It Will Be the Point of an Arrow that Concludes the Iranian Debate

in response to reader comment: Attacking Iran will mean attacking Iran, Russia and China, if Putin gets his wish.

As the sky is streaked with the contrails of in-flight ballistic arrows and the stupified Middle Eastern powers that did not sign on to Iran's plunge into the depths of nuclear oblivion are taken aback in fear of the next few minutes, will they then realize the futility of the rebellion foisted upon the region by the Iranian mullahs; or does the world finally recoil at the terrorist's thought of the unthinkable coming to fruition in their own shortened lifetime? Dr. Pipes is partially right: the battle option is the only humanist option that will force Iran's revolutionary rebels to peaceful restraint; but it is not going to develop as many might think. Israel might be on the defensive and striking a preemptive blow may be her strategic hand, but the lead-up to any of these potential actions remains to be played out.

The serving cups of platitudes and invectives directed towards Israel are almost filled, the cups brimming with surface tensions that can barely contain what is expected to happen as Iran's leadership walks away from the microphones and move into the next part of their own plans away from prying eyes - the remaking of the Middle East in consort with the legacy of the Ayatollah Khomeini. From an American's perpsective, it is embarrassing to note that the current American Administrative Chief Executive has all but given the green light to whatever may be fuming in the halls of Teheran's political conscience while the Chief Executive has been standing down on America's resolve to see what transpires next.

For quite som time, there has been a lot of talk, discussion and diatribe as to how the Iranian political antagonism against Israel could be curtailed; and yet what is seemingly missed is that not all want to see Iran's leadership stopped. Most strikingly, the northern big boy on the next block (also by proxy) has indicated allowing Iran's revolutionary leadership access to Russian defense sources as the nuclear build-up continues to its now guaranteed conclusion. In confluence with what is the now constant confrontations in any area the Russians see fit to exercise military muscle to make a point: one special one may derive authentication from a certain potential threat; that Iran's military ambitions can be see in alliance with Russia's.

As an aside, the debate to 'delegitimize' the Iranian military option has become a moot consideration and all that may be remaining to be seen is the outcome of Iraq's debacle with ISIS/ISIL/IS after Syria is finally silenced. The the true ambitions of the Iranian mullah military will be on the move and her proxies given the 'go' by separate proxy of the U.N. resolution on the 'Palestinian' occupation.
