Yesterday, I speculated about incremental World War. What I couldn't get my head around was why?
Sure, there are plenty of domestic reasons for Obama to urge a world war on the planet, not least of which is how successful world wars at jump-start a lagging economy. It would shut up conservatives, as well, as they would be hard pressed to be loyally opposed to a war they supported for so long in the first place...even tho they'd try really hard.
But now, there's a reason that makes a lot more sense than Obama abandoning his senses.
If you ascribe to the belief that the Sauds and Iranians are having a mini-Cold War for hegemony over the Middle East, then the choose up game of Global Domination begins to take form. Iran would enlist Russia and China. The Sauds would get us and NATO (and don't we feel stupid now for opposing Russia's application to NATO...)
A game of Risk but with real pieces and real, well, risks.
