I hear ya and agree. America ultimately perfected the accuracy of the A bombs we could place. Even the sub launched icbm's put Soviet tech to shame. My response was originally against the ignorance that Merika had the biggest bomb as stated.

We couldn't keep up. Even their scientists were like whoa. We eventually said F it, lets out perform them. 3 A bombs on target was better than a 700megaton bomb with a similar kill radius. That 700megaton bomb accuracy was way less than our tri-fecta approach. They couldn't develope a rocket, at that time, that would put their bomb on target.

Here is the issue of the Tsar bomba. It was WAY TOO HEAVY to put on a ICBM. it was only Bomber delivery capable. Now those bombers are very very slow(on purpose mind you to be recallable) The russians dialed the explosion.. So it would not vaporize the Bomber delivering it. And the US could had made bigger ones but what was the point?

Best post on the whole thread.

The arrogance is astonishing... and if it wasn't for the good people of the US is happily grab some popcorn for the decimation of the nation altogether.
Thankfully there is a great bunch across the pond who deserve better than utter destruction...the only hope is that arrogant are culled internally to return America to the great country full of greater people that it can be.

Back to Iran's "incapabilities" that's a dangerous game to play.
Much like Iraq being shamed by a country enthralled in revolution, just like China controlling Asia despite Japan's attempts to take over a country who were busy with a 40 year civil war.

A busy country may not be as easy to take over despite their problems.
Iran are no longer battling themselves... American troops are busy on about 4 different continents.
I know that sounds contradictory but it's a completely different type of "busy" that they can hardly put on hold while they deal with an intrusion.

Also people are assuming Iran would be alone... I feel Japan surely wouldn't mind a chance at revenge, Russia have put the US firmly in their place a few times in the last couple of year, including Syria & Georgia namely.
The only thing stopping this happening, most probably is China saying "hold your horses, we want out money first...once we've been paid we'll discuss the next stage!" North Korea would have no choice but to side with Asia & Russia, and probably wouldn't be too discouraged about having a go anyways.

People seem to think that because America has the most nukes(maybe) that they would have any bearing on a present day conflict.
Given UN Sanctions and the like within the International community it's unlikely they would even be allowed or have the balls to use them knowing the repercussions will not be the same as 60yrs ago.

Overall it is probably just Iran saying "we are allowed out here with our navy as well" and nothing more.
Especially not a threat, when at the moment they are under the microscope so to speak. They're probably not urgently looking for conflict just yet!

Relax..the Atlantic is a VERY big body of water.

Saying being in the Atlantic is near to USA is like saying the Sol system is near Alpha Centauri.
