And now Iran’s Ahmadinejad just confirmed that Iran could go to any lengths. I think he is completely crazy to make an open statement about Israel like he did. This is bound to accelerate tensions. Ahmadinejad and our Neocons in Washington are bound to make this concoction of crises into a global nightmare.
Iraq has been in a perennial crisis ever since the US set foot there a few years back. The US Govt insists on staying the course (where have I heard this before?) With the UN report on the Hariri killing, Syria is on the verge of sanctions (another crisis).
