Must agree, King George is planning sumthing nasty for 07.
A 'War Winning' policy in Iraq, Onest, or a nasty spoiling attack on Iran who is still not forgiven for 79's hostage taking.
Ya Yank never forgets or forgives, till ya under his Boot.
The American military said Tuesday that it had credible evidence linking Iranians and their Iraqi associates, detained here in raids last week, to criminal activities, including attacks against American forces. Evidence also emerged that some of the detainees were involved in shipments of weapons to illegal armed groups in Iraq.
But surely the septics cannot do it alone, they will need allies for the next great crusade.
Stretched but not overstreched? Not for long if the worst happens.
I wouldnt fancy going after Iran, thats a different ball game alltogether.
Indeed, reduce their infrastructure to rubble, reduce their fighting capabilities. But to try and occupy the country would be ludicrous.
quite agree. i dont think UK or US public would support and invasion. plenty of missiles sailing over - less personal, easier to explain. might just do it. Problem is you still end up alienating and hurting the iranian people, who may not all want to follow their jew hating boss. or maybe they do.
airburst 75miles above the centre of Iran ... EMP takes out all their computers, microwaves, toasters, aircraft, nuclear power plants, anything with a chip in it and we're back to the good old days with gatlings against fuzzy wuzzies.... just in time for tiffin. Eh what?
Tehran, Iran, Dec. 27 â Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki described the Islamic Republic as a "nuclear state", the state-run news agency ISNA reported on Tuesday.
"The United States and other Western countries are opposed to Islamic states obtaining new technologies. This is why they are running a technological apartheid", Mottaki said. He made the remarks at a meeting with Libya's visiting Minister of Planning.
"Iran has become a nuclear state. In the coming months, we will hold a grand celebration for our country's nuclearisation".
With the military research links to that other remaining 'Axis of Evil' pariah state the DPRK - anyone want to read anything into this?
The Shia have largely stayed out of the fighting so far, with Sunnis and foreign jihadis running the insurgency against foreign troops. Which is lucky as they are the majority, we're parked right in the middle of them and US supply lines run through their territory. Should they generate violence at a similar per-capita rate as the Sunnis/AQ in response to aggression against Iran then we'll see Rorkes Drift Pt II (without the happy ending) in Basra and - as soon as the Americans have run out of fuel and ammo - the same further north. Oh, and expect the Sunnis and AQ to launch a max effort as well to take advantage of the situation.
And did I mention the rather large Iranian Army ? Air power is great and all, but you can't bomb everyone at once.
