Iran Plans AWorld Without America
Investor's Business Daily ^ | August 4, 2011 | IBD staff

Posted on 08/04/2011 6:23:12 PM PDT by raptor22

Defense: Tehran's navy deploys ships to the Atlantic capable of launching long-range missiles. This is not a joke. This is a dress rehearsal for the day an EMP attack ends our way of life.

'Is it possible for us to witness a world without America and Zionism?" Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad asked at "The World Without Zionism" Tehran conference in 2005. "But you had best know that this slogan and this goal are attainable, and surely can be achieved." He added that Iran had a "war preparation plan" for, as he put it, "the destruction of Anglo-Saxon civilization."

Electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, is not a subject familiar to most Americans. But it's quite familiar to the Iranian military.

It's been practicing for the day when an Iranian missile tipped with a nuclear warhead lifts off from a vessel parked in international waters off our shores, the warhead detonating high above the American heartland, sending electromagnetic waves rippling across the American landscape, frying every electronic circuit within range.

In a July 18 statement, Rear Adm. Habibollah Sayyari said the Iranian navy plans on deploying warships in the Atlantic Ocean as part of a program to ply international waters.

Two days later, another Iranian rear admiral, Seyed Mahmoud Mousavi, revealed for the first time that his navy has equipped a number of its logistic vessels and units with long-range missiles.

No need to choose, Obama has always had an agenda to plunder & destroy us, before turning us over to our enemies.

They don’t need to launch an EMP to neutralize us. All they have to do is what for our crooked bankers and politicians to destroy our economy. And that is well under way.

I wonder how the Iranians plan to deal with the Ohio class subs.Those boats would reduce the whole Arab world to cinders in about a half hour.

Remember the Cuba missile crises? Don't we have enough bombs to blow up the world several times. Forget the ships, the county would be turned back into sand...at least if I were President. Give the people 1 week warning.

They would need National Command Authority in order to launch. Do you SERIOUS think that Obama, the one who bows to all those sheiks and emirs would do that?

...A World Without America...

...will last about seven years - almost everybody dies (Revelation 4-19).

God personally takes possession of the earth which is His and the fulness thereof as the Lord Jesus comes with ten thousands of His saints to rule and reign on the earth (Revelation 20-22).

Answer: They don't. They are wishing for Armageddon, with the Mahdi leading the way. Islam in Iran is a suicide cult, just like the Japanese Emperor worship during WWII.

They actually state that Gog and Magog are the good guys and will come out the winners with Jesus following their wish to make everyone muslim or kill them and themselves in the effort.

Talk about an Anti-Christ religion, with a capital Anti.

Absolutely irrelevant, actually.

What do you think that Israel, the Brits and possibly the French (under Sarko) would do under such circumstances?

The biggest challenge wouldn't be in getting Obama to launch ... it would be to get Bibi NOT to take out the entire Arab/Persian world and just contain an Israeli nuclear counterstrike to Iran.

ROFL!!! Almost exactly what I was thinking. Bring it, Iran, with Obama and the radical element in charge of this country, I don't see how it could get much worse.

If Iran does all that, 80% of the world would agree the the USA is justified in making Iran the world's largest glass sculpture. After that the other 20% won't matter.

I'm quite sure Obama will activate a counter attack before George Soros can call and tells him not to do so..

Not every circuit and all the rest are replicable. But Iran won't be replaceable for 2000 years.

IF you believe that, you’re delusional. Barack Obama would never launch a nuke attack of any kind — not against a Muslim nation; nor probably a Socialist/Marxist nation either. Even if they hit us with EMP or nukes. He just wouldn’t do it.

It might even serve HIS purposes. total control over a crippled nation under a “state of emergency” in which the Constitution is “suspended,” as are most State and Local Governments, and the UN sends in “aid” from other nations to help Barack “keep order” and maintain some semblence of “order” in the formerly great “UNited States.” They could also handle the growing problem with domestic terrorist groups, “Militias,” “Tea Parties,” “Constitutionalists,” etc....

Ah, no. I’m letting my imagination run wild. No one could EVER envision anything like that happening here in the good ole USA...!?

He may not love this country like we think he shoud, but it still his "house". He may not like where it is located but is after all is where he lives.

Obama allowed BenLaden to be taken out. Taliban and Alqeda officials are taken out nearly everyday. We may not like the way he plays the game, but he get points on the scoreboard. I've often wondered why he hasn't ordered these kind of operations to stand down. I'm not emailing the White House and demanding that he stop even if I think that is just for show..

He’s not one of them. He's one of him. That's bad enough.

Possibly a bit premature on Iran’s part.

But it’s worthy of note - and rather suspect - that both Iran and President Hussein are making the same plans.

Iran hasn't got the ability to project naval power beyond the Gulf. They can't even project it into the Indian Ocean.

Besides, if they ever get to the Indian Ocean, there are lots of folks there that would have no intention of seeing the US fall that way -- it would ruin their own economies....

“One nightmare scenario posed,” according to Peter Vincent Pry, an expert on EMP who sits on a congressional panel looking into the threat of such a weapon, “was a ship-launched EMP attack against the U.S. by Iran, as this would eliminate the need for Iran to develop an ICBM to deliver a nuclear warhead against the U.S. and could be executed clandestinely, taking the U.S. by surprise.”

And seal the fate of any number of countries we deem necessary at that time.

An EMP would put most of us back in the middle ages until we could get generators from china, and enough wire to rebuild our infrastructure. I really would not care what happened to people on the other side of the world. It would not do a damn thing to get my heat on in January.

I’ve read that an EMP attack on the US would result in millions upon millions of deaths.If you don’t think that the people responsible would need to be destroyed,well you’re entitled to your opinion.

No, I think you may have missed my point.

I would assume there would be a global holocaust after such an attack. It’s just that when I am hunting squirrels for meat in my suburban area, I won’t get a lot of satisfaction knowing the folks that did this are dead. I mean I would like to know they paid an ultimate price, but I would still be hungry.
