    I've been struck by the lack of intel that MUST exist, just not laid out for all to see. Fer zample, that one vid, black and white and grainy, is purportedly from a drone. Why do I have some suspicions that is has been heavily processed to conceal the real drone capabilities? And, in that process added some doubt for the media.

    Gotta say, if knew who slapped me (rather than a politically motivated yapping) I'd probably not hold my hand from retaliation, sharp and sudden. Then again, while letting the perp wonder when it was coming, I just might staff up for a one strike and done, put the whole problem to bed. And then, a new Marshall plan ----

    NB: At this stage in the exercise, the rag head's minions have not damaged the US other than by wearing out our ear drums. Those two tankers don't belong to us, so if we lift a hand, we become what the rag head's minions already blame us for.

    Remember that it's the Shiite religious leaders that want a war, not Trump. They are the ones waiting for the 13th Imam to establish the world wide Shiite Caliphate and that won't happen until a lot of blood is spilled. They had hoped that the Iran-Iraq War might do the trick, but alas not enough blood was spilled. Heaven help us if those crazy bastards ever get a nuke!

    When the time comes the peaceful ones in the states will obey their leaders and show there true colors.

    if you are following the international SHTF circuit - especially the Isreal war front >>>> you have an idea of how BIG a mistake it was to cancel the reprisal hit and what the show of lack of confidence will bring on now ...

    Iran will be attacking again - it'll be very shortly to cop onto this win against the US >>>> Isreal has been under direct attack from Iran since they were allowed to advance into Syria - almost constant attack thru Iran proxies >>>> Isreal does an immediate reprisal - many 5X more severe than last nite's US proposed hit - and - Iran doesn't stop or even hesitates ....

    Iran has been warned tooooo many times - Red Line drawn - and doing an Obammy >>>> BAD BAD MISTAKE - Trump is going to cost some American lives ....

    The last thing we need is "boots on the ground" in Iran. If they need hard punishing, open a few cans of aerial whooparse and bomb their military, weapons launchers, ships/ports and infrastructure back to the stone age.
    Render them toothless.
    Then crank up our factories to replace ordnance expended. We can use the jobs!

    I like a Plan to send SEALs in a manned Submersable, into the Iranian Navel Port where these Coastal Patrol Boats are based... Have the SEALs place Limpet Mines on all the vessels, that can be triggered from Drones out flying over in International Waters... and then wait for them to come out in a Show of Force, and all be sunk, in a matter of minutes... Headlines. “These dumb Ragheads, can only blow themselves up”....

    Then the PTB in Iran can view their "Navy" from glass bottom tour boats.

    I have to think that a low level supersonic flyby under the radar would cost no raghead lives but would amply demonstrate what might happen if they didn't slip their sabers back in the scabbards instead of rattling them. Yep, it would violate air space, but the lesson MIGHT be learned.
    At least there is a glimmer of light in the camel tent since they didn't target one of the manned patrol aircraft in the area.

    It was Ike that told a young JFK to beware of the military industrial complex, but then JFK didn't make it very far.

    I'm wondering if the purported Iranian EMP capability gave President Trump pause.

    Well, if they did kick off an emp. At least it's summer and a good time to test preps … unlike winter.

    JMHO, Irian is too scared to start a war with the US. Just like WW2 Japan and Germany both knew neither could win a protracted war against us. Our industrial base and natural resources gave us an edge that no one would match once we got into full swing of war production. It's a no win for them.

    After reading the wiki on Iran's weapons, their production and service status, I have no confidence in Iran's capability to wage a real war against us. As long as we don't make the mistake of trying to put troops on the ground there, we can pound their assets with little trouble.
    Put two carrier battle groups offshore, and we will own them. Our ships can swat down any missiles they launch.

    The unconventional threat of Iranian and American based Quds force operatives and the probable EMP threat are the real threats.

    Iran isn't going to take us head on. If it ever does come, they'll attack our allies with plausible deniability. Kind of hard to attack a country without proof. Never mind actual proof because that can and many times has been fabricated. If I were Iran, I'd secretly take out Saudi Arabia and it's oil production. Not for a period of time but permanently.

    How many of them are already in our country? How many plans are probably in place to do damage here should we strike at Iran? I promise it won't be the cakewalk Iraq was should we go "boots on the ground". Pay more attention to our own border, not this distraction.
