With the massive defense cuts the shrinking of the Marines and Army any ground war is suicide the latest budget that came out today is proof that it is not going to happen.

There is no what if thought we deal with facts on here.

Statistically, presidents are more likely to be reelected during war time.

See here

I think a big enough war would actually help Obama get reelected. It might be the psychological aspect of having the same person finish what they started.

If iran puts mines near the small entrance and sinks ships, how is anything going to go in or out without pulling up one or two sunken ships? That means all, ALL activities will be halted in that event. I think that is why iran built small subs to duck and cover, even those small boats they have will easily cross above any sunken ships. The passage there at the tip is so small and so shallow, it is a trap for anyone iran does not like. If such an event happens, i wonder how this will effect the nation of china and others who has oil deals with iran. If that happens then people would have to lob missles across a whole other country whom may or may not be willing to do so because of implications of who's side is on who's. and iran will attack that country for doing so. If this happens, it will be a missle strike first. The largest missle strike ever seen. Iran will exspect this and concentrate it's strength underwater to sink ships that defy them. The whole thing is crazy. A bad idea. It will cause a domino effect that i fear will lead to a long war. I hope they do more peace talks.


Oh common, the straight at its narrowest point is 35 miles. They would have to sink a lot of ships and If you think the U.S. Navy wont sink the entire Iranian navy after the first ship is sunk by them your not thinking correct. The days of warning Iran are over, I guess they didn't learn their lesson from Operation Praying Mantis.

Let me see U.S. Navy Virgina or Sea-wolf class sub verses 1950's Russian clunker sub. I would use one Sea-wolf class sub and take out the entire Iranian Navy and that is an absolute fact.



No it's narrow point is less than 5 miles and you have to steer to the deep areas to get thru with our ships. FACT.

I take it you hold a TS clearance? That's bad ass. How would you describe your job "officially"? Are you a developer of these systems?

That's extremely retarded to have a sniper involved in hearts and minds missions. That is not what they are trained to do, and that is painting him as a target. I'm sorry to hear that. I don't agree with a lot of decisions the command makes, especially with how inexperienced some of these 20 year old COs are. Give me a break. IMO the military should critically rethink the command structure.

ANYWAY, it's good to know the extent of our defense systems. I had no idea of space based detectors for things like that. I have no doubt in my mind the capability the US has to neutralize threats.


APO....I am "Civilian" but I work in the field on occasion. My buddies kid came home on leave last year. We all went to the local Fish and Game and ALL of us....concerned adults....I grew up with friends including myself who all hunted....we all became MOTHER HENS and set up targets and drilled this poor but good kid for days of his leave! LOL! We all loved him and he was as good hearted as a person can get.

I remember how we are all at the Fish...telling this SNIPER how to do his job better! LOL! Drinking Beers and even his Mom who shoots...was yelling....move your elbow out! LOL! We all broke into laughter! We wanted him to come home alive and be the best he could be.

As far as what I am...I cannot tell you specifics other than I am not Military....but I work with them and others that do jobs that need to be done...and every time...the job is different. I don't have to do this anymore as I am older but the few times I said no...I couldn't stand being in my own skin. I felt like I had abandoned people. So rather than feel miserable for 30 to 60 days...I just go...but it is much less seldom. Split Infinity

The Russian Times online edition has the article about U.S. Troops being Deployed to Israel.
rt.com...

" The Jerusalem Post quotes US Commander Lt.-Gen Frank Gorenc as saying the drill is not just an “exercise” but also a “deployment” that will involve “several thousand American soldiers” heading to Israel. Additionally, new command posts will be established by American forces in Israel and that country’s own IDF army will begin working from a base in Germany. "

" RT reported last week that the US is equipping Saudi Arabia with nearly $30 billion F-15 war planes, a deal that comes shortly after Washington worked out a contract with Dubai to give the UAE advanced “bunker buster” bombs that could decimate underground nuclear operations in neighboring Iran. "

There are a few more tantalizing quotes in the article.

Just one thing you must remember they (Iran) has very limited refining facilities. They have to have refined products shipped in, i.e. straits of Hormuz. Need I say more?
People on ATS should really look at the big picture.

LOOK INTO BAHRAIN....the US or anyone (except the GCC coalition) helped there.

You ATS'ers do not have a clue what is going on here in the ME or the Levant!!

I'm sure he was a great dude. I really admire him for getting through sniper school. That # is NOT a cake walk.

I'm interested in the steps you took to acquire this job. Did you have to go through a military branch? Did you approach them or did they approach you? What qualifications did you have to meet? You're welcome to U2U me the info you're able to give, if you'd like.

We have been at war for the past decade people have had enough of it and it would not help the guy who said he would stop it when he hasn't.

So, this begs the question, how do we alter the future that we can all feel is beginning to take place?

How do we stop this?

Well for example look at what happened with Bush after he started a war.

I'm not for Obama as president by any means, so don't get me wrong here. I sure as hell didn't vote for the guy. I chose not to vote at all, actually. It was a lose lose situation.

Obama has started a lot of wars during his tenure troops in Uganda,Somalia,Yemen,Libya and Pakistan for a guy who just cut the hell out of the defense budget Iran will not happen.

At least til after the election further proof of this is the loss of the drone when he had 3 options to go get it or destroy it and he chose to do nothing.

Past Us History between the Us and Iran came to actual bullets flying and shooting at each other and it never came to full war.

People keep making mountains out of sinkholes around here.

Dude, have you heard some of these Republicans lately? A good chunk of the population is already brainwashed into thinking we have to bomb them, or else it will be the end of America. I wouldn't be so sure that we won't go to war there in the near future, but I wouldn't bet my life on it.


You know Tupac that rhetoric either from the repubs or the dems mean nothing, brainwashing of the population does not launch thermonuclear weapons,

There will be no war here, sea, land or otherwise.
If there is I will see the blasts first.

Do not listen to the fear and war mongering.

Sure, it doesn't launch a war, but it butters them up and prepares them for one. If one does happen, they'll have the reasons programmed into their minds already.

Believe me, I steer clear of that baseless war propaganda, but that's not the case for many others.

God does not destroy places unless only evil remains there. He cannot kill the good in them.


It appears to me that your assumptions are greatly flawed.

There are many examples in the Old Testament where the good in Israel suffered along with the bad.

The Babylonian captivity is but one example.

God has promised to be with us and never forsake us even in the midst of suffering.

There's not a Scripture in the whole of the Bible that indicates God is committed to insuring that Christians will not suffer. Actually, there are several Scriptures to the opposite.

" . . . in the world you will have tribulation--be of good cheer, I have overcome the world . . . " --Christ.

CREATOR GOD HIMSELF declared that this era would be worse than the world has EVER known and worse than it would EVER know again.

It appears to me that the troops being deployed in Israel toward the war with Iran fit quite well into the basic outline of Biblical Prophecy reagrding such wars in the END TIMES.

Certainly in Israel and in the USA there will be people of good heart and even authentic Christians who will graduate from this life due to such conflicts.

God has it all well in hand and will be exceedingly just as well as exceedingly merciful regardless.

HOW HE manages all that is HIS TURF. And He does everything perfectly.

It's good to see you're informed. However, the unfortunate thing is the majority of people in this country with voting rights most likely have no idea about these wars because they are not covered by the MSM.

Most everything he does is "under the radar"

You can already see how Obama, along with the MSM, is making Iran out to be worse than what they are. This is making more people scream their war cries. If Obama is not reelected, I bet you it will be Mitt Romney to pick up right where Obama left off. The MSM is already shoving Romney in our faces. And wouldn't you know, Romney wants to wipe out Iran too. Weird

This assumes the reduction is not countered with the open deployment of advanced weapons, like lasers, exeoskeletal armor, assistive healing underarmor, etc etc etc etc.
