Should you think Iran does not have the capability to strike western assets in Europe or even Israel is folly. They posses high grade soviet
weapons of the new age and have been trained to use them.
I'm not going to waste time getting into a pissing contest between Iran's capabilities and those areas you think Iran is a threat to. Because, The
reality is this, those potential targets you mentioned are not lame sitting ducks. They are more than capable of dealing with Iran on their own
individually, never mind if Iran attacks Israel and then Bombs Turkey like they have threatened to do.
Piss off not one but two regional powers that individually have more fire power than they do?
Now where is the logic in that?
Don't bother, There is none.
This is why they are of concern to many, because of that very flawed thinking and rhetoric
Could they attack America on our own soil with any success? Rofl, no......... Could they set off the biggest powder keg the world has seen
since the Cuban missile crisis as everyone draws there cards close to there chest and decides what hand to play? Well, you tell me.
Do you think Russia would risk the lives of tens of millions of it's own citizens over the likes of Iran or Syria? Russia didn't do a damn thing while
their empire collapsed around them. They didn't do a damn thing when Eastern Europe collapsed at their doorstep. The didn't do too well in
Afghanistan. They did a great job beating up little tiny Georgia though. I'll give them that.
Iran is dangerous, make no mistake
To themselves. If they keep screwing around with the Tigers tail.... they are going to get bit. BAD!
it may not be there striking military but they have distinguished friends and those friends don't like the idea of of the U.S. moving any
further East into Europe as they already have. It's a no brainier when you glance at a global map, checks and balances, all that.
Again, Are they willing to sacrifice millions of their own citizens over the likes of Iran and or Syria? Because this isn't a game. The Chess pieces
have been moved.
The US/West have already positioned themselves in the Gulf.

Yes, Iran has vast oil reserves that generate a huge majority of wealth, sold to mainly Russia on the uptake. They have relevant, conventional weapons
provided to them by other super powers, also mainly Russia in return for oil.
In conventional terms, Russia, Iran and Syria vs NATO is a joke, they would have 0 chance and most probably could not harm any assets in the far west.
The problem is, would the world economy collapse under such an action given the state it is currently in? My answer is yes, and from that, you have
