Iran is insane. They are really asking for it.

And they aren’t going to give up until they get it, either.

Precise rockets down the chimney of all leadership in Iran.

Iran has yet to grasp the concept of economic and industrial power. The US can make drones all day long, every day of the week while Iran depletes it’s diminishing resources striking back and languishes under US economic sanctions.

I have mixed thoughts on what US interests are.

On one hand I think our ONLY interest is to prevent Iran from developing a nuke.

On the other, I am still saddled with the philosophy that the US Navy is the only force in the world capable of keeping the Gulf open to the free flow of oil, so desperately needed by the rest of Western Civilization.

How many decades more must we carry the burden of preserving Western Civilization alone?

Is now a good time to let other Western nations feel the pain of their abject irresponsibility? Maybe.

As Rumsfeld said, we can kill them over there, or wait until they come here, or something along those lines. I don’t remember verbatim, but that was the point.

Accompany each Hawk with an assault drone; upon launch detection fire off a counterbattery salvo and take out the position.

Iran is not Iran, Iran is a toady for a coalition of countries who hate the USA.

Yes, they are asking for it because Trump screwed their economy. No matter how many drones they take down don’t respond militarily and they WILL BE SCREWED.

Perhaps it’s time WE closed the Gulf, let the Iranians
and everyone else see what that really means.

Right now, the Saudis control the “holy” cities,
to let them fall into the hands of the Iranians
would be to give them control of Islam with all it’s
ramifications.

But, what do I know?
Perhaps the time has come for Allah to punish the mullahs...

Crank up the sanctions until our drone is paid for X 10... France pays X 100. SA acts like grownups.

I don’t think that Iran (the regime) will put up with the status quo because their oil exports are purportedly way down and that of course destabilizes their economy and regime.

The regime knows that as individuals they are in a “no way out” situation. I know a lot of people think that “Iran” is crazy, but we are dealing with the regime. Now the regime is crazy in the sense that they deprive their citizens of basic civil rights and force them to submit to Islam under penalty of law.

But as individuals that are trying to stay in power and they know are cornered. They need to maintain their power as a condition of their personal survival. So, what do you think they will do? Surrender themselves and be tried by a court in the Hague (like Milosevic)? Quietly retire in another country where they will likely be hunted down and likely not protected because they are wanted dead or alive?

You know, it’s not like the North pardoning General Lee at the end of CW 1.

I think it’s also worth adding that Russia doesn’t want a neutral of pro-Western regime in Iran. So expect resistance on that front.

I think this POTUS has the situation well in hand, even though the policy might seem confused.

The sanctions are hurting. They need to be abused to prove to the world the US is the bully. Then sanction enforcement will be curtailed and Iran gets the relief it needs.

NOT OUR JOB.

NOT OUR BATTLE.

NOT OUR BLOOD AND TREASURE THIS TIME.

We need to stop sending drones in the Iranian area...

OTHER COUNTRIES NEED TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE.

It’s not our job to protect oil tankers from other countries... WE HAVE OUR OIL LET THE WORLD PROTECT THEIR OWN SUPPLIES.

NOT OUR JOB. NOT OUR BATTLE. NOT OUR BLOOD AND TREASURE THIS TIME.

Iran needs and wants a hit. A hit by the US would allow them to mobilize the people. Currently most of the population seems against the guv. IMHO

I think Trump should fire about 25 missles into the desert surrounding Tehran just so the folks can see what would happen if they were fired into infrastructure.
