and the anchor was reporting that The Marines were calling for an involuntary call-up for 2500 Marines for another possible 2 year tour!!. The talking heads were saying that the military is weary of fighting on 2 fronts and that the fact that we didn't go into Iraq with enough troops to begin with has really turned out to be a problem. Also there are far less soldiers and Marines volunteering and they have raised the maximum age for new recruits to 42 years old.
So as I was listening to all this I had a thought...could it be..that Iran NOT Al Qaeda..is fueling the insurgency and the civil war there in the hopes that we will NOT leave, but we will stay longer and longer and continue to send more and more soldiers and money into the Iraq war, thus tiring and eventually weakening us to the point where we wouldn't be able to fight Iran of we had to.
Iran is basically giving everyone the finger these days in regard to their nuclear enrichment program and in essence there is nothing anyone can do about it.
Could Iran be behind this civil war in Iraq? we know they are funding Hezbollah...hmmmmmm who "won" that little skirmish in Southern Lebanon..??
In any case...I am no war scholar and although I do follow politics, I tend to be mired in my own opinion and I often run on emotion too. But I thought..this "theory" was somewhat plausible..are they are weakening and dividing this country??..the split appears to grow more and more each day...
what do YOU think? Plausible? or am I totally off my nut?
