    Honestly we all knew it in 2005 that at any moment Iran may be attacked and in fact Iranian Army was formally in warning condition!. Bush did his max in 2007-2008, but as Iranians before has predicted in 2006 ( even they were discussing the level that western economies can carry without going to bankruptcy!!!= , before doing anything his intention and the perception of war was enough to make oil price jumped sky! Russia exploited the condition and thought US and Europe are damped by oil price so attacked Georgia! and then oil price jumped 147 usd/barrel and then at first US housing maarket and then all western economies went into bankruptcy! Iranians also enjoyed nice sanctions with pepper of rape and turture in Ahmadinejad's prison! So nice politicians are playing with people's life!!!so nice and so simple! It is why I am saying you do not move for war! it will destroy Iran and US and israel all together. People in the middle east has some information that you do not have. Westerns do not undertsand the ME.
