Re: Iran 'to target Israel, US bases'
i have said for years, that if we attack Iran, our troops in Iraq will be decimated, along with a substantial amount of our naval assets

nothing good will come of this

Yeah, but hardly any of "the troops" are Jews, so who cares.

And then Iran would be left with a decrepit army, financially wrecked and most importantly - under sanctions.

The great regional power that Iran wants to be would devolve at Hizbollah-like level.

You may be more correct than you think...let's examine this theory:

Suppose the big oil cats decide to open up a couple of large fields that they have been sitting on for years.

Suppose oil goes back to $50 a barrel...Don't laugh, I really expect this to happen....

While motorists and truckers are celebrating less expensive fuel, the middle east oil exporters are squashed financially in the process.

By doing this, victory could be achieved without firing a shot, or dropping a single bomb...HOWEVER, this would be the death knell for the ailing U.S. peso, as those countries would hardly be in a position to buy our T-bills (debt).

Might sound outrageous until you give it some thought...

Supply lines could be cut....or worst case, bases could be targeted with nuclear warheads....which they supposedly do not have, but the possibility exists...

Re: Iran 'to target Israel, US bases'
i never said i disagreed with you, quite a few americans would like bush and his cabinet tried for war crimes, why do you think he bought property in Paraguay?

and yes, a lot of americans are no more that sheeple, a lot, not all

one reason for not going to war is the fear of losing too many "assets" , nothing wrong with that thinking, it is common sense, as in, stove is hot, do not touch

i am off to the beach, have fun


Yes, but that is exactly my point... That kind of thinking is not the answer, simply because you are not against wars, but against just this one, because you will lose the precious money.

This kind of mentality is just postponing the war, not eliminating it.


As you said it "if the stove is hot, don't touch it"... But what happens when it cools down?

Then you are happily marching on and killing another million or two of innocent people?

supply lines cut, with out naval support there will be no air power to guard the convoys

they are barely holding it together right now

 Quoting: malu


The cutting of supply lines would have to extend to cutting delivery of supplies by air.

It would also have to be a long lasting affair in order to have the intended effects.

Meaning it would require forces strong enough to withstand the enemy's reaction. I don't see Iran or its proxies able to do that.

Not to mention that the cutting of supply lines by itself would not lead to decimation of opposing forces. For that Iran would need another strong force to converge on the cut-off US bases at the same time.

And where did the naval support go, how come you eliminate so easily? Air power is already in Iraq. Even if naval support is eliminated, air power would still be around.

Not to mention that the briefly cut supplies would start coming from Turkey, which is a NATO member. Same with air power.

personally i view turkey as a reluctant nato member, they could swing either way, which ever suits them at the moment

forces rarely venture out of the green zone today, and today it is the best it is ever going to be, how many years have wee been there? and what do we really control? not much imho

something like 80% of the fuel used there is to transport fuel, not much of a supply line imho

i think things are pretty shaky there at best, i definitely respect your opinion on such matters though, but time will tell soon enough

Re: Iran 'to target Israel, US bases'
Iran ramping the pressure....

[link to news.bbc.co.uk]

Iran will target "the heart of Israel" and 32 US bases in the Gulf if they launch an attack on Iran..


Well duh...

This reminds me of ol' "Bhagdad Bob" with his "we have the American infidels tanks surrounded" routine..



Really goat shagger?

Just how many dead allied troops are there AFTER the war was declared over?
 Quoting: Wul


A lot, pig shagger - thanks to Iran. But I was talking about war, not occupation..
