Will Israel Attack Iran?

As for the top-ranking military personnel with whom I’ve spoken who argued that an attack on Iran was either unnecessary or would be ineffective at this stage, Barak said: “It’s good to have diversity in thinking and for people to voice their opinions. But at the end of the day, when the military command looks up, it sees us — the minister of defense and the prime minister. When we look up, we see nothing but the sky above us.”

    It’s all a bit frightening, really.

    Yes, Josh. The prophecies. Are we really on the verge of Armegeddon? Or Revelations?

    There are some (many?) who would love to see the “end of time” come as predicted in their life-time (and make it so, if within their power). “I was there when….” At the end, they’d be telling stories to no one.

    At that time, if it ever comes to be, will all story be lost?

    Is this a Betteridge’s Law situation?

    (I just realized the previous sentence would make a badass headline)

    Let me rephrase. “When the world ends, all story will be lost.”

    I guess there is no stand against the test of time.

    Time’s a mother-fucker, y’all.
