    While the military advantage is overwhelmingly on the side of the US in a direct conflict, Khamenei knows that support for a war with Iran is weak in Washington. I'm sure that if Congress showed overwhelming support for military action against Iran, Tehran would have done nothing more than ramp up the rhetoric. Basically, the spineless traitorous Democrats have emboldened our enemies by their constant undermining of the President and siding with terrorists over their own service members. Much like Obama's cop-hating rhetoric emboldened the likes of BLM to harass and assault the police. It's the Democrat M.O., and mostly about securing the minority and immigrant vote, at any cost.

    The worrisome part is that if we enter a full war with Iran, the Trump-hating UN and EU would likely balk at offering their support for the US, whereas Iran would enjoy the full support of Russia. Perhaps Khamenei knows such support is forthcoming and is thus further emboldened as a result.

    The response needs to be absolutely overwhelming. Turn off the lights, comms and water. Take out their military and the centrifuges for their nuke program. Hit them so hard that their own people string them up for "STUPIDITY".

    Having been a part of a very much older version of that order of battle, the first step is to take about the two southern airbases, Bandar Abbas and Chabahar. Then it is smooth sailing to Tehran. The B-52's will probably come from all directions. They can do missions from the states, with tanking. Long days, though. I can't imagine them operating those six B-52s out of Diego, though. That is a tiny airfield and they will have to have come with support aircraft also. I wonder if Diego Burger and the self-service beach club bar are still there?

    We got Iran's #3. How about we can give them our #3 (aka Pelosi) and call it good.

    Meh, they wouldn’t want her.

    Better plan: take out #2 since #3 didn’t get the message across. Maybe #1 will clue in then.
