What If Iran Annexes Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Armenia? Gas @ $50 A Gallon

Looks like the U.S. Military/Mediagarchy Complex is gearing up to attack Iran again. But unlike Afghanistan and Iraq, or even Vietnam, Iran can actually take things away from us.

Israel is massing warplanes in the Caucasus for an attack on Iran, it was revealed yesterday.

Preparations are underway to launch the military attack from Azerbaijan and Georgia, reports our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej, quoting military sources.
