The Iranians do not intend to fight the sort of war the US can win. There will be no massed armour lined up ready for a turkey shoot, rather a slow steady remorseless grinding down of US forces and supply lines. Expect the insurgency in Iraq to blow wide open, as Iraqis are forced to choose between the foreigners with the indiscriminate approach to "force protection" and the history of pulling out of foreign countries and their neighbours who know how to hold a grudge. Simultaneously you'll see a sustained attack on US supply lines, which are currently civvy run and civvy protected. Of course the US can switch air power to deal with - but then they've taken it away from bombing Iran.
At sea the Iranians will surge everything - finally we'll get some real world data to back up all those simulations of swarm tactics. All they need to do is get lucky once - just one Sunburn, one torpedo - in some of the most congested water on the planet - and the IO war will have been won.
As for Iran's oil, just wait for the Chinese and Indian warships to turn up and start stooging round near the Iranian oil facilities thet feed their countries. Interfering in another nations energy supplies is a direct threat - verging on an act of war. Just ask the US.[/quote]
Actually ask the Japanese - it's why they attacked Pearl Harbour.
yup, the Revolutionary Guards have been running a large-scale defensive exercise over the last couple of daysOne_of_the_strange said:The enemy gets a vote too - and I've no doubt that the Iranian plans to retaliate are fairly well advanced.
