I was in the car this morning with my son, and there was a radio program playing that really caught my attention. On that program an Iranian Political Expert was speaking about the latest attacks on the Israeli embassies, and she was saying that this is the closest we have ever been to a full blown middle-eastern war in just over thirty years. She went on to say that Iran is saying that Israel attacked its own embassies, she sees that this could well be the case so that this gives Israel the right of a return attack. She said that this is just one possibility. The other is that Iran did indeed attach the Israeli embassies, and retaliation would happen in the not so distant future. She also mentioned that Israel recently said to the US that they would attack Iran without first notifying the US.

The last article is perhaps the most important one. It tells us of the 24 signs that we are getting closer to a middle-eastern war…
As the nations of the world take sides, there is even the potential that we could see World War III develop. Let us hope that it never comes to that, but with the world as unstable as it is right now, you never know what may happen.
What makes war so much more likely now is that nobody has shown any signs of backing down. [read the rest to understand the 24 signs]
