    That was 9 YEARS after they began their terror campaigns. Get your timeline straight.

    Better yet let the Israeli's carry out the mission.



    Pull the old gag routine, where you offer them a chocolate bar in one hand and soon as they take it, slap them with the other hand. It's pretty much what the State Department has been doing to them all along.



    They may end up on Gilligan's Island.

    I'm sure the Cubans or Russian subs would gladly supply them.
    Modern navies strap advanced weaponry to them, in a modular fashion. Though we would have no problem destroying those ships, they could still pose a threat. How many more times are you going to make me explain this?

    I don't know about anyone else, but I tire of Iran's threats.

    The media almost never gets military reports right.
    Frigate

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    This article is about the warship. For the bird, see Frigate bird.

    A frigate /ˈfrɪɡɨt/ is any of several types of warship, the term having been used for ships of various sizes and roles over the last few centuries.

    Yeah,, right! What's it got an Aegis Combat System? That thing couldn't launch a can of spam.

    Already posted in this thread are the weapons it can fire (most made in Iran or sold to Iran by other bad actors).

    And as far as the ship being old (70s, British), we have plenty of very deadly ship still in service from the 70's and even prior.

    Those boats couldn't get within radar distance of the US Navy without getting doinked.

    Here's a Tomahawk from a USS Destoyer, asking "Would you like a twinkie?"

    The question isn't "who would win in open combat", its if they are a potential threat-and the answer to that is yes.

    Any dip**** can fill a small speedboat, full of fertilizer and be a threat. You'd actually have more luck with that tactic, then rolling up on the US shores, in the equivalent of a rusted out 1970's Eldorado.

    The question is, could they get close enough to hit the broad side of a dock. Answer is "hell no!"
