    How about a 1 meg nuke 100,000 ft above Tehran?

    Oh Shucks, don't tell the Global Powers that Iran has actually uncovered a few Homosexuals in Iran?
    I do not think the Global powers can stand that kind of a shock!

    No, you're right, we don't have to put it in those terms. And we have in fact put it in tangible terms.

    The plans have long been laid for a massive, disproportionate preemptive strike against Iran if necessary using tactical nukes. Reference Stratcom contingency plan CONPLAN 8022-02 confirmed in late 2003 and the subsequent Nuclear Weapons Deployment Authorization (NSPD 35) of 2004.

    And there has been a build up of American naval forces in the Persian Gulf and Eastern Mediterranean for years now. The region is bristling with American warships and surrounding countries near Iran in possession of Patriot Missiles.

    If Iran wants to talk about a "telling blow." We got things covered.

    Enough of the silly rhetoric that's what.

    Reference my post above. We ain't appeasing anybody. We're sitting ready to castrate these motherf-ers and turn their science project into smoking craters.

    You'll notice Iran didn't make stupid threats like this when Bush was prez.
    It's one thing to take that attitude, but quite another to express it in such silly terms. Speak softly and carry a big stick. Rhetorical bluster doesn't serve any valuable purpose.

    I agree, the Iranian regime has a habit of talking big, a lot of bluster without a lot of direct action usually. They like getting attention, and acting all tough. Rather childish really in some respects. The Islamic Republic of Iran has enough internal troubles that it doesn't need to be making more external troubles for itself at this point...

    Here we go. Just a small taste of what's waiting.
    January 27, 2010

    . . .Iranian Defense Minister Ahmed Vahidi . . .

    Mr. Vahidi, in an address on Jan. 19, said more than 90 foreign warships were detected in the Gulf region. He said they included Western aircraft carriers, destroyers, frigates and submarines in what has created a “military environment.”

    The deployments include expanded land-based Patriot defensive missile installations in Kuwait, Qatar, UAE and Bahrain, as well as Navy ships with missile defense systems within striking distance in and around the Mediterranean, officials said.

    General David Petraeus, who as head of U.S. Central Command is responsible for military operations across the Middle East, said this month that the United States has stationed eight Patriot missile batteries in four Gulf countries, which he did not identify.

    Yep, Iran knows any serious assault on US or Israeli interests is suicide.

    I suspect that is precisely why they are talking like this, though. Such provocation can serve to galvanize nationalist sentiment against foreign entities and thus aid in propping up a failing regime. Stirring up a bit of "external troubles" can serve in some ways as a positive. But they are definitely walking a tight rope.

    Good point! Nationalist chest thumping is pretty much the only leg the government has left to stand on at this point.

    ....it's weird to be agreeing with you Scummy, particularly in a thread about the Middle East...
