    The threat isn't for the U.S, it's for Israel. Even if Iran had the capabilities to launch a missile at the U.S. (which they don't), they would be wiped off the face of the earth from the word go.

    Israel on the other hand is well within Iran's limits I'm sure. The only question is, would Iran be willing to risk what would be an Allied Assault and the spark for WWIII. Never mind the fact that Israel supposedly has at least a 100 nuclear weapons themselves which I'm sure they wouldn't be afraid to use if things hit the fan bad enough.

    Of course we do. However, I doubt that the Iranian President no matter how insane he is, is going to risk his entire country and life on getting merely a U.S. base. He'd either want to hit Israel or the U.S. directly.

    That's the thing with warfare now a days between countries such as these is that there would be no long-term invasion. Iran would get the Japan treatment and the other countries in the Middle East would have to sit there and allow it unless they want to face the same treatment.

    Not gonna happen -- he's mad, but he's not insane. If Iran launched an attack on a US base... it would be over. You'd have hundreds of US fighters and bombers screaming over Tehran within a matter of hours. Forget about Israel doing anything... the US would obliterate all of Tehran.

    I'm sure similar attitudes were expressed when Austria–Hungary and Serbia went to war back in 1914.

    WWIII may not start exactly after but that event would be where historians would point to where the layout for it started.

    This post is naive, not a threat to the US, Iran's leaders say they will destroy us and you dont believe them.

    If Iran had a missile, how do you know they dont, what proof, just found out they had a secrect Nuke plant, no more secrets.

    And who says the nuke has to be delivered by missile, Ahkmajeemajed could simply carry the device to the UN in New York in a diplomatic pouch, ever here of a suicide bomber.

    What was it that England said before WW II, look it up.

    History does not repeat itself, human nature repeats itself.

    Nothing about my post is naive. I never said Iran's leaders didn't want us dead. I just said realistically they pose no threat because they don't.

    Iran doesn't have the capabilities to take on the U.S. and they know it. They would be wiped off the face of the earth in a matter of minutes if the U.S. decided it.

    Also, if you seriously think that they are going to carry a nuke to the UN in a diplomatic pouch then you are smoking some serious crack. Not only that, but he's going to kill all of his allies in the process? Along with the leaders of every other country that will go after his ass?

    Do you even bother to read your own posts?
