Middle Eastern situation grows messy & tense

As the Parliament of Turkey has " voted overwhelmingly in favour of empowering the (Turkish) armed forces to launch a cross-border assault against Kurdish insurgents based in northern Iraq ", the United States and Russia and its Caspian allies have also adopted opposite positions on Iran with President Bush warning that a nuclear-armed Iran could lead to World War III. Oil price has already been affected by the escalation and complication of the crises.

The same headline on the Middle East would have been written many times, under different circumstances in 1948, 1957, 1967, 1973, 1979, 1991, 2003.

There are plenty of Christian fundamentalist predictions that the battle at the end of world will be fought in the Middle East.

I won't comment on their religious beliefs, but this particular prediction has a significant logical basis to it.
