Iran says it will restart some of its nuclear program and the US can't do anything about it Russia will defend Iran .


I think most people would agree that sanctions are an act of war.
If someone parked their thugs outside my driveway and said I cannot trade or buy from my neighbor, most would agree self defense is warranted.

Building nukes is the only deterrant Iran has left otherwise they will end up like Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, all Israel enemies.

The others are obviously below deck .



Thanks for the pic. I think I get it now. They join all the carriers up and make one big superdeck. Either that or they have purloined Tassy.

Well, I'll say this for the MSM. You never know whether to laugh, cry, or destroy whatever device you read them on in a fit of rage over their stupidity.



Dude, what site is that? That's hilarious.

Is it really that hard for them to run stuff by a military expert before publishing?

Never trust politicians, general and staff officers, or intelligence given to you with a bow around it.

The sourcing for that is definitely loose, I agree with you there. On the other hand, it's not outside the realm of believability either. Time will tell.

No, it absolutely isn't. But at the same time, running around screaming the sky is falling isn't going to help much either.

Same as “Operation Eagle Claw” back in 1980 and the same going to happen again “perhaps even worse” as George Santayana once said “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”

For anyone interested in that kind of thing, these are the aircraft that deployed.

60-0058/LA
60-0062/LA
60-0032/LA
61-0015/LA

The LA denotes Barksdale AFB, in Louisiana. The aircraft were built in 1960 and 61.

Personally I feel it's just something to keep an eye on.

My main concern about this situation is Netanyahu. Iran said that if the sanctions don't get shielded in 60 days they'll restart enrichment. Bibi has been vocal about doing whatever is necessary to prevent that scenario. Trump has proven to play ball with Netanyahu most notably IMO the day before the election by needlessly calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization (which I'm not debating that reality more over the timing). Netanyahu even bragged he asked Trump to do it.

Which leads me to the next point. If Bibi isn't all bark, and the matter of dealing with Iran isn't a matter of if but when, the time would be while an American president has Bolton by his side. Is it possible they try and bait Iran before 2020 and risk a Dem taking the seat who may not be as cooperative?

It's a stretch and isn't necessarily a grave concern on my behalf, and those ideas are not mine, rather I've read things of the like in Haaretz as all of this has been transpiring recently.

iraq has had a central bank since 1947, sure after saddam was gone there were reforms and their authority was strengthened but we didn't create a central bank and libya again has had a central bank since 1956 and they still do, so please don't make up sensationalist nonsense. what would we even gain that we don't already have by doing such a thing?

Dang man, they must have some genuinely powerful catapults on the Lincoln! I'd love to see the returning landings on the carrier.
