Iran has warned that it will strike Western warships stationed in the Gulf if it is attacked over its nuclear program.
The country's defense minister, Ahmad Vahidi said that the 90 warships stationed in the Persian Gulf -- a waterway crucial for world oil supplies -- would become targets if Iran was attacked.
Vahidid said that the vessels included submarines, aircraft carriers and destroyers, according to comments published by the semi-official Fars news agency.

Gotta figure that this is why some of the nuke sites are located near “Shia Holy Cities” like Qom. Hit a facility near there and inflame the Shia everywhere as Iran is certain to claim that we bombed a shrine.
The real strategy appears to be grabbing Iranian scientists & industrial sabotage. The question is will the Iranian Revolution happen before this ‘holding action’ fails to hold? Tough question.
Anybody that quotes Ash gets instant respect in my book.
Ok Let me get this down pat.
1) Israel hits Iran’s Nuke Plants.
2) Iran Attacks US Fleet (or those of our allies)
3) We reply with bombardment and perhaps Occupation of coast.
4) Congress declares war on Iran.
5) Draft is put in place, gas is rationed, defense plants open up. We get less junk from China etc...
6) We invade Iran and bring them a true Republic.
7) Iranian oil pays for their liberation and reconstruction rather than the usual looting of the US treasury.
Don’t fall for the ALLURE of a Persian Muslim chick in western garb. You’re going to be on the losing end of that one mark my words.
Delkash could make them blue jeans sing.
What is that! A carousel scene from LOGAN’S RUN?
My subheading: Iran to be wiped off the map if U.S. warships hit.
Good luck. You gonna fly those lawn chairs and scare us off?
That would be extremely stupid of them.
Since when have the Iranians giot the drop on the USN.Seems to me they did not do so well the last time they came out in their little hog boats.
I hate to think what a phalanx will do to them.On further consideration, I actually love to think what a phalanx will do to them.
In college during the mid-80s, I dated a classmate whose family got out just ahead of the Shah’s downfall. They were wealthy, western, and she was absolutely stunning. She was the last brunette I dated...
And I suppose you're okay with Iran having nukes? Or maybe you just think Obama is playing it smart by doing nothing? I would really like to know how things should be done in the "real world". Do tell.
When you get down to it, everyone has an A-hole and everyone has an opinion. Just because you disagree is no reason to be patronizing. Or maybe you just prefer the WII?
Sounds like a baaad idea...;0)
I call all that mother-of-all-battles talk “Islamobabble”
Monkeyboy Achmadenijad is just trying to raise the spirits of his addled followers. A counterattack on our Navy when its on a war footing would be suicidal. Iran would go for soft targets instead. Our forces should have plenty of info on Iranian tactics from Iraq and the battles that Israel has been fighting with Iran-backed groups.
That one in the upper right is smoking hot!! W00t!!!!
Iran has warned that it will strike Western warships stationed in the Gulf if it is attacked over its nuclear program.Yeah, that's the spirit, win us over. Thanks Fennie.
Bush sat on Iran for 8 years. Bush should have gone to war with Iran, not Iraq.
Iran is the heart of the terrorist beast.
