Ah, not when the enemy can’t do a darn thing about it.
It’s an insane mismatch and just doesn’t matter.
Like the mother of all tank wars with Iraq
It's not that they can't do anything. We are operating in an area where they have the ability to attack us. Ship's and aircraft in the Persian Gulf, bases in Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Qatar. All can be attacked with weapons that can be difficult to stop 100%. The question is if they are willing to absorb the massive damage we would bring with our retaliation. Don't assume our bases, ships and aircraft are invincible. But Khamenei has to know, Trump isn't bluffing.
