The Middle East Arms Race

The lack of any coherent strategy by President Obama with regard to Iran has fostered yet another unintended consequence.  By allowing that country to move ahead unabated with their nuclear weapons program, he has triggered an arms race in the tinder box that is the Middle East.

Recently the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia ordered over $123 Billion worth of arms from the United States and additional armament from other countries in a direct response to the looming threat from Iran.  Israel will be acquiring 20 new F-35 Stealth Fighters.  Russia is shipping highly sophisticated anti-ship missiles to Syria and has previously sold a state-of-art anti- aircraft systems to Iran.  In addition North Korea and China continue to sell military supplies to Iran and Syria.

Out of this flood of arms into this volatile region, a significant percentage will, either intentionally or by accident, fall into the hands of terrorists such as Hezb'allah or Al Qaeda.  The regime in Iran is motivated by extremism, hatred and a sense of destiny to conquer the countries around them.

Fear of Iran and their about to be puppets in Syria and Lebanon (soon to be dominated by Iran's creation, Hezb'allah) will put this region on a razor's edge of tension.  The arms build-up will continue unabated by all sides. 

With the cast of characters and historic animosity in this part of the world, as happened in Sarajevo in 1914, the slightest provocation, misunderstanding, or perceived aggressive act could trigger a devastating Middle-East war which will involve the United States.

Unfortunately President Obama is a creature of the liberal mindset of those in the 20th Century directly responsible for the death of untold millions that believed they could, by sheer force of their will and glibness, reason with those determined to conquer others.  Because of a lack of leadership and determination the world is witnessing yet again the coming together of the witch's brew that will spell disaster.
