    U.S. Air Force performs huge show of strength with 52 fully-armed F-35A Lightning II stealth fighters - the same number of Iranian targets Trump has announced - taking off in a single wave from Utah base



    The U.S. Air Force has performed a huge show of strength by launching 52 fully-armed Lightning II stealth fighters in a single wave from a base in Utah.

    I wonder if those F14a’s for Iran were able to spool up at the same time.

    Funny how over the years the allies we have armed became our enemies. Back in the 70s the company I drove for made a bundle hauling loads of Tom Cat parts for the Iranian AF down to McGuire AFB.

    Look at how quickly Gaddafi gave up his nuclear ambitions after we took out Saddam

    You were just in favor of war five minutes ago. Try being an American for thirty seconds, it might help your dark soul.

    Damn it anyway, stop reminding these leftist idiots how Billy wagged the dog. Only Trump can be accused of that, CNN said so.

    I must have been sleeping when Hillary made that decision. Or was it that you were in a coma?

    There is no doubt in my mind that Iran knows that we have all of these and many more in our arsenal, so they're going to be very careful as to how far they push this crap, and they also know that Trump is unpredictable, so they'll limit how far they go with their threats. My guess is that they fear that for every one American that dies, they'll lose thousands. That's not a gamble they are stupid enough to make since their country is already in turmoil domestically.

    You and Democrats are the only ones pushing to go to war, Mags. Every week, you push for war with a different nation.

    More fear of loosing power. We can cripple them in a matter of moments economically. Their own population has been protesting despite the shoot to kill orders from Soleimani before his demise.

    The mullahs want to retain power at all cost, and their oppression has run its course.

    And then, Carter helped get the Ayatollah allowed back in Iran from France- where he had been exiled, because of his Hatred....

    On the subject that you posted- in 77 or 78, I hauled two 105 howitzers from Fort Riley, Kansas to NJ to meet a C17. I asked why they had to be on an exact schedule, since we weren’t at War? The receiver told me they’d be in Afghanistan by the next day...... (to fight Russians)
