Classified War Game Simulates Iran Missile Strike on US Warship in Persian Gulf. USS Enterprise Conducts Mass Casualty Drill
WASHINGTON — A classified war simulation held this month to assess the repercussions of an Israeli attack on Iran forecasts that the strike would lead to a wider regional war, which could draw in the United States and leave hundreds of Americans dead, according to American officials.

The two-week war game, called Internal Look, played out a narrative in which the United States found it was pulled into the conflict after Iranian missiles struck a Navy warship in the Persian Gulf, killing about 200 Americans, according to officials with knowledge of the exercise. The United States then retaliated by carrying out its own strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities.

The initial Israeli attack was assessed to have set back the Iranian nuclear program by roughly a year, and the subsequent American strikes did not slow the Iranian nuclear program by more than an additional two years. However, other Pentagon planners have said that America’s arsenal of long-range bombers, refueling aircraft and precision missiles could do far more damage to the Iranian nuclear program — if President Obama were to decide on a full-scale retaliation.

Tactics and Strategy at the Strait of Hormuz

The larger part of Iran's military technology is outdated, with several pre-revolution legacy systems still in service. Iran has learnt through the years how to reverse engineer and replicate these technologies to the point where it now possesses very relevant numbers of weapons ready to use. These homegrown technologies are often publicly displayed in war games and are much celebrated by armed forces officials and politicians alike. Some of these weapons are effectively dangerous, like the midget submarines operating in shallow waters. Others, like the missile armed speedboats, are weapons whose particular effectiveness is largely unknown. These simpler technologies are menacing much more for their numbers than anything else. They probably give Iran the ability to sustain a military conflict around the Strait for some time.

And then there are the many state-of-the-art weapons acquired from Russia and China in recent years. Regarding these, the information available to the public is scant, sometimes even contradictory, as most arms deals have been shrouded in secrecy. The numbers and accuracy of these technologies are unknown in most cases, preventing a clear image of Iran's true military power. Is this uncertainty just part of an attempt by Iran to project an image of military power larger than what it actually has? Or is it part of the acquisition strategy to protect sensible deals that could raise objections from the West? In any case, the few weapons known for certain to be owned by Iran, like the Moskit missile, the S-300 air defence system, or the J-10 jet fighter are enough to discredit any idea of immediate superiority by NATO over Iran.


Scenario I – Direct engagement from Iran on commercial vessels at the Strait.

Scenario II – Direct engagement from Iran on military vessels in the Persian Gulf.

Scenario III – Military engagement by NATO on Iran

Scenario IV – No military action

Israeli Cabinet Reportedly 8 To 6 in Favor of Strike on Iran

In a column published on Thursday in the Israeli newspaper Ma'ariv, journalist Ben Caspit reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Miniser Ehud Barak have secured the support of the majority of Israel's security cabinet for an Israeli preemptive military attack against Iran without American approval. Of the 14 cabinet ministers, Caspit reports that 8 are in favor and 6 opposed to such an attack.

scuttling the 'Enterprise' seems like a
pretty obvious move at this point.

hope they remove the crew before it happens.

Internal Look war games take place twice a year and have long been one of Central Command’s most significant planning exercises. Over the years, they have been used to prepare for various wars in the Middle East, including the invasion of Iraq in 2002.

In the end, officials told the paper "the war game reinforced to military officials the unpredictable and uncontrollable nature of a strike by Israel, and a counterstrike by Iran."

Israel Convincing Itself That Iran Attack is the Right Move

Despite reports that the American military is not bullish about an attack on Iran, it seems some Israelis are more optimistic about their ability to shut down Iran without a full-blown war erupting. Jeffery Goldberg of Bloomberg News writes that based on what he's hearing from sources in Israel, the government is not only convinced that an attack will be necessary, but that the consequences won't be as bad as most people think.

Classified because its a plan to have a USS Liberty Redux?

Gotta destroy that carrier and sink it so we wont have to pay billions to decommission the reactors?

If Israel false flags the USA, we will end them.

The aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65) conducted a mass casualty drill March 17, as part of a continued commitment to mission readiness.

A mass casualty is any instance in which the level of casualties is greater than the medical department can support.

 Quoting: DoorBert


I don't know what to think at this point.

Since about 2 days ago, there have been MSM articles saying that the US and Israel agreed Iran has no nuclear weapons and intend to use the uranium for energy purposes, then an Israeli newspaper had a similar article, quoting a Mossad guy as saying there is no evidence of Iranian bomb threat.

So I thought there is some hope that Iran, and all those who would end up being involved whether they like it or not, would be spared.

Now it's back to war language again.

Did you happen to see any of those articles?

They will setup/ambush our armed forces overseas. Obama drools over this thought.

What? Obama spends his entire term destroying the USA at home and doesn't care about destroying our military?

BULLSHIT

Obama is with himself. He is promised he gets to control all the Islamic countries while the British bankers get the rest. NONE OF THEM can afford patriotic, brave, armed American soldiers around. THE NAVY / MARINES WILL BE FIRST AND WILL BE SETUP AND ATTACKED WITH MASS CASUALTIES..

Its common sense. Thats what happens when you leave treason in power. You've been warned.
