I have to agree with you, it won't be long.
Fortunately, I am not working now until the New Year so I can scour the News and keep Fox on the box all day long.
Come on Israel, smack em one! God is on our side!!

Good for the Iranians! I hope they bring it. And I hope we as a country i.e. the US and other countries i.e. the UK get their ass walloped. It's the only thing that will make us as a people and a society realize we can't continue down this path of constant war. Leave the middle east alone and focus on our damn country. I just watched as my tyrannical corrupt government stole from me in the form of taxes almost $900 out of my #ing paycheck! So # my government.

to add another odd note today Iran announced they started emergency testing ways to make gasoline... sounds like their digging in
China's Sinopec (0386.HK) has signed a tentative deal to provide financing of $6.5 billion for oil refinery projects in Iran, two Iranian news agencies reported on Wednesday.
If such an agreement goes ahead, it would provide Iran, the world's fifth-largest crude exporter, with much needed capital to help develop its all-important energy sector, which is under U.S. sanctions.

You may plan whatever you like.You may believe you will foil the defences.YOU MAY WELL BE WRONG.
The real world has a way of not happening like it does in the comp sims.
Each submarine is armed with 6 x 21-inch (533 mm) torpedo tubes, which are also capable of firing Sub-Harpoon missiles, and 4 x 25.5-inch (648 mm) torpedo tubes. The submarines are also able to deploy mines.
It is believed that the four larger 25.5-inch (648 mm) torpedo tubes are capable of launching nuclear-armed Popeye Turbo cruise missiles (a variant of the Popeye/AGM-142 Have Nap standoff missile) with a range of up to 1,500 kilometres (930 mi), which would offer Israel a second strike capability. The larger torpedo tubes can also launch underwater swimmer delivery vehicles.
