Anyone recall the history surrounding the change in our global economies, cultures, and the events leading up to WWII? Better yet - think about this - in many ways - WWI itself set things in motion that led to the second World War.....
Fast Forward. Today we've been engaging in the Middle East directly for how long? Stage is set, conditions are changing, stability is changing across the region.
Ready for this? Just a few thoughts....
Here's my slightly beer-induced thought on WW3
Egypt heads more extremist
Israel has to react to Iran more boldly. In fact without the balance prior to Egypt's departure from stability - That'll secure an unfettered connection across N.Africa through to the Peninsula.
Iran touches off WW3
Did anyone see the news today about the Iranians pushing a few ships through the Suez? Oil prices jumped just at the initial news on the world markets. Enterprise Crosses the Suez, Israel Claims Iran Sending Through Warships

Impact back here in the states - way I see it - would mainly be economic reaction to the events unfolding there. If Israel opens up a can on those around them - that whole region will tip the rest of us into a global economic depression.
So stock up food, grow your own garden, hunt/fish, make sure you know what places will be less populated that are nearby if food riots ever were to hit. There was also a bit of news on CNBC today about a potential for major food price spikes.... along with the inflation we all know is already likely.

I plan to stock up on a few good bottles of scotch as well for when things start getting further along.....
Oh - here's another interesting thing many people seemed to miss:
