Iran invades Iraq - mv - 12-19-2009

Just a little..... testing the boy king.

Will the boy bow?

Debka panics.

He'll bend over a barrel most likely and "avoid escalation" in the name of "further peaceful understanding", which will be codewords for "I'm a political bitch."

I have very low hopes for this. I doubt US troops will even back the Iraqi forces on this one.


- mv - 12-20-2009

Most likely you right, but what has happened was a powerful slap. Repercussions to include further erosion of US credibility.

Stratfor Freebie on this.


- Gunnen4u - 12-20-2009

The only course of action the US can take is to do something with force, and do it real hard. But hey, I suppose the main thing is to change the social contract and balance of power within the US between gov't bureacrats and people, along with buying votes and then giving such airy speechs. Iran can wait, and if bowing to the Saudis shuts them up, fine.

I am positive the Iranian military has no equipment that cannot be crushed ruthlessly and with such utter destruuction by US forces as to demonstrate there are some consequences to your actions.

We'd roll right through them (some casualties, not much) and break them, with heavy losses on their side. A GI vs. one of them? No contest.


- mv - 12-20-2009

Hitting the small invasion force immediately sounds like a proper course of action.... but I'm not sure we should waste time discerning the logic of the current administration.... many of its actions and inactions appear to be caused by clinical insanity.

We don't have a clinical psychiatrist on the forum, perhaps we should invite some Major Hasan here for diagnosing obamanoids.

Gosh.... I think we would have been all better off if we replace the current boy king with that one year old boy you mentioned yesterday... always better to have smarter leaders.

And send B2 Bombers.... [Image: Bee2_Bomber.jpg]

Perhaps the best thing to do is to seal off the border, with forces, and electronics, making it virtually impossible for the units to be resupplied. That way they will have to make a move, on their own. Also, by jamming the ability to communicate with Iran, the forces would be stuck with a Hobson's choice: either make a move, or starve.

Sooner, or later, Iran will either have to write the units off as a bad investment, or they will be forced to attempt resupply. That is when they can be engaged. By leaving the initial units alone, Barry can claim that he was only being nice to one and all. Wink1

It also keeps the payment to Russia where it is currently at. No hidden interest charges.


- Gunnen4u - 12-20-2009

Sure John, but wouldn't they fight to keep their border and supply route open?

A fight may be unavoidable.

Roll your units along the already established border, and sit tight. Two can play the game Tait.


- Gunnen4u - 12-20-2009

Yes John, I realize this.

And as Iraqi or US forces move to secure the borderline then what? Iranians will let them pass?

You got it completely backwards.

I didn't see this as anything but a challenge to Iraq personally,we're out of the battlefield and withdrawing troops,it's not our fight. Apparently Iraq had enough to scare Iran away,they left w/o a fight.

Translation:
You agree to go fight against Iran to the condition it's not at Obama's command. Under the next president maybe.


- Palladin - 12-22-2009

Fred,

Wrong translation,here's the accurate one:

"I don't think this President and this support system for him are capable of making war on America's enemies,but,I'll be glad if I'm wrong".


- Gunnen4u - 12-22-2009

Under the next president is probably when such a thing will be resolved if we're still there, so your attempt at wit is moot, and a poor attempt at that.

I guess once you get a concept stuck in your head, you're really stuck on it. Fred: the paragon and model of duty, thought to what extant, we'll never know!

See the latest Stratfor's freebie on whom Iran was challenging and why.


- Fredledingue - 12-22-2009

Palladin,
Why do you think Obama's system is not able to fight the ennemies? What has changed since Bush?
Bush decided to do nothing without dialog. Obama decided to do nothing with dialog which is not realy a difference.
