US-Iran Conflict--very likely, says Stephen Hadley

Stephen Hadley, President George W. Bush’s National Security Adviser, is warning that a “very high” risk exists that Iran will act out militarily against the U.S. or other allies as a result of recent sanctions. In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, Hadley said Iran is intent on acquiring nuclear weapons and a nuclear-armed Iran should be unacceptable to the U.S. 

Okey. Every one in the world right now is watching with anticipation, this potential armed conflict between the US and Iran. Several military watchers say, if ever this happens, this will usher in a new technological era in warfare. If the previous wars involved stealth and precision bombing, this "new war" will likely involve more sophisticated military inventions, like cloaking with invisibility all US military assets. Years ago, invisibility is just a figment of the imagination. Now, it is a reality with so huge an impact on warfare that it could truly widen the gap between those with technology as weaponry and those without and still using conventional methods of warfare.

If Iran finally says "it's ready", what now? Supply lines of oil will be affected. But, Iran and the Middle East are not just the only oil-producing areas. Russia, for one, has a huge supply of oil. Don't believe that yarn that says that oil firms should raise pump prices because of this war. There are other likely sources of fuel that we can tap to satisfy our energy needs. Oil firms are just greedy.
