    If there ever was a way to make an aircraft carrier turn around, this is it.

    "Iran warns U.S. aircraft carrier not to return"

    I'm guessing those on the aircraft carrier are shaking in their boots, NOT!
    Actually they are probably rolling on the floor in laughter.

    interesting how?  Im  American  i do not fear Iran. I do however  feel ashamed at the way were making them fear us. We have 5115 active nuke weapons . Iran has not one .We have 110 nuke power plants . Iran has 1. Our navy  can put Irans navy on the bottom of the ocean with ease . I dont understand this threat . I feel strongly that we need to stop pushing people around.

      The point the politicians would make is that Iran are likely to launch a nuke, the US are not...so even 1 nuke is 1 too many...

    launch one at someone with thousands?  nukes are fubar.  no one uses them . why ?  cus it defeats any cause that  would use one .   1 is to many  tho your right  . we need to lead thru example .  we just sold saudi   30 billion in f 15 jets . thats the proliferation that needs to stop .  we sell irans neighbors 80 f15s its ok ?

      I understand your reasoning that it would be foolish to launch your only nuke (if they have one) at another country that has thousands. The question is are we dealing with someone who's reasonable? From all indications, no.

      What this amounts to is the local school yard bully trying to intimidate the biggest kid on the play ground. Should we be scared? No. Should we be cautious? Yes.

      Now, in your opinion, what do you think we should do if Iran is foolish enough to attack one of our ships? Just asking.

    ""If they impose sanctions on Iran's oil exports, then even one drop of oil cannot flow from the Strait of Hormuz."" These sanctions are an act
    of war by the way.
    "On Saturday, President Obama took that step and signed crippling sanctions legislation as part of the Pentagon's massive $662 billion 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)."
    The west can block Iran's oil exports, but fire
    and brimstone if Iran blocks the west's oil exports. Apparently their crime is they are not ruled by a monarchy, like the rest of the gulf states.

    Apparently someone missed my earlier post. '"On Saturday, President Obama took that step and signed crippling sanctions legislation as part of the Pentagon's massive $662 billion 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)."'. This is an act of war. The US just declared war on Iran.

    a reasonable nation wouldn't hold 5115 active warheads when 100 will suffice .  im for leading by example while  keeping the power to destroy all and any enemy's  we have. hell the world if it need be ,with the drop of a hat . my current idea  on this is to offer them at cost.  help in building them  nuke plants and power grid infrastructure .  in return for complete over site  of the program
    this is a viable achievable idea.

    and yourself  . sanctions  are a attack on civilian populations in my view  another thing im tired of my great nation doing .

      Longhunterposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Perhaps the civilian population will rise up against its government and do away with it, thus doing away with the need for sanctions. I don't agree with them completely either but they are a means to an end. Certainly much better than another war.

      When it comes down to it, nothing's ever going to change in the Middle East as they don't want it to. Until we start drilling for our own oil, we'll have to keep sticking our nose in where it doesn't belong.

    "complete over site  of the program"
    "Iran is prepared to give the International Atomic Energy Agency "full supervision" of its nuclear program for five years if UN sanctions are lifted."
    "Rather, belligerent threats and U.S. state-sponsored terrorism against the Islamic Republic are part and parcel of Washington's long-standing strategic goal of hegemonic control over the energy-rich regions of Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East."

    Actually free energy has existed for a long time.
    "Free energy technology changes the value of money. The wealthiest families and the issuers of credit do not want any competition. It's that simple. They want to maintain their current monopoly control of the money supply. For them, free energy technology is not just something to suppress, it must be permanently forbidden!"

    Facts that we must deal with:

    Iran has not invaded another country for over 100 years; it's a peaceful country.

    Iran is NOT looking to build nuclear weapons; no one has any evidence otherwise.

    Iran can't even produce enough gasoline to power itself; they aren't self-reliant.


    ... why are we bullying this country?
