Iran, anybody? Part III

Okay, so maybe it will end up being Iran attacking the US? I'm not sure what's going on over there. One on hand, Bush is heading to the Middle East, so Iran needs to up its profile. And, what with the whole "are they nuclear" question, they also want to look strong. Especially considering that report late last year about them not having nuclear weapons. Iran is situated strategically at the Strait of Hormuz, which is not good - they can sink ships or use armed vessels to keep anyone from passing through there, like, say...oil from the Gulf. That's always a problem whenever you talk about a war with Iran. And then there's the Russia-China situation. What would they do if a war started with the US and Iran? The world is becoming multi-polar it seems. I don't remember for certain, but I think that was the least stable of the systems. I'll try and look it up.
