I've never understood making announcements like this for all the world to see. In June, we are going to discuss an attack on Iran. That's what, 4ish
months away? That's plenty of time to get your reservists in shape, start recruiting new recruits, practicing drills with your full time soldiers,
manufacture ammunition, upgrade some tanks jets etc for a potential conflict on Iran's side of the fence. Why announce your potential plans, all they
are doing is securing Iranian moral in defending themselves by making statements like these.
It's been over a year now Israel has been making claims such as this, with a proxy threat from the US behind it. What do you really think making
statements like this does? Are they attempting to scare Iran into submission? If they don't have any other choice but to fight what do you think they
will do? Even a rat will try to fight/bite a person 10 times it's size when you back it into a corner. The only difference here is Iran is a little
bigger than a rat. Their guns fire real bullets, their bombs and missiles also explode. I honestly do not know who will win, but I know there will be
large amounts of casualties on all sides of this conflict if it erupts.
It just seems silly to tell your enemy you're gonna attack soon, if part of the success in all this will be Iran not knowing the attack is coming.
You have "sneak" in to destroy air defenses, if you don't have any air superiority your tanks would also have to sneak in with a saturation attack
or roll into a trap, or pesky minefields, you can't march troops into a trap either. Iran also has Ballistic missiles capable of getting by Israeli
Anti-missile defenses. There are so many factors here it's scary. To do this right, it has to be precise and swift. Announcing your plan to invade to
the world is just bad form.
Not to mention, at what point does the "preemptive strike" become a viable option for Iran? If Israel and the US keep boasting, when is Iran
justified in Launching their Ballistic missiles at Israel. Israel is a pretty small nation, Iran possesses enough Large modern missiles to carpet bomb
the ever living crap out of Israel at the push of a button. Before you get all Iron dome on my butt, remember the Gazan garbage 12kg warhead rockets
that made it past those defenses? Iran has Ballistic missiles with warheads in the order of thousands of kilos of explosives, cluster warheads,
chemical warheads, advanced guidance systems(gaza rockets were point and pray.) and they travel at super sonic speeds. We all loved to watch the
videos of the recent gaza conflict of a Gazan rocket hanging in the sky, being met with 6 or 7 Israeli Iron dome rockets to shoot it down.
What is Israel going to do when Iranian Rockets block out the sun? Even if they shoot some of them down, what about the 2000lb bomb that hits the
target it was intended to? Military targets, logistical targets, anti-air sites, anti-missile sites, bases. It's not going to bode well. Even with US
help, they are more likely to protect their vessels and bases first Israel has nukes, to what degree I'm not aware, but do any of you think they
won't use them when hell rains down on their city? A nuke being used anywhere today poses serious consequences with the larger nuclear powers in the
world. This is scary #, and I really don't think Israel has the restraint not to use them once this kicks off.
Iran is not Iraq, nor is it Libya. Iran knows about Israels intentions, and at the first sign of aggression I'm certain they are going to respond
