Iran Prepares for War

It looks like life is about to get very interesting. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has begun deploying mobile launchers for surface-to-air and surface-to-sea missiles in the Strait of Hurmuz and other areas in the Gulf.

Iranian forces deployed the missile bases following leaked secret reports that the United States and Israel were working on a military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Iran has been under international pressure to abandon its nuclear program and uranium enrichment activities since 2002. The US, Israel and other countries are concerned that Iran is secretly pursuing nuclear weapons, although Tehran vociferously denies these accusations and claims its program is for peaceful purposes.

Iran has threatened to retaliate to any aggression on its soil by closing down the strategic Strait of Hormuz, which will disrupt global oil supplies.

Last year Iran opened a new naval facility in Jask, in the entrance to the Gulf, the declared aim of which was to enable Iran to block the enemy from entering Iran in the event that the country were attacked.

The US can count on receiving a vigorous counter-strike by sleeper cells already in place. This type of retaliation is possible because the US Federal Government failed to secure its borders since 9/11. It is not a stretch to conclude that the coming conflict will provide the US people a more hands-on experience with war not seen since the Civil War.

Iran’s preparations for a potential military strike are not new. The republic has conducted several military exercises over the past few years, some with the explicit intention of preparing the armed forces for a possible confrontation with the West.

  1. Hi LC,

    Not to worry. While I suspect President and Leader For Life Obama will surrender immediately, it’s pretty obvious that the Somali pirates are more than a match for the Iranian Navy.

    • Obama does have that Harry Reid, “we have lost the war” quality about him. I guess it all comes down to what his teleprompter tells him to say.

      I bet the skinnies could give the Iranian Navy a problem. It would be worth a few meals-on-wheels deliveries just to watch them try.

  2. Anyone paying attention to world events has been expecting this one to literally explode for some time. That crazy dink in Iran seems destined to take the world into another bloodletting. What makes it so tragic is that useless den of thieves known as the United Nations could have checkmated this years ago.

  3. Iran would look nice as a sea of glass. Maybe Israel will turn it into the next wonder of the world slash trendy destination.
