Isn't that what they said about the Titanic... that it was unsinkable.

I don't know about that statement, both sides have pretty big allies. These are the possibilities:
US-Canada, Australia, Israel, Germany, UK, Japan, Turkey, and NATO.
Countries signed with the NATO treaty: Belgium, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Greece Spain, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria, and a few more. I am not saying all these countries will go to war, but NATO was designed for "the organization established a system of collective defence whereby its member states agree to mutual defence in response to an attack by any external party."

Iran-Lebanon, Syria, China, Russia, India or Pakistan, Afghanistan, Venezuela and North Korea.

So I think it will be an equal fight, and the rights to write history is for the winner to decide. Maybe that is why US is provoking Iran. So they can get NATO on their side.

I love threads like this. They bring the irrational, frothing at the mouth, America haters out of the wood work. It's especially funny to hear people complain about how "violent" the U.S. is when it's the Europeans who started BOTH world wars. Anyone who thinks the U.S. is committing genocide in Iraq or Afghanistan, needs to look up that word. If we just wanted to kill civilians there would be B-52 raids day and night over population centers. THAT would be genocide. The few civilians that are dying over there are usually killed by IED's or suicide bombers, not U.S. forces. You people need to get a grip on reality.

Another thing, please stop touting Russian military equipment as being up to par with U.S. equipment. It's not. Not even close. Even the newest Russian crap rolling off the assembly doesn't stand up to Western, let alone U.S., standards. Anyone that thinks a few Russian SAMS are going to even slow down the U.S. Air Force, is smoking something. The U.S. is the best in the world at supressing enemy air defenses. All those Russian SAMS mean is there will be more dead Iranian radar operators. Bank on it.

With ALL these U.S. military presence in and around Persian Gulf, if I would be Iran, I would also want to buy every possible anti-aircraft weapon there is. With things going "smoothly" in Iraq these days, one can only imagine the fear, which is present in everyday Iran, when certain world presidents call-out for massive air-strike with possible nuclear weapons.

2)So no one else can take the North Pole, I mean what are Canadians going to
do if USA falls? All we will say is "Meh North Pole was not that great anyway".

Russia, China, Iran, Syria, Venezuela, and Cuba vs America, Canada, UK, Israel, and maybe UN? This will be a catastrophic war, because of all the nukes each country has. Maybe Bush knew all along that Russia, and China were on Iran's side and that is why he has that many troops in Iraq.
This war will destroy many lives, and once it ends guess what! A few years down the road we will probably be ignorant and have another war until we wipe out 3/4ths of the planet. Then maybe we can learn a good lesson about fighting with each other rather then trying to advance in technology.

Maybe a war like this is just what this world needs to end the greed and help us not take life for granted anymore.


You forgot that Japan, Taiwan and South Korean would be on the US side and I think France would be some other Europeans would be also.
Also, this would be WWIII and there would be no other war after that, There would be nothing left except scattered groups of hungry, wounded nomads. Also, Syria, Cuba and Venezuela would be renedered useless on the first day.

The sad part is, those are all targets for Iranian missiles. I don't pretend to know why you would put such a big part of your military on your enemies doorstep when you know they have missiles capable of hitting them. Unless they're cannon fodder to be used as a reason for a full scale invasion of the Middle East? The Energy War rages on!

Who is Vice Chairman of Russia's Parliament Duma, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, making the fuss?

Found this: Vice Chairman of Russia's Parliament Duma, Vladimir Zhirinovsky:
www.acs.brockport.edu...


Uha: "Vladimir Zhirinovksy is currently involved in Russian politics. He is a leader in Russia and seeking more power. Vladimir is a very charismatic leader and his views rival Hitler's and Stalin's. One of his books is called "My Struggle" and some have compared it to "Mein Kampf" (which means "My Struggle" in German) and called it more of a manifesto than an autobiography."
---
"Zhirinovsky praised Adolf Hitler's ideology of National-Socialism in an Izvestia article. One of his books, "The Last Thrust to The South", advocates military aggression against Russia's Southern neighbors as a way of achieving political stability in the region. Vladimir Zhirinovsky made headlines by threatening to take Alaska back from the United States, nuke Japan, and flood Germany with radioactive waste."

Zhirinovksy Quotes:
www.brainyquote.com...

"Americans try to talk about positive family values, although the actual state of things is disastrous."
----
" Europe has united, China is growing speedily and Russia possesses immense power in terms of fuel resources. The US administration cannot do anything about it."
---
"We must force the government to stop the bird migration. We must shoot all birds, field all our men and troops... and force migratory birds to stay where they are." ...

Well I guess enough said about this guy, or is it? Hope Political Power in Russia never allows for this one to rise higher than he has to date.

If Iran had 2000 of them it would, Russia is just waiting for the U.S. to do something stupid like attack/invade Iran (for oil like Iraq) so Russia can attack, if you can't see WW3 coming your the one thats crasy!

I think you need to go reread Russia's weapons, I assure you U.S. will not last 2 weeks against Russia, Iraq's SAMs were old delapitated 60's era SAM's, if Iran had 2000 S-400 the U.S. would'nt last unless they launch 2000 drones, in 1999 NATO was forced to fly no less than 15K feet above ground over Serbia because of the well kept 60's era SAMs, and the Patriot is/was a joke Russia has the BEST SAMs in the world, and I challenge you to proove me wrong, many have blammed Russia for boasting, but few have did the research that actually prooves Russia's boasting was/is correct, here's some info you should have know, after doing 7 years of research I'm convinced the U.S. uses "media trickery" to make it self seem more advanced/powerful militaraly than Russia.
Here's some interesting facts, after boasting about the "Patriot's" performance in DesartStorm, here's the facts: (Now just imagine if Iraq had the S-300V back then 1991, U.S. would have had 85% of thier planes shot down)

Yeah...I sure am enjoying all the oil that we're getting out of Iraq. I'm bathing in it!

Wait a minute......what oil? Where's my oil?! That's right, there isn't any.

You are one of the lunatics I'm talking about. Russia has a third rate military. Posting links to weapons systems doesn't prove your point. I'm not denying that those weapon systems exist, I'm saying they're woefully inadequate to blunt any U.S. attack. The proof is the fact that everywhere the U.S. goes, they have air supremacy in the first couple days of operations. That's my "proof".....that's real, not a posted link to some unproven weapon system.

And yes, everyone knows the Patriot system had problems......in 1992. How does this support your argument that Iran could stop a U.S. attack?

I said if Iran get 2000 S-400's the U.S. will not get in Iran in anyway, thats what I said.
I was posting those links about the Patriot because EVRYONE was told/ and STILL thinks most of Iraq's Scuds were brought down by them, which was not the case, and if Iraq had better SAM's like 2000 S-300V/ S-300 PMU-1's U.S. would not have had air suprenacy, if you bothered to look at the details of why Iraq and any nation that goes against U.S. losses the air wars it's because of these reasons.
BTW your the LUNATIC, sitting here not even realising your Constitution is/has been pushed aside to start wars to steal oil and give it to isreal, in descise as "Rebuilding Iraq" IAEA has not said Iran is trying to build a nuke, if Iranian fighters were in Iraq the U.S. could have prooven it by showing T.V. images of Iranian fighters comeing across Iraq, they speak "Pharsie" not Arabic so they can be identified easier, yet the U.S. doesn't show this, why, because they are not going across into Iraq, thats just what the U.S. Gov wants people to believe so the U.S. doesn't look like the bad guy trying to start a war with Iran, SO YES YOUR the LUNATIC, for believing this CRAP, the simple fact I had to explain this simple thing to you shows YOUR a danger to world peace by supporting these "LUNATICS" in office.

I just want to expess my gratitude to you for your Sun Tzu quotes. They really come to life when applied to current geo-political situations. I guess warfare has never really changed, just the implements. I have always wanted to read the Art of War, I only wish the numbskulls in the Pentagon had!

I could come up with a lot more examples of countries with relatively blood free hands.

Truth is, the US has had an unusually violent history in the modern era, being involved in more wars than any other nation on Earth since WWII.



Switzerland has all that nazi gold. So its more a matter of semantics with them. We won't shoot you but we'll launder your money if someone else shoots you and takes it.

Um as for being involved in wars, lets not forget russia. Funded and supplied north vietnam for example. Russia's fingerprints are all around the globe through either fermenting violence or directly initiating it.

Aside from making war we have also been the largest donors of food medical supplies and money.

What a small list that you have there...

Human history is long and bloody with no innocents. Some just let others get bloody for them.

If i was a president of USSR and knew that this was to happen, i would have bombed US long ago..
treat others the way you want to be treated yourself


Let russia do their worst. They will get romped.......again.
