I was talking to a friend of mine, who I met while in the USAF, yesterday, who is now a Master Sergeant, and he seems to think that American will NOT
attempt to bomb Iranian nuclear facilities, much less start a war. He also said that Israel, by itself, would not be able to survive a war with Iran
without using a nuclear weapon, which then stirs up the entire world.
He told me that there were many reasons that the US would not want to actually strike Iran, one of them being that no naval warships would be able to
enter the strait of Hormuz, as the American navy needs room to maneuver, and attempting to clog up the strait with American warships, when it is
already full of Iranian warships, would be a bad idea.
Iran is also one of the most naturally well-fortified countries on earth. Past attempts at invasion through the treacherous mountain ranges
surrounding Iran's borders have proved fruitless at best, suicidal at worst. Also, the price of oil would SKYROCKET to unheard of amounts, and the
public outcry across the globe would be horrendous. And, to top it all off, Iran will look like the good guys. He said a lot more, but those were the
main things that I remember.
I tend to agree with this view. What's funny is that I just found an article that says some of the same things, and this was written by a former
intelligence analyst for the US army I believe...It is from the Armchair General War College.
