All this is crap. Iran’s defense will fall in the first week of any western attack. But the more important point is however much Iran offends the west by its ways, THERE WILL BE NO ATTACK AT ANY POINT IN TIME, EVEN IN THE FUTURE. What makes the western guys visit the toilet is any asymmetric retaliation by Iran. Like flooding the other side of the Persian Gulf with crude oil, damaging all desalination plants, thereby feeding citizens of Kuwait, Saudi, Qatar and other allies of USA with oil instead of drinking water. This will be a catastrophe. An attack will also create a million Osama bin Ladens from countries such as Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi, Libya, Pakistan, Afghan, India, Bangladesh, SE Asian countries. Creation of these bin Ladens will force the west to dump its high tech military gear into the dustbins, and spend their future and careers fighting a futile battle with these guys.

If Iran keeps it up there will be a war. They will lose badly. Yes they will have the chance to shoot some missiles, but this too would be over soon. The OBL copycats will happen thru Muslim intolerance no matter what?? Keep being too brave and you will pay severely.

The last paragraph of this article says, “sanctions on Iran [have] stymied efforts to develop and produce the long-range ballistic missiles capable of striking potential targets in western Europe and beyond.

Can someone explain to me why Iran would want to target any locations in Europe? These stupid claims show that the Western press, including Reuters, mostly reports nonsense about Iran.

And the US can take those systems out in a few seconds if we wanted to, and there would be NOTHING Iran could do to stop it.

Let’s face it: the only ME countries of consequence that we (Israel-US) really own are Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Dictatorship Saudi Arabia’s days are numbered, due to the Arab Spring. Support for Turkey’s leader Erdogan is rapidly falling, since he is making such a fool out of himself by alienating Syria and Iran.

Dhirajkunar’s list above (Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi, Libya, Pakistan, Afghan, India, Bangladesh, SE Asian countries) of countries to attack us, if we attack Iran, is formidable. We couldn’t even beat down Iraq or Afghanistan, one at a time. And, we desperately need ME oil.

Not to dwell too much on that China and Russia are supporters of Iran and Syria, and probably any other ME country who is willing to come into their sphere.

The prancing and war dancing of Western shills ready to take on Iran, look to me to be just the final clucking of Western war mongers, as they head for obscurity. The world’s people are sick and tired of Western hegemony: humanity can no longer afford this foolhardiness.

Other problems are intruding: evident breakdown of the Western capitalistic system (the rich are getting too rich and powerful), and global warming. Sea level has risen a foot in the last century, and scientific projections are for up to 6 feet in this century (think about the effects of that on real estate in the West and simply on people throughout the world.

What a freaking joke Iran.
Your boasting of increased missle defences are no stronger than my pinky finger. You are no threat to anyone. You boast of lies and deceptions hoping to avoid a confrontation. Well your firepower is nil in comparison to the USA and Israel. Get a real job and stop secretly building nukes losers!

This is postruring before nuclear talks in Dec. with P5 countries. Although there are chances that a war by accident in more likely than an intentional one. There are radicals on both sides Iran and Israel, and those that are more rational weighing the cost of war. I don’t think Iran would be a cake walk and the top brass in US have already voiced their concerns. The only advantage Iran has is being in the proximity of so much world’s largest resources, that it could cause immense destruction all around. Al Jazeera interviewed top rulers of the emirates and they all voiced concerns and would to see this settled by peaceful means. Otherwise they would be ousted in a heart beat if a war was to take place.
Irans policy nothing to loose, So “catch me if you can”.

@Kenradke11 & Dhirajkunar, if you really think that Iran’s defenses will be wipped out, then GO TO WAR!!! Believe me, that is just what the Islamic Republic of Iran wants. They can rely on people like you. AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN……..

If you think Iraq and Afghanistan was bad, wait till you see what a war with Iran will be like. That government will kill as many Americans and Isrealis as they can. They have been for the past 35 years!!!!

Can anyone really blame them? While of course they have said and done stupid idiotic things. And, it could all be ignored if they would just do what the western world is asking by terminating their nuke program. How about israel join them and allow UN inspectors in their country? Maybe that would be an approach that could end this stupidity? But for some reason, that is never even mentioned.

There will be no attack or ramification against Iran and their goal of obtaining nuclear capabilities.Sanctions will not work and the only ones that suffer are the citizens of Iran. Obama and the entire administration is weak and quite frankly are scrambling to find their copies of,”Running the White House for Dummies”. Wasn’t it Joe Biden who during the Vice Presidential debate who said,”Settle down,everyone just settle down with Iran. Iran is years away from obtaining nuclear capabilities or the means to launch them!” Shows what little he knows.

Iran has been preparing for war with the US for 35 years… and you think they will be wipe out in a week?? HAHAHA!!!

Not only has the US never attacked a rich country with modern defenses, or a country as vast and populus as Iran, or a country in such a good strategic striking position as Iran, or a country with a navy and airforce, they could not even land their troops for months because their is so much military hardware in Iran!

Iran has planned a two fold strategy tailored to US forces, the first phase is planned attacks on strategic targets around the whole region by their airforce, navy and missiles of which they have tens of thousands…

The second is a full blown high tech underground insurgency with a vast assortment of weapons other insurgents could only dream of!

During this stage they will no doubt flood the insurgent markets with these weapons in other countries like Afghanistan, and spread them to other gulf states like Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

All those engineering marvels in Dubai could be obliterated in a couple days, the bridge linking Bahrain to their Saudi overlords could easily be taken out… as could many of the Saudi oil resovoirs.

But the only reason why the US would ever be concerned about Iran, a country who have never attacked anyone, is because they are planing to attack them!

Without a plan to attack Iran, there is no concern about this country attacking anyone.

That’s where the ‘concern’ comes from.

“Yes we’re concerned that when we invade and conquer this country they might get angry and try to fight us and our allies, those animals!!”

It is really hilarious to read some of the warmongering comments on this article. Have any of you thought at all about why you want to attack Iran? Has Iran ever attacked the United States? What is your problem? Do you have a disease that makes you want to kill people?

If the United States is stupid enough to attack Iran, the consequences will be that all the US bases and Navy ships in the Persian Gulf will be toast. Iran plans to rely entirely on asymmetric tactics.

Iran has thousands of cruise missiles and has torpedoes that are faster than anything in the US arsenal. It has thousands of the fastest small boats in the world equipped with missiles and torpedoes. About 100 of these boats have been allocated to each American ship. Let’s see how well the clunky Navy ships respond.

Everyone should just shut up about starting another war. All the sanctions on Iran should be lifted and we should have commerce with Iran. It will beneficial to all. All this stupid claims about Iran building nukes are total lies.
