Submission + - Iran and US: Yet Another War? (voanews.com)

iONiUM writes: "The US and Saudi Arabia have vowed that Iran must 'pay the price' for 'an alleged scheme to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States'
What is most disturbing, is that the US and Saudi Arabia could very easily use this as an excuse to start another war, especially after a statement like 'U.S. officials said Wednesday they are working toward an international response to what U.S. Vice President Joe Biden called an "outrageous act."'"

Submission + - Energy and Water Shortages May Cause a World War (vancouversun.com)

iONiUM writes: "Maj. John Sheahan, a Major in the Canadian Army, released a draft version of the report, Army 2040: First Look. In this report, he claims "Global reserves of crude oil could become problematic by 2025. This implies that ... critical energy shortages will develop in the time frame of (and perhaps prior to) 2025." He is, of course, referring to peak oil. Will there really be another world war caused by the end of the oil era, along with water shortages?"
