44 #Iran warns that if the U.S. retaliates for the two waves of attacks they launched their 3rd wave will destroy #Dubai and #Haifa.

Haifa is a Left stronghold in Israel, so if that gets "destroyed" all that's left in Israel is Maccabees on meth.

Dubai is, I think, viewed as a latter-day Sodom by the more observant Sunnis, but the rest of the world won't stand for Iran making it a hostage.

This is true, but Iran might be trying to provoke an invasion of Iranian soil. On Iranian soil, Iranian nationalism will defeat an invader.

Turning Iran into "Afghanistan Junior" by crashing its infrastructure is more practical, but has knock-on effects, like: what does the planet do with another Afghanistan. We've already got one Afghanistan and it is a pain in everyone's arse

Imagine, people thought is was no big deal for Obama gave North Korea
and Iran highly advanced military technology and weapons AND HUGE
AMOUNTS OF OUR MONEY, and now they both boldly threaten our very
survival ! No big deal, according to the lock stepping fools ! Fools
are not satisfied or happy until they manage to ensure their own
destruction. Such as it has been since ancient times. Of course water has nothing to do with wet, and fire has nothing to do with hot, right ?

This is true, but Iran might be trying to provoke an invasion of Iranian soil. On Iranian soil, Iranian nationalism will defeat an invader.

Turning Iran into "Afghanistan Junior" by crashing its infrastructure is more practical, but has knock-on effects, like: what does the planet do with another Afghanistan. We've already got one Afghanistan and it is a pain in everyone's arse

Falling to foreign invaders is one thing. Paying homage to them is another. The Greeks didn't last long in Iran before getting the boot from another group of Iranians, the Parthians (professing a weird form of Hellenism). The Arabs did better but they got ousted by Iranian dynasts, too (professing weird forms of Islam).

So maybe our plan is to invade Iran until the Iranians proclaim George Washington as the reincarnated Mahdi.

217 Persia fell plenty of times to foreign invaders. No reason it couldn't again.

Falling to foreign invaders is one thing. Paying homage to them is another. The Greeks didn't last long in Iran before getting the boot from another group of Iranians, the Parthians (professing a weird form of Hellenism). The Arabs did better but they got ousted by Iranian dynasts, too (professing weird forms of Islam).

So maybe our plan is to invade Iran until the Iranians proclaim George Washington as the reincarnated Mahdi.
Posted by: boulder t'hobo at January 07, 2020 08:39 PM (ykYG2)

The Selucids were in place in most of Iran for hundreds of years, and the Perso-Greek culture fusion never really went away. There's no huge issue with homage when your elite is still mixing in with the local bosses and you have a lot of local autonomy.

Same thing with the Muslim conquest. Eventually, the landowners in Persia, mixed in with whatever Islamo/Arab culture they found useful, reasserted themselves as the rulers.

221 I think the US response will be to destroy Iranian oil refineries (limiting their military access to fuel), destroying Iranian aviation capabilities on the ground, eliminating the known long range ballistic missiles, and eliminating Iranian missile boats.

Phase two will probably be a warning to other nations to remove their ships from Iranian ports before those ports are closed from mining. A contigent of B-52s arrived in Diego Garcia yesterday and Quick Strike extended range air launched naval mines are prepositioned there. The B-52 can carry a dozen or more and launch them from standoff distance.

We are not going to nuke Iran save in the extremely unlikely case they manage to sneak a nuke into the US and blow up one of our cities.

The thing is it makes it harder for them to argue that the obama treaty is wise and that allowing them to have launchers and nukes is not suicide.

Which makes it harder for them to do business with Iran.

279 This is outrageous that President Trump has gotten the U.S. into this quagmire. You know, Quagmire is my favorite character on "The Family Guy." I should also mention that the show "Family" was one of my favorites back in the '70s. I really would've liked to nuzzle 10-year-old Quinn Cummings, who starred on that show. Speaking of shows, I just saw "Cats" on Broadway. It is amazing that they were able to train those five-foot cats to take part in a musical. If I'm elected President, I hope that one of those giant cats will serve in my Cabinet. Like I always say to my blue-collar friends, nothing beats a giant pussy. Amirite?!?

Arsaces I is king in Parthia: 247 BC
Arsaces II accepts vassalage to Antiochus III 'the Great': 209 BC

The mullahs probably aren't really in charge of anything outside of oppressing the populace. Soleimani probably was the only dude in charge with any kind of brain in his head. (I wouldn't be surprised if the guy made sure his underlings were useless barbarian fuckwits, to avoid any power plays against him).

(Grain of salt w/ all these reports)

If so, it's pretty unlikely that there were *no* casualties

364 So, rough sequence of events here, if i'm not mistaken:

- Iranian backed forces attack our embassy in Iraq. No significant result.
- US kills Iranian head ramrod and related regional stooges killed by remote strikes. Desired result obtained. (namely: dead terrorists.)
- Iran fires a salvo of missiles presumably at US assets within Iraq. No significant result.
-...?

I mean, taking the broad view, i would think Iran ought to just pack up their jacks and fuck along with themselves, now.

365 Face-saving missile strikes that miss is like shooting at a cop to save face.

Posted by: Mr. Peebles at January 07, 2020 09:02 PM (oVJmc)

366 Regardless of details from today's action and any action of ours in response, nothing is "over" or done with.

Iran's regime is under tremendous pressure on all fronts, including at home, their various hegemony-seeking ventures are all at risk. But they're not going to abandon any of them.

Their Iraq operation has multiple motives, none of which change today.

Sanctions are just biting worse as time goes on, no relief in sight. Their Iraqi proxy collection may shatter with Soleimani gone, and with popular hostility to their meddling and theft continuing to rise. Their Lebanese allies are under pressure, and Israel strikes at their operatives in Syria with impunity.

The game is young.

So, should our response be a decapitation strike? Or just take out their silkworm batteries?

No. Launching direct attacks on American military bases is a crossed line that demands a strong response. You do not say "no blood no foul" to this one. Take out the nuke program for starters, take out all ballistic missile bases and factories, take out all naval facilities. Then see what the Iranians want to do next.

The British did not have the ability to bomb Buenos Aires. They barely had the ability to reach the airport at Stanley, and couldn't bomb it with any accuracy. The fact that they hit the runway there was a matter of pure luck.

Of course, I don't know that the British would have bombed Buenos Aires even if they had the capability. I can't think that would have helped the situation out on the islands any.

You know, the thing that you lose when you stop using real aircraft carriers is the ability to operate decent airborne early warning aircraft from your carrier deck, and the British paid dearly for their lack.

Posted by: not so at January 07, 2020 08:53 PM

The British did not have the ability to bomb Buenos Aires. They barely had the ability to reach the airport at Stanley, and couldn't bomb it with any accuracy. The fact that they hit the runway there was a matter of pure luck.

Of course, I don't know that the British would have bombed Buenos Aires even if they had the capability. I can't think that would have helped the situation out on the islands any.

You know, the thing that you lose when you stop using real aircraft carriers is the ability to operate decent airborne early warning aircraft from your carrier deck, and the British paid dearly for their lack.
Posted by: Cybersmythe at January




Yes. The thing is that the Argentines might have felt differently if there had been attacks upon their home and supported the military had there been.

Sinking a boat, shooting down some planes and fighting it out in the islands kept everything away from them.

The U.S. Army issued a warning on Tuesday about "fraudulent text messages" telling people they have been selected for a military draft.

U.S. Army Recruiting Command said its received multiple calls and e-mails about the texts that falsely advise recipients to "report to the nearest branch" and warn that the recipient would be "fined and sent to jail for a minimum of 6 years" if they don't reply.

USAREC said it wants to ensure everyone that the texts are false and "were not initiated by this command or the U.S. Army."

a month ago, the most promising political dynamic in Iraq was

now stronger, the one in Baghdad weaker. Not obvious how we are better

693 Point to be made here...

If Iran's networks were intact inside Iraq, they'd have likely launched the attack from there. The fact that they had to resort to missile attacks from Iranian soil is an indicator that we've severely disrupted and/or disabled their militia structure inside Iraq.

I'm pretty sure that they would have preferred to do everything from inside Iraq, so as to maintain deniability and to ensure that it looked like the Iraqis wanted us out. This attack indicates a probable loss of their assets in Iraq, which is interesting.

Yes Grammy we're very young, at least we can continue in that delusion here at AOS. My spirit is young but my body not so much. I'm waiting on back surgery so that maybe I won't have the sciatica and have more mobility. It's ridiculous at my age that I can't work in the yard or stand in the kitchen for more than 15 minutes without back pain.

I just had a flash, iirc didn't you used to be Mama Winger? And because you talked so much about your grandkids I suggested you change to grammie Winger and that was the impetus for the change. Or am I misremembering that in my senility?

It depends on the missiles that they used. I'm not familiar with the stuff Iran's got. But I suspect that they're older models with poor guidance systems (by modern standards) that consider "landing anywhere in the target city" to be a spectacularly successful hit.

If that's the case, then the results wouldn't be that surprising.

It's also possible that we had anti-missile defenses on-site that shot down anything that might have gotten close to actually hitting the airbase.

No, I don't think so. This is playing perfectly into Trump's hands, if he wants to eliminate the so-called "Quds Force". He can now strip the Iranian air defenses, and then bomb the ever-loving out of the IRGC to his heart's content. I think this was a major screw-up on the Iranian side, and possibly due to some low-level IRGC commander getting ahead of himself.

It's an insane move on the Iranian's part. Ballistic missiles launched from Iranian territory? WTF were they thinking? Trump absolutely has to respond to this, and now he's got justification to do it.

I wonder if the regime really has control over the IRGC, at this point. It's a very serious escalation, and one that's given Trump perfect justification for destroying the IRGC in detail inside Iran. Nuts.

Second, having to cut your own switch sucks. Do you choose the smallest thinnest one knowing how badly it will sting or do you choose a thicker switch with less give that will leave bruises?

796 It depends on the missiles that they used. I'm not familiar with the stuff Iran's got. But I suspect that they're older models with poor guidance systems (by modern standards) that consider "landing anywhere in the target city" to be a spectacularly successful hit.

Do you really believe hitting a city in Iraq as opposed to hitting US military as revenge for their most "revered general" is any kind of win in anyone's mind?

I don't.

803 You do not deescalate by throwing missiles at US spaces. They need to be
taught that that is not acceptable and Trump is just the guy to do
that.

If you control your media, you don't even need to launch the missiles in order to report that you launched the missiles and blah, blah.

Luckily I never had to do it, got threatend with it once but never had it happen thankfully.

Did catch the belt a few times however. According to my mom she said you cut a decent switch, you don't cut the thin one knowing it'll hurt more but if you bring in a thick one that breaks easy you are GUARANTEED to get a worse ass beating with a switch that can cut the speed of sound.

They probably didn't have any other option for striking any US military target on short notice. They can't do airstrikes given our air superiority. They can't send an armored column to hit one of our bases - it would be demolished before it got halfway. Every US Navy ship in the region is ready to shoot first and ask questions later if unidentified small boats come near.

830 Right, but they did not bomb Buenos Aires either. Sank some ships and fought it out in the islands.

Posted by: not so at January 07, 2020 08:53 PM

The British did not have the ability to bomb Buenos Aires. They barely had the ability to reach the airport at Stanley, and couldn't bomb it with any accuracy. The fact that they hit the runway there was a matter of pure luck.

Of course, I don't know that the British would have bombed Buenos Aires even if they had the capability. I can't think that would have helped the situation out on the islands any.

You know, the thing that you lose when you stop using real aircraft carriers is the ability to operate decent airborne early warning aircraft from your carrier deck, and the British paid dearly for their lack.
Posted by: Cybersmythe at January




Yes. The thing is that the Argentines might have felt differently if there had been attacks upon their home and supported the military had there been.

Sinking a boat, shooting down some planes and fighting it out in the islands kept everything away from them.
Posted by: not so at January 07, 2020 09:25 PM (HALdu)

They didn't need early warning radar for the fleet. They got all their info about flight ops from Chile, using their radar based on a secret deal, beamed to London and then out to the fleet.

834 Iran is too broke for a war. This won't escalate and will be over shortly.

The mullahs only fired the missiles so they wouldn't appear weak in front of their citizens. It'll backfire among their hardliners when no US casualties are reported. I think that'll be the bigger scandal for them. I personally think they're heading for a coup.
