    I'm not aware of any instance where Iran was capable of Global Military operations against superpowers.

    Unless I've missed something.

    It's not so much Iran itself the West fears, it's the people that back it. Like these guys:

    "It is puzzling to some that Major General Zhang Zhaozhong, a professor from the Chinese National Defense University, said China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a third World War... Professor Xia Ming: "Zhang Zhaozhong said that not hesitating to fight a third world war would be entirely for domestic political needs...." And don't forget Russia, which recently said it is preparing to retaliate against NATO and has put radar stations on combat alert: "Russia is another ally of Iran, with similar policy to that of China. Toward Iran."
    And we all know how Russia feels about us. Hear what their President had to say in response to potential military action against Syria by the west.

    "First, I am instructing the Defense Ministry to immediately put the missile attack early warning radar station in Kaliningrad on combat alert. Second, protective cover of Russia's strategic nuclear weapons, will be reinforced as a priority measure under the programme to develop out air and space defenses. Third, the new strategic ballistic missiles commissioned by the Strategic Missile Forces and the Navy will be equipped with advanced missile defense penetration systems and new highly-effective warheads. Fourth, I have instructed the Armed Forces to draw up measures for disabling missile defense system data and guidance systems if need be... Fifth, if the above measures prove insufficient, the Russian Federation will deploy modern offensive weapon systems in the west and south of the country, ensuring our ability to take out any part of the US missile defense system, in Europe. One step in this process will be to deploy Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad Region.

    You need to read the EMP Commission report. It details how Iran, or any relatively small country, ould easily bring the US to its knees with a small nuclear weapon.

    An EMP attack could be easily hidden so that no conclusive evidence of the attacker could be found for years following the attack.

    We can't retaliate if we have no proof.

    Still doesn't mean they'd be able to attack you militarily from their own country like you can do to theirs.

    What the hell difference does it make if they launch a nuclear warhead from Tehran or 50 miles off the coast of Washington DC ????

    Is that the best you have because that's pretty lame.
