Incorrect, still there, an article from today:
But lets stay on topic, the US may have won the battle, but lost the war.

Right. A carrier group is in hostile waters and a swarm of speed boats sneak up on the group undetected and unmolested? Doesn't sound right. However, the sunburn cruise (and other cruise models) could hit the group from land based positions. Maybe the speed boats is a distraction from the real threat of the cruise.

The US navy could just retool the Wisconsin with phalyanx systems and load nukes in the cruise missile pods and nuke warheads for the guns and by itself retire IRAN

Iran has no nukes.US WMD myth ...Does iraq mobile biological labortaries ring a bell?
They probably have no nukes as of now and have no reliable method of delivery, BUT the longer iran buys time, the more the chances of them doing so increase. Iraq did have chemical weapons and it used them against the kurds and #es who opposed the sunnis.
The first gulf war was necessary, but the second was a hoax perpetrated by 9-11 as an excuse. They had absolutely no reason to attack iraq AGAIN, they should have stoped at the taliban. Bin Laden himself called iraq a socialist regime which is antithetical to any islamic republic. An islamic republic denotes religion as a state sanctioned code of law.

Althought to be fair, acouple of extra bags of salt into the straight would probably be enough.

If you use nukes on Iran or any Islam country.
100% certain one major city in the USA will be hit with a nuclear/dirty/chemical/biological weapon. Go on pick a big city in the US and say good bye to it. The death tool would be about 1,000,000. Again if you as an American are ready for that. Then by all means go nuke Iran.

don't know why everyone thinks we (the US) would ever use nukes as anything but a last ditch effort, and even then it's pretty doubtful, also, even if iran has nukes, i don't think they would be stupid enough to start a nuclear war with us. that's like trying to shoot a sniper with a .38 at 500 yards, while he's shooting at you.
