Doc: I have a question.
Suppose the Security Council does nothing because Russia and China have been bought by the Mullahs.
Then, we (with or without the Israelis) bomb every nuke facility in the country, and do nothing else.
What would the Mullahs do?
Would they attempt to shut down the Straights of Hormuz to Kuwaiti oil because we bombed a nuke facility in Natanz?
Would they have a ballistic missile exchange with Israel regardless?
It's been speculated on other Iran threads that Iran isn't militarily capable of closing the straights of Hormuz. I wonder if they could do it through non-military means, ie scuttling some large tankers or other big ships in the navigation channels. I guess it depends how deep it is there. Anybody know?
At the moment the Iranian regime has the initiative.
They have many options before them and could prove very costly to the US.
If we bomb Iran and leave the regime in place like we did earlier in Iraq it would likely have a similar effect the 9/11 did on America.
Iran has threatened that if referred next week to the UN Security Council, they may close the St of Hormuz.
Then all hell would break loose.
