"Attacking Iran is a Bad Idea"
The inevitability of the first real world war hangs over the head of our collective generation. To deny this is to live blindly. No greater ideology of world peace holds sway over the immediate gratification of modern consumer capitalism. The defense industry builds bombs, states purchase bombs, states use bombs, the defense industry builds bombs. World politics, at the present, can easily be viewed as a war, albeit one who's physical violence has existed only at the lowest intensities. Yet the economic and geo-political manueverings point clearly towards a final confrontation, a climax in this chapter of the nuclear age. Perhaps, indeed, the turning point lies two decades off, but perhaps only two months. Mazarr effectively demonstrates the axis of the current American/Iranian relations. Notably in relation to the continued nuclear activities of Iran. If the United States were to be so foolish as to engage in a limited bombing campaign against Iran's nuclear installations, there is no doubt that Iran, acting out of intelligent self-interest, would respond emphatically. I feel the question that deserves to be asked out of this is indeed, would such a turn of events act as the lynch pin for the world war we're all waiting to fight?
