    I never knew having brain cells was exclusive to having nads.

    Of course you didn't.

    A leader needs to have both. Obama barely has one of the two.

    Yeah, that's what the Egyptians thought, too. Look how that turned out for them.

    Don't think they couldn't surprise us. We are talking about the same country that missed 130 thousand Soviet troops invading Afghanistan.

    And, never under-estimate your enemy.
    I hope you're just being sarcastic, or perhaps only considering US aircraft in Iraq. Otherwise, you're very funny, and we must consider the following:

    Distance from Tehran to New York
    : 6,121.44 miles or 9,851.24 kilometers. You must add 3,000 more miles to hit Pacific Coast US aircraft.

    Iranian strike aircraft combat ranges

    - Mirage F1
    Combat radius: 425 km (230 nm, 265 mi) hi-lo-hi at Mach 0.75/0.88 with 14 250 kg bombs
    - Mig-29 (note: I couldn't find combat radius for the mig-29, so the max range - larger value than combat radius - is provided)
    Range: 1,430 km (772 nmi, 888 mi) with maximum internal fuel
    - F-14
    Combat radius: 500 nmi (575 mi, 926 km)
    - F-4E
    Combat radius: 367 nmi (422 mi, 680 km)

    Important Note: Iran does NOT have air-to-air refueling capability. Aircraft ranges are absolute.
    Note: the F-4E and F-14 aircraft have not been supplied with spare parts for decades. It's doubtful that any are flyable.

    If we presume Iran sends its 40 Mig-29s on a one-way suicide mission they'll run out of fuel and crash 8,421.24 kilometers short of their target.

    Thanks for the laugh, dude. That was a very funny exercise.

    Re: Iran accused over Washington terror plot

    Yeah...I'm gonna call bull**** on this story. There's more than meets the eye here. Why would Iran want to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the US? How does that benefit Iran in any way whatsoever? I see a couple of possibilities: 1) This was a plot by a few random dudes in the Revolutionary Guard with no high-level approval from anyone, or 2) The whole story was made up.

    For what it's worth, I just walked by the Israeli embassy and there isn't so much as a police car out in front. If there was really a plot to bomb it that was just uncovered yesterday, I would have thought they'd be on a little more alert, even if it's foiled.

    Re: Iran accused over Washington terror plot

    At the end of the video an ABC News reporter takes a jab at Obama about this incident stating:
    a government official pointed out his strategy of using soft diplomacy to bring Iran into the community of nations has so far not worked.
    Ouch... more fuel to add to the fire of the 2012 election.

    Re: Iran accused over Washington terror plot

    Obama's position was that all we needed to do to get along with Iran is just sit down and talk to them. So he's went from being extremely naive to being Barack Cheney Obama.
