Keep an eye on Iran..

Postby Stu » Mon Jan 23, 2012 3:41 am

Could Iran possibly be the spark that kick-starts the beginning of the end?

Now I'm not an expert on end times, but I do know that there is supposed to be a war (WWIII ?)at some point that will have a devastating effect on the human population. Is this after the anti-christ comes into power?

Surely Israel will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons, in which case at some point they will target Iran's nuclear facilities.
Will Iran strike back?

If so, will it be all out war. Will sides be taken, and attempts to assist Iran, meaning the entrance of America in the war.

Now this all hinges on whether or not Iran will be stubborn enough to go ahead with the development of nuclear capabilities. But of course we are not dealing with logical rational individuals here, so the answer, from my point of view anyway, would be yes they will continue on their path to nuclear capability.

Of course on the other hand the Iran / Israel could (hopefully) just end in a whimper.

Well check this article out.

China is the biggest export of Iran for its oil. I do wonder how big the Chinese army is - 200 Million prehaps?

It's around 2 million actually.

In a time on national invasion they could probably come up with around 10 million trained fighting men if they really needed too. But a thing to remember is that would cost them unbelivable amunts of money to have and maintain an army around 10 million, better yet 20 million. 200 million is rediculous. Guns, ammunition, food, clothing, training, water, rucksacks. Not to mention to maintain a army of 200 million you need to have other area's of operation not strickley infantry. So on top of the other costs your talking about 500,000 million tanks, thats trillions of dollars (around 15), then armored personal carriers probably around 2 million of those and another couple trillion ect.. 200 million is a impossible army for any country in this point in time. Military isnt cheap. (e-mailed rich deem this a while back and I think he changed the number on that one article he wrote)


The entire world has around 25 million fighting men to give you idea
