As for Ali.N:You're arguments about the Iraq-Iran war belong to another thread. But just so that you have your facts straight( in summary ):1) The fall of the Shah resulted in the loss of high ranking Iranian Military personnel. 2) Much of what the Shah had bought or what was of significance in the Iranian Army could not be used; since they were crippled/damaged before Imam Khomeini took over & the Americans left.3) The Islamic Republic of Iran was new & had many opponents within Iran itself which had to be dealt with.4) Iran was in political chaos.5) Bani Sadr, was a traitor!6) Iran was cut off from the world.7) The Soviet Union as well as the Americans supplied Saddam's army with whatever equipment they needed. Not to mention intelligence & covert missions( the latter was only by the Americans ).8) Many countries financially backed Saddam; that is besides almost all the rich gulf states.9) Iranian money was frozen abroad.It is then that the former coward regime in Iraq choose to attack Iran. In it's weakest stage. As I recalled it, Saddam wanted to take over in 3 days which turned to weeks & ended up where he started after 8 years! Where was the Arab Qadasiyah face when Shah Reza Pahlavi was around along with the 5th strongest fighting force on the planet! Today no Arab force( including Egypt's which most of you like to brag about is comparable to the quality of the Iranian Military ). Nor is the endurance of your people compared to mine; we are used to war time( shortage of everything ); whereas if the malls where suddenly to disappear, that would be seen as a crisis! While the Iranian People are brave & will take to the streets if they are convinced their elections were not fair; I don't see one person in Egypt speaking out against how Hossni Mubarak was able to win so many elections! The best your military did was the October war with Soviet Aid & the Eastern Block. We were able to turn back you, the West & the Soviets for 8 years! How long did your armies held back with support? 6 DAYS LOL WHAT A JOKE XDSo don't come here & " i smoke marlboro lights " us!
Whatever you say Katty lol I couldnt disagree more....We're just gonna have to agree to disagree because you will never convince me that Iraq or Jordan will join in with an Iranian invasion..Not to mention Syria is a Sunni nation by majority not a Shia nation (the Assads are of a Shia sect but are a small minority in their nation). I just see no logic or reality in what you say but you clearly seem to believe so I doubt I can convince you otherwise.
Eagle2009, logic and wisdom sometimes do not point to the same conclusion but wisdom is always right, but logic always find out what was underestimated when it had failed! Human brains will lack a capacity to handle issues with more than 5-6 unknown and computers are clueless about what is the issues and their interactions, specially in human and culture!Iraq has oil, we occupy it and get rich, was very logical, wasn't it? Are you rich yet? Maybe after you occupy Iran you will get rich? Why do you think Britain washed her hand off from colonialism? I bet you that an average British is at least 20% smarter than average American from IQ point of view and Germans maybe another 10% higher!How can Afghanistan defeat US and NATO army together, it is impossible and illogical! You and US logic is only good for finding reasons for failures! But wisdom says that when your defending your country, you make impossible possible and when you are on somebody else land you will fight like a chicken!I am sure you will find a good reason why US had lost half of its navy and Israel lost to Hizbullah after that happens! But wise people on this forum are telling you that is exactly what will happen. Because they have been in Iran and have seen the power of masses and saw how Saddam was defeated by bare hands in the first months of his aggression! Do not count so much on numbers and weapons, since you do not have a complete picture of the reality. For success everything should work as you plan, for failure it is enough for a few thing to go wrong! Look at US operation in Tabas! What went wrong? Not so much, it was windy! Could you forecast it? Of course. Did you guys deemed it necessary to check the weather? No of course not, what can bad weather do to the operation?the answer was, not only it can cancel it, it can kill half of your rescue personal on the ground!This arrogance attitude even shows in your space programs, with your shuttles explode in the air left and right or with recent disaster in Golf of Mexico when it comes to simple matters of drilling a hole! Your democracy is winning the price of stupidity! Coming to the ME and saying to people, we know that our democracy does not work in our own country and big money have bought the politicians and not a single law with some benefit for people will pass our congress, but US will promise that it will work just fine in Iraq and Afghanistan.You know, go and sell these theories to your own populations with its leaders IQ in low 100s and with its politicians IQs at much lower!
Israel always win when the odds are against them http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six-Day_Warhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yom_Kippur_Warhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1948_Arab%E2%80%93Israeli_War
I merely disagree that the Iraqi Government will join in such a war since they are too busy with internal issues and their military is hardly ready for war.
I do believe that if Israel attacked Iran, that there would likely be many (thousands) of young Shia men who would be willing to fight Israel and journey into Syria and Join the fight (assuming Syria invades Israel after such a strike),
^ small boats armed to the teeth NEED anti ship missiles that do that cool lock-on thing. The small boats I've seen use unguided rockets which wouldn't be as effective as a 3-inch gun in naval warfare.
oh Iran has those as well, ivan please re read the threads posted on the military section please! 50 ships on one boat will end the boat in a matter of an hour. these missiles can be fired at short range, i doubt they can destroy all 50 before the ship becomes a wrecking mark for fishermen! get real Ivy
The majority, bud. I've seen some pics and those 50 arn't guided.
i said SHORT RANGE!!!! AAAAARRRRGH! LOL
And now we have a pirate it seems.
SHOUTING AT YOU IS A PLEASURE!but i got you didnt I, you couldnt answer me!
GUNS SHOOT MAKES BOATS GO BOOM.
