Named the reason why the US Navy will not drown the military boats of Iran in the Persian Gulf


In the United States, they are analyzing the statement of Iranian general Amir-Ali Hajizade, the commander of the aerospace forces of the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps). The general previously stated in an interview with one of the Iranian television channels that the IRGC has a list of 400 American objects in the Middle East that could be attacked if US military force is used against Iran.


According to Hajizadeh, one of such goals was originally the US military base Ain al-Assad in Iraq.

Iranian military leader:

When we attacked the Ain al-Assad base, we believed that the Americans would strike back in 20 minutes. And 400 US military facilities have become targets for our missiles.


In the United States, analyzing the statement of the Iranian general, they recalled the threat from Donald Trump to Iran - the threat to attack Iranian combat boats in the Persian Gulf in the event that they would pose a threat to the US Navy ships.

Experts argue about which exactly 400 US military facilities "as targets" for Iran could be discussed if one of the ships of the US Navy sinks an Iranian boat.

It is suggested that, among other things, Iran could attack the Fifth base fleet US naval forces in the state of Bahrain. In addition, the objectives include US military facilities in Kuwait. According to recent reports, in Kuwait there are at least 11 thousand US troops.

Against this background, the question of US missile defense at their military bases also arises. Iran carried out previous missile attacks on US military facilities virtually unhindered - the US missile defense system in the region did not show any successful actions. And therefore, if Iran really has a missile arsenal that can fly hundreds of American military installations in the Middle East, then the United States can have serious problems with protecting these objects from missiles. This is precisely the reason why the U.S. Navy will not go to sinking Iranian combat boats in the Persian Gulf.

    As I understand it, it’s one thing to knock on the table like “iron Faberge”, and to interfere before the elections in a full-fledged war with Iran is quite another.
    If Trump is reelected, then there’s nothing left to lose, you can play war game.

    Well, Iran also doesn’t want to fight with the states as an adult, but in the eastern way drooling with drool “I’ve shook your pipe!” shouting is sacred!

      They are afraid - the normal reaction of countries with at least a little adequate leadership. Otherwise, the whole world has long turned into a world of cockroaches, the only survivors of a global nuclear disaster.
      And so, they will shout, “shake”, well, as a last resort, one of the “four hundred” enemy objects will be blown up with a rocket, for example, a stand-alone booth with the American “Ball”, and everyone will be happy again that they remained alive and at the same time “shook” something that. Policy!

          If the Yankees want to fight, then there is always a reason. The invasion of Vietnam, Iraq and Yugoslavia did without Casus belli, in the sense that no one attacked US citizens.
          In order to launch a company against Iran, Washington may find reasons. Yes, at least shelling of American military bases, with the victims. But ... either not time, or such an incident is needed so that the current (potential) allies turn away from Iran

              US search for at least a tense-formal occasion for a full-scale invasion

              Yes, even without the Tonkin incident, the reasons were invented in bulk.
              To begin with, American troops have been in Vietnam since 1961, at the call of France (let me remind you, Vietnam was a colony of this country), and by the 64th there were more than 23 troops - and believe me, they were mostly not advisers. France had UN support, and so did the USA. So that they could get involved in the war almost on a "legal" basis
              Secondly, the Tonkin incident did not lead to an immediate outbreak of war. Although the US Congress adopted the so-called Tonkin resolution, which granted President Lyndon Johnson the right to use the country's armed forces in the Vietnam War, he was in no hurry to use this right. On the nose were the next presidential election, and Johnson, speaking under the banner of "candidate of peace", did not need war at all. The United States entered the active phase of hostilities only after 8 months - in March 65th.
              But Iraq, Yugoslavia - there was not even close the notorious Casus belli, and even UN sanctions

      every Amy administration should bring (conditionally to the Fed?) an increase in sales of dollars, the market of the X-country and, accordingly, deploy the policy of this state to the United States (what place?). OTHERWISE will be thrown out with a shame. The 2nd successful election of Trump is his signature on the demand of bankers. need to prepare.

      Practice shows that with the imagination of the amers everything is in order and they constantly surprise opponents. Together with meanness and unscrupulousness, this allows you to achieve very impressive results.
      Unpredictability is the main lesson they learned from Vietnam.

      Why such a conclusion? During all the wars with Iraq, the BV didn’t flare up for some reason, only occupied Iraq itself ...
      During the first war with Iraq, the SAR assigned an armored division to the MNF, in gratitude for that it now blazes and lies in ruins, Iran after the war did not return the Iraqi Air Force planes flying to its territory during the war between the MNF and Iraq .. .
      BV, roughly speaking, these are Sunni (majority) and Shiite states, Iran itself is for the most part a Shiite state (the largest), they have no allies in the BV who could help him, because SAR and Yemen themselves in ruins ....
      Well, and who will be outraged by the US actions in the BV against Iran, on the contrary, Saudi Arabia and other Persian monarchies, as well as Israeli Jews, under loud cries and hooting will support the United States ...
      The former "Small Shaitan" should also not give a damn about Iran, but the Russian Federation should not allow occupation of northern Iran, I think this is the "red line" for the Russian Federation ....
      When fighting against Iran, the United States does not need to occupy the whole Iran, they are only interested in oil fields in western Iran and depriving Iran of access to the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz ... all the armed forces and the IRGC of Iran will be crushed and driven into the interior of the country, forces for this the United States is quite enough ...
      And do not forget that the national composition of Iran is heterogeneous ....

        Vasily, imagine for a moment the blow of 8..10 thousand rockets. Of course, and “cooler” the cornet.
        Since the 80s, Iranians have been developing effective mines and torpedoes. There are more than one mini submarine. Radio-controlled boats.
        After the collapse of the USSR, a lot of Ukrainian swimmers were trained by Ukrainian specialists, and alas, fighting dolphins.
        Plastic drones could destroy the oil infrastructure of the Saudis.

      Cool! These dozens, and if you're lucky, hundreds of holes with a diameter of 10-15 mm., In the skin of an aircraft carrier I will make it, above the waterline, looking like a colander.
      But the key here was that they would all be above water level, and yes someone would be killed, something would suffer, but as the song says: "The squad did not notice the loss of a soldier" and the aircraft carrier itself would not even suffer in order to stop flying the task.
      All combustible substances and ammunition are hidden below the waterline, and not one torpedo is necessary to inflict critical damage on him, and not these mosquito bites of the ATGM.

      Iranian Navy and their ability to resist US AUG
      article of 05.2019
      Small patrol and missile boats are an extremely motley bunch of different boats, with a displacement of 14 to 98 tons, in which even a certain number of ekranoplanes and hovercraft managed to lodge.

      https://topwar.ru/158036-vms-irana-i-ih-vozmozhnosti-protivostojat-aug-ssha.html
      Yesterday, the next ZVO number for 04.2020 was put in my mailbox, there’s just an article: "Iranian Navy", S.64-70.
      Iranian Navy: 53 boats - 14 RCA, 18 PKA, 3 watchmen., 3 AKA, 6 DKA, 9 DKVP.
      Navy KSIR IRI: 250 boats - 200 RCA of various types and more than 50 PKA.
      As you understand, I indicated only boats ....
      Judging by the photo in the magazine, 11-barrel MLRS systems (although I can be mistaken, the photo is not large) of a small caliber (on a metal ramp) and the DShK machine gun in front are installed on your boats.
      The development plans of the Navy of the IRI Army and the Navy of the IRGC IRI are different ...
      Navy Army IRI - Implementation of the project of the national frigate "Modge" and the completion of two of them, the construction of the Fateh diesel-electric submarine, the equipping of the ships of the auxiliary fleet of the PKRK (!).
      Navy XIR IRI - modernization of the RCA with the installation of launchers on them with anti-ship missiles "Kader" (an analogue of the Chinese S-802). In addition, this is (in my opinion) a threat to US Navy warships - in 2014, a program was launched to build UAV bases, including drums, each base contains about 5 UAVs, R&D is currently underway to create them ...

    Not ready to fight - they won’t drown. If you don’t run into yourself. And if they prepare for a strike, they’ll drown it.

    Here on the VO there were articles that boats were ineffective against serious ships.
    And in the pictures often even a trifle rides without anything large.

    In Kuwait and Bahrain, if necessary, Iran will strike without thinking about what the Americans are well aware. Another “threatening” statement by Trump about the destruction of Iranian boats (not the first and obviously not the last) is exclusively the “trump” of Trump, which he uses constantly when he does not know what really needs to be done. Everything seems to the disease that he’s threatening now and everyone will run to fulfill his orders.

    It always burned there. When the West attacked Iraq, this did not lead to the consolidation of the Muslim world or the East.
    With Iran, in which case the same thing will happen.
    The difference between Iran is the possibility of retaliation against the Americans and Israel.
    But Trump always unambiguously and actively acts on the side of Israel, and Israel longs for a war against Iran, and it is desirable that he doesn’t start,
    The first missile strike if they have to deal entirely with Israel is not what they need.

    Now the shares of oil companies have fallen, perhaps someone is buying up, when they are buying up, it will be necessary for oil prices to rise again.

    The mess in the Persian Gulf will be beneficial to so many.

    Who is involved in oil shale, who bought shares, Israel, Trump, etc.

    Perhaps this year the "stars will converge" and not in the best way for Iran.

    Iran has thousands of “composite” (fiberglass) motor boats. Subtle for radars and carrying 4-5 launchers "Cornet".

    I would cut the sturgeon every 10-12. They do not have so many boats and launchers "Cornets". There are separate boats, separately "Cornets", but not in such quantities.

    Vasily, imagine for a moment the blow of 8..10 thousand missiles.

    You can imagine. To implement is doubtful. They don’t have that much, and it’s hardly possible to organize a strike of thousands of boats with a missile launch range of 4-5 km

    Since the 80s, Iranians have been developing effective mines and torpedoes.

    Can develop and developed. What is the reality. A few years ago, something was heard about an Iranian torpedo like our “flurry”, but then silence. Yes, and where to run them from. Three, requiring repair, our Varshavyanka-type submarines and three dozen mini-submarines with a couple of torpedoes? But the latter have fewer opportunities to reach the line of attack than even the old Varshavyanka ...

    After the collapse of the USSR, a lot of Ukrainian swimmers were trained by Ukrainian specialists, and alas, fighting dolphins.

    No comments. There is simply no information.

    Plastic drones could destroy the oil infrastructure of the Saudis.
    The rise in gas prices, Trump voters will not forgive.

    In order to destroy the infrastructure “! With plastic drones” it is necessary that they get to this infrastructure. If these are plastic boats, then at least kill yourself against the wall, they will not be able to do anything against the infrastructure. For Saudi Arabia has a number of oil pipelines running through the KSA to the Red Sea and through the territory of Oman, outside the Persian Gulf ...

    Yes? With the Cornet at AUG? It’s easier with a bare heel on a saber or from MSL on a tank.

    If Cornet with PF b.ch. If the aircraft is ready for flight on deck, then the aircraft carrier may be in big trouble.
