Yep, I agree completely. I am hopeful that the US tested Iran's flexing ability and found out they have more fire power than we realized and decided a war with them would not be possible.911 said:A couple of notes:
-Notice that the news outlet breaking this story is Israeli, the story had died out before with no declared casualties. It's as if they want to prod the US into a military escalation...
-Supposedly the soldiers injured had severe concussions, as opposed to being hit directly or getting shrapneled. My guess is that they had advance warning and might have been in shelters, and still got injured as those shelters weren't safe enough against missiles with 1-ton plus payloads delivered with pinpoint accuracy.
Apparently Iran has literally thousands of those missiles, which means it's a total game changer, as in an all-out conflict they will have hundreds of soft targets and they could easily inflict 1,000-5,000 US casualties. You'd have to go back to WW2 or maybe Korea for an opponent with that kind of capability, all the previous wars fought since (Vietnam, Iraq 1 and 2) were basically asymetric guerilla wars against third world enemies that couldn't strike back with that kind of accuracy and firepower.
I guess we will find out. Iran has had decades to prepare for a US invasion so it would be hard to believe they don't have something up their sleeve.
