Iran War or Birdflu next year?

These issues had been on my mind the past few months. How many of you think that either Iran War or Birdflu will breakout next year?

Re: Iran War or Birdflu next year?

Iran War? With who? I live in the deep south of the USA, and I don't want that. I don't think there is enough support for it.

They have a mouthy leader. We have also had that problem in history. He will be replaced some day.

Bird flu, hurricanes, great quakes cannot be predicted. It is always something we do not predict that will make the news.

Why do you ask? Lonely on a Friday night? :p

Next year?

Bushes enablers are all facing elections in November. There'll be boots on the ground i Iran Octoberish, spreading democracy at the point of a gun.

It all went so swimmingly well, in Iraq, you see.

Well, it got The Decider re-elected in 2004.

Might be a bit trickier to plan the swift boat attacks if the #1 political brain is behind bars though.

Re: Iran War or Birdflu next year?

Well, these two the pressing issues so far. Other than that, there seem to be no other apparent threats to the current booming world economy.

Iran War might not be a correct term to use, maybe "Iran Crisis" - more likely to be a trade related cold war, but even that will lead oil prices >$100. My gas bills are going up too fast.

As for bird flu, well, even if the human epidemic already started in Myammar or Cambodian village, we still would not know until the situation becomes really bad.

Unforeseen? If you think about it, a lot of stuff that are unforeseen actually could be forseen, it's just that no one knows exactly when or which year it would happen.

E.g. Indian Ocean Tsunami - it's only waiting to happen, Birdflu - they already said epidemics happen once every few decades, etc.

Re: Iran War or Birdflu next year?

As the oil price skyrockets, the spread of bird flu will be less of a risk because there'll be a lot less air travel going on, so the human -> human stuff will be easier to control.

Let's hope the nutcases hovering over the buttons in Washington get put where they belong before they do anything stupid with Iran, because will the number of Iranian fighters (both freedom fighters and Iran govt troops) that have infiltrated Iraq through Rummies porous borders, if the USA lays a finger on Iran, the US troops left in Iraq will be slaughtered.

Re: Iran War or Birdflu next year?

Actually, the more pressing issue for me is the USD, it's felled again this week! My earnings are in USD, and the trouble is, the RMB is pegged to the USD, and so even RMB went down, along with HKD. :-(

REVENGE OF GOOGLE!!
In what is a not too subtle dig at Bush's subpoena of
their search records, Google is getting their own
nasty dig at 'W' before the gag orders go into effect.

I don't know how long this will work, but go to

and type in the search word: asshole

Don’t hit the "search" button, hit the "I'm feeling
lucky" button right below the Search.

Re: Iran War or Birdflu next year?

If we talk about which bad things could happen, lets not forget that most people expects another big earthquake to hit Tokyo, like the last famous big one earthquake on 1923 (8.4 Richter) that destroyed the city.

but why people being so pessimistic? let me hear good news

Re: Iran War or Birdflu next year?

Hey, 9 months ago we had this survey, now the situation has worsen for both, particularly so for Iran problem.

1. US says Iran weapons kill marines in Iraq.
2. US sends another aircraft carrier battlegroup to persian gulf.
3. US says won't attack Iran, but BBC reports: US 'Iran attack plans' revealed.
4. Iran President says that Israel must be destroyed.
5. Iran officially defies UN sanctions to continue nuke projects.
6. Pelopsi says Bush has no authority to attack Iran.
7. Iran top nuclear scientist assasinated - this you won't find in cnn, or bbc - http://www.aljazeera.com/cgi-bin/rev...rvice_ID=12900

WTF is happening??

Maybe they are that thick headed:o
but I assume they checked the results from the last election. where I live I think was the only area to send a new Republican to Washington, very conservative area, however a war with Iran won't fly here. Many supporting the war got "sent straight home" didn't get to pass go or collect any more Washington lobbist money, sorry for rambling...

My favorite new bumper sticker that is poping up here is "Enough is Enough" Vote Democrat. Until recently you wouldn't see too many of those around here.

Re: Iran War or Birdflu next year?

My question is:

Sure Bush doesn't have authority to send invade Iran like Iraq, and there is no capability. But, is he given the authority to do a surgical airstrike on nuclear facilities? Or Israel does it?

Or is Iran playing Kim's game of bargaining for a better deal?

Bush doesn't have the authority to attack Iran, not without congress as we have not declared war on Iran and will not. The people have spoken with their votes and their polls and want out of this war; not into another one.

Yes, and if it escalates or moves to another country like Iran. A republican is going to have a snowballs chance in hell getting elected as President.
