        It's like in Syria, hammering nowhere. And what is one aircraft carrier, it’s nothing at all. Senile senility among the states, the head still remembers and wants, but they can’t do anything serious, as they say, if you don’t get a penny, you won’t reach with eggs. Cheto their democracy and the dollar cease to act. But the more they threaten and hollow senselessly, the more the world realizes that with such America they are not on their way.

          Well, here you are not entirely right. Not only does an aircraft carrier consist of 80-100 aircraft, it is usually accompanied by two or three destroyers, a missile cruiser, frigates ... But in principle, Iran will not only fight off one AUG, but also defeat it. But if they drive a few more, plus the bases in Qatar, Jordan and Israel will "joyfully" take part ...
          America needs a war now. Not Ukraine, not Syria, it seems, not Venezuela. So - Iran.

                In fact, we did not know what was happening in the Iraqi army, and we do not know what is happening in the Iranian army, therefore, even knowing what the United States is capable of, we will not be able to determine the development of the conflict between them. But in any case, all these statements by the US Navy are caused by statements by the Iranian military and officials in the style of "if we are not allowed to trade, then no one will trade (this is mainly about oil and gas)", because it is beneficial for the US to send its fleet to show that "they can protect their allies from Iran. " The only question is whether there will be those willing to substitute this or that force for war.

                Well, in Iraq, they bought the generals, and then they tricked and hanged them. This time. Iraq did not defeat Iran, as a result of the war it was more likely a draw. These are two. Persians are not Arabs, they are three and steeper than all previous ones.

                Iraq is not defeated. The coalition had a thin gut to defeat Iraq in a military confrontation. They won economically, in a simple proven way - they bought the military top. For almost two and a half weeks, the Anglo-Saxons could not achieve at least some success. The British were stuck in battles on the Fao Peninsula. The Americans slowly moved to Baghdad in the sand, bypassing settlements and meeting fierce resistance. And then all 8 divisions of the Republican Guard (80 thousand l / s) suddenly disappear from the front, and then the remaining Iraqi army (295 thousand l / s) ceases resistance, changes into civilian clothes and dissolves among the civilian population. Then chaos begins in the country, and then ISIS appears.

            You were a little modest, usually the AUG includes 15-17 pennants (except for destroyers, corvettes, supply vessels, and a couple of nuclear submarines). I completely agree with you on the attack on Iran, too tough. This is practically to plunge the world into a fuel crisis-Iran immediately and tightly (despite the fact that for several years) will shut up the Persian Gulf (mines, anti-ship missiles, sinking of ships). And as soon as it arrives in Israel, I don't even want to think. And you don't have to blow in your ears for the "Iron Dome", Messrs. will appear) - Hamas tested just the other day = only 30-40% of successful interception. And about AUG it will be possible to speak in the past tense. But after that Iran (if the neighbors do not support) will be rolled out into the lunar landscape.

              Hamas tested just the other day = only 30-40% of successful interception

              This is Hamas information.
              About 700 rockets were fired.
              240 missiles shot down ONLY THOSE WHO WERE DIRECTED TO RESIDENTIAL AREAS
              If it were not for the Iron Dome, all 240 rockets fell into residential areas and the number of casualties was significantly higher. The "Iron Dome" saves not only Israelis but also Hamas from total destruction.
              Hamas tried to release at a time as much as they could, but the system as a whole held on OK. 86% is not much less than 90% at the time of [“Unbreakable Rock”], and this time most of the fire was concentrated in the area around Gaza, which is located on short distance and harder to protect
              "Iron beam" for the "Iron Dome"
              In early 2014, the Israeli company Rafael first introduced a new missile defense project called "Keren Barzel" ("Iron Ray"). It was proposed the construction of a mobile system on automobile chassis, capable of using a laser beam to hit various types of air targets. First of all, the objectives of this complex were to be rockets, shells and mines. Also provided high potential when working on unmanned aerial vehicles.

            Even if Iran manages to "punish" at least one American aircraft carrier, it will be a colossal, moral and image defeat for mattresses in the entire post-war history, which will lower the US authority to the level of a plinth. It is clear that in terms of the resources of the war, Iran is significantly inferior to the United States, which can leave no stone unturned from Iran, but after the end of the phase of "unpunished" destruction of Iran's infrastructure, the phase of ground "pacification" should begin, in which mattresses, traditionally, have nothing except for defeat does not shine.

In addition to the fact that Iran and I are neighbors in the Caspian Sea and partners in large energy projects, the United States and Russia are also crushing and imposing our bases from the west and south-west, their destroyers are constantly sailing along the Black Sea and Baltic, circling close to our borders airplanes and drones RER.

Oil is not only fuel, but also medicines, plastics and rubber (as they say from loaf to gandon). So this is another global financial crisis.

They will not make full-fledged nuclear charges in the near future. But the so-called dirty bombs (warheads for missiles) for once or twice and the mind and the will to bang it is enough.

    Dear members of the forum ... The point is not at all who - the United States or Iran who will sink or lead or be frightened. Iran is unable to withstand the US military might. Moreover, in case of war, Israel will participate in the conflict too. The point is in the US sanctions policy. The fleet is not sent to intimidate Iran, but to intimidate the EU. Many EU countries, including US allies, oppose the destruction of the "nuclear deal" with Iran. Europe doesn't need another military conflict in its underbelly, new waves of refugees and skyrocketing oil prices. Europe needs stability. And by sending the navy and aviation to the shores of Iran, the United States not only aggravates the situation, but makes it clear to European leaders that they are serious about the collapse of the "nuclear deal", and if Europe does not leave it, it will get a military conflict and all the accompanying problems. Now Europe has a choice - either to withdraw from the deal in solidarity with the United States and act as a united front in sanctions against Iran, or to reap the fruits of its tenacity in a possible military conflict between the United States and Israel and Iran.

        Missile weapons - yes. Most likely there will even be an exchange. The Iranians will hit Riyadh, and the Saudis Dongfenami across Iran.


        As for air defense - no. Air defense old trash, which is experienced without problems, just the facts:
        base air defense complex Hawk (manufactured in the USA) - produced on the line delivered to Shah. Yes, they matched it all with the Chinese radar, yes they changed something there in the rocket, and they even loaded them onto the truck and seemed to even make them work. However, this is an ancient complex of American design.


        second (and most modern) self-produced complex - the newest version, the land Standard, on a movable chassis of different types. Part of the production was transferred to the Shah, partly helped to establish the Chinese. Interestingly, the land version was presented literally a short time after the peak of the warming relationship and the lifting of sanctions. Coincidence? Don't think wassat .


        Next begins the import or import dopilka:
        FM-80 - Chinese Krotal. Near radius, but for the Americans this complex will be a problem only in the later stages (when they take out the air defense and become insolent).

        Rapier is a cast-iron air defense system of near radius. Moreover, it will be difficult to crush it with modern obstacles (at the airbase, a huge debate was with hoses and other things). But this is an ancient complex of dubious combat readiness (for the Shah was supplied only by the air defense system + zips + simulators). Well, like Krotal - only when they become insolent.

        Beech - yes, but there are very, very, very few of them.


        Thor - again, there are very few of them (fewer Buk).

        C-300 is relatively fresh. Yes. But, again, there are not too many of them. And much in efficiency will depend on application and cover. If they take to Bender Abbas threaten AUG = they will be burned there.

        C-200 - today zero efficiency.

        Chinese C-75 - it will be more efficient to remake it in the PTRC and throw it on US bases as Yemenis do.

        Actually everything. Various piece samples, Bavar, barrel artillery - do not take into account.

        Complicates the case of the Air Force - they are a museum. The most formidable F-14. But every year - reduces the number of sides. And there is no place to take the details - for the United States sawed off its planes and the remaining unutilized kits go according to the severity of control at the level of strategic nuclear forces. The only operator in the world besides the USA is Iran.

        MiGs - also do not become younger. And today, the MiG-29 against heaps of modernized Eagles / Super Hornets = in general, very, very good luck.

        The crowd of F-5 including its own production, well, this is not serious. Rather, the Saudis can still be caught, but there are no Americans. There are also residual phantoms.

        The fleet is a surface fleet of suicide bombers. Having Krotal / 1-2 PU Standard1 = they will be killed quickly. Underwater - can do something. But again, for good luck.


        Continuous mining of the strait is a temporary dirty trick. They will trawl and drag convoys. Small high-speed boats with anti-ship missiles. At the first stage, they will be dangerous (again, is there enough spirit to use immediately?). As soon as the air defense is demolished, they will begin the hunt for less priority targets (these boats)

        Ace up the sleeve (in addition to massive attacks by OTRK on US bases, Riyadh, Israel) - a large number of camouflage civilian trucks that carry 2-3 PKR Noor (S-802 - a la Exocet). They will have high survivability and sufficient efficiency (repel the attack of 2 vehicles - 5 anti-ship missiles = even Burke will be challenged). The otvetka (the hunt for all trucks indiscriminately) can be used for their own purposes - making plots with killed civilians on all kinds of farm / household vehicles that fell into your hands.

        No, Iran is the hardest nut for the United States since Vietnam. But not more.

          A competent review, but everything happens in life, and for every sly bolt there is **** in Yugoslavia, too, they thought that everything would go smoothly on paper but forgot about the ravines, did they bring down the vaunted invisibility with an outdated 125 complex? Shot down, and how many missiles were diverted by conventional microwaves? Weapons don't always decide, people are more important

            But, I recall, despite the significantly increased costs and time of the operation - the goal was achieved. They sawed off Kosovo, closed Milosevic to The Hague, where he died, changed power to Eurooptimists.

            Translating to Iran. Will it be easier for the political and religious leadership of Iran - knowing that the coalition (which will probably be with the Saudis and Israel) spent more than $ 200 billion + lost 200% more than planned + the operation was delayed for more than a year. Despite the fact that they will return a thread of Shah or Eurooptimist, the current leadership will either be imprisoned or driven underground, or will they turn the country into Libya 2015 with policy democracy?

    In fact, this strike in Syria was so negotiable that it was rushing out of all the cracks. It was also necessary to eat a fish (to show its steepness) and not to choke on a bone (not to affect Russia's zones of interests). And the choice of goals itself suggests that no one has destroyed anything serious

    And what is one aircraft carrier, it’s nothing at all.

    On that "Kuznetsov" which is now under repair? Zero ... and it won't be long before he ends up in the Persian Gulf, if at all

    Quote: PalBor
    Well, here you are not quite right. Not only is an aircraft carrier 80-100 aircraft, it is usually accompanied by two or three destroyers, a missile cruiser, frigates ... But in principle, Iran will not be beaten off from one AUG, but also defeated. .

    There is another aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean now, "Stannis" and as far as I don't know the information was true, but he with the "Lincoln" should go to the Persian Gulf.
    The probability of AUG defeat is close to zero. Americans will not come close to the shores of Iran. And Iran has a significant number of anti-ship missiles - subsonic with a range of up to 100 km. And 4-6 ships with cruise missiles and powerful air defense will be able to greatly reduce this threat. Attempts to harm the AUG will certainly be. And maybe they will try to fight back from the AUG, but here it is unlikely to defeat it.
    And if the second AUG arrives before the start of the shooting, the chances of the Iranians will still decrease. Plus in the AUG - two boats. Two AUGs have 4. Each has a dozen rockets. The transfer of V-52 strategists with cruise missiles to Diego Garcia is also a trump card

    Quote: zadorin1974
    I completely agree with you on the account of the attack on Iran. It is practically plunging the world into a fuel crisis - Iran will immediately and firmly (though for several years) shut up the Persian Gulf (mines, anti-ship missiles, ship flooding).

    On the teeth, alas on the teeth. Iran, of course, can block one or both channels in the Strait of Hormuz, but this will hit Iran first and foremost. Pipelines near the Saudis and other oil-producing countries of the Gulf pass around the strait. Through the territory of Saudi Arabia, Oman. But having blocked the strait, Iran will remain sitting on its oil, not having the opportunity to sell it. All pipelines, with the exception of one, do not have an exit abroad. The capacity of the pipeline to the Caspian is scanty. And it will need to be taken out of there somehow. An oil pipeline to India via Pakistan has not yet been built. So the crisis will certainly be, but not so global. For several years, Iran could not sell oil in large quantities and nothing, oil prices did not creep up too much. For us, this crisis will come sideways, and not to the state, where the budget is calculated on a lower price of oil than it will be. And for ordinary citizens. The price of gas will jump and decently enough. After all, it is not for nothing that there is a joke that our gas prices rise in three cases

    First case. When world oil prices rise
    The second case. When world oil prices fall
    Third case. When oil prices in the world do not rise and do not fall.

    Quote: zadorin1974
    And as soon as he arrives in Israel, I don’t even want to think ..

    Well, if he flies to Israel before he enters this war, this will be the beginning of the end of Iran. As the beginning of the end of Iraq was the war and the capture of Kuwait. Then, not only the United States will subscribe to this, but they will again assemble a coalition, and then Iran certainly will not find it enough

    Quote: zadorin1974
    And there is no need to blow in your ears for the "Iron Dome" Messrs. Jews (they will definitely show up) - Hamas tested just the other day = only 30-40% of successful interception.

    In fact, no one blows in the ears for the "Iron Dome" and no one makes another "wunderwaffe" out of it. This system is designed to intercept short-range missiles and projectiles. In addition, the interception algorithm is based on the fact that the system does not intercept all shells fired into Israel. The radar will prolong the trajectory and shoot down only those targets that fall on the territory of cities. Those that fall on the wasteland are not intercepted. Therefore, Hamas's assertion of a 30-40% successful interception only says that 60-70% of the ammunition they launched did not reach their targets, but fell from scratch.

    Well, no one will use nuclear weapons against Iran. But the answer from the neighbors is interesting. Who are these neighbors who are responsible for Iran. Is it really Afghanistan?

Therefore, our TU-160 and TU-95 are forced to fly around Europe in order to strike at Syrian territory. And our surface and submarine ships are releasing 4-8 "Calibers" at a time instead of the 26 that were released from the Caspian. Modestly say refused ... No, we were just sent in a certain direction

    Here you Dmitry are partially mistaken. Iran stores a certain amount of both plutonium and "heavy water".

    He does not have plutonium in commercial quantities, and if there is, then a few kilograms. That uranium with 20% enrichment is scattered up to 3,5% and its quantity is limited. The rest of the uranium has been deposited in other countries. Exactly the same situation with heavy water. Its production is strictly limited, the surplus is also transferred to storage in other countries.

    They won’t make full-fledged nuclear charges in the near future. But the so-called dirty bombs (warheads for missiles) are only two times, and that’s enough mind and will to bang it ..

    Iran has long dispersed its nuclear program across various facilities. Otherwise, the Jews would have closed them long ago.

    A nuclear program is not the production of shovels or pans. She did not disperse it to the mass of enterprises. As they had two centrifuge production - and remained. As there was one heavy water production facility, it remained. As there was one reactor on which theoretically in scanty amounts plutonium can be produced - it remains. I’m not talking about lower level enterprises. And this is not about the Jews. Iran is too far away to launch an airstrike on it, as on Iraq at one time. To do this, you need to have jump airfields in the same Saudi Arabia. And so far, all the statements of the Iranian leaders about the desire to erase Israel from the political map of the world are just talk. I think that Israel closely monitors the situation with Iran

      I welcome Vladimir. At the moment, Iran has about 130-150 kg of 3,5% of uranium. There are centrifuges for its enrichment. It is clear that with such a quantity it is possible to get only within 15 (?) kg of weapons. It is clear that to create a warhead Enough (you need somewhere 25-30 kg, well, I’m not a physicist). After all, Iran didn’t pass 900 tons of uranium to anyone and they didn’t convert all centrifuges. Will spent fuel elements not go to a dirty bomb? At the expense of our neighbors, who’s the main Buyers of Iranian oil? Correctly, India and China. Well, and if you drive a rat into a corner?

    The DPRK broke off from the DPRK, because the DPRK has nuclear weapons, while Iran does not. Other states have a science - urgently need to acquire nuclear weapons and means of delivery to the United States, then we will quickly leave behind. If Iraq had nuclear weapons and their means of delivery to the United States, the latter would not even have jerked toward Iraq, the same applies to Libya. But after all, radiation will also get us, so we need to do something so that there is no nuclear desert near us. The Turks will also not want to be in the zone of nuclear contamination, and Pakistan and India will also protest against the use of nuclear weapons against Iran.

    In 214, Caracalla decided to finally destroy Parthia. During the campaign, many cities and fortresses of the Parthians in Mesopotamia were taken, the graves of Parthian kings in Arbel were destroyed and desecrated, which caused great outrage throughout Parthia. The imperial prefect Praetorium Makrin, who did not want to continue the war, plotted against Caracalla and ordered him killed on the way from Edessa to Carra. The emperor was killed on April 8, 217, but his death did not stop the Parthians, who soon invaded Mesopotamia. The decisive battle took place near the city of Nisibis in 217. It lasted three days and Makrin offered Artaban V the world. Under the terms of the peace treaty, Macrin returned to Parthia all the cities and Parthian fortresses previously captured by Caracalla in Mesopotamia, as well as the lands captured from her earlier, and Rome also pledged to pay a huge indemnity of 200 million sisters. Despite these conditions, the inscription “Parthian Victory” appeared on Roman coins. Victoria Parthica. (I remember the victory in the Cold War)
    In fact, Rome tried to repeat the success of the world's first great Persian empire, only in the eastern Mediterranean and some 500 years later.
    As a result of the war, a large, once victorious Roman army, numbering approx. 70-100 thousand soldiers were essentially destroyed. All the achievements of Rome in the wars with Parthia were lost. It was the last Parthian-Roman war of many others that went on for three hundred years with varying success, as a result of which the times of the Roman Empire were already numbered.
    What happened later that allowed the heirs of Pax Romana, Pax Americana to give an occasion to reconsider the view on the Iranian problem? Yes, there was no reason. During the Crusades, the West regularly felt the pressure of the Persians, read the Mongols, feeding the army of resistance of the invaders. And the Kurd Salah ad-din put an end to the expansion of both the Mongols and the Crusaders. Then, for several centuries, the Ottomans created an insurmountable barrier to Western influence in those places. With the fall of the Great Ottoman Empire in the last century, a faint vacuum was felt and the presence of first European and then overseas corporations, with their interests in energy resources, began to increase. But, in fact, the presence of the Russian army in the first and Soviet army during the Second World War did not give their appetites to play. Today, Russia also has not weak interests in the lands of ancient Parthia.
    Now one wrong step in that territory separates the bicentennial hegemon from its thousand-year-old progenitor to follow him into oblivion.

        About Parthia was written allegorically. Persia itself (Iran) in it occupied a small part. The main battles took place in the territory of present-day Turkey (the battle of Carra, Seleucia), Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq and Syria), Armenia, etc. And so it will be today with some territories. What has Israel dealt with Hezbollah already? Iran will have someone to rely on besides Russia and Syria.

    Well, in Iraq, they bought the generals, and then they tricked and hanged them. This time. Iraq did not defeat Iran, as a result of the war it was more likely a draw. These are two. Persians are not Arabs, they are three and steeper than all previous ones.

    ***
    In genetics, the Iranians are very diluted with Arabs, and in love for dollars, the same Arabs are.
    In the East, three respect: the authority of power, the authority of money, and only then, the authority of Allah!
    So, As-salamu alaikum va-rahmatu-Llah (السلام عليكم ورحمة الله)

    Concussion. There will be no operation. For the war with Iran, dozens of such carrier groups are needed. And Iran is not so simple, you can learn from it in full. I do not think that the Americans will turn up.

    I like this on-duty wording - a threat to American interests in the region - with which they justify their invasion wherever they like. It is strange that Russia, through its actions on its territory, does not yet threaten their interests, as for example Venezuela.

    This is yes, they will not turn up, but this shaking of them, on every occasion, infuriates everyone and provoke anything and everything where they do not turn up.

    At the same time, the general commander of the CENTCOM Marine Corps, General Kenneth Mackenzie, requested the transfer of the B-52 Stratofortress bombers.

    What a power, power! laughing

    For a war, of course, it will not be enough, but there are no sufficient grounds to assert that "no operation" will take place either. From the Americans, it will begin, following the Syrian model, a massive missile launch. From something, they rush as if they broke off the chain. It is not worth counting on the fact that Russia will seriously embed the US in the Iranian showdown. Russia can send its troops to Iran only in case of a threat of occupation, as was the case in 39 with Poland and later with Iran itself. Russia will not fight instead of the Iranians! It is strange that no one takes into account Iran's retaliatory actions in Afghanistan. It is significant that no one even considers China's participation in the defense of Iran. The actions of the Americans are becoming more and more like the actions of madmen, which they do not know the next moment, the consequences can be whiter than serious. The United States can bomb Iran, but that will not end resistance to American aggression. The United States is not ready to conduct a long-term war involving a large contingent; American society is fed up with the aggressive wars of the United States.
