Okay, so here's a challenge: re-read the apocalypse scenario from Battlegrounds, and then read any of the news reports regarding the Syria/Turkey conflict. Have goosebumps yet?

I'm just sayin'.

Yeah, Clayton and Co. really nailed it with that section. Let's hope they aren't quite so spot on with the rest of it, yeah?

*hat tip*  I would rather not ever be right about the superflu scenario, though.

To make things more fun, Turkey is a North Atlantic Treaty signatory.  If anyone else - like, say, Iran - decides to assist Syria against Turkey, the Turks may decide it's time to invoke Article V.

Fortunately (and hopefully), I hear the Iranian president is quite the lame duck now the devaluation of the national currency has wiped out 40% of Iranians' wealth in the last 3 months. Lame duck as in, his-VP-and-many-cabinet-members-have-been-arrested-lame duck. Barring an act of war against Iran (*cough cough*) I think he'd be very hard pressed to make any military action at this time. Here's to hoping...

He has little enough control over much of the Quds Force that I would not take Iranian action off the table.

Oh, and Chavez "won" the election in Venezuela, so the odds of something unpleasant coming up from the south over the next few years are up.  Sad

Or Iran completely falls apart.

I hope we help out if the Iranian people throw a good rebellion.

You guys read the new article about Turkey forcing down a Russian plane that was carrying Russian arms to Syria when it flew through their airspace?  Then they took all of the arms off it before letting it leave.

Is this where, wait for it... Shit gets real?

Anyone else sense that things are starting to come unglued?

Syrian airliner transiting Turkish airspace with fraudulent manifests.  Forcing her to land and seizing the contraband seems reasonable.

Of course I think we should be putting together a Lincoln Brigade to help overthrow the Syrian tyrant, but I'm an idealist like that.
