133. An opinion from someone who has lived and worked in the middle east
Beyond having the entire world in their corner, there are many millions of Shea in every corner of the Arab world. The Shea and their mullahs would become holy warriors over night. It is they who are the can of worms often talked about in the middle east. They would at the behest of their mullahs who are in bed with the Ayatollahs in Iran, begin a war the likes of which we have never seen; forfeiting their lives for their religion under siege from a bunch of stupid, reckless, shortsighted, insane, cowboy crusaders who have far to many dangerous toys to play with. Bombs and missiles will be flies to be avoided. After the bombs stop falling the war will begin in what Arabs call stealth. They will appear out of nowhere and destroy any American weak spot and that will be a shortage of troops. Saddam said that Iraq would be the mother of all battles. How far off was he? Arabs have been running far more powerful countries out of their lands for hundreds of years when they are not mutually profitable. They just take their time doing it and exact a debilitating cost.
