World War III: Proxy War With China, Russia, and Iran?
This would of course go along with the 2012 World War III scenario aka "Mayan Prophecy". Syria could start something that we would not be able to finish and would become a global war and crisis: http://globalpublicsquare.blogs.cnn.com/2012/02/10/zakaria-arming-the-syrian-opposition-is-risky/?hpt=hp_bn2
The question to ask here is that if it is wise to push on situations in a year that is already prophecied for such destruction? Why would we as Americans encourage Saudi inspired Wahabis and Muslim Brotherhood groups to take over Syria? We would have a lot more to lose than gain in this situation and hopefully people recognize this before we put our foot too deep in the tar pit.
