As a former sailor, i can confidently say, BRING IT. They will see the most amazing fireworks display of their lives. For about .5 seconds.
As another guy formerly associated with the Navy I can similarly say bring it. Any Iranian vessels that show up off the coast and make trouble will end up 3 miles off the coast - permanently.
Well, not so fast, we need to make sure they're not just on their way to DC first!
...and about 10 seconds after that, their ship would pretty much distintigrate from under them as a couple of Mark 48 ADCAP torpedoes fired from the Los Angeles-class sub that'd been shadowing them for the last hundred miles detonated against their hull.
Pardon me while I enjoy the mental picture I'm envisioning...
I was in the USAF in Texas, in the 70's. We had Iranian student pilots attempting to learn to fly. They were utterly worthless as pilots. I doubt they have improved much since then. Just as the Iraqi Air Force was no factor in the Gulf War, I doubt the Iranian Air Force would be a factor in any war. Why would anyone expect their Navy to be top notch either?
Actually, the mushroom cloud over Tehran would be more impressive. But that would assume that we had a CIC with the cojones to use it in retaliation for an attack.
Unfortunately, we won’t have one anytime soon. 0bambi would apologize for provoking the attack and Mittens would vacillate 24 times in a day.
Keep on prepping.
