EU: A Global Army

While nothing spectacularly new or stunning, I submit the following: German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the European Union should aim to create a common army within the next 50 years
"We need to get closer to a common army for Europe," Merkel last week told German daily Bild.
Peter Schmidt, a European security and defense policy expert at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs, a Berlin-based think tank, told UPI that an EU army would also need a fortified political basis.

The Real Effect
For those that don't see the North American Union as a real problem, please take notice of what is happening over in Europe. Coming soon to a country near you...

Iran: The Gears of War Start Turning

It would seem that Iran is in the cross hairs. Please consider the following articles:

The Real Effect

What do I believe is going to happen? Yikes. This has been a war that has been a long time coming and every time it seems that Bush is ready to pull the trigger, they put the event off.

However, I believe at this point this is going to to be the case.

Bush cannot tolerate the capture of British sailors AND Iran's involvement in Iraq/nuclear weapons. So in order to minimize casualties making the war more palatable, low-yield tactical nuclear devices dispensed by a precision air strike and special forces liberating the captured soldiers will start the event. This will force Iran to close the Straits of Hormuz which will result in incremental gas increases setting record crude prices within days. (This coupled with the proposed $1 a gallon global warming gas tax will eventual cripple the American economy)
