The 11,000 missile figure is largely unimportant. What is key is what will happen to Iran in the SECOND minute.
Iran is capable of firing 11,000 rockets

I guess that sums you up your mentality. Let's make fun of the situation, while innocent people will probably get killed and there's also the possibility that it could so easily escalate into a full blown world war. There's no justification for attacking Iran and yet people like you would only be too glad to see Iran and it's people turned to dust. I guess the only thing that America is exporting these days is hatred, ignorance, death and destruction. But what's new!!!!!! By the way, it works both ways. What goes around, comes around........

I now this has nothing to do with the missles stated in the topic, but it has to do with a possible theory of a war with Iran. I had this Signal Officer that I served with back in 2005 that had a theory about the war in Iraq and the possibility of a war with Iran. I'll try to describe it the best I can and hopefully I don't mess it up to much. Here it goes:
He stated that before the war in Iraq started, the US Army (I can't speak for the other services) only trained for woodland (I guess you could call it that) combat. We didn't have that much experience fighting in an urban enviornment (and let's face it, we didn't have the experience for a desert enviornment either). Also our only combat experienced veterans were from the Vietnam era and were all getting out or already left the service. So we pretty much now had an entire Army with no comat experience. He stated that the Iraq war was a "staging and training" ground for a future war with Iran. This would give our soldiers and the Army combat experience, urban warfare experience, and now desert warfare experience. And to add ontop of this, look at where Iraq is on the map. It just happens to be next to Iran. So now we have a majority of our military forces stagged in Iraq and Kuwait with bases already established for the support of a war on Iran.
Now this is just a theory that we talked about while we were deployed. He is actually the one that got me hooked on this website and pulled the cover off of my eyes that blinded me to the world.
Again this is just another theory to add to the Iraq war. I know its just speculation and I don't have any evidence to back it up, so don't rip this one apart. I just figured I'd throw it out there.
