It’s certainly starting to look that way, with Syria on the tipping point and an Iranian oil embargo in place, every day that ticks by puts the Iranian mullahs and the Syrian regime on softer footing.
Here’s the additional catch: Iran could very well instruct Hezbollah to play its aces all at once. Between a Syrian government looking to re-assert itself, a Hezbollah looking for a moment to strike, Iraq in turmoil and an Iranian regime looking for an out… the mix could very well be in for a wider regional conflict.
…or it could be nothing.
Still, the American people certainly did not see Libya coming up on the radar. Now we have 16,000 troops on the ground. With the massive NATO presence in the Persian Gulf right now, there’s enough powder in the keg.
