Wicked Commentary

As the impact strikes deeper into Iran’s ability to prosper as the European Union finally placed its’ embargo on Iranian oil,  Iran is saber ratting once again.

This time however, the threat may be real.  The US is moving ships, mine sweepers, and fighter jets into the area.

“On Tuesday, Iran test-fired several ballistic missiles capable of striking American bases in the region as well as Israel. Iran claimed the surface-to-surface missiles hit their targets after traveling 800 miles, The Associated Press reported. “

The U.S. Navy has now doubled the number of minesweepers assigned to the region, to eight.

“The message to Iran is, ‘Don’t even think about closing the strait,” the Pentagon official told The Times. “We’ll clear the mines. Don’t even think about sending your fast boats out to harass our vessels or commercial shipping. We’ll put them on the bottom of the gulf.”

I am sure the Dictator in Chief will use this as another way to prove he is ruthless and a great terrorist fighter.  Just one more thing in his satchel of  “greatness”.  If a conflict in the Hormuz Strait does materialize, the Obama administration will be able to divert people from the poor, non-recovering economy and onto a new war with Iran.

DavetheRave called this.  He said sometime back in an article on here that the US would be in a war with Iran by October.

The stakes are now running high and Iran is threatening our bases in the ME and Israel only 600 miles away from a missile strike.

    The only, and I do mean THE only thing, required to bring Iran into line, would be for the O-Hole-in-Chief to tell the US Navy to “step on the Republican Guard like a bug.”

    won’t happen.

      Gar.. I think you’re right. Maybe we should turn the area into a glass parking lot and be done with it!

      I agree, a glass factory is in order.

        A nice parabolic mirror for all of the solar panels Solyndra was stacking up in warehouses would be efficient.
        I drive past that place going to Santa Cruz, nice buildings, except for being empty.

          Well you finally found a place for those solar panels sans workers! Feel for ya being in Californication. The Hawk grew up in Colorado, his folks at some point moved to LA, and he finally made his escape about 5 years ago.
          At least he views it as escaping from the liberal hell hole.

              LOL! The Hawk does not even like anyone to know he lived in LA. Actually he was living in the Mojave desert in a place called Lancaster which is about 2 hours north of LA. He never went down there again after he retired from his electrical contracting business. He sure likes it here in Ole KY.

            Lancaster isn’t so bad, as long as you don’t mind living in an oven, or getting a preview of Hades.

            The Hawk liked the desert. Yuck. I could never stand to live in a desert. I’m used to lush greenery and forests here on the eastern side of the country.

            i imagine it’s beautiful where you live. The farthest north I got in CA was San Fran and that place is nuts. I was out there on an IT project
            and one time I went into this restaurant and had to wait. Across from
            me were two gay guys making out. I thought to myself why don’t you guys take that back home where it belongs. Geez.

            I don’t even care if he keeps his shirt on, at least he’s not a wimp and a limp wrist golfing boy. What’s worse, a man who hunts bare chested on a horse in the Russian territory or a floppy-eared, dumbo like, purple lipped, skinny and girlish baseball thrower. I swear I can throw a ball better than that Deviant.

            That’s right, at least we would know exactly what we’re getting. And to top that off, I know Putin is not going to turn Russia over to the UN.

  3. A serious situation no question. Makes it even MORE important than ever for Stupid to QUIT blocking any and all attempts at ENERGY SELF SUFFICIENCY here. When push comes to shove,remember one thing the asshole said: “I will side with my Muslim brothers”. Looks to me like Obama would order strikes into Israel to keep his promise to his “brothers”.

      That’s right, he said that in his own book. I think he’s pulling a fast one here. Of course Israel needs help to take Iran’s nukes out. The Liar in chief will pretend he’s going after Iran for Israel to gain the Jewish vote. He goes after each type of voter block with his own promise for this and that. Nobody should trust a damn thing he does. He’s a lying muzzie through and through.

  4. Israel now may be the second most oil rich country in the Middle East. They will soon likely be able to buy and sell us, since we have cut off much of our own energy supplies. Makes it vitally important to the pending caliphate that Israel be taken out. Remains to be seen what happens with our military when Presbo gives THAT order. Problem will be that you can’t unfuse the glass once we decimate Israel.

      The caliphate. Right, I’m sure the muzzie in the WH wants that to happen. He’ll end up selling out Israel. He already is on record saying that if Israel plans to attack Iran’s nuclear sites, he’ll warn the Iranians.
      Nice guy eh?
