Israel attacks the Gaza Strip 280+ dead in 2 days

Posted by Adrian on December 29, 2008

A self perpetuating conflict with madmen on both sides, still no one will win this, especially Israel – who’s government credibility is dissipating into a hole and may never resurrect. With it’s biggest alley the USA collapsing (economically), the power shift in the middle east could change dramatically and quickly. Israel is making huge errors with their disproportional counter aggression.

Iran is the key player here, the world doesn’t care about the Palestinians, but if Iran comes into this conflict or creates an oil embargo. This may force the UN and Europe too negotiate a peace deal.

The Arab union is pretty much hopeless and Egypt couldn’t care less, Saudi Arabia doesn’t care either.

Does Iran have the balls? Well they hold the most cards, China will protect Iran’s oil routes, so Iran could bring China into this if Iran tightens the screws of the oil supply – as Western warships try to end embargo.

Biggest question of all, does Obama have the balls? The US could end this conflict once and for all (by negotiating a proper peace deal with power sharing in that region), so the US holds some cards.
