How will things play out with the 'Axis of Evil'? In particular - how will the nuclear standoff with North Korea be solved? Will we attack Syria (4 sided axis?)? What's up with Iran?

We've got all those troops in the region, shouldn't we put them to good use there, or should we ship them over to the Korean peninsula? Wink



Now is the time to make real the promises of Democracy.

All I can say is that the conflict in the Middle East is about to be "on and poppin'" if the Europeans continue this campaign based on oil and racism. And no matter how many police we have in this country we are not physically or mentally ready to experience the same type of action that has been going on in the Middle East for the last 30 + years.

This should please Israel greatly, but it seems like Syria is up on the chopping block.
This is my prediction on what's going to happen:
1. US- Syria, hand over the Iraqis who fled to your country.
2. Syria- US, we don't have them.
3. US- Don't make us use force.
3. Syria- We don't have any.
4. US- Fine, we have to regime change you.

This will probably happen, the US already did it concerning weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. This time there's no UN to remind the US of logic either. I give it six months tops before Jr. opens up a new war on Syria. If he wins the election he'll wait until Jan. 20, 2004 to announce yet another war on Iran.

Anybody who is actually thinking that we can fight a war on the Korean Peninsula is smoking some serious crack. The North Koreans have been preparing to fight another Korean War since the first one grounded to an uneasy peace in 1953. They have a 1.1 million man Army that will not run up the white flag at the presence of the American Army, if anything those folks are prepared to fight to the bitter end. Hell, there are still pot shots fired at American and South Koreans patrols on the DMZ that seperates South and North Korea. That doesn't sound like anybody that is overly concerned about the American Army being a threat to them.
Nuclear assaults should be the last thing coming out of anyone's mouths. The US is already planning nuclear carpet bombing in Iran, which naturally is making everyone else but-shit paranoid. The US better change it's plans about Iran before things get serious.

When you talk about dropping nukes, that's serious shit and it's bound to cause international tension. Now every other nation (even US Allies) are afraid that the US might aim nukes at them if they refuse to go along, which naturally their response will be pulling out their own nukes ready to defend themselves if we do attack them.

The rational thing to do would be for the US to call off nuclear carpet bombing of Iran and start peace talks with other nations. Nuclear assault is serious shit. DON'T EVER PULL OUT NUKES ON ANYONE UNLESS YOU'RE WILLING TO ACCEPT THE CONSEQUENCES OF A POSSIBLE WWIII TO FOLLOW IT.

Like that old saying when someone pulls out a gun, "Don't pull it out unless you're gonna use it."

Really! I refuse to call it "we" because this is the working of the US gov't and military-industrial complex. They don't have my blessings or my vote of confidence.
Now that the axis of evil has for most been quantified thru recent news events, its an interesting scenario. China will reign in N Korea eventually, since they are the only ones who can, and will undoubtedly see this in their own best interest. N Korea is in reality doing nothing more than trying to extort from the US alot of freebies, since thats worked for them in the past. They act much like an organized crime syndicate, "pay us to protect yourselves from us". But N Korean power is over-rated militarily, and its not even a 'nuclear' issue for certain, since noone's ever been able to confirm much of what they claim. The pressure needs be placed on China to resolve the lunacy coming from N Korea.

Syria will not be attacked by anyone other than local militia movements, and will likely be transformed from within, not from external forces.

Iran is probably the most problematic of the axis, but there is opposition within Iran with many pro-democracy factions who could win the country electorially, thereby defusing the current regime's extremist hardliners eventually. Thats the most likely scenario.
