Iran is in the news again. Talking heads are saying Iran will do something in October to impact our elections.
Here’s my uninformed opine about Iran and their games.
Way back when, Iran once took our embassy hostage and held US citizens hostage for 444 days. Surprise, surprise, as soon as Reagan took office, Iran turned loose the hostages; they did not want to deal with Reagan.
Fast forward to 2012. I will summarize two thoughts as succinctly as I can. First, Iran would rather deal with Obama than Romney. They will therefore do some dirty trick that will enhance Obama’s standing. Look for Iran to offer in late October to stop enriching uranium. Why? So the lemmings and sheep all fawn over Obama for “saving” the world once again. Iran does not want to deal with Romney as they know he will take decisive action if needed.
Second thought on Iran and their nukes. All along I was thinking this threat was unrealistic. I mean, Israel is so small, a nuke strike would damage not only Israel but also Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, etc. Not a practical option.
However, my thinking has shifted. Iran only needs very small nukes to do what I think they might be planning. Launch about six small nukes over Israel and explode them just high enough above ground that the resultant EMP shuts down mostly only Israel. Coupled with a ground attack, this approach would be very effective.
End of story, Iran needs Obama in the WH.
