More Mideast Problems

November 9, 2011 - Bill Speer
Iraq still deals with the effects from years of war and suffering.

U.S. troops remain in Afghanistan. Turmoil in Egypt seems as great now as it did prior to the overthrow.

Who knows what is in store for Libya, especially after reports in recent days of several weapons storage areas left unguarded and unsupervised.

And then there comes Iran, with U.N. sources admitting this week that the country's nuclear program seems not one bent on improving living conditions for its citizens, but rather one bent on creating weapons of destruction.

Frankly, the news makes me cringe. While I don't see the U.S. having the will, nor the resources right now to get into another conflict in the region, the same can't be said for Israel.

I've always contended that if I had but one country to count as an ally, it would be Israel, whose foreign policy seems to best summed up in "act now, ask questions later."

I don't see this recent revelation sitting well with Israel's leaders, or population, for too long.

Keep your eyes focused on Iran, and how that country's leaders also posture themselves from the U.N. revelations.

I'm nervous. Are you?
