From 2003: "Conjecture 3: The War on Terror is the 'Golden Hour' -- the final chance"It is supremely ironic that the survival of the Islamic world should hinge on an American victory in the War on Terror,
the last chance to prevent that terrible day in which all the decisions will have already been made for us. That effort really consists of two separate aspects: a campaign to destroy the locus of militant Islam and prevent their acquisition of WMDs; and an attempt to awaken the world to the urgency of the threat. While American arms have proven irresistible, much of Europe, as well as moderates in the Islamic world, remain blind to the danger and indeed increase it. Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad recently "told an international conference of young Muslim leaders ... (that) ... Muslims must acquire skills and technology so they can create modern weapons and strike fear into the hearts of our enemies". Fecklessness and gunpowder are a lethal combination. The terrible ifs accumulate. -- Belmont Club

Nuke Pakistan and Iran while it will still do some good.
You say it will provoke Muslims to nuke us? I tell you that day is coming anyway. They tell you that day is coming anyway. The Muslims already accuse us of every vile conspiracy their putrid minds can concoct, laws of physics be damned.
We have a chance to destroy in one day the masses plotting against us. They know we can turn them into dust, we know we can turn them into dust. They also know we haven't the stomach to do it. Sept 11th wasn't enough to spur us to righteous anger, we are asking for far worse. A gov't that won't defend us with all of their might deserves no loyalty. A citizen that waits for our gov't to watch us evaporate on a sunny Tuesday morning is a passenger, not a citizen.
Nuke Pakistan and Iran while it will do some good. It would have been so much better to lay waste all of Afghanistan during Sept 2001. There are relatively few people there. It's right next door to all of the troublemakers, but our gov't decided to be nice and use just barely enough force and persuasion to get the job done and we are still trying to just barely get the job done 10 years later. WTF!

I don't think Pak or Iran will nuke us, but Nork and Chicoms, with Russia...on their behalf...more than likely.

The sides on the coming generational crisis war will be:
(1) China/Sunni Islam vs.
My friend John Xenakis has been predicting this outcome based on his analysis of WW Generational Theory for many years.

Soviet of Washington, you have Iran in the wrong column. The Great and Lesser Satan will be attacked. After that, China will become the major target.
The old enemy of my enemy... is followed.
