13. It will have severe economic effects here.
I think the other shoe will be a major unload on the USD. Other countries will dump dollars and that'll have the effect of making it worth less. Remember, we are a trading nation now and we rely on others for lots of goods....if the dollar devalues, everything will cost more. This is one way they can hurt our economy without damaging infrastructure...a different sort of nuetron bomb.

But the Americans who will pay the real price will be our soldiers in Iraq. I can only imagine what they will be thinking when they hear the idiots in the White House are considering the of bombing Iran. They know damn well what would be in store for every soldier in Iraq. Think of Mogadishu, only on the scale of an entire country coming at us.
