Quiz for the armchair generals

The wackadoo pictured left wants to build nukes and push the West into a cataclysmic holy war.

A: The West has no babies, no vision, and no coherent religion or ideology to hold it together.
B: The West has enough "citizens" who share his religion and political philosophy to cause serious trouble.
C: He and his cohorts are sitting on 2/3 of the world's oil supply.
D: When he moves on Israel, as he's promised, the U.S. will jump in immediately (rightly or wrongly).
E: Russia has been a quasi-ally of his nation for years.

Any realistic suggestions? Does the U.S.:

1: Start a war, pre-emptively, like Iraq.
2: Join a war, after we or Israel take a nuke to a major city.
3: Attempt a 1980's-style junta by arming rebels and/or assasinations.
4: Engage in diplomacy.

Your answer must be within the realm of possibility, and therefore not include any of the following elements:

I: Civilization-wide Rosary praying to Our Lady of Victory.
II: Reimposition of the Crusader States or the Eastern Roman Empire.
III: Any urge for self-preservation from Europe (or the Vatican).

When all else fails... turn to Randy Newman for answers. Have you ever paid attention to the lyrics for his song "Political Science"?

No one likes us
I don't know why
We may not be perfect
But heaven knows we try
But all around even our old friends put us down
Let's drop the big one and see what happens

We give them money
But are they grateful?
No they're spiteful
And they're hateful
They don't respect us, so let's surprise them
We'll drop the big one and pulverize them

Now Asia's crowded
And Europe's too old
Africa's far too hot
And Canada's too cold
South America stole our name
Let's drop the big one
There'll be no one left to blame us

We'll save Australia
Don't wanna hurt no kangaroo
We'll build an All American amusement park there
They've got surfing, too!

Well, boom goes London
And boom Paree
More room for you
And more room for me

And every city the whole world round
Will just be another American town
Oh, how peaceful it'll be
We'll set everybody free
You'll have Japanese kimonos, baby
There'll be Italian shoes for me

They all hate us anyhow
So let's drop the big one now
Let's drop the big one now
