Iran will become one of our most important trading partners in the next few years.
We will "normalize" relations.
The U.S. has spent its wad on Iraq and Afganistan.
In the meantime, we have allowed the influence of Iran to spread across the Middle East.
The Shia have proven to be more capable and willing to fight than the Sunni.
Iran will take control of Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain and every other place that has oil. Eventually including Saudi Arabia.
There was a time when the Soviet Union was the great threat. We now build McDonald's there.
There was a time that China was the great threat. They now own more of our Treasury bonds than any other country.
There was a time when we could have controlled or eliminated the fascist theocracy in Iran.
All we want is the oil.
If Iran is going to get it, and we can't stop it, we are going to become bosom buddies.
The arbitrary country borders of the Middle East drawn up in the past 60 years will go away. Don't bother studying the geography.
The U.S. will allow Iran to have its way, in exchange for oil and a form of peace.
The net result is until the U.S. stops its dependency on cheap oil, Iran will control the U.S., and Israel will quake in its boots for years to come.
