Two current headlines basically tell the story:
"Israeli warships rehearse for Iran attack in Red Sea"
"Ahmadinejad: Iran will 'bring down' Western foes"
We seem to be moving closer and closer to a conflict between Israel and Iran, and the rhetoric is increasing. Now, with Israeli warships in the region, in a very public display in what "has been described as a rehearsal for a possible attack on Iran", it seems that we have moved yet one step closer to war. Unless we see a miracle, it seems obvious that war will take place in the near future.
