    Israel stations nuclear missile subs off Iran

    Israel stations nuclear missile subs off Iran - Times Online

    Quote(Three German-built Israeli submarines equipped with nuclear cruise missiles are to be deployed in the Gulf near the Iranian coastline.

    The first has been sent in response to Israeli fears that ballistic missiles developed by Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, a political and military organization in Lebanon, could hit sites in Israel, including air bases and missile launchers.)

    With this latest information about Israeli intention, one can be reasonably certain that the Iranian Navy may also have Submarines cruising the waters off the Israeli coast.

    The Russians didn't sell Iran submarine launched cruise missiles along with their kilo-class submarines, so they would be limited to attacking shipping rather than land targets.

    Iran's strategy, if attacked would be to take a few ships out in the Straits of Hormuz and sink them. That would block the majority of the world's oil supply right there. Iran does have other measures at its disposal, but the Straits of Hormuz would be their number one priority.

    The U.S 5th fleet is well trained in various scenarios that would threaten the closing of the Strait of Hormuz, I have no doubt about their capabilities to keep the strait open.

    They can prevent ships from sinking? That's pretty awesome!

    With the current economic crisis, it's not going down in Europe or the US at this point in time. Nope, attacking Israel would be the only way to secure the apocalyptic circumstances needed for the return of the 12th imam.

    Things may be lining up for some major ugliness very soon. Iran and Israel, N and S Korea... and then there's their backers, the USA, Russia and China.

    If we went to war with N. Korea and Iran, Russia and China would surely back us, and not them. They may be on good terms with those countries, but we are more important allies, and more fearsome enemies, then N.Korea and Iran combined.
    Reality tends to have a liberal bias.

    They can prevent from ships getting in to position to be sunk. There is a small amount of space that is optimal for sinking the ships so they will block the strait, and the commanders of the 5th fleet are well aware of this. Please know a little bit of what you are talking about before you make belligerent sarcastic comments.

    What hypocrisy in this thread.

    Where are the people who were complaining about the provocation from a humanitarian ship in international waters?

    I guess a ship full of blankets and human rights activists is more of a threat than a submarine with nuclear missiles on board. Pathetic.
