Firstly,even if Washington wanted to attack the tactical situation would ensure a crushing defeat for the 5th fleet. A US Navy wargame had them losing 2 carriers,several cruisers and most of their fleet. The wily Iranians ensured no naval task force would ever be able to do more than sabre rattle impotently in 2001 when they bought Russian Sunburns.
The Sunburn is perhaps the most lethal anti-ship missile in the world, designed to fly as low as 9 feet above ground/water at more than 1,500 miles per hour (mach 2+). The missile uses a violent pop-up maneuver for its terminal approach to throw off Phalanx and other U.S. anti-missile defense systems. Given their low cost, they’re perfectly suited for close quarter naval conflict in the bathtub-like Persian Gulf.
Contrary to Tom Clancy type fiction writers,there is no defense,especially in the narrow Persian Gulf for such a threat where it narrows down to 56 km . The technological defense exists only in rigged open sea Aegis ship defense tests;the USN's primary air radar system-not in real life.
Beyond the tactical realities is another much deeper geopolitical secret. The AngloJews have always supported Iran,particularly the mullahs. America armed them throughout the Iran-Iraq war,(though they did also arm Saddam in the 80s),Khomeini himself,that quintessential cartoon caricature Islamofascist bogeyman was actually a British Indian,according to insiders.
Some linguists, who studied his public speeches in 1979 and 1980, concluded his Farsi vocabulary to be less than 200 words, so not only did he not have Persian blood, he did not even speak the languagehttp://noiri.blogspot.com/2004/03/who-is-ayatollah-khomeini.html
The AngloJews in London and Washington also desired a counterweight to Israel which in their eyes was too big for their britches in the wake of the historic 1979 Camp David Peace accords-(yes,there are important political Intra semitic differences based on Zionism which many other elite Jews reject). Only a militarily strong,prosperous,united nation in the Middle East could stand up to those upstarts now even more belligerent having just gotten one over the Egyptians during negotiations.
Just think,the most warlike US leader in decades,Bush the younger never went beyond rhetoric, sabre rattling ultimatums and outright threats-why? Not even a warning cruise missile attack or squadron of f-16s bombing a nuclear research facility like the Israelis did to the Iraqis in 1981;mind you this was before the Iranians had the S-300,the most advanced SAM system in the world, (some say they don't have it,some say they do).
People,its all theatre! Secretly the mullahs and America's real leaders,forget the barking politicos are in bed together. You've been bamboozled -again.
