If you don't know the significance of the Mt Whitney on station, the Cole should dispel all doubt. Who was it that described the locals as "ants"?
It's now only a question of whose timetable. If Iran thinks it will help Obama
get elected, it will be sooner. I was on station when we hit Quadaffi in 80's,
the whole time Libya was selling oil to Italy, who refined it, and loaded it onto our ships. We were berthed right next to the Libya tanker. Nations leaders
do not control trade, even and especially during war conditions. Iraq took 100 hours, Iran is bigger, but weapons, systems, training, and a few other things very close to being impossible and un-imaginable are now available.
Exactly my point.
Things are different and more stuff is available now to inflict massive damage with.
This is why I think we are about to see that day when the S H T F!!!
I think it will be THIS YEAR.
I think it will be a limited strike on the nuke facilities, anti aircraft, radar, etc. anything else will be in response to what Iran does after the fact.
+1 on that. And Israel will be the ones doing the bombing. Israeli National Security you know. And like it's said in Slaughterhouse 5 "And so it goes"
What is Slaughterhouse 5?
A good book, by writer Kurt Vonnegut. Others of his are Cat's Cradle, Welcome to the Monkey House, God Bless you Dr. Kevorkian etc. Off the wall reading
Thanks, I will look for this one over at the half price book store.
We need to hit Iran Mike Tyson style, 1 round Knockout with Tactical Nukes, They wont use that area for Nuclear Programs for 100 years.
Slaughterhouse 5 is actually about his experiances in WWII,when he and some other POWs were caught up in the firebombing of Dresden.They hid in a slaughterhouse.Very good book. ---bil
