Are we close to war?

With all what's happening in the middle east, and Tony Blair and Bush wanting to get saddam, what's the chance of an all out war coming?

You guys do the fighting, we'll take the refugees! :s6:

Last I heard was that everyone just wanted to back off (except the Israelis :s5 )

All out war? I don't really think so, if anything bad happened I should think it would be just those in the middle east (don't forget Eygpt), the US and UK fighting, probably the other NATO countries trying to calm things down. The countries also have a more organised infustructure than something like Afghanistan where it took a lot more time to find things to hit. We have all seen how quickly Israel can take ground many times in the past.

OK I'm not looking for a political discussion here because its inapropriate, but I find what you said here a bit unfair and possibly biased. Both sides are at fault here, and niether side have been helping the situation in recent times.

I know I shouldn't say this but sometimes I wish they just do it and be done with it.
As long it stays in their territory let them arabs kill each other they've been nothing but trouble for the rest of the world for many many years.

I must say that Bush and Blair have picked the worst possible time to start rattling the sabre against Saddam. With the region already on the brink with the Israel crisis, the last thing we need is the warmongers to make an already unstable situation even worse.

There are only 2 states to be in:
Western Australia, and pissed.

You think it's the arabs fault and the Jews did nothing wrong?

i think the arabs definately get the raw end of the deal. Im not anti semite, but i definately think that the israelis are being sneaky bastards in this whole matter.

its not like yassar even has controls of the factions anymore, he is mearly a scapegoat to shoot at.

Then again, it really give the americans an excuse to land there because the arabs are now ALL "terrorists".

Well I meant the region as a whole.
Yes the Israelis are just as much to blame with the current crisis.
These arabs are hostile to the jews but they can be hostile to each other as seen over the years like Iran-Iraq war, Iraq invading Kuwait.
You see Saddam giving a damn about Palestinians now but I bet my left teste if they were in Kuwaits place he would have invaded them instead.

But not with this. Sorry, I can't really understand what you are saying here.
