I'm just tired of hearing the bleating. If we have to '' isolate '' so be it. Isolation is a good thing, sometimes a break away from it all is healthy. Why do we always have to be the referee. Just give me the candidate that doesn't yap yap and actually does something before we go further down whatever type of road we're heading now leads.

Thats all just a pipe dream though. For some reason that world will always be about talk.

I don't know who I'm voting for, at this point I'm leaning mostly towards R.Paul. You can listen to all their perspectives and if you think in that perspective, you'll agree. So far Paul has made more points I agree with.
Party has no meaning for me cause, I have no party, never have.

So Iran doesn't even have an Air Force, huh? More sheer idiocy from Dr. Paul, who seems to feel he can just make up s(tuff) to fit his agenda.What does he think their 47 F-14 Tomcats, 65 F-4D and Es, 60 F5ETiger IIs, 92 Migs and Sukhois, 20 C-130 E and Hs, 142 Transports (including 19 intercontinental range transports,) and 450 missiles are, a freaking Boy Scout Troop going for aviation merit badges? The Air Force that Paul denies exists even has its own web page. www.iiaf.net...

Perhaps Ron Paul is thinking ahead of the curve here.

It would be better to get rid of THEM BEFORE THAT HAPPENS!!!

THEY WILL DO IT, YES IT WOULD *GIVE US AN EXCUSE*


WE NEED NO MORE EXCUSES.

IRan wants ALL THE JEWS DEAD!!!!

ONLY THING WE NEED TO KNOW!! DEEERP

After a little online research It appears that Ron Paul is correct. While Iran used to have an air force, most of it has been destroyed, is beyond repair or they lack the necessary replacement parts. Fun website you linked. It looks like it was put up by a middle school student.

If someone wants to nuke us and they are determined enough, they would try no matter if it is Iran, or anyone else. If you get someone that is determined, has any type of way to get it here, and just totally consumed by hate, you have a scenario.

I don't think going on nuclear witchhunts will make us any more safer.

IRANS Air Force = 52,000 active personnel and 530 aircraft
90 fighter jets, 44 F-14 tomcats of which only 25 are operational.
And a bunch of trainers, and other "crap" that's pretty much useless in combat roles, unless haphazardly retrofitted in a hurry, and then...MEH..

UNITED STATES AIRFORCE = 329,638 active personnel
68,872 reserve personnel
94,597 air guard personnel
5,573 aircraft, of which 2,132 are fighters
450 ICBMs
32 satellites
Motto "No One Comes Close"

All i can say is that someone is going to get their ass handed to them six ways to Sunday and then some.
Ron Paul is right on this, they have no AF.

Why would Iran seek to destroy us... Please.... Don't buy into all the political crap.... Iran is not going to come over here and attack us.... They just wont. Why? Because the Iranian people aren't stupid!

Look, the greatest threat to our country has been the soviet union. They had every chance to destroy us with nukes.... They didn't.....


Look, I'm not going to live in fear like the governments of the world want me to. I am going to be happy, live my life. Go to work. Kiss my girlfriend... You know?


The chances of me being killed by a nuke, terrorist or any act of war,are much worse than my chances of a complete stranger sneaking up on me and pulling my pants down in public.....

In fact...... That has actually happened, so I no longer have to live in fear of that either.




Now, if you want to worry about other countries and live in fear of being killed in war.... Maybe you are in the mood to develop a mental disorder?

Hey, then join those guys telling you to live in fear..... They will be happy to send you to war, and give you something to really be afraid of....

Think about it... Free room and board....well... Not free.. You have to let them break you down, brain wash you and then teach you how to smile as you kill and then be proud of it.... Well.....hmm.... No wonder so many come home with PTSD...


In other words.....There are far more things to be afraid of right here in the US.....


It's time we get over this illogical fear of different cultures and countries ( By we, I mean the US government.... and a few of our citizens as well....)

Sure I agree that we shouldn't interfere with Iran's development of the bomb. Only two possible outcomes, 1) they are the nice guys that they say and will not attack us or any of our allies and all is well, or, 2) they do attack us or our allies and we give them a little more nuclear and then all is well too.

Either Iran gets a nuclear bomb, or Israel gets rid of theres.


Either the middle east becomes 100% nuclear bomb free......or everyone can have them.

That's all there is to it. Mutual Assured Destruction.

Either mankind grows up, or we start slaughtering each other and become extinct. I seriously do NOT think the human species is intelligent.

We still have enough Chemical Weapons around the world to kill everything. Those should have been destroyed years ago....dumping them in the sea....yeah that was a GREAT frekin idea Baby Boomers. You were more barbaric to this planet than any other Generation...or species.

I agree with the something's got to give mentality for humanity in general.
If we want to grow up we've gotta pass through the fire, that's all there is to it, sad but probably true not to mention unavoidable.

No, 280 jet fighters/attack aircraft, 3 maritime/spotting aircraft,, 6+ recon/aew, an intercontinental tanker/refueler, 142 transports, 219 trainers, 32 helicopters and at least 450 missiles do not constitute a laughing matter. Unless, of course, like Dr. Paul, one desires to cover his eyes, stick his fingers in his eyes, and go "Nyah!Nyah! I can't hear you. Iran has no Air Force." What in god's name would lead him to say such a thing? Maybe his refusal to try to "pray it away" like Perry or Bachman?

This is nothing but scare tactics and a blatant attempt to get us into yet another war. Even if Iran did obtain 'the bomb' what the hell do you expect them to do with it?! They are surrounded by nations with the very same weapon. Dont even give me this bullcrap that Israel cant defend itself. Israel is very capable of taking care of itself.

Iran wants to sit at the big boy table? Who cares?! We are not the world police!

Are you ok?
Take another look at the US AF please and then come back and make childish remarks. On earth where power is concerned the US AF is the closest thing to God there is accept God himself.

Im sorry if you think they will wipe us out with their broke back air force.
Did you not see the stats i showed above?

After reading your remarks how can I possibly take anything you say seriously?
Sad day on ATS again.

I know!

Why don't we just go to war with anyone with the bomb or nuclear ambitions?
After all, we are the only country that deserves it, because **WE** would never use it!
Especially on civilians or whole cities!

Try this website: www.globalsecurity.org... Perhaps the old American stuff we sold/gave the Shah is obsolete, but they have full logistical support for the brand new Sukes and Migs they are getting from Russia. And they reverse engineered the Tiger II and are producing their version at home. And an obsolete aircraft can kill you just as dead as a modern one. Ask the jet Mig pilot shot down in Vietnam by the Korean war vintage Skyraider. Or any of the myriad victims of the Flying Witches (women pilots from Russia in WWII flying ancient Polykarpov PO-2 biplanes.) Or the German dead at the battle of Kursk, killed by the early 30s designed Srurmovik IL-2.
I have fought an air war. It is nearly suicidal to underestimate an enemy because your own stuff is newer. All of our F-4s, F-105s, and B-52s were brand spanking new compared to the N Vietnamese Mig 15s, and 17s and SA-2 (V-75) missiles, which were of a 1950s design.

People said the same thing about the Iraqi military and look at what happened there?
The only thing that killed American tanks in that battle (Gulf War 1) was other American tanks, a little glitch we have since fixed. That was the Army by the way, my territory, advanced as hell but backwoods compared to the tech of the Air Force.

Domination has been the Us Air forces Game for many decades now, hence the motto "no one comes close"

His comment that Iran doesn't have an airforce was correct. Unless having some airplanes and helecopters makes an airforce. The point that should be taken from that comment is: They have no air-superiority that can hold a torch to what we have.
Remember the highly trained Iraqi forces that were going to fight us to the death?
Remember how long it took us to march to Bagdad?

The Iranians are not necessarily our friends, but for us to allow fearmongering to dictate our policy is disgraceful and is cause for concern. The blabber-mouths are just trying to create more crisis.
Crisis = Policy
which = the ability to implement more control over us, here at home.

Ron Paul is right, which is why he sounds so out there. No one else has the guts to say anything close to the truth, let alone say something as absurd as leaving Iran alone. Crazy talk, right?
