Re: U.S Assassinates Top Iranian General

This is getting pretty serious as every minute passes: 6 US F-35s seen taking off from UAE. Iran issues warning to UAE that they will be attacked should any US aircraft launched from their country attack Iran.

Re: U.S Assassinates Top Iranian General

This is very bad. I think that the regime has just signed it's own death warrant

How would the US react if Iran assasinated one of its Generals?

This is all about Trump/re-election/impeachment again. Anything to change the news and wave the flag.

Probably true, but doesn’t answer the substance of the post you quoted.

1. It is very bad
2. The Iranian regime might well not survive this.

These are valid observations regardless of the motives, or sanity, of the occupant of the White House.

Last time there was regime change in Iran it was for the worse. We might end up getting an even more radical West hating outfit, and might spread to other countries in the area. The US haven't got a good record on regime change/bullying other countries. Dialogue/sanctions not bombs/assasinations brings more results.

Re: U.S Assassinates Top Iranian General

The US would of been expecting some sort of response from Iran. the next steps will be determined by if there were any casualties (US reporting none, Iran saying they caused eighteen)

If there are no casualties i would expect Trump to let this pass as the willy waving response. If there are however then i think we will seen cruise missile strikes at key Iranian infrastructure.

Interestingly Iran have said that that is the end of their retaliation and now the ball is with Trump

Quote from The Sun:
A UKRAINIAN passenger plane has crashed near Iran's Tehran airport - killing all 176 on board - as footage of the jet on fire before it hit the ground sparks fears it was shot down.

Three Brits were among the dead as the Kiev-bound Ukraine International Airlines jet came down just hours after Iran launched more than a dozen missiles in an attack on two US military bases in Iraq.

Iran's official news agency said the Boeing 737 came down near Tehran Airport after experiencing "technical problems".

Qassem Biniaz, a spokesman for Iran's Road and Transportation authority, claimed one of its engines caught fire, causing the pilot to lose control.

But the aircraft was new in 2016 and was last checked just two days ago, the Ukrainian foreign ministry said.

Horrifying footage posted online shows the plane engulfed in flames as it went down.
With Iran lobbing uncontrolled missiles about anything could have happened. Did they end up hitting this aircraft?

Re: U.S Assassinates Top Iranian General

I do find this a little concerning.

The General, from what I have read, undoubtedly deserves his fate, so I have no concerns there.

I don't think Iran themselves poses an outright threat. They don't have the resources or manpower to do so.

What concerns me is terrorism. ISIS has not gone away, and there are likely other terrorist groups. Actions such as this will rally people to their cause, perpetuating the image of the evil West that oppresses the Muslims. Something which may well be storing up problems for the future.

Now, of course, Trump, loudmouth that he is, isn't going to discuss anything classified that the US may be doing to prevent terrorism. For all his faults, he isn't an idiot. He knows that if he did publicly announce some classified action and got good, honest, American soldiers killed, the Democrats and media would be all over that, and it'd likely terminate his chances of re-election, if not help the current impeachment action.

So it is entirely possible that the US is doing something they aren't telling us with the aim of preventing terrorism.

And the small matter of avoiding an all-out war between Israel and Iran which is what will happen if the Iranian regime is allowed to continue along it's current path.

Unlikely, because the US bases targeted were nowhere near the Tehran-Kiev flight path.

Re: U.S Assassinates Top Iranian General

There is speculation that jittery ground defence gunners in Tehran could have fired on the plane thinking an American counter-attack was underway.

Re: U.S Assassinates Top Iranian General

We all know the US has Spy satelites over that area.

The forst think they will take out is radar sittes, theny any missile launch site that will wake up at the last second, but I guess you can track these vehicles to a point.

Iran wouldn't stand a chance against the US.

In a conventional war Iran vs US? correct,

Iran however manages to draw it's allies in and it's a different ball game.

Israel gets involved and we're really in the crap..... Hence, why in GW1 & 2 Israel had to be persuaded not to retaliate under any circumstances.

What an absolute joke, it’s Trump man bad again with you isn’t it, did you see the news reports coming out of Iran during this Iranian monsters general’s funeral procession, they were running over and crushing their own people to death which in turn caused the stampede which killed a further 58 people. But Trump still bad for killing a Terrorist scumbag and as usual, you’re on the side of our enemies.
