A small rocket strike is better than a big war


On January 8, 2020 at 00:50 Moscow time, 15 Fateh-313 and Qiam flew towards two American bases in Iraq. The first successful military response to US actions in modern stories can be considered completed.


On the one hand, it seems that large military bases of the most powerful army in the world should be perfect in the field of defense, capable of over-the-horizon interception of even a house fly. But in fact, American bases in the Middle East are protected by the very same Patriots and relatively outdated short-range air defense systems, which absolutely completely missed all the Hussite cruise missiles and drones, located a few kilometers from Saudi oil facilities. The most interesting thing is that on the basis of Ain al-Assad there were not even them. At least there is no mention of this. They are also absent in public satellite imagery. And this despite the fact that the United States was preparing the assassination of Suleimani before the New Year and had time to strengthen the defense.

The damage from an illustrative Iranian strike is unlikely to exceed the damage from an American strike on Syria in 2018. The only difference is that now no one was hurt at all (there were three wounded in Syria). The question was not whether Iran would answer. The only question was whether this revenge would turn into a series of chaotic actions scattered over a long period of time, or whether it would be something one-time and pathos. In the latter case, the probability of a strong American strike directly against Iran was significantly higher. In the first case, the entire effect directed at the internal consumer will come to naught. The level of the current glow suggested a pathos version of revenge for the death of Kassem Suleimani.

Al-Quds


General Suleymani himself was the commander of the Al-Quds special forces. This unit is a kind of Russian MTR, only actively supporting numerous pro-Iranian formations abroad. Al-Quds actively participated in the Syrian war and contributed significantly to the destruction of ISIS (banned in the Russian Federation).

Yes, the actions of Hezbollah, for example, during the confrontation with Israel in 2006, were largely of a terrorist nature, since targeted bombardment of densely populated territory was carried out in order to inflict heavy casualties among the civilian population. However, these actions are no more terrorist than Israeli attacks on white phosphorus along Lebanon along with similar strikes by the coalition against Raqqa or targeted shelling of the cities of Donbass by the Armed Forces. Who in this case should be eliminated from drones? No one is taking responsibility from Suleymani and Iran as a whole. But you must always remember that the United States over the past 20 years has caused the death of thousands of times more civilians. Well, if the United States decided to really fight terrorism, then let them use international law and start primarily with themselves.

Tactful microblogger


It turns out that in order to paralyze the work of any US military base, it is enough to launch one or two missiles every few hours. The habitual tactics of Americans to sit out in reinforcement, calling for help Aviationalso does not work. Especially when all the personnel of the air base, together with the flight crew, are sitting in the bunker and carefully listening to the muffled sounds of exploding rockets ... Well, what can I say? So far, so good! (c) @realDonaldTrump.

Reading Trump's tweets, one can easily recall how the same White House resident threatened Russia, Iran and Assad in Syria with “new smart” missiles for 22 targets. As a result, the familiar “Tomahawks”, AGM-158 and GBU-38 flew in for three purposes. Moreover, a decent portion of cruise missiles simply fell, not even reaching the affected area of ​​the Syrian air defense, and most were simply shot down. And Trump threatened Kim Jong-un, sticking out of habit obscure arithmetic about some 20 goals ...

Even after the Hussites hit the Saudi Aramco plant, US Senator Lindsey Graham said it was necessary to hit Iranian refineries. Factories are factories, but one can hardly remember when one state openly threatened another with direct attacks on cultural heritage sites. The last time cultural monuments were openly destroyed only by ISIS terrorists in Mosul, Palmyra and others. Or is it the spirit of the late Al-Baghdadi that settled in Trump before the New Year holidays? ..


And who will explain to Trump that he did not kill al-Baghdadi or bin Laden, against whose background it was possible to leave as a winner, but an official government official who is respected by tens of millions of people? Trump still does not understand why he needs advisers and intelligence if he already has a TV, Twitter and Ivanka in his house.

It turned out that the fountain of threats and ridiculous utterances from Twitter of the American leader and the Pentagon can be silenced with a small blow to American bases. For the first time, the United States found itself in a situation where the absence of a strike in response puts an end to the image of the “most powerful army in the world,” and the presence of an answer could lead to a major regional conflict, a victory in which is impossible for the United States at all. The choice is not easy, but subject to the most difficult intra-American confrontation and the lack of support from the allies, the head of the White House decided to hush up the situation with declarations of love for the Iranian people and further sanctions calling for a new deal.

Not the best reason


In this situation, all parties understand that a large-scale land operation against Iran with subsequent occupation is an incredibly difficult and bloody option that requires most of the military power of NATO and the Middle East allies with virtually no positive results. And such an excuse would be the worst of all possible.

The United States rallied the population of Iran to impossibility, despite the already beginning political and protracted economic crisis. And the military power of Iran very much depends on this unity. Previously, the Basij troops were obliged to mobilize 3 million reservists within 1 month, but today, looking at how many Iranians came to say goodbye to one of their leaders, we can safely assume that 3 million reservists is not the limit, and the Iranian promised authorities figure of 20 million may become a reality. Moreover, they are mobilized in this situation in a matter of weeks. Iran is not Ukraine, in which most of the conscripts flee anywhere, including the "aggressor country." In Iran, since childhood, everyone knows who the enemy is and what to do when the enemy finally comes to their country. And the States are doing literally everything to never leave the image of the enemy for the Iranians and strengthen their faith in the "holy revenge" of the overseas aggressor.


The scale of a possible tragedy


The likely full-scale military conflict could be divided into two parts: the initial one, when Iran still has a missile arsenal, fleet, aviation and air defense; secondary, when the main actions will be conducted on land with full control of airspace to establish control of the aggressor over Iranian territory. Although most experts consider only the initial stage as a response to possible attacks by the United States and its allies on the missile arsenal, nuclear facilities (including nuclear power plants, research complexes and uranium enrichment plants), the fleet and Iranian aviation with the mandatory suppression of air defense.

Initial phase


What can Iran do at the initial stage of a large-scale conflict, which can last up to several weeks?

1. Block the Strait of Hormuz with anti-ship missile strikes from land, land and air, actively using subversive boats, submarines with torpedoes, and also scattering thousands of mines.

2. To cause serious damage to the largest American bases in all directions from the Iranian border and paralyze the work of some of them.

3. Destroy several large US warships (especially if they have the courage to go into the Persian or Omani Gulf).

4. To strike at oil fields, oil refineries, ports, oil pipelines, gas pipelines and other objects of the energy industry of all the Persian Gulf countries that dare to use force or allow their territory to be used as a springboard for an attack.

5. Attack Israel both from Iran with ballistic missiles and from Lebanon and Syria through Hezbollah and Quds.

6. Activate all pro-Iranian units in Yemen and Iraq (up to 100 people mobilize in Iraq, approximately the same number of Hussites fight in Yemen, who are credited with close ties with Iran).

Only Aegis on US Navy ships and the THAAD ground-based missile defense system can truly cope with Iranian strikes. The THAAD missile defense system did not pass the test in battle, its effectiveness in multiple targets is unknown. Ships with the Aegis are included in the list of priority goals by themselves and will rather be engaged in ensuring their own survivability, rather than covering the ground military facilities of the "world gendarme". It is unlikely that the United States will build a protective shield from them along the entire Persian Gulf. As for the Patriots, perhaps they can shoot down some of the ballistic missiles, but they are not at all capable of working out the latest UAVs and KR effectively. Although the "Patriots" are still the main complex for covering US territory from land. By the way, what kind of Iranian missile threat did Washington intend to protect Europe if they could not protect even the bases closest to Iran? The question is rhetorical.

Secondary phase


It is hard to imagine that the United States will still be able to assemble a coalition of a million soldiers for the secondary phase of the operation. The theater of probable military operations in relief is significantly different from Iraq and more like an Afghan one. Only in the mountains of Afghanistan today 60 thousand Taliban are still hiding, despite the many years of efforts of the USSR and the West. And during the Afghan war with the participation of the USSR, there were approximately 150 thousand. It is not difficult to imagine how the land under the feet of the American occupiers will burn if they meet millions of enemy fighters in similar conditions. Every stone will shoot, and the States will never be able to gain a foothold in Iran ...


Such a large-scale war with the unfolding of the second phase can develop into a regional nuclear conflict in one gate. In the event of critical destruction, Israel and the United States are quite tempted to use low-power nuclear weapons in Iran’s military facilities. A collision with a multimillion-dollar army on land can also very well encourage the use of low-power nuclear charges. Moreover, even the most effective bunker-bomb GBU-57 will not be able to penetrate part of Iran’s nuclear facilities. After all, the same Fordu nuclear plant, located at a depth of 90 meters under rock formations, is quite comparable in strength to the submarine base in Balaklava (it can withstand a direct hit of a nuclear charge of up to 100 kt).

Not ready yet


The balance of power does not yet favor large-scale actions. At all US bases in the region, taken together, today, even the required 500+ combat aircraft are not even close. Near the Persian Gulf there is only one carrier group, and the transfer of 4000 paratroopers to Kuwait will also not scare anyone.

Not those attacked


In Iran, according to US intelligence, there are about 2000 short- and medium-range ballistic missiles. The maximum range of some of them (Shahab-6) is probably about 6000 km, but in mass production such weapons not yet. Most have a range of 300-2000 km. But Iran still has a lot of cruise missiles, including anti-ship like Nur, Nasr-1, which are massively installed on both coastal complexes and small missile boats.

The Iranian fleet is armed with small frigates, corvettes and missile boats, each of which is armed with anti-ship missiles and can hit a target at a distance of 15-300 km. There are also many small submarines with torpedo-mine weapons and three Soviet projects 877 Halibut. A total of 67 surface combat ships and 21 submarines. For the Persian and Oman gulfs, this is more than enough to withstand several aircraft carrier groups at once.

A small rocket strike is better than a big war

Iranian aviation is very motley and consists of its own processing and hodgepodge of Soviet, Chinese, American and even French aircraft. Basically, these are relatively obsolete combat vehicles of 3-4 generations, but this is offset by the well-established production of parts for them and new weapons: missile launchers, air-to-air missiles, anti-ship missiles, guided by air bombs.

Iran's air defense is represented by both the old Soviet systems, which intercepted the Tomahawks in Syria, and the new Russian S-300PMU-2. There are many of its own analogues, the most famous of which is named "Bavar-373". Iran also has modern Russian Tor-M1 short-range air defense systems.

KSIR ground forces are armed with fifteen hundred tanks, most of which were produced by the USSR (T-55, T-72). There are also "Chieftains", M60, M48 and others. Representatives of the middle of the last century. The production of their own Zulfikar tanks has been launched. The situation is similar with BMP and armored personnel carriers. Iran has about 1300 of them. They should be supported by 7000 artillery pieces of various calibers and MLRS with high-precision shells of their own design.

Iran’s separate passion is UAVs. Given the high vulnerability of modern air defense systems to such unobtrusive and maneuverable targets, Iran has created many variations from reconnaissance drones to shock drones of various sizes. The most striking example is a copy of the modern American drone-reconnaissance drone RQ-170 Sentinel intercepted by the Iranians.


Is it worth it?


Neither Iran nor the United States is interested in a big war. Iran does not want to receive total destruction of the country and millions of victims, and the United States does not want to get involved in a fierce war, which will take so many resources that Washington will be forced to give up positions on almost all fronts and lose a significant share of its global influence. It is no accident that the Afghan war is considered to be one of the reasons for the collapse of the USSR, and here this analogy is quite appropriate.

Venezuela, Syria, North Korea, Iran, Russia, China ... There are not so many countries in the world that can openly repulse any plans of the "world gendarme". However, every year there are more of them. Iran's bold response, which left the last move behind itself, is the last warning to the state, which considered itself a monopoly on the use of force.

So far nothing has happened. The United States felt the decisiveness of the enemy, the readiness to do everything and will shake off what happened for a long time to come. The conflict is not settled, but not inevitable. Iran taught a real lesson to a state that previously considered itself untouchable. Now comes the era when even some regional players are too tough for the Western military machine. Still, the wonderful Iranian nature and wonderful historical and cultural monuments should please numerous tourists, and not be a complicated theater of war, and the Iranians should live happily in their country, with no cause for grief.

        Suleimani carried the official response of the Iranian government to the proposal of the Saudis for a peace plan in the Middle East in general and in Iraq, as well as Syria in particular. The general arrived in Iraq, too, not by chance, but at the official invitation of the country's government, with all the necessary guarantees of security.

        At first, I had such a vision for the development of the situation, especially since Iran spoke of a "symmetrical" answer. But as the turbidity dissipates near the death of Suleimani and the elements of the struggle of the Nanai boys appear ...
        You can comment for a long time, but in my opinion one of the main conclusions is that for the first time the hegemon made such a concession, agreeing to a "theatrical" missile strike. With Kim at one time it was not so obvious. Kindergarten, by golly: I hurt you, don’t cry, hit me and everything will work out for you ... They do this when they don’t want adults to catch. And who is our adult smile

          Hard to tell. Given Trump’s love for prime time shows, I would wait until Friday night for some voters on the east coast of the United States to sit in front of the television or in bars with drinks appropriate to the time.
          It was on the night from Friday to Saturday, Moscow time, on April 14.04.2019, XNUMX that the Tomahawks struck Damascus.

      The hunt for high officials is a double-edged sword. Firstly, it is a terrorist attack, without trial and investigation, to kill people, citizens of other countries. Secondly, if Iran begins to hunt for US officials, NATO and others will sing along - it will not seem to anyone, especially to "hunters"! And the US Army is “the most ... the most” Blown zilch. It’s not technology that fights, but people. Americans have not received tinsel since Vietnam, but it's a pity ... Is everything forgotten? They will receive and remember that to fight is not only to bomb peaceful cities, but also to take away their blind men negative sad

          Well, they and companions have always tried very hard.
          Is that not directly voiced.
          For example, diseases and deaths from oncology of leaders of objectionable states and members of their families.
          And why especially emphasize the killing of officials.
          They have been killing people around the planet for a long time and without a response.
          In Pakistan alone, over 3000 people and most civilians were killed in the process of using drones.
          Mattresses have succeeded in many ways.

            Even the assassination attempts on Castro were made by the hands of emigrants. There was no discussion of diplomatic immunity. I didn’t even talk about state participation. Everyone, of course, everyone understood, but officially - Iraqis, for example, banged Saddam. And here a delegation of diplomats is being thrown open.
            We now live in a wonderful new world without rules, in which parliamentarians are shot. Even if we assume that this is from beginning to end - a performance where the ayatola removed the leader. whose influence is greater than that of the ayatola, and Trump received a reinforced concrete reason to withdraw troops before the election - to fulfill the point of the election program.

        Not a completely correct example, it is more appropriate to compare the Iraq war, only with the condition that Iran has more powerful air defense, and the army is stronger. And the Taliban - as an Islamic movement, it is very difficult to defeat ... they are more alive than all living things. You can not say about the regimes of Saddam and Gaddafi. And the Taliban’s experience in Iran will not be very useful, a ground operation there is unlikely, but a massive strike by the KR + an attack by the air force from the international coalition is a very likely scenario.

          Not a completely correct example, here it is more appropriate to compare the Iraq war

          I do not compare the fighting with examples, I just pointed out that without a fleet and the Air Force it also turns out that you can fight (in principle). The Iraq war in this situation is not at all appropriate. There were completely different "layouts" from the beginning.

          but a massive strike by the KR + an attack by the air force from the international coalition is a very likely scenario.

          If you like the analogies, then the Vietnam War suggests itself. In Vietnam, the United States dropped 163 kg. bombs for every resident of the country (in a modern manner for an “ax” for every Vietnamese). You hope you know the results.

    It turns out that in order to paralyze the work of any US military base, it is enough to launch one or two missiles every few hours. The usual tactics of Americans to sit out in reinforcements, causing aviation to help, also does not work. Especially when all the personnel of the air base, together with the flight crew, are sitting in the bunker and carefully listening to the muffled sounds of exploding rockets ...

    And what other options are there when approaching ballistic missiles ?! Demonstratively stand tall, puffing a cigarette ?! - So it’s not like the 18th century in the yard ... or is there to get up to the anti-aircraft machine gun and naughty in the sky, like in a cheap action movie ?!

    And who is the author of this opus?
    A massive American bombing bomb will drive Iran into the Middle Ages. Without bridges, power plants, airfields and other infrastructure, a huge country will not last even a week. All Iran’s oil-related facilities are compactly located on the Persian Gulf coast and can be destroyed within a few hours. Not so Iranian fanatics and not so much they love ayatol and not so much they hate the United States and Israel to perish, it is not clear why (in their opinion).
    So Trump, in my opinion, is simply beautiful. Iran scraped for a long time. Drone for $ 230 million. tankers, shelling of American bases in Iraq - everything got away with it - lost fear. When they began to storm the embassy in Baghdad, they crossed the red line. In the USA, the lynch of the ambassador and embassy workers in the Libyan Tripoli is well remembered and no one wanted to allow a similar repetition. It was a powerful short uppercut, as Iran didn’t expect such a serious answer and all hoped that if there was anything, then in the format of mutual shocks with cries of "And who are you ?!"
    And what is even a few damaged aircraft at bases in Iraq versus almost the second person in terms of power in Iran (Sulemaini).
    So there will be no fight. We part, boys.
    ps As for Iranian proxies, in particular, Hezbollah in Lebanon. That Israel officially warned the Lebanese authorities that in the event of an Israeli attack by Hezbollah - the story of 2006, when Hezbollah fired at Israeli cities and in Beirut people sat in a cafe and calmly drank coffee, it would not happen again. Lebanon will be thrown back tens of years ago.

      Well, if you imagine politics as a fight between two rivals, then this is one thing, considering that international politics is a multi-factor process, it becomes clear that in the modern world even the USA cannot go on to conduct a full-scale war against another major power, without creating a coalition , without UN support, in a confrontation with China and Russia and in the presence of other crisis points in different regions
      This shows that the world is really becoming multipolar and the US did not draw world hegemony.
      And it’s stupid to consider how many and whom they killed where, the war sets as its goal the solution of the political question, and whoever decided it in their favor won. War is not a sport here don't win on points
      Now Iran has demonstrated its sovereignty, reaffirmed its position in the region, has not ignored the killing of its senior officer, and the United States has retreated and will now retreat further

        Everyone has the right to their opinion. In my opinion, Iran has liquidated itself. Heaps of American corpses were promised, and as a result, minor destruction at Iraqi military bases used by the United States as well.
        In the east, such things happen all the time and everywhere. The most important thing is to save face.
        Let me give you a recent example. Israel liquidated some laboratory there in Beirut and blew it up. Hezbollah promised that for such things, "heaven will open up" over the Zionist enemy. A couple of days later they fired from an ATGM at an empty roadblock at the border. They shouted that they had won. Israel did nothing, no one was hurt, because these are the rules of the game, and everything calmed down.

        You are very aggressive and rude.
        in 2006 they bombed exclusively the Beirut region of Dahiya - the stronghold of Hezbollah.
        The rest of Beirut continued to live a quiet life. And Dahiya - yes - was demolished to the ground. Then they rebuilt the Iranian money.
        Well, you probably know better. You personally interviewed all Iranians how many of them are ready to defend their homeland, and how many are not.))))) Is simply ridiculous.

        And they don’t have to protect anything. They with Kalash in their hands do not run into anyone. If that happens, then the Yugoslav scenario. Carry from the air. The US military industry should work. The shelf life of the Tomahawks comes out - it's time to change. So that's enough. First, all defense systems will be carried out with smart weapons and then stupidly stupid will destroy infrastructure. America - it is overseas, far away. Do not get it.
        America does not need Arab oil - Trump said this in his speech, so the problems with US oil supplies do not bother. Allies (KSA, Emirates ...) - there is a problem, but again, the Americans will not die there. Israel? I wrote about Hezbollah. Iran itself may have about a dozen missiles capable of reaching Israel. So they won’t bring much damage, but no one will be able to reproach Israel for a retaliatory strike.

        These are all idle speculations. Nothing will happen. Iran responded. America grinned and everyone went to their rooms.

And with competent and decisive leadership supported by the people, a lot can happen for a protracted scenario and grounding. Unpleasant for him. Well, if both are almost neighbors, who supposedly have a confrontation with the United States, will decide to compensate for the loss in some of Iran’s armaments as a result of the US eliminating products that have a longer life, then Afghanistan may happen in the most unpleasant way, as during finding there a limited contingent from the USSR.

The important thing is that you directly confidently state that you know who there is so much fanatic, who there loves how much Ayatollah. I repeat once again.

          Just such a scenario is unlikely to be. Yugoslavia is many times less than Iran. The air defense of Yugoslavia is much less in quantity and worse than the quality of the air defense of Iran. And the Air Force differs in quantity and quality. Yugoslavia had neither a Navy, nor a TRK, nor a PTRK, or a PBRK. Yugoslavia had no allies.
          You are clearly not a military expert, this can even be seen by the words “They are with Kalash in their hands” and “They will smash it from the air”. This is the level of an ordinary, biased layman who has little knowledge of the realities of modern warfare. It is unlikely that you served in the army and even more so fought.

          But this is nonsense.
          The largest importers of these products to the United States are the following countries (barrels per day):
          Canada - 2,57 million (or 33,3 percent of the total US import of this product);
          Saudi Arabia - 1,33 million (17,2 percent);
          Mexico - 850 thousand (11 percent);
          Venezuela - 760 thousand (9,8 percent);
          Colombia - 370 thousand (4,8 percent);
          Iraq - 340 thousand (4,4%);
          Kuwait - 330 thousand (4,2%);
          Nigeria - 240 thousand (3,1%);
          Ecuador - 230 thousand (3%);
          Angola - 200 thousand (2,6%).
          And this is only US oil imports. ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP and Shell also have mining shares in the Middle East. Do you think they want to get losses?

          Quote: avib
          Iran itself may have about a dozen missiles capable of reaching Israel.

          And so you not only conducted a poll in IRI, but also the General Staff of the IRGC provided you with information on the number of TR and KR.))))))
          2 missile brigades Shahab-3D, 3 missile brigades Shahab-3M, 32 launchers. About 600 missiles in mobile and mine camouflaged positions. Range 2000-2500 km and an unknown amount of Sajil (2000 km) and the Kyrgyz Republic Meskat (X-55 2000 km). Certainly they are not in a single copy, since they have been releasing them for 10 years already.
          Quote: avib
          So they won’t bring much damage, but no one will be able to reproach Israel for a retaliatory strike.

          I'm just amazed. Israel did not care for a long time about who there speaks about international laws. If Israel had the opportunity, it would have long ago dealt an air strike. In the meantime, there is no certainty that they will send aviation and all of it will return, and there will be no goals in the IDF. It would be such confidence that they would have long ago done the same as in their time in the SAR and Iraq with nuclear facilities.

          And now to the point. At least you yourself will understand your logic. If everything is so simple and the USA breaks the IRI in a week, then why haven’t it done so far? And immediately their president’s political rating would have increased, and write for yourself that you need to write off the Tomahawks, and write for yourself that the US military-industrial complex must be earned. So where is the logic?
          At the Pentagon, not stupid people are sitting and they have competent analysts. And they know very well how events will develop. To tell you?

      The problem is that even the Middle Ages can fight for years and even decades, preventing the enemy from achieving final victory. I remember in Crimea we had no electricity. Somehow everyone survived :) Unmanned aerial vehicles are not high-ranking generals. Different level. And it is better to take out American diplomats from the occupied territories. Moreover, the Iraqi parliament has already made it clear who is wreaking havoc in their country. There will be no bases and embassies - there will be no problems. Peace for everyone!)
      Iran has shown that there is no power in the world that can do whatever it wants with impunity. It’s not with impunity to attack Syria, in which there is a civil war ...
      "Lebanon will be thrown back decades ago." How? Do you use nuclear weapons? You have a wildly simple idea of ​​war and the goals of war. But apparently only with you. Otherwise, the IDF would not have set out to deploy 630 soldiers if necessary. After all, why are they, if the great aviation of Israel can "drive into the Middle Ages" all at once?
      And yes. As already said. You definitely should not speak for the Iranians. I don’t think that in Israel (as you understand from Israel) so many people can marry any of the politicians ... Well, is it possible for a gay parade ... It's a shame.

        And here is the author !! Although without a name / surname. Hello to you.
        Israel is constantly working on exercises for war options with Egypt, with Jordan and other neighbors. To do this, you need a powerful and prepared army - how can you not fight with Hamas F35 ?!
        Egypt - almost 100 million people. Power in Egypt will change - some “Khamenai” will come - he wanted to pump up a peace treaty.
        The IDF is translated as the Israel Defense Forces - it is not going to attack anyone, but should always be ready to shoot everyone around, both together and separately.
        "Lebanon will be thrown back decades ago." How? Do you use nuclear weapons? You have a wildly simple idea of ​​war and the goals of war.

        The Lord is with you. Lebanon is even smaller in territory than Israel. Bridges, roads, power plants, the airport, ports, oil storages - that’s all - they transfer to donkeys and bake coals.

        Only Israel does not need this at all - just cool some ardent Iranian money too passionate.

          I have not seen at least some army in the world called the Attack Army, but wars do not stop ... How does Hezbollah’s military power depend on airports, oil storage facilities, and power plants? Are you fighting a civilian population or an armed enemy? Then how do you differ from them? What is the benefit to Israel of being in the neighborhood of a destroyed country in which thousands of jobless people will be recruited into new groups? I have no doubt that Israel can triumph over Hezbollah, which will last for a while. But for this there will be a price, and without a land operation it will not work in any way. Moreover, Israel could have established a dialogue with Iran and Hezbollah for a long time. If only in Sochi ...

    The head of the Iraqi Parliament’s defense and security committee, Muhammad Reed, said that Baghdad has resumed negotiations with Russia on the purchase of S-300 anti-aircraft systems.
    According to him, this issue should have been resolved a long time ago.
    “A few months ago, after the attacks on the bases of the Shiite militia al-Hashd al-Shaabi in Baghdad and other provinces, the need for these weapons arose,” said Reed.

      Iran has officially stated that the main goal is the withdrawal of Americans from the region (to start with Iraq). Will a very strong blow to the US base contribute to this? Or will it draw even more Americans into the region?

        Iran initially stated that 80 of America’s 200 cargoes appeared as a result of the ROCKET IMPACT! THIS IS A PAYMENT FOR THE KILLING OF THE IRANIAN GENERAL! Then the steam came down and it turned out that it was a terrifying blow to the gophers in the desert, with the aim of scaring the amers. Now it is claimed that the MISSILE IMPACT was dealt precisely to the gophers and no one was going to shoot at the Americans. Rhetoric has changed, America is on horseback, and Iran, with its formidable attacks, has failed. A couple of militants who attacked a US base did more damage than an Iranian missile strike .......... A simple statement of the fact.

          I really feel sorry for the gophers. It was not worth them to roam the al-Assad hangars ... About 80 victims - this is for domestic consumption, no more. Missiles fell on non-residential objects. Tents with the Americans were not affected.


          Rhetoric has really changed. The World Gendarme, which threatened to hit 52 targets after hitting its base (for the first time since World War II), mumbles something about some sanctions ...

              All US foreign policy involves complete obedience and a monopoly on the use of force. For the first time in recent decades, a regional state has been able to provide a US military response and even remain untouched. Yes, for Iran this is an achievement. For superpowers, this could be the beginning of World War III. The United States has never directly stated its desire to destroy Russia or the "Russian regime." The only thing is Obama’s words “we have torn the Russian economy to shreds”. But even that is only the economy ... And then it's a lie ... The States make all warlike statements through court mongrels (all kinds of experts, ex-generals, etc.). So, against the backdrop of a whole list of states in which hundreds of thousands of people and the first persons of the states died from the aggression of Western countries, Iran so far is clearly distinguished by resilience.

        You can declare anything. Iran understands perfectly well that it is almost impossible to squeeze the United States out of BV; they have bases there in almost every country in the region. Most likely, most of the military will be withdrawn from Iraq and the bases will be hidden, but they can retain some presence in the country, everything will depend on the Iraqi authorities. But the rest of the countries of the region, the Americans settled there firmly) even if the pro-Iranian groups strike, then in addition to the response from the USA (the fact that the Americans did not answer now does not mean that they will be blind to the attacks of their bases) there will be a very big conflict with the neighboring countries in which these bases are located, and already their groups will be aimed at Iran and their proteges.

          Iran’s neighbors need American bases for defense, and not for a constant threat due to the inadequate senseless attacks of the White House. Iran’s goal is to show that US policy is overly hostile to all and can bring disaster to allies. It is clear that they will not leave, but the main thing is to start and make doubts about the benefits of their presence.

              I still doubt very much that with such constant control, Iran is able to create at least one charge. IAEA experts check on site. According to the latest data, Iran has 372 kg of uranium enriched up to 4,5%. This is higher than stipulated by the transaction (300 kg to 3,67%), but it is not 20% and not 90% (weapons-grade uranium).

    The commander of the KSIR KSIR: the wounded from the base "Ain al-Assad" were brought to Israel and Jordan

    publication time: January 9, 2020, 16:38 | last updated: January 9, 2020, 16:38


    The commander of the aerospace forces in the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh claims that the United States is concealing the aftermath of the rocket attack on Ain al-Assad airbase, which was carried out on the night of January 8.

    Amir Ali Hajizadeh said that US President Donald Trump, who claims that no one was injured in the attack, is misleading the public. According to Iran, the wounded from the air base were delivered by helicopter to hospitals in Israel, Jordan and Baghdad.
    The head of the videoconferencing also noted that one of the largest air bases was chosen as the target for the missile attack in order to cause "maximum damage to the military machine", to hit the command center, as well as equipment.
    Amir Ali Hajizadeh, quoted by Jamara.ir, also reiterated that this was the first part of the retaliation operation for the liquidation of Kase

    The first successful military response to US actions in modern history can be considered complete.

    Iran, striking at American bases in Iraq, deliberately beat by in order not to hurt any of the US troops, but about the attack itself US troops were warned in advance hours before shelling.
    If the US military would suffer, then Trump was forced to fulfill his promise and hit 52 targets in Iran, and the power of the ayatollah would cease to exist.

In Russia there are a certain number of pseudo-liberals who consider themselves superior to the “herd” and “slaves,” but who completely unconsciously take over any Western trend without asking themselves the question “why?”.

    So the situation:
    Country "A" kills person number 2, after the head of state "B".
    In response, state B launches a missile strike at the military bases of country A. Moreover, so that not a single citizen of country "A" was injured.
    The air defense of country “A” did not even begin to intercept the missile attacks of country “B”. Some argue that simply because the air defense of country "A" is backward and cannot do anything)

    Are you serious?)) Do you believe that the US air defense could not detect and intercept Iran’s missiles?) Or that Iran really wanted to plunder US bases?))

    The most logical in terms of achieving maximum results with minimal losses for the United States will be the use of strategic nuclear weapons. Namely, to allow the Iranians to deliver a series of effective strikes against their military and (even better) civilian targets, after which they can flumble without a fuss with a strategic-sized charge, burning the central regions of Iran with one blow. Of course, they won’t be able to strike such a blow from their territory (this will immediately provoke the response of our system), but if we bring the missiles into the nuclear submarines ...
    Such a blow will be a direct consequence of all US policy, their entire way of thinking. As we know, Americans in wars always adhere to the tactics of the maximum destruction of civilians and non-military infrastructure, relying on horror, psychological suppression of the population and authorities of the attacked country. When this strategy doesn’t work, they come to the conclusion that they haven’t done much horror and escalate as much as they can physically.
    The current economic and political situation of the United States is such that they need to psychologically suppress virtually the whole world. Their "allies" in confusion and vacillation, opponents intensified, the economy under the sword of Damocles monstrous debt, which is impossible to repay in principle ... What is ahead? Give up Leave, how from Vietnam? The mentality of the "exclusive nation" simply cannot stand the second such blow. Yes, and simply torn apart. Debt recovery will require ...
    As far as one can see, the authorities of all more or less adequate countries clearly understand all this. Apparently, Trump and Iran are now pressured from all sides, trying to prevent such a development of events. We will see...
