C-802 is not main weapon - dont forget these...

SS-N-22

SS-N-22 Sunburn is the NATO reporting name for two unrelated Soviet anti-ship missiles. Although the missiles were very different, distinguishing between them is difficult because their ship-mounted launching containers were identical. Confusion was exacerbated by the Soviet practice of mixing missile types within a class of ships. It was therefore not confirmed that the "SS-N-22" actually referenced two different missiles until after the fall of the Soviet Union.

en.wikipedia.org...

The Sunburn - Iran's Awesome Nuclear Anti-Ship Missile
www.rense.com...


Of all the missiles in Iran's armament, the most dangerous is the Russian-made SS-N-22 Sunburn. These missiles are, simply, the fastest anti-ship weapons on the planet. The Sunburn can reach Mach 3 at high altitude. Its maximum low-altitude speed is Mach 2.2, some three times faster than the American-made Harpoon. The Sunburn takes two short minutes to cover its full range. The missile's manufacturers state that one or two missiles could cripple a destroyer, and five missiles could sink a 20,000 ton ship. The Sunburn is also superior to the Exocet missile. Recall that it was two Exocets that ripped the USS Stark to shreds in 1987, killing 37 sailors. The Stark could not see them to stop them.

Lets assume that they have these. Are they ship mounted? Can they be fired from the sea floor? Vehicle mounted? On the shores? hmmm.. I wonder if we will be carpet bombing that shoreline? I have no doubt that iran will fight back... I just feel IMO they CAN NOT shut down that strait. They will try... even if they do fire one of those 22's... Our phlaynx will take those out NO PROBLEM!!!!! Believe me .. I hope they put up a better fight than Iraq/Afgh. I just dont think they can.

Just a thought

Is it possible, if the Fascists government ruling the Iranian people with an Iron fist, were taken out of the picture as a radical Islamic threat to the whole middle east. The funds and arms the
Iranian government supply's to Al-Qaeda, and other terrorist groups causing havoc all over the world, might just dry up.

Think about how safer the world would sleep at night, if with this action. A large portion of the more advanced terrorist camps sponsored as well as residing inside the country were destroyed.

I do not have rose colored glasses on, nor do I believe this action would not be filled with pit falls. However, maybe it is time for the Iranian people to have the right to inhale a little of freedoms sweet air...

Be Well

Coast of Hormuz in Iranian side is perfect for camouflage batteries.



Just rocky mountains, not any desert there. US really should not underestimate the challenge what they are thinking to take... Iran is no third world country.

There will be sunken US ships, downed aircrafts and helicopters - there will be blood in the fields, and 10 million people army against USraels limited forces.

If they EMP a few locations, it would cripple them pretty good. C&C centers, main power grids, communication, etc. It will be a 2 month bombing operation, just like Iraq. Then they can send in the butchers to cull out a few million 'dissidents'.

Agreed. I got to see the Straits of Hormuz up close and personal. It's a tight squeeze with an aircraft carrier
The battle for Oceania will be tougher than they think. We're not hunting rebels in caves here. They could also have the homefield advantage.

Great link...thanks...I hadn't found that topic yet.

Just goes to show that these propoganda machines are so effective that they can convince the general public to support and even encourage wars based on all sorts of excuses, lies, and other fallacies.

Saddens and angers me to no end.

Here's a blast from the past from one of the previous times we played this geopolitical chess match. I don't know if it's been posted.

I post it not so much for the commentary but more for a reminder of the activities going on then versus now. As I and many others keep saying, we've been here before. Lots of times in the past 10 years.

This also refers to the SCO I mentioned previously. And alludes to the alliances between Iran and Russia and China. This changes on the surface based on the economic and military sanctions recently imposed on Iran that China and Russia are seemingly cooperating with. However, should Iran be attacked, all bets would be off.

"Naval Blockade" or All Out War Against Iran?




Both Russia and China have bilateral military cooperation agreements with Iran. Russia supplies the Islamic Republic with military hardware and technical expertise in relation to Iran's air defense system and missile program. Since 2005, Iran has an observer member status in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). In turn, the SCO has ties to the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), an overlapping military cooperation agreement between Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan.


I'm also still looking for the quote where China said that they would interpret any disruption to the Straits of Hormuz as an all-out declaration of war on them.

Everyone here gets so lost in the word "propaganda"

lets be very clear.
Everyone around Israel wants them gone= Not propaganda
Israel has given back 90% of what they have been requested.
Rockets are fired at israel constantly (Dont be so stupid to argue the proportional response argument. It is a very stupid argument. If someone was firing rockets at New York city from Canada... the response would NOT be rockets back.. they would have an apache deep in their arse.)
Israel does some really crappy things... the use the holocaust card to the fullest.
Palastinians Kidnap and shoot at Israel constantly.... Israel's hands are tied...
I will use this analogy... If I am in a fist fight... i dont fight fair .. I fight to win. PERIOD! If your danglers were to become accessible.. I would bite them off to win! So stop with the proportional argument!!!
If they attack to stop the little peewee attacks... then the world freaks out..
If they sit back and let them fully arm themselves.. they are awaiting sure 100% guaranteed attacks.

If Israel lifts that blockade today... RIGHT NOW.. how long before the major attacks start happening? They will..

You will say it is because of all they have done to the palistinians...
Ok maybe true, But does that change anything? Israel is only looking out for their people.. Everyone wants them dead.. Maybe its their own fault... I think it is to a certain extent.. the sad thing is.. Israels only solution would be to wait for attacks then respond.. they can not do pre-emptive strikes against stone age radicals! the world simply freaks out.

But that changes NOTHING.. they are at a point they MUST keep their enemies at arms length.. Its the horrible situation we are all in now...

Another point.. Lets take away all of the covert/illegal things israel has done... lets say they gave Syria/lebannon/iran and Gaza Floral arrangments everyday ... Do you really think that would change the way the muslims feel about them? They hate them unconditionally.. Its a fact not propaganda!

Here are the facts.. If Israel was not the billy bad ass they are... They would have been exterminated years ago. If the US did not stick up for them... they would be extinct.

None of this has to do with their actions.. It has to do with them Being Jewish. And the fact that radical Muslims are wack jobs!! Not that radicals in any religion aren't. There is no god.. God is for weak minded people to deal with death, and to keep people afraid of more than death it's self!

No religion is more right than another! They are all dilusional!!!!

Think about the situation Israel is in....Maybe its their fault.... But they are wedged in deep!!!

I think more propaganda happens AGAINST israel than for...
I have seen on ATS:
The flotilla was a snatch and grab gone wrong.. really??? what a stretch!!!
Israeli soldiers fired at the deck for no reason.... really.. So during training soldiers are taught to fire first?? I would have to assume that those soldiers thought or assumed they were being video taped... I am sure their was a briefing about how to handle the situation.. I am also sure..firing first WAS NOT the SOP! If one soldier did.. he was wrong.. But is that all Israels fault?

Its hard around here to stomach all of this anti US and anti Israel crap.
I am an american and proud of my country. I am not proud of my leadership.. I was an Obama supporter... Now i am disapointed in my decision. I dont know where the world is going... If see a movement large enough to make a difference.. I will pick up my guns and fight for what I believe... But sadly I feel that most of my countrymen are a bunch of spineless brainless fools that are already too brainwashed to do anything.

So I have weighed my options. Sit idle and raise my children and enjoy my hockey games... tap randoms on Friday nights... And sit back and wait for the call to arms that is large enough to make a difference!!! I would not lose 1 day with my daughter ... to join a 50 man group that would be put down with reserves! But I would give up everything to save the country that my father/grandfather/great grandfather fought and died for!

Does anyone remember the 6 day war?

Israel is the one being underestimated here. It just so happens the closet Jew haters on here want it to look the other way around. The same goes for America too. While stretched thin, we haven't even begun to show our capability.

Iran is and has been up to no good for some time. Its funny how people post pro-Iran FAQ's sheets with little to no real facts or sources to back them up.

The thing that strikes me as really funny is the fact that many people are saying Iran doesn't have or isn't trying to get nukes! How the heck are we to know? Iran isn't even fully cooperative with IAEA inspectors and they hid one of their plants in a freaking mountain and told nobody about it until discovered. Theres a saying, "If it walks like a duck, Quacks like a duck and looks like a duck; odds are its a duck".

I firmly believe that Israel can take on ALL of the region single handedly with out nukes. US Spread thin????...shoot..Our troops are within 500 miles surrounding that country... + we could take out Iran with our early 90's tech. Wouldn't even be a fair fight.. Would be like Tyson VS Mayweather!
Yeah, mayweather is beast... but he is NO Tyson!!! All of you people that are beefing up Irans military... I want an e-card from each one of you when they are destroyed in less that a week!

If it's facists your after then may i sugest Irerail.

Looks like anyone that stands up to the bankers is a terrorist now and i'm ho so scared that i wear body armor when i'm shoping but when i try to ask questions about 9/11 so i can make myself safer, they won't answer.

Do you think those abord the Liberty in the 1960's were afradi or terrorists or where those that were killed in the David Hotel were scared of terrorists.

Facts are it's your zionist controlled goverment that you should be watching and not some guy riding a donkey, living in a cave.

Liebuster.... I just read through allot of your past posts... All I can say is wow..wow...wow!
Was your mother and father killed by a jewish/american politician?
Where in the world does all this hate and dilusion come from? Drug user?

You think that the soldiers fighting in S Ossieta were american.. And you said that the Russian whooped the USA's ass in S Ossetia? You also stated that USA only picks on little guys but wont dare mess with Russia.... again I ask ..Drug user?

Because the American military is no match for the russian military.....Laughable

I think my pop just came out my nose as I laughed...Does the group home know you are on the computers? You have developed this little imaginary world in your head haven't you? They have meds for that stuff.

Scares me that I walk the earth with people like you.. Ill bet you look in your rear view mirror to make sure TPTB aren't following you for your last post on ATS.

Iran's military poses almost no risk to US forces. I'm not sure what you are even rambling on about. No one is worried about Iran's military. It's Russia and China, which scare the US.
