to support the people of Israel, and ask God to continue to Bless America.

I look forward to hearing your point of view. Meanwhile, have a great night.  




I am 62 years old. I've been blogging for several years. I am into History and Politics as well as currant events. The latter being the main issues covered on these pages. I was a Community Advocate for twenty years, and a volunteer aide in a State Representatives Office in my home state of Michigan. While I have basically ceased these activities, I still watch the world around me closely and report on it as much as I can, which I might add is often. I encourage comments on my Blogs. I only ask that we keep our opinions clean and without insults threats or intimidation. I hope you take time to read The Horton Journal, and look forward to your comments.
