    Encircling Iran: US claims would win in 3 weeks

    RT
    May 5, 2012

    The war rhetoric from Washington towards Iran is again being ramped up – just ahead of the second round of high-level international talks on the country’s nuclear program. US military top brass claim they would need just three weeks to defeat Iran’s armed forces. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan looks at whether it’s just more tough talk – or preparation for real action.

    Yeah, just like they claimed we would "win" in Iraq in 3 weeks.

    3 weeks to beat their armed forces but 10 years+ to beat the 'insurgency'

    Depends what you define as winning. We defeated their military quickly and with few losses. It's "nation building" that was so messy.

    Same would be true here.

    Iran's revolutionary guard have around 120,000-125,000 people. How are they going to kill that many people in 3 weeks?

    Wouldn't Russia and China get involved if it came down to it? Afghanistan and Pakistan said they definitely would if the US attacked Iran.

    For 700 Billion+ a year on defense, we better be able to beat a force in 3 weeks. I think Iran has a decent Air defense and long range missiles which would cause the most problems in an invasion. But honestly the way Iraq was handled, it was insane how fast we pushed to Baghdad. The problem is we will of course be there forever and there is no reason to even think of striking Iran in the first place, but don't tell that to any neocon.

    Cuba
    North Korea
    Iran

    You don't have to kill the entire army to defeat it. Take out leadership, logistical capability, and defensive positions, and throw in a bit of propaganda and the bulk of the fighting troops will surrender within a week or two.

    This would be so stupid it's not likely to happen.

    Iraq was more-or-less an aggressive rouge State that actually did attack it's neighbors (I know what you are going to say but that's not the point of this post) so Russia and China were probably willing to let us waste our blood and treasure on them 'cause Saddam wasn't really their ally anyway.

    But my extremely limited knowledge of Middle Eastern politics tells me Iran, which despite it's evil reputation in the USA, and which hasn't actually started a war in a long long time, are more friendly with Russia and China, so they will not want the USA to overthrow their government and would possibly come to their defense.

    But who knows what crazy evil things the psychopaths trying to retain power will resort to when they see it slipping from their grasp?

    War is always an easy way to rally a Country, and having a big ole war break out would at least take any news away from anything political for the average American TV viewer. Maybe the big money behind Obummer thinks that's enough to keep him Office in another 4 years, I dunno.

    But I have no doubt there are factions of our that are doing everything that they can to make this happen.

    Nope.
    Has been planned for years, keeps running into snags/setbacks.
    But they will do it eventually. Stupidity is persistent.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Good Idea.
    Make all of the oil in the Middle East usable..(radioactive)

    That'll help.

    honestly tho, military i think even less then 3 weeks. 3days - 1 week of bombing bridges, power lines, water lines, roads, tanks, government buildings, command and control.
    week 2, military tanks will be rolling in the streets of Tehran.

    of course there would have to be months of troops build up in the area and planning and the most painful part of fighting a war, is logistics.

    as for the "insurgency" i think that would be a long/nightmare of a problem.

    They haven't figured out how to stop every last shell from hitting Saudi Arabia yet...

    If Iran knew anything they wouldn't even begin to fight back until 6 months after the invasion.

    Russia and China will use their nuke option to stop an attack on Iran. They will not let another oil nation fall into the hands of the USA. WW3 is the only outcome of attacking Iran and there will be no winners except the elite who planned the whole thing.

    Iran is not Iraq. I also seem to recall that China and Russia weren't too happy with us threatening Iran.

    3 weeks would turn into endless war because we know what happened when Bush said it would be quick in and out of Iraq.

    The thing that gets me most, is the American news media tries to make out that Iran is the aggressor in this situation. And people fall in line like good sheep.
