Ok, Just was watching Fox News and they again mentioned the talk of tactical nukes, this got me to thinking this unbelievable situation.


What would happen if....

Sunday April 16th

12 Noon, ET.

Iran announces it has had a military nuclear program.
Iran announces there are multiple weapons in US cities.
Iran announces that if the US launches a pre-emptive strike against Iran, Iran will not only detonate all weapons in the US, but also launch nuclear missiles at Saudi Arabia (Crippling the Oil supply) and would also target Israel and our US Troops in Iraq.

12.05PM

Red Phones ring around the world, The US is basically being held hostage by it's unrelentless thirst for Oil and Money. It does not dare launch an attack on Iran as it would eliminate access to Iranian Oil, Jeopardise the relationship with Saudi Arabia and with Israel by putting them in harms way.

No attack is made on the US which precludes the US from attacking in direct retaliation.

The Republic of Iran is suddenly the largest super power in the region and probably would get support from Russia and China as it would supply oil to them solely.

The US would be crippled.

By the end of the day, a new world order has arisen. It is a Communist/Islamic world in complete dominance.


Could the US attack covertly?
Would the US attack in response?
What would be the outcome of this situation?

Come on guys and girls, no flaming. Lets have an honest debate.

Undoubteldy, political lobbying, whilst covert ops teams are being prepped. The U.S. just would not let itself be held hostage by any nation. As for the fact of Iran actaully getting the nukes into the U.S., that is a bit dicey. Although only 5% of shipping containers are inspected, there are a lot of other safeguards in ports around the world, as well as gieger counters stationed in just about ever majour city.

I don't think the U.S. would risk its assets in Arabia with just a brute force attack with nukes or whatever.

If it did actually happen, covert operations, for sure. But it's not going to happen.



"What's that sound? You heard that?"
"What on earth are you talking about?"
"You didn't hear that?"
"Didn't hear anythin - aaaaaargh!"
"Muhommad!? Oh crap, Muhommad?
"What the hell happened . . . **sound of breaking neck**

simple, the cities would be evacuated as quickly as possible, then the attack on iran would begin, if they detonate before hand, same result, they would ultimately signing their death warrant.

come on world, di you learn nothing from 9/11?

stir up a hornets nest and get stung, plain and simple.

Really, this scenario is a bit too far-fetched don't you think? I mean, the US isn't about to be bought to its knees by a country such as Iran, The United States would sooner invade or nuke Iran then have it cripple its economy and clout through threats on oil and the safety of isrealites. And I highly doubt Iran would have weapons ready in US cities to detonate on call. A pre-emptive nuclear strike is likely but is not imminent nor will it occur in the space of the next few days...

I know it is pretty far fetched, but so was the use of nuclear weapons against Iran just last year.

A lot changes.

I am just trying to play a little role playing game to find out what others think, If you really think about it, Could it really be that far fetched?

It just occured to me that with the thread on "Russian Nuke Traced to Texas" with the content that a nuclear attack would be this weekend, I started thinking about what would be the political, economical and social ramifications for that and a potential exchange.

What would Russia and China do, How far would they go to maintain their assets in the region.

Lets just play devils advocate here ok and assume for a split second that this actually happened.

It is good to think and digest information.

Huh? Did I miss the news? Or is this some in-house joke?

I meant to say, The thought of using Nuclear Weapons in combat was unthinkable just last year, now we are actively talking about it.

I just found it rather scary to hear the options of a tactical nuclear strike on Iran, I fully support a pre-emptive strike, but the ramifications of using a nuclear weapon in the middle east are huge.

Iran has no reason whatsoever to attack the USA. If anything, they would attack Israel. But since our media and gov't is controlled by zionists, we are being told that Iran must not acquire nukes. I say to hell with Israel, let them deal with Iran themselves just like they dealt with Iraq's nuclear program in June 1981.

Furthermore, Iran's nuclear facilities are burried underground. Nuking them would be a BIG mistake

Iran would never ever drop even 1 nuke on saudi arabia becuase it houses the holy city of mecca and even if they don't aim at mecca they would end up contaminating it with radiation dust, stopping muslims from being able to goto mecca for many decades. This will not go down to well with the shia in Iran or even Sunni muslims around the world. And if the americans dont kill the Iranians then the sunni muslims will.

Iran would never drop nukes on saudi becuase of the fear of contaminating mecca with radiation.

There is only one country Iran will dream of bombing or terrorising and it is Isreal...any muslim country or the US is out of the question...but really if Iran were to be nuked say next week we would see all sorts of hell break loose across the midde east, certainly, but definitely the world economy will NOT cripple and Iran will not come out he new world leader with Russia and China and what have you...remember the US has nukes to kill every single living person on this s**%hole 10 times over and anyone that misbehaves (Iran) or steps on their toe they will nuke to bits...I think the Iranians ought to research World History and look what happened to Hitler and The Germans and The Japanese with their Hiroshima and Nagasaki nearly wiped off tthe map...and if WW3 was to occur nobody would escape the destruction, we're talking H-bombs and nuclear missiles today not close combat and old warplanes and air raids they were using 60 years ago...hope to god Iran doesn't start an 'armageddon', really...

What if Iran was behaving like the USA, doing a "pre-emptive" strike against the U.S.A., heh if pre-emptive strike is good for the U.S.A., why not everybody else ?
