Recently I was speaking with a friend about the situation in Iraq, specifically regarding the U.S. pullout. Because of the balance has been disrupted so significantly in the Middle-east by U.S. actions, I mentioned that Iran is a serious threat and postulated that perhaps they were the next target.

He sort of chuckled, but then it struck me that the idea wasn’t really far fetched. In fact, it was a very viable plan, regardless of how insidious such actions would be. There certainly is a larger play being staged than we can grasp.

It’s also apparent that Another Joe isn’t first to the punch in considering this. And my knowledge is admittedly quite limited in this arena. In other words, if I could follow the dots to an Iranian conflict, I’m sure others knew about it a long time ago, and with excellent detail and intelligence I never considered.

Jim Rickards has some thoughts below, with the full article linked. It’s certainly worth reading this short article.

Kind Regards,
Another Joe

Jim Rickards – War With Iran has Begun, Gold to Break $2,000

There are joint exercises going on between the US and Israel.  At the same time Iran is conducting war games.  There are a lot of moving pieces on the chessboard at this point.  This is not just war gaming or thinking about what might happen, the pieces have actually begun to move on the chessboard.
