An attack on Iran = martial law in the US? Where on earth do you people come from? That doesnt even make sense. Im starting to think people on here are as paranoid as the Iranian regime is!!

I cant wait til we bomb those suckers into submission...its going to be "oh so sweet"!!! ANyone who runs their mouth like Amanutjob is doing deserves everything he gets.

Martial law is more of a law which reduces some of the personal rights ordinarily granted to the citizens, curfews maybe.In this case probably an extended version of the patriot act. Normal police forces and FBI are sufficient i quess, otherwise there's still the National guard..and indeed no such thing will happen if us attacks iran..
The US has tomahawk and PAC-3, i am keen about the confrontation with the Sunburn, Shahab, and..S300
Greece had both s-300 and patriot, they prefered the former. Also they deployed s-300 during the olympics while they could choose the patriot as well

It sounds very much to me like a country who is extremely paranoid of not knowing if, when or where a strike on them will occur so they resort to this stupid bluster.

i've been saying that very same
thing in all of my iran related threads i've visited lol

and the latest one was the dick cheney thread with fox news and stuff

If America attacks Iran, Iran's capacity to retaliate will not be limited to its borders. Syria is a very staunch ally of Iran and will probably incinerate Israel at the drop of a hat if Iran is attacked. Furthermore, Iran can very much rely on Shi'ite Iraqi militias and Hezb'allah, both of which have severely embarrassed the allegedly more powerful forces of America and Israel.

This is a fight America can't win, which is why there isn't and will not be a war.

Iran will not stand a chance...In a day their command and control will be nothing but broken brick and twisted wire. Their air force will be blown up long before a pilot gets out of his jammies. No TV except DOD stuff, radio toast as well. No lights, water, or bridges. Government will be in bunkers and civies under their beds. Oil wells will be in the hands of SEALs and SF. Whatever navy Iran can muster will be fish homes.....That is just in the first 24 hours.

these people invented algerba.

Its not as if they are just going to sit there, WAITING for you to hit them you know?

Wake up people...

And its also not as if militiary men and women on the ground in Iraq ( US forces ) are going to be out of the loop.

If the US Admin decides to strike, troops on the ground, or officials in Iraq are goign to be alerted.
Im certain Iran has many assets in Iraq, possibly within US ranks.

So when your jets are tuning up on the run way, preparing to take off for the 'sortie' Iran will probably let loose everything, because they know they cant WAIT for you to attack.

Problem here is, even though your launching a 'pre-meditated' attack... they will be classed as TERRORISTS for hitting you first.

As I believe someone said in an earlier post- This wouldn't be a war to liberate a country, it'd be a war to destroy a military. The United States Military has strictures on it, and if they were allowed to actually wage war the way war was meant to be waged... dear God I honestly can't even imagine. The sheer destruction our military could bring is incomprehensible, and Iran knows this. Iran is scared and they're just trying to talk tough. I would love to see Iran obliterated, old school, like WWII. And as for all the muslims in this country... I'd gladly join a militia to defend America from them. Would be fun... after all I've heard Muslims have a notoriously bad shot.

With all due respect, what the hell are you talking about? You look at our 4,000 or so casualties compared to 55,000 estimated Iraqi insurgents killed, who do you think has won the fight? We didn't even wage total war, if the United States were to completely disregard the Geneva convention Bush could send a message to Iran saying:

All of your bases are belong to us!

OK...for those of you who think it's going to be SO EASY for America to grind Iran's military into the ground I ask what should be suprisingly obvious-why hasn't the attack occurred already?

I think the answer is easy-America CAN'T win. Maybe Iran's military could be destroyed, but Israel would most likely be sacrificed in the process. America could not secure a peace, and who the hell knows what would happen in Iraq. America would, in the end, be giving up a big chunk of the Middle East to Iran, if not the whole thing.

The way that some of you talk about a possible war with Iran is close to sickening. Some of you act like its a videogame. Its really pathetic and sad. I hope the US goes to war with Iran, because that stability that the Bush regime talks about...well, you can kiss that goodbye. I just cant wait to see if it takes 2 days to sell the American public on the war, or if they are strong enough to hold out for a week... a nation comprised of nothing else but crap.

This war will not be won for 2 reasons.
1)USA is a multi-cultural country, who knows how many terrorists are living
in America as we speak. This would be the perfect thing to set off a civil war
in the US. How will it happen? Extremist Sheiks will start telling people that USA is trying to annihilate the Islamic regime, in which might end up as Muslims hating USA to the point where some will go on rampages.
2)If Iran goes down, then it will take down as many innocent people as it can, such as Kurds in northern Iraq, and US troops in Iraq. Who knows, Iran could be supplying terrorists with bigger and better bombs telling them to "leash" until the timing is right, then all hell breaks loose.

This war will be a very big war, because we are underestimating our opponents. No one knows what Iran has up it's sleeves. Russia and China could be on the same side as them, Syria could be on their side and there could be terrorists in many different countries around the world waiting for their religious leaders to declare war on every non-Muslim.

Its obvious some people still live in the post 911, pre Iraq era.

Where everyone whom wasnt 'with-them' is a cave man, and worthy of an easy destruction.

You dont think Iran was watching Shock and Awe?
Maybe even monitoring frequencies or radio waves?

You dont think they know where the ships are in the gulf?
Or where the US army is situated in baghdad?

Iran arent going to just watch the cruise missiles and jets fly over the border and idly sit by while one by one there nations defense is obliterated.

Fear you say?

If I was scared of a nation..
I wouldnt continually defy their orders and send in men and materials to kill them 'covert-like'
I wouldnt keep spitting in their faces with accusations and comments.
I wouldnt continue to defy UN orders.

I dont think Iran will beat you militarily, but I sure as hell know the US wont blitz them in a 3 day campaign.

why the hell would Iran go alll this way.. then just let you do that?

Some people have some strange idea's on this, but do you remember just how much hot air that Iraq general was blowing when the Americans were invading the second time.

Most Armies of this world can not take on the US military in head on fight and hope to live to see another day, they must fight gorilla style insurgent style and bleed america with death by 1000 small cuts it's the only to beat american forces. Trying to meet them head on is a suicide mission, but then arabs seems to like those anyway.

Would Iran be tougher than Iraq for sure, but then again the US continues develop smarter weapon systems. Once the Iranians get a couple of MOAB's up there rear end they might not have so much bluster. Not to mention a cruise missle in the window of the Iranian leadership.

Iran has been ticking off the US for almost 30 years, now that they have said the Rev. Guard is tagged as terrorist thay can just say they are going in on the war on terror.

I am against this, as this will just continue to inflame the Arab world. Let them blow hot air all they want. If they ever do something stupid like with nukes. Well they won't have country left to rule, MAD does not apply in Iran
for the US.

yeah its gunna be great when we bomb iran and reduce there army to nothing....the army thats gaurding there enriched uranium..... with that said al queada any terrorist group will just swoop in and take the uranium and geuss where there gonna set it off.....also iran has alot of extremely well protected command centers there missiles are the most advanced in the middle east besides isreal were gonna lose planes and in the time that we enter there radar screen they could order a strike on isreal bases in the saudi penninsula or maybe even an attack against bases in iraq or afghanistan then when we do eliminate them were going to have a huge region full of loose weapons and terrorists if we attack iran we increase the armament of the terrorist organizations ten fold and if we attack iran i can almost garuntee there would be martial law prevent a terrorist attack it would propably just be a curfew and military presence inside of larger towns but we would technically be in a state of martial law who knows where it could go from there though

Again you are underestimating the opponent. I'm sorry but do you know what
Iran's plans are if US does attack? Neither do I, but you must hope for the worst. Iran is a pretty rich country, they are not in debt. So who knows what they could have, what they could have bought behind closed doors. For all we know they could have nukes, or better technology then we assume they have.

I understand head to head with USA is suicide, but what if they fought behind US troops? Dirty bombs, suicide bombers in Iraq, strategically placed bombs in Iraq, or even bombs in USA.
All I am saying is this, do not underestimate the opponents, because they could have so many tricks up their sleeve it would make Chris Angel look like a school yard kid.

Who is going to enforce marshal law in the U.S. . The U.S. does not have enough troops or police to even think about that. Maybe a couple of cities but the whole country, Its impossible.
Now if your thinking the terrorist attack a city with a nuke or dirty bomb and Bush declares Marshal law to round up Arabs and deport them or put them in detainment camps then he will have to rely on tons of U.S. Citizens to help out with that. If it looks like a suspicious call then he wouldn't get much help at all I'm sure.

The U.N and National guard would solve your shortage.And im more worried about Russia/China/Venezuela then i am martial law.This could open up a monster can of worms.

Why do you think we have not attacked Iran yet?I mean almost since the war began we have been saying they are killing our troops,and we have captured Iranian Revolutionary guard.

The goverment sees the potential threat there.I am willing to bet my left leg there is all sort of talks going on between all countries mentioned.We have to first ensure or be confident that we will not see any retaliation from above mentioned countries.

Its not about tricks. If it goes ahead...well, its gonna be bad. Bad for the region, bad for Israel, bad for the US. We are definitely living in a time of great change right now, but who knows how itll end up, so many different possible conclusions. Or has there always been just the one?

The gloves are off if you invade Iran,from young to old harldy anyone has anything good to say anout America in England these days.I always have to wade in and say i have a few american friends who are just like us,decent people!

Irag is a bloody mess,Afganistan is the same-we are nothing but bullies fighting an enemy from high above or in the relative safety of tanks or by the cover of night.We are killing them because there arabs and (soon!) persians,and all becuase that draft dodger bush is a disturbed disgrace of a man who has claimed to be doing gods work!

Soon as you attack,we should all turn our back on you and leave you to reap the rewards you will clearly get

as for the pathetic warmongers here,i have a great idea

I am not going to tell you to join and fight as your not men enough to stand by your hostile words,how about saying all that rubbish you do to a an anti war demonstration face to face-If you all email each other from every board online you must be able to get at least 100 americans like yourself who are brave online.You would be flat on your back like the worthless whores you realy are,its refreshing to know you deluded minority are few in numbers.Your all disgusting

Iran has the potential to hit back hard and as mentioned they know the targets,and the green zone would be hit hard.I dont even think they need to bomb it,all they have to do is get the word out and their brothers in Iraq would all hit it hard at once.

Most of the people that are posting here are completely delusional beyond comprehension. When we invaded Iraq, all Iraq could do was just sit there and take the "shock and awe" bombings. Iraq's military was so depleted due to sanctions that all they could do was wait until US ground troops invaded to defend their country.

Iran, on the other hand has a real army and is not going to just cover their eyes while the we come in and do another "shock and awe"campaign(which no way in hell we will do).

If you guys have been paying attention to the news for, let's say, the last year and a half you would understand that they talk about taking out their nuclear facilities. If they wanted to take out Iran's air force, for example, the US would have essential declared all out war with Iran which would be a MAJOR mistake. It's actually a major mistake to bomb them at all but crazy idiots in this administration are willing to roll the dice.

You smug people with your smug remakes are so ignorant that there really are no words to express how I feel.
