What If Iran Had Nukes ?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What if Iran had nukes during the cartoon riots and threatened Denmark with a nuclear strike ? An attack upon a NATO member would oblige member countries to retaliate against Iran. Or would a pre-emptive strike be warranted ?
  2. So what if Iran had had (I think the past perfect is the appropriate tense here, T6) "nukular" weapons during the cartoon riots?

    What if the Pope turns out to be a Protestant?
    What if Julie Andrews hadn't played Mary Poppins?
    What if Phoney Tony is in reality a Septic spy? (Oh, sorry. He is!)
    What if America hadn't made such a career of routinely threatening other countries (along with Israel)?

    The point is that Iran had no nukes, so the question is irrelevant. Quite apart from the fact of actually delivering the nukes to Denmark.

  3. Hahaha...

    There will be an unexplained explosion at some undisclosed iranian facility which convientley launches their capability back to the stone age. Do you really think the western governments are going to allow the iranians to advance their programme to the stage that they can manufacture anything. :roll:
  4. Out of theme ... However not too far


  5. Will they be the same German companies that built Saddam's WMD capability?
  6. Nothing would happen.

    Besides, NATO has died. If one NATO country is attacked, the rest would shurg and say "oh well, wasn't me!"
  7. A red herring. Using this analysis, India and Pakistan should have nuked each other by now.

    Even if Iran had a nuke, how would it get to Denmark? And if it did get there, it would be a clear causus belli and Iran would face serious military action with widespread international support, not the so called "coalition" of "Iraq lite".
  8. Typical tw@tish question from someone with little or no analytical abilities who has fallen hook line and sinker for the 'Bush' doctrine - without actually questionning what it is he is actually following.

    Are you THAT desperate to find a 'reason' to launch a pre-emptive strike against Iran???
