NEWS flash:

They don't havem "Billions Army"

china wants new ground for his people... "the promise land of china"


That's exactly what the US/West have been prepping and waiting for.
You do realize that in order for China to take more territory that it would have to invade and subjugate it's neighbors right?

"the promise land of china" Which is where exactly? Korea, Japan, Russia or India? OR all of them?

the plan have been made ... they will not let slip by an occasion like this... an invasion is coming to the american continent

You've been reading way too many comics and or conspiracies here at ATS. May I suggest stepping away from the computer, Taking a walk in the sunshine and get some fresh air.

i live in Canada .. if somebody invade the usa ... it will certainly come in the north to control the entire north america... (mexico will not be that surprise anyone ? )

You do realize that would turn Canada into a battle ground with millions of casualties right? I've plenty of Canadian friends and relatives, I have yet to see any real Canadians who would like that scenario.

to see the bigger pictures
its a chain of event starting the war in NK that will preceed the Iran strikes
its a strategy... to have less condemnations and attentions from the world view

Well as long as North Korea continues to threaten it's peaceful neighbors [ South Korea and Japan] with a nuclear missile attack they will continue to be on the watch list.

Besides, Canadian gun laws make it rather difficult to procur firearms, do they not?

You are like countless others on this website, wishing ill upon a nation of 300+ million who, for the most part, are good, caring people.

And while you are threatening me and those I love, learn ENGLISH and how to properly use it.

Then what better way to make a resurgence, if they are at a low power ebb, then to initiate conflict with Iran, to unite and rally the American and Israeli populace to the cause of waging war on Iran?

Perhaps a false flag operation, or the Zahedan bombings, which Iran say were backed by the US, to antagonise Iran into making the wrong move and giving a pretext for war.

The US/South Korean Naval exercises seem almost to be an attempt to dare the North Koreans to retaliate.

Unfortunatly, if North Korea does not respond, the higher and less wise echelons of their government or military may feel they have shown weakness in the face of these military exercises on their doorstep and feel compelled to respond.

Was it really necessary for Hillary Clinton to travel to the DMZ and be seen in an photo op barely a foot away from a North Korean soldier able to look through a window at her at this time of tensions?

How antagonistic can she get?

I'm sure in the years to come we will hear her tell thrilling stories of how she entered the DMZ under a hail of sniper fire from the North Koreans.

They are most probably fast speed boats, mostly set up for suicide bombing runs on USN vessels. We wargamed this very possibility and the game didn't turn out well for the USN. Hopefully we have learned from that exercise. Expect unconventional attacks from Iran. We just have to be prepared for them. They could be a threat if not taken seriously.

Should the Iranian Airforce try to leave their borders they would be swept from the skies. They would not be able to hit Israeli bases without missiles and, if memory serves me, Israel's have the equivalent of our Tomahawks that are already targeted for strategic locations in Iran. Iran has lousy pilots and second generation Russian fighters that are mostly used up. Even Russia is not stupid enough to give Iran first line jets. Hell all they really have are loads of bodies to throw at a battle line and Iraq held them to a stand still. Iraqis didn't stand up so well against the US. Iran is the paper tiger here just like North Korea,

Firstly, let me apologize for accosting your English. I should have realized that it was not your first language by your post. Please excuse my ignorance.

Secondly, I don't think, at least not at this time, that anyone is going to come to my house to round me up or attack/arrest my family or myself. The job I do for the government allows me some insight into if such things were going on, and so far, so good. That isn't to say it doesn't, or might not in the future, happen. That's just what I can discern is currently taking place.

And to your initial post about the Iranian "vessels"... these consist of speedboats and jet-skis, manned by a driver and a passenger wielding an RPG. They call this a 'bee-swarm".

The US Navy recognized this threat immediately after the USS Cole bombing, and began equipping it's vessels heading into the Persian Gulf with a CIWS that fires a 9mm projectile (a search for the Mark 44 weapon system, which I thought it was dubbed, instead yielded the replacement for the Mark 25 weapon system).

This 9mm CIWS was designed with the 'bee-swarm' in mind, as it was able to engage multiple small targets at range. I don't recall the exact threat envelope of the weapon system, it's been some years since I've seen it.

Either way, any Navy, other than the Russian one, that goes into blue-water battle against the US Navy, will be summarily routed and defeated.

Ha! I bet that Slayer made fun of your English because it was actually GOOD enough to pass as some native speakers here in America! Your English is actually pretty easily understood though by no means perfect. You do actually write better than many native speakers here. That is sad, but that is not a dig at you, on the contrary.

Now as far as your earlier post it did sound like, at least at first that you were lumping all Americans and the federal government together and hating on them. Later you did specify that you did not mean the people so as an American I agree with you now.

The federal government of the US only has their own corporatist, fascist, criminal interests in mind and no longer represent the majority of American people.

As for the actual subject lol, I think that they may be on to something using many small boats that are easily replaced to attack large expensive American ships.

Though the US Navy figured this out too after the USS Cole bombing. They have missle/gun systems on board and tracking systems that can engage hundreds of targets at one time so they had better have many boats on hand!

Remember Iran has 10,000 missiles locked and loaded on every single US war ship in the region, as well as every US base.

No way USrael can stop all those missiles or destroy every launch site in Iran before they have a chance to yell "FIRE!"..

Thennnnnn the Nukes come out to play.

They have also reissued Mini-guns and fabricated hard points for heavier firepower along the decks of most of the vessels sent to the ME. Larger Marine contingents aboard ships to use this weaponry also.!

And of those '10,000' they would be LUCKY to get one quarter to fire and have their guidance systems function correctly!

Uh Huh....... Please show me the proof, plus the ranges of these 10,000 missiles. There is a reason why the USN for the most part, operates hundreds of miles from their intended targets coastlines. You have to come out and play to attack them, in open water they will be picked off.

End result of any conflict with Iran results in Iran being left greatly destroyed. Iran does not end up a "winner" in any battle with the U.S.

nah its okay i know my english really s*** some times

those iranians vessels are very fast ... why ??
i have read somewhere they are bomb boat ... if one explode on the side of a carrier ... trust me it will make a huge hole in it
they will not attack US warships with speedy boat equiped with light weapons LOL ... that would be a massacre .. even 100 iranians speed both vs a carrier will have no chances... but if they swarm like the bee swarm you said
it will be hard to shoot them out ... 50% will i think succeed to go suicidebombing on a carrier with the result of massive damages

The US Navy recognized this threat immediately after the USS Cole bombing

they clearly didnt recognized the USS liberty one

Unless American people take back control of their corrupt and greedy warmongering government, it's only a question of time before your country will get retaliation, or decompose in it's own debt.

Let's that care and love trickle up to your government and world will be a better place.

Understand that is no threat, most population wants peace and just live their life, but your country is in the way in a LOT of places.

I myself regret deeply the position of my own government too, and we could face the same consequences if we do not go back to our pre-Afganistan Invasion policies.

Giving # to someone who's first language is not English because he his not as competent as native speakers without trying to learn their language is really self centered.

Apprenez donc le français Monsieur, et nous verrons qui parle mieux sa langue seconde.

Peace on you, and all of your frustrations.

Well! what about if those 10.000 Iranian vessels would be superfast underwater missiles/torpedo/unmanned stealth minisubs like vessels?

Underwater launching system?

They earlier got some of this new underwater stealth tech from Russia N.Korea as well.

After more thoughs on the main title
that iran have 100 ships for each warships....

how many US warships are now stationned near Iran sea borders..?
between 10 to 20

100 * 10 = 1000

so did they just say that they will launch a swarm of little speedy boats by thousands to confront all the US warships

i think yes ... only 100 smalls speedy iranian boats vs a fleet of US warships will not be enough
but a thousand of them will change this futur sea war
