Given the rumors that Israel will declare war, given that Israel intends some action against Syria as well as Lebanon, given that Iran has a defense pact with Syria and has flown nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani to Damascus so that an attack on Syria is an attack on Iran, given that Iran is on high alert, that Israel is mobilizing, and the Sunni-Shiite civil war in Iraq is coming to a head...
Tomorrow might be one of those turning points where a simmering conflict breaks into a conflagration. I have no predictions, I hope I am wrong, but frankly, it reminds me of the runup to WWI, only faster. Let us all pray for the best.
