I think it’s the British that are most likely to be hit.
Syria can rain down missiles on their base in Cyprus.
US hits Syria, Syria hits the base in Cyprus and Tel Aviv.
If Tel Aviv is hit with chems they nuke Damascus.
Russian subs then might strike our naval assets with Sunburns loaded with 200kt loads.
This is all way beyond the abilities of a mental midget like Obama...he won’t make proper decisions.
If this evolves into WW3 Russia has more throw weight than we do. they also have a civilian defense plan and we don’t.
First use of a nuke and the world changes. Most likely will begin with an Israeli counter attack.
In a WW3 situation carriers and the like mean very little to the outcome...they are all obsolete in a major conflict.
All that counts is mobile missile launchers, subs and civil preparedness.
EMP attack on our mainland would be one of the first things to happen.
I wish Ronald Reagan were in the white house instead of the Marxist Muslim brotherhood fool.
If Tel Aviv is hit, Obama will sit on his hands. If Cyprus is hit, there isn’t a whole lot that Londonistan can do from a strategic standpoint, having gutted their military. They’ll fight back, but they don’t have the legs for any sort of protracted conflict in the ME without serious assistance from America.
Likewise, the USSR is staying out of this one, at least with respect to a nuclear missile attack on US military assets. While their SSM/ASM capability is worthy of caution, any carrier group is going to have ASW assets well outside the launch envelope of the SS-N-22 family of missiles. I’ll place my bet on the side of our air and ASW assets every single day of the week.
Likewise, the Soviet military is an underfunded shell of its former self. While it possesses a credible nuclear and strategic threat, it is sorely lacking in combat experience, basic combat preparedness and infrastructure... all communist blustering aside. They’re not about to start a nuclear conflict.
We should be more concerned with the fact that the Obamao administration has thrown many different forms of gasoline on the ME conflicts, and why.
