    Yeah I was thinking of that to, JF. The Iranians won't have no Air Cover for their ships.

    It's not just the Iranians that they have to worry about. That Irish Bastard Murphy can be a real pain in the ass too. The experience should do them good.
    Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.

    Saudi's buy the best kit but no experience.
    Taking the battle to Yemen in certain areas they will do fine.
    Now city block to block, no experience.
    And stay away from the mountains.

    Well the Egyptians know how to mop up, a little bit. And I don't think they will back down from any Iranian ships. They have said they will put troops on the Ground in Yemen.

    Looks like that destroyer probably carries four anti-aircraft missiles that are a copy of the early version of our Standard. Considering that U.S. destroyers carry something like 60-80 of the much more advanced version, that is awfully thin air defense. And Iran's destroyer probably has even less defense against advanced anti-ship missiles and torpedos. Iran would not have dared deploy ships like this if we had a real president. Even conspicuously diverting a single U.S. attack submarine to the waters near Yemen might have made it seem too risky. But the Islamist thugs in Tehran know they have nothing to fear from President Neville.

    Heya Matchlight. Was there a pic of it being shown? I think we could pick it up and let whoever know where it is at.

    The Saudis have both the Egyptians and the Pakistanis helping them. They shouldn't need us.

    Do we have to get involved in every frickin' dispute in the Middle East? Why is this our problem and why is it Barack Obama's job to put American service people in harm's way? To satisfy the egos of the Chicken Hawks?

    Heya Wiggen We have jumped in to help with some refueling of their planes and some Recon. BO is sending some aid to them. That's about as far as he is going to go.
