Tipping point

I often wonder if I am watching history reach a tipping point. Some of the items that caught my eye today:
  • Iran has started rationing gasoline. Now they have riots. The country is loaded with oil, but it is short on refining facilities. I'd suggest they are taking the embarrassing move and risking the social fallout because they are preparing for a siege on their resources. Siege? Yes, an attack on their country. Can't imagine who would be contemplating attacking Iran!
  • Russia test fired a sea based balistic missile.
  • North Korea test fired short range missiles.
  • The Bald Eagle is no longer on the endangered species list!
  • Scamiticians again defeated an immigration bill. I have hopes it is a fell blow for the current administration, though it is only small hopes.
