This will almost certainly begin the Third World War. It may take a month or two to unfold and play out over six months or so~ or it may go nuclear and advanced biological in less than two weeks ~ but it is certain to take the entire World into its darkest nightmare in human history.
From 9/11/01 till 9/11/08 has been a 'seven year period' of war, growing police state laws, and now economic crisis of ever-growing scope ~ rather like the Tribulation mentioned in the Bible. I mention this because, besides the "Operation Brimstone" name, what is unfolding is so massive and dramatic in scope ~ far greater of an impact, and compacted into a more "intense" shorter time frame of 21st Century warfare, than World War I or even World War II had on the human race ~ that it is literally biblical in scope. The period of regional wars (Afghanistan and Iraq), the Tribulation of the last seven years, is now morphing into global/World War involving nuclear and advanced biological strategic weapons of mass destruction.
Reality in geo-political military strategy and global grand strategy is like space chess ~ played on several levels.
On the level of the stated neo-con objective, using American power to make the Middle East safe for Israel, the neo-con strategy is a failure and about to become terminally so.
If you want to live, you will begin to purchase enough food, gas, medicine, water, necessities for at least six months and be ready to self-quarantine yourself and your family. Things are apt to get "most interesting" over the next couple of weeks to six months.
