3. Hey!

You follow the Middle East quite closely, don't you? I've noticed (and appreciated) your threads on the situation in Syria.

If you mean open war (in your prediction that Obama will not go to war with Iran), you could be right. And you're probably also correct about the proximate cause of US naval deployment. But evidence abounds that for decades much of US policy has had to do with asserting economic dominance, establishing control over resources, and gaining access to markets. So I don't think suggesting that the big picture of US behavior towards Iran involves heavy consideration of these issues should be dismissed as a nonsense theory.
