    What happens after an Israeli attack on Iran?

    Really?

    1. We get dragged in because it is an election year.
    2. NATO gets dragged in because we are in there
    3 Russia gets dragged in because they have a defense treaty with Iran
    4. China gets dragged in because they depend on Iranian oil
    5. Iran responds by sinking American carriers in the Persian gulf. The price of gas shoots to $25/gal.
    6. Iran responds by unleashing their allies in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Palestine on Israeli and US targets, as well as Saudi Arabia for its complicity. Gas shoots up to $50/gal.
    7. Terrorist attacks abound across the globe on American interests. US responds by instigating martial law and locking up all dark-skinned people. With China coming in on Iran's side, they lock up all yellow-skinned people as well, as was done during WW2 with Japanese-Americans.
    8. Some US/Israeli bombs find a few reactor targets, unleashing radioactive fallout that travels across Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and China, killing millions.
    9. Conventional bombs being ineffective on hidden reactors, US/Israel resort to nuclear bombs..
    10. Nuclear WW3 ensues with 99% of the planet's population is wiped out from a nuclear winter. On the plus side, global warming is no longer a problem.
    11. Years later, the 1% elite emerge from their bomb shelters to repopulate the earth. You and I are no longer here to annoy them.

    Of course they won't really lock up all "dark skinned people", and there are also far too many "yellow skinned people" to lock up, but the rest of it sounds about right. What they really want to lock up is...us.

    Ridiculous overstatement.
    :tinfoil3: !!

    Very little of that will happen if any. I don't know why so many people dream of an apocalypse when the real tragedy is happening right before our eyes. I guess slow motion destruction of society is a lot less exciting then quick strike disaster.

    There are almost 25,000 nuclear warheads in the world. When have humans ever been able to resist eventually taking their toys out of the closet and playing with them?

    Six of one half a dozen of the other.

    From other forums I've participated on I get the impression that your average Tea Party conservative has this absurd notion that if everything collapses we will just repeat 1787 as if American liberty was some kind of normative event and not the culmination of centuries of political thought and practice. I guess conservatives don't read Burke these days.
