Look for the BushBama War on Terra to enter a phase of rapid expansion soon.
The new administration has already bettered its predecessor by expanding the illegal (and unwinnable) war in Afghanistan to an illegal, unwinnable war on Pakistan, a US ally. Now, after a ritual display of phony reluctance to mollify world opinion, plus those four or five US leftists who haven't turned into Limbaugh-like werewolves thirsting for the blood of swarthy foreigners with the inauguration of a Democratic-brand president, the US is caving into Israeli demands which include "massive new sanctions against the Iranian government."
This is likely a major step toward the US attack on Iran that's been hanging fire for years, awaiting the proper pretext to launch.
Meanwhile the US is looking to increase its military presence in Colombia. Aside from embroiling the US in yet another civil war, which US interference will inevitably make worse - look how well US drug-war "assistance" to Mexico has panned out - look for the bigger Colombian footprint to provide a launch-point for indirect, and eventually direct, military action against Venezuela.
Why would any government ever do anything for a primary reason other than to benefit those who run that government?
