    Now that the Middle Class has been all but elminated and we are now a country headed for Have or Have not status, will the rumors of Unrest & Violence come true.

    A lot of theories out there these days...re that the American public is fairly well fed up with our Economic climate even tho the US Government says we are well on the road to recovery and that the Automotive and Housing industries have stabilized....

    Your thoughts....

    Looks like our current gov't has gotten its story line from Mr.Goebbels. Germany was winning the war until the rulers killed themselves. Too much to hope for. Don't believe anything that comes from the current batch of politicians. They have lost credibility quicker than any previous administration.

    The most interesting thing to me is the open and widespread talk about armed civil unrest. This was a threat used by the left for years. Now it comes from the center and the right. The real question is, "Is anyone listening?"

    When, not if, Israel attacks Iran the world's oil supply will be seriously curtailed. At a time of great international fiscal turmoil, this will lead to a worldwide depression. Americans, who have lots of oil still in the grouind but have not been allowed to exploited it, will be extremely angry at those who have forbidden access to it. It could come to blows.

    The next questions are, "What will the government do about it? Will they bring in the military to put down such revolts? Will the military fire on US citizens?" The old appelation of "may you live in interesting times" sure applys here!

    Israel will not destroy the oilfields.. The removal of the threat will be done with surgical percision.. Israel does not have the capacity nor the notion to turn the world against them.. Iran.. while playing hardball has done nothing to prevent the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ from oil to keep pouring in..

    Iran has already deep hole capped many wells.. so no target is visiable from the air.. and only an almost direct hit would cause dammage to a deep hole capped well..

    Looking at history.. and at one time being close to people in the Israeli military.. The plan is already in place.. Only the time and date is a mystery.. And.. as always.. they will go it alone.. That is not to say.. some other countries will not happen to have their equipment in Israel to be upgraded..and refurbished.. It might happen to get used..

    Those of you what know the real story of Entebe will remember.. the government seized anything that was needed for the operation.. Schnitzers new MB limo was the only one in Israel..to mimic Dada's limo.. Schnitzer never got it back..It was left on the ground.. So much for war..

    No one wants a rogue country out there.. No even the Arabs.. While they all hate Jews and Americans.. They have no love of any infadel..which pretty much covers the rest of the world.. I predict Iran will stand alone.. and fall alone.. The rest of the Arab nations still want our money..

    BTW.. those capped wells.. we have here to.. Until they remove the well head tax..they will stay non productive.. With the current administration..I suppose that will be for some time yet..

    If Israel attacks Iran, you can bet your ass that Iran will block the strait of Hormuz which will affect the world supply of crude being shipped. This will also cause panic on the world crude prices.

    From another thread. Very interesting. What the Russian analysts think about an upcoming Civil War.

    PerazziBigBore,

    I never suggested that the Israelis would target the oil fields. No, they will target the nuclear sites as they have done before. Nonetheless, such action would close down or seriously curtain the supply of oil to the west (and the east like Japan). Do you think that the Israelis know where many of these sites are? You hjad better believe it.

    The best hope is that there will be a polular uprising in Iran resulting in regime change to a more moderate governmemt. With a very young population, this is possible maybe even likely. Also, an attack on Iran might provoke such an uprising but this is pure speculation. What is not speculative is that Israel WILL act - and soon! Months not years.

    I am hoping the American public wakes up and this current crop of politicians trying to destroy our freedom loses power through elections. But boy are they going to leave a lot of destruction between then and now. Americans would knowingly vote for the devil himself if they thought there was a dollar in it for them. But these crooks are going to leave us all broke. I think they will be voted out.

    The United States has plenty of oil.

    What they don't have is an industrial base, and that takes a lot of time to create.

    If unrest happens, it will be in the ghettos first. When the supply of Colt 45 runs out.

    There are predictions of cannibalism some places too.

    Eat the Rich.
