Anyone who thinks Iraq or Afghanistan was a failure is fooled, have we all forgot that the U.S. geological survey team conveniently found nearly a trillion dollars worth of precious metals in Afghanistan mountains. The same metwls that china was holding the world to ransom for plus oil secured in Iraq plus weapons tested and troops given vital war experience. Death's aside and I'm not being disrespectful as there are tragic losses what had the U.S. govt and military complexes lost?

An ideal scenario would be this.



I love ATS. Sometimes it is better than the Comedy Channel with posts like yours. It is like fantasy dot com!

Why not tell the Iranians to use their superior technology? They can control every piece of US/NATO equipment throughout the world. What next the Iranian UFOs and tractor beams?


Hacking such an extremely sophisticated system, which until last week was considered impossible, means that the Iranians are able to enter all computer-based network systems in the US and Europe. Since the algorithm and logic behind other systems are much simpler, the Iranians may be able to control all radars, satellites, planes, ships, tanks, rockets, cruise missiles and so on of the US and NATO throughout the world. They may be able to even control American soldiers, who are driven to fight using satellite controlled infrared systems.

Currently they are controlling the ships rudders on the US/Coalition fleet in the Gulf and they are going round in circles.

So what if we found those metals they don't belong to us. Just as the oil in Iraq doesn't belong to us. What has the military complex lost? Men, money, equipment and other resources we lost far too much for the nothing we gained from it.

Your right the U.S has restored oil production for Iraq out of the goodness of its heart and free of charge and now the U.S has now found precious metals for the afghans to rebuild their country. On a more serious note they'll be taking a hefty slice of both to replace money spent as well as protecting their future but I do agree the price in humans is too high.

er no, your MOS dictates what you can operate and what you can play with, unless your observant, look at some thing else when you should be paying attention to your surroundings, then yes you could drive one. you might get an Article 15 for it.


Right. Convoy trucking down the road, driver in the vehicle is killed, everyone else in the hummer just sits there until another qualified vehicle driver is airlifted to them (in the middle of a firefight, no less), gets in the vehicle and drives it away.

Lemme guess, your military experience comes from COD, right?

I would agree. I fear Iran though will not be an easy war. Especially if it became a land war with all the tough mountain terrain.

an 26 - An Iranian F-14 military jet crashed off the Persian Gulf coast today, Reuters has cited Iran's Fars news agency as saying. Local authorities said the plane had been in the air for three minutes when it crashed near the town of Bushihr at 4:30 local time. The governor of the Southern province of Bushir later in the day announced that the wreckage of the jet has been found in the Gulf. There was no exact report on the fate of the two members of the crew. While the Governor of Bushihr, Jafar Pour-Kabgani says that the pilot and copilot were killed in the incident, Fars news agency claims the pilot could survive the crash.The F-14 was retired from the active U.S. Navy fleet in September 2006. The F-14 was only in service with the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force, having been exported to Iran in 1976 when the US had amicable diplomatic relations with the then government of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. Sources estimate the number of F-14A still in IrRAF service by 44.
