If someone had asked you a year ago what would be the most efficient way to cause a major war in the Middle East, you might well have said: Giving the mullahs in Iran the opportunity to get advanced conventional weapons, ICBMs, nuclear weapons and tens of billion of dollars to fund terrorist organizations and destabilize other countries in the region. You might have argued that a regime that does not hesitate to attack targets in Washington or Berlin might not be the most prudent one to shower with gigantic quantities of money and the deadliest weapons.
If one knows anything about the regime in Iran, it is difficult to understand how U.S. President Barack Obama’s agreement with Iran could create anything other than chaos and war in the Middle East.
The content of the Iran nuclear agreement creates the perfect conditions for a major war in the Middle East — one that could spread and start a major regional conflict.
Despite what President Obama likes to say, it is not true that the agreement “permanently prohibits Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon” or “cuts off all of Iran’s pathways to a bomb”. The agreement means that the U.S. has accepted that after 15 years, or sooner, Iran may build as many bombs as it likes.
1.He Can Do It!
The Republican-controlled U.S. Congress has been unable (or unwilling) to oppose the dictates of a power-grabbing President. This spells the end of the voters’ confidence in Republican promises, opening the door for a new second party (led by Donald Trump?) and relegating the weak and ineffective Republicans to third party status.
2.He Doesn’t Want to Do It!
Trump is having more fun and attention than he ever dreamed of having, but if he were elected President it would be a disaster to his financial empire and his career as an incredible businessman. As President he’d have to work around the clock for peanuts. The millions that he could grab as President that lure his opponents, Democrat and Republican alike would be (for him) just chump change, so although he’s enjoying the campaign, he really doesn’t want to win the Presidency.

Dry Bones- Israel’s Political Comic Strip Since 1973
Afsana Lachaux, now 47, had been a successful civil servant and worked as a policy adviser for Gordon Brown and David Blunkett when she met French engineer Bruno in 2008.They married two years later, moved to Dubai and had a son, Louis, but when the marriage broke down in 2011 Afsana’s dream turned into a nightmare as she was branded an unfit mother and falsely accused of kidnap before her little boy was cruelly taken away from her.Reasons given by the court for awarding custody of the child to his father rather than Afsana include her inability to breastfeed, the fact that Louis suffered from eczema, that some of her friends are gay, and that she sent an “un-Islamic” text message to her ex-husband wishing him a happy Christmas.
Iran will be using some amount of their coming new found wealth which with its sales of oil and weapons will be a renewable funding starting with the billions it will receive right up front after the deal passes the Congress either outright or through inability to override Presidential veto. There have been credible reports that Hezballah has been once again actively seeking to convert members of the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades into cells which Iran can control to perform shooting attacks and eventually planting IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) which Iran will provide either through teaching these cells the methods for building their own or by providing the knowledge along with the necessary parts and leave the rest to the best trained to do the logistical planning. This recruitment drive, for lack of a better term, is being led by an operative of Hezballah known to Israeli intelligence named Qais Obeid…

A small balding man storms into a local bar and demands, “Gimme a double of the strongest whiskey you got. I’m so mad, I can’t even see straight.” The bartender, noticing that the little man is a bit the worse for wear, pours him a double of Southern Comfort. The man swills down the drink and says, “Gimme another one.” The bartender pours the drink, but says, “Now, before I give you this, why don’t you let off a little steam and tell me why you’re so upset?” So, the man begins his tale. “Well, I was sitting in the bar next door, when this gorgeous blonde slinks in and actually sits beside me at the bar. I thought, “Wow, this has never happened before.” You know, it was kind of a fantasy come true. Well, a couple of minutes later, the blonde leans over and asks if I’d like…
