US admiral says forces prepared to confront Iran


hosted.ap.org

Vice Adm. Mark Fox, commander of the 5th Fleet, told reporters at the naval force's Bahrain headquarters that the Navy has "built a wide range of potential options to give the president" and is "ready today" to confront any hostile action by Tehran.

"We've developed very precise and lethal weapons that are very effective, and we're prepared," Fox said. "We're just ready for any contingency."

Saber rattling or a 'quiet' way of saying the US is going to war with Iran? Fox even emphasizes "lethal weapons" like they don't plan on taking any hostages. And this article from Reuters sounds more like propaganda than a warning about suicide boats. I don't want a war with Iran. If it happens, I picture something like WW3 and it is my belief that nuclear weapons of some fashion will be involved. The more "news" i hear related to any possible strike on Iran chills me...literally.

no they're not and in fact they have no clue what this could bring globally nor whether a full out ww3 would even be containable before total destruction is achieved.

100 bucks says they use the USS Enterprise in a false flag.

They are already buzzing the suicide this and suicide that nonsense.

This is all about Iran trading oil for gold just like Iraq was trading for euros. There is no nuclear threat. Period end of discussion.

War = profit. With war you need people to make more weapons. More jobs are created, more plants are built etc...it's just another way for those with money to make more, and those with power, to be that much closer to world domination. The thing is, those people in those positions are out to get "the bad guys," whomever they may be. But your head can only get so messed up before it starts thinking everyone is the "bad guy" including yourself.

An attack on Iran is really not an attack on Russia.

But it makes for great press to say it.

While it's not an attack on Russia or China, both are economic partners with Iran.

China is heavily invested in Iran's oil and gas resources.

At some point, the tension between our two countries will lead to all out physical war, in my assessment.

Peak (cheap) oil (production) is being realized as we speak, and the powerful industrialized nations will fight to attempt to keep their economies growing by securing those resources.

That's true but Russians do not want to accept this fact. Hence they might not do much to help Iran if it is attacked.

Making Iran be gigantic idiots is in the interest of Russian profits long term.

Are you freaking kidding me? I won't say it. I won't. I want to point and go, "holy freakin' god damn..." and then add some more onto it.

Can you do that?

I honestly do not believe that there will be a war with Iran any time soon.

Especially during an election year, the US just redeployed all troops from Iraq, and it is a big morale bonus for the current White House. Sending more troops to the middle East right now does not make political sense, in addition to not making much sense otherwise.

Unless Iran does something themselves that draws others into a war, there will be no war, no invasion and no military involvement. There will be no false flag. There will be no pre-emptive strikes.

Yep, I'm serious.

There's mountains just about everywhere in Iran, but we've got crazy tech to help us out.

All we'd have to do is ramp up production of drones to go after the forces hiding in the mountain ranges.

I haven't a clue how they're currently configured, but why the hell couldn't the MIC design one to locate and destroy targets in mountainous terrains?!

Then there's satellites tracking the enemy, laser guided missiles, etc, etc...

I don't even know that much about military tech, but know if we had the will to topple Iran, we could.

Taking Iran (Tehran) would be easy, securing our troops to set up a new stable government would be very difficult, but what else can be done?!

We have more reason to go, than to not.

1. Keep Iran trading oil in USD (send signal to other countries not to go off petrodolar)

2. Secure resources for contracts with the US (away from "the enemy")

If we don't keep the petrodolar going, and have enough oil to keep our economy going, we collapse. End of story. Didn't say this would be a walk in the park, or even that we'd succeed for sure, but have repeatedly said the US won't go out without a fight.
