I made this prediction about six months ago, here it is again: Israel will attack Iraq during the month of August 2008; once it starts, most, if not all countries surrounding Israel will retaliate against Israel. "Enter the United States". Hope for the best. Why do you think the oil price is so high? Saudi Arabia has raised the price of there oil to garner piles of American dollars, in the event there is a war. Depending on the outcome, Saudi Arabia will be setting in a pretty good position financially to dictate just about whatever they want. The will have the money for control, and the oil for power over the United States and there allies. In my humble opinion, there is only one way to stop the potential Holocaust that is pending. I think Mr. Obama has the only sensible solution. I also believe Governor Bill Richardson, of New Mexico, would make a excellent VP. For those of you who doubt the above, I suggest you go back and read your history regarding Israel and the greed that has followed that country from the beginning. For peace, they (Israel), MUST give up a portion of the land they claim as theirs. Then, and only then, will there be a potential for a peace settlement.
