To even debate U.S vs Iran in a military scenario is absurd.

The U.S was a giant back during WW2.

Then the cold war allowed them to build up a massive arsenal.

Russia collapsed, that led to alot of their weapons being sold, traded off, etc.

While the U.S has just kept on trucking, with over 50% of the worlds military budget.

America is a sleeping giant, and if it went to war with Iran, and had no restrictions, it could take down Tehran within days.

There wasn't enough meat to feed a baby shark.



The US have conducted many war games for a conflict with Iran in the straights - repeatedly, not once or twice - repeatedly - the US lost. The scenarios were ordered to be changed, removing the Iranians fast agile defensive capabilities, in order to try and produce a victory. (Not trying to cover up but to see how they could win). These were failing to the point where the US was basically fighting an invisible enemy.

The US military, has repeatedly warned that an attack on Iran involving anything other than remote aerial ordinance delivery would result in massive debilitating US losses.

This is not quacks and radicals, nor politicians, nor pseudo experts - this is the military themselves putting out theses warnings.

I would suggest taking their advice a bit more seriously rather than simply assuming you are invincible merely because you are American.


As I have tried to explain many other times Military Exercises are not war simulations. They are not meant to replicate a conflict the way it will occure The US military does indeed have people do that sort of thing with complex simulators. And military excercise is not meant to be won or lost. Its is an excercise. You get killed often. The OPFOR is given huge advantages so that you have to respond to the unexpected. When you are killed or your unit wiped out you are not donne with the exercise nor does the exercise end. Everyone comes back to life and the next phase begins. Iran has no chance in a convetional conflict. Thats not hyperbole that is fact. They know it and we know it. That is why they have developed other means to wage warfare. Attacking civilian tankers would be part of that as would launching missles at population centers in the Gulf States. Note this is about a conventional conflict. Follow on occupations are quite different especially when you try and so the on the cheap like the US has done in Iraq and Afganistan. What I mean by that is, they use far fewer forces then is suppose to be possible and some how get away with it.
