Page 2 USA Syria
In my personal opinion, the next target of the US will not be Syria, but Iran. Iran is already very close to being capable of creating Nuclear Arms. Although we did 'allow' North Korea to become Nuclear Armed, I doubt very much if we will allow it to happen in such a volatile area as the mideast, particularly not a country that has sworn to wipe out Israel. It is my guess that either Israel or the US will very soon give airstrikes to wipe out Iran's capability of having/obtaining nuclear weapons. Whether or not this will lead to a larger conflict remains to be seen, but my best guess would be yes. This would explain Bush 'calling home from Europe' between 70,000 to 80,000 troops for 'repositioning'. Notice there hasn't been a lot of talk yet as to where these troops are going to be 'repositioned' TO? Don't forget that there is a precedent for striking a mideast country gaining nuclear capability...some years ago, Israel did it to Iraq.
