Many believe that if Barack Obama attacks Syria it will be the catalyst for a large scale regional war. Iranian leadership is threatening attacks on any country that supports Obama's war on Syria and says it would consider an attack on Damascus as an attack on it's 35th province and would act.
Iran could activate Hezbullah and it's Iranian Revolutionary Guard and could possibly close the Strait of Hormuz, cutting off 20 percent of the world's supply of oil.
The head of the Revolutionary Guard is quoted as saying retaliation would include "the immediate attack," and the "immediate destruction of Israel."
Barack Obama could very well kick off World War III.
