    I dont need to make any arguments, they are being watched right now, probably by several submarines they dont know are there (but should suspect are). We probably know what time of day the captains take a ****.
    They could launch "Operation Swine Flew" and air drop some rotting pig carcasses on board their ships. That'll get them the hell outta there.

    It's not like they're about to commit suicide. What could they possibly do?

    My guess is it's a demonstration, further to their nascent nuclear program. Their inferiority complex is still being hashed out behind closed doors. Not that they'll expect to be intimidating. It's just a little 'here we are' so to speak.

    Rusty or not, they are mobile platforms for some pretty dangerous weapons. We have better-but thats not point.

    You want me to spoon feed you the answer for that? Do your homework.

    I like it. We could put Israeli markings on the planes before they are dropped to really screw with them.

    I doubt the concept of a follow-up ground invasion escapes them. Nor the more probable scenario of Israeli jets. You know those guys are itching for it. Iran won't do ****.

    I don't think Obama wants conflict with Iran and Iran would be stupid to start something. I not concerned exceot maybe the crew of the Iranian ships getting lost, running out of fuel and running out of food. It honestly would not surprise me if they did make it over to this part of the world, somebody would have to give them assistance, food supplies and help getting back to Iran.

    If that was the case, there's no doubt in my mind America would see them aright.
