And you know that because...? can you provide prof of the statement please.


Iran has always said if attacked it will strike back. History proves this to be true because they haven't started a war in centuries.


Tell that to the Iraqis,Syrians, and Yemen, and others they are currently fighting rproxy wars.

For those wondering about Irans 'roaring missiles', remember they have a thousand miles of coastline along the gulf where the precious US Carrier fleets and oil shipping lanes are.

If they put just one missile per mile along that coast thats a thousand missiles... a thousand sea skimming, hypersonic missiles, some nuke, some not. You guess which...

You guess which mountain cave, big truck, train car and boat they're all hiding on. Good luck. By the by, they usually deploy their missiles in multiple launch platforms. Their modern ones easily on par with the best the west has to offer.

the US is not the only country patrolling those areas.
and i dont think Iran has any missiles which can outsmart anti missile defense systems on DDGs or LHDs or carriers.
and it would be hard to target any LCS class ships.

Iran is most likely talking about bordering US allies, which they consider enemies. this is a threat on you know who.

The U.S. and Iran are both taking significant actions. Please read the following articles for more details.


Iran has angrily dismissed Trump as inexperienced and dangerous. Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said military units would conduct missile exercises on Saturday to demonstrate their “complete preparedness to deal with threats [and] humiliating sanctions”.

...

What form will Trump’s anticipated anti-Iran drive take? It could involve more sweeping banking and financial sanctions, increased arms sales and overt military support for regional allies, a heightened US naval presence in the Gulf, or more special forces covert operations like that which went disastrously wrong in Yemen last week. Trump may also seek to make the Iran travel ban permanent.

I added a link above reflecting its not just anti shipping missiles along the gulf coast. Rocket torpedoes and mines. Iran is well stocked with both. Plus small attack boats...

What's the strongest sanction that can be applied? And would they make a difference...eventually? Does IRAN need us and much as we need them?

War needs to be declared. by war-time action or verbal declaration.
otherwise we'd be at war with every non-ally nation 'testing' their defense systems. conducting military readiness exercise is something we and every other capable nation do to show 'strength' .

how do you think any other country would have responded to threats by this admin? do you think Iran was going to say, Ok Trump. we'll stop testing our military equipment because you said so?

Weak nations don't start wars - powerful ones do. They justify it by blaming the weaker nations 'lack of democracy and violent actions' when the aggression has always been, and will continue to be, western aggression in the pursuit of resources. We could all die tomorrow in a neuclear fire on the whim of ONE MAN who wants to be proved right, he'd burn the world for it (this could be ANY leader, not just Trump).

Powerful countries have very advanced systems of mass indoctrination. The powerful countries leaders care only about one thing, image, they don't even care about their own people. This is the result of narcissism and a lack of love for their fellow man. A politician should be forced to do the job - not want to do it. The love of power takes a persons heart and convinces him he's greater than the sum of his parts.

I'm sick of people acting as though this country says this and that country says this. No 'country' says anything, there IS NO SUCH THING AS THE COLLECTIVE. How do people not realize this yet? We're so backwards, so stupid...

There is only the individual and his actions, his thoughts and dreams, evil or good. Individuals can claim to speak on your behalf but you'll always be left wanting. They'll NEVER know what's in your heart. Only one man did....... I wont get into that right now....

I'm starting to hate this bloody planet. Most of the people, even commenting here, will read this, be outraged and go right back to what they were doing which is nothing....... And the cycle continues. Powerlessness never felt so good eh.

The middle east has been a war zone for THOUSANDS of years before President Trump was even born-so it is kind of foolish to even try to blame him for causing what is happening now.

(Besides,the left set the precedence as to never ever blame the sitting president for ANY of their actions.Anything that President Trump does can ONLY be blamed on the traitorous criminal obama.)

I do have a question,though.

How does America bomb the middle east back into the stone age when the middle east (at least culture wise) has never even left the stone age?

It's one of those weird questions like - "Does vegetable matter?"

the era of bullying is over.
if we test our systems, and England just botched a missile test which headed towards Florida weeks ago, no other nations cried wolf.

i find this quote from the article especially funny and 'hypocritical'


"The days of turning a blind eye to Iran's hostile and belligerent actions toward the United States and the world community are over," White House national security adviser Michael Flynn said


the Yemen raid videos are no where to be found, and they posted videos from 2007 as 'alternative' operation evidence.
no one is inquiring about the civilian casualties or threatened to sanction the U.S. over it. how many civies vs uniformed were casualties?


the right is always talking about 'hypocrisy..' and so is the left.. try seeing it objectively for once.

Meh.....

We take a hardline stance against China. Iran takes a hardline stance against us. North Korea takes a hardline stance against everyone. It's just leaders playing to their base.

Call me when someone is dumb enough to turn words into action.

I need to be brought up-to-date. Why can't IRAN test-fire missiles if the USA and many other countries can test missiles? If you or I ran IRAN, we wouldn't want other countries telling us what to do.

Bring it hajis!

The US would level all of Iran using scalar weaponry.

After that we could colonize the place and make it a white country again.

The amount of forum users here that are obviously heavy drug users or heavily medicated in some way is becoming more and more blatant.

Iran stated if anyone attacks then they will attack back.

That is all they have said.

That seems fair enough to me.


They have said and done so much more than what you're suggesting. Please read the quote below.

Their actions mentioned in the following articles are no small matters either.

There is no story yet, but the source is legitimate.

Iran threatens to fire 'roaring missiles' at 'enemies' after Donald Trump Twitter spat

My guess is that Iran is taking this position because Russia will support them.

Russian-Iranian Cooperation to Bring Peace, Stability to Middle East – Iran's FM

It just may be that Trump caused this entire crisis himself. Consider the following.

Iran To Ditch The Dollar In Wake Of Trump's 'Muslim Ban'

I don't believe that the ballistic missile test suddenly happened out of the blue. What have we got?

1. Trump's immigration ban

2. The Iranian government has vowed to stop issuing visas to US citizens

3. The Iranian government stopped using the US dollar in its official statements

4. Iran's recent ballistic missile test

5. Iran says it will not bow to pressure after ballistic missile test

6. Iran threatens to fire 'roaring missiles' at 'enemies' after Donald Trump Twitter spat

This is a very serious escalation, and it's already beyond saber-ratting. The next few days should be interesting.

Iran was gearing up to fight the United States well before Trump won the election.

Iran: We Can Mobilize Nine Million Fighters Against U.S.

I'm wondering if it's not fate for the United States to end up in a war with Iran one way or another.

Hillary Clinton said it was definitely going to happen if she were POTUS (see the video below). Now it looks like it will happen either way. Things like this make me believe in fate.


www.youtube.com...


OH noes 9 million...a majority of them young people who if given a chance to surrender would do so as long as they get to access the internet and twitter uncensored. The young people there despise their leaders from what i have heard.

And Id liek to see them try to keep a army like that fed and watered if the refineries and desalinization plants are destroyed in the first wave of missile strikes. After that its just a matter of time till a surrender.

Umm you do realize that alot of people there could already be considered"white" And to be honest there arent any different races so you are nitpicking over a non existent thing. Just one race. You mean a country with no religion afterwards in control.
