Flash Point: War in the Middle East?

We were alerted to an article in the Asia Times today: All-out Middle East war as good as it gets. The author quotes a report from the Georgetown University’s Center for Strategic and International Studies, that “A strike by Israel on Iran will give rise to regional instability and conflict as well as terrorism”. He presents this as somewhat of a consensus view but offers a contrarian opinion to the effect of the possibility that all-out regional war is the optimal outcome for American interests.

Apart from expanding on this idea, the article we found to be valuable because it presents a point-form list of the major issues the Muslim world and the Middle east pose for the US. It discusses current dynamics in the area and how things might evolve under the scenario proposed by the author. His comments on the projected decline of Muslim states are worth the read.
