    A test run for that system would be very helpful, actually. I'm very curious how well it works.

    They can target whatever the fuck they want. Let's see them actually hit something with any accuracy.

    Still convinced this isn't an American/European problem?

    I think they are trying to politically pressure Turkey to stop hanging out with White countries.

    (I.E. - leave NATO and pledge alliance with Iran)

    It's funny. The Gul-Erdogan-Davutoglu front in Turkey made a conscious decision to distance themselves from the US and Israel (that was once a close, close ally of Turkey. I've been there several times back in good times. I suspect it will some day be like the Israelis who hung out in Iran during the days of the Shah) and get closer to the Iran-Syria-Hizbullah axis, and look what it got them - threats from Syria for harboring Syrian refugees and threats from Iran to not interfere with Syria and to bomb NATO facilities on its soil. How's that Islamist friendship working out for you, assholes?

    Yeah, it is. It's also pretty representative of what would happen to Iran if they tried that shit.

    I doubt a lot of Erdogan supporters care about that. They gave up the chance to be part of the EU by putting those shitheads in power, what's a few more threats on top of that.

    Religious zealots tend to put their religion ahead of everything, including the well being of their country. They'd probably tell you Iran is right to threaten them, for being cozy with the West.

    That may be true, but the name of the policy that Turkish front adopted was "Zero Problems With Neighbors." Oopsie.

    The whole EU thing in Turkey was a total coup. They managed to restrict the army's ability to resist Islamist takeover (it's in the Turkish constitution) by claiming to try and adhere to EU standards, while knowing that their mere existence in power lessened the likelihood of them ever being accepted to the Union.

    And Turkey isn't Saudi Arabia. Plenty of secular nationalistic Turks had to vote for them to get them to power. They have actually done wonders to the Turkish economy, but allying with Iran and Syria as an economic policy might have been good for them for a short while. However, if long term stability is what you want, you need to bet on the Western horse, as they will no doubt learn if they continue this crap.

    The shitbags who continue to downplay Iran will do so right up until the day they ignite a dirty bomb in New York Harbor. Even then they'll blame oil companies.

    Iran probably should stop the propaganda. They will be lucky if this stays conventional. If Iran can convince Irsael there will be 150,000 warheads raining down, this war is going to start with some high-altitude airbursts... I doubt their missiles or launch facilities are EMP hardened.

    Part of the sanctions involves withholding that technology.
    But they may be able to get some free Google apps smuggled in.

    Soccer mom's gotta get her kids to school and violin practice. She can't afford to fill up the Yukon at $6.00 a gallon, so damn right the oil companies will be blamed.

    Hopefully they can get Mousepaint for the Apple 2c smuggled in through their courier network. If they need to rely on Broderbund software to perform their digital manipulations, they are SOL.

    Do they have missiles that can reach the U.S.?


    Sounds pretty reasonable to me. Usually when you want to negotiate with someone, you don't punch them in the face first and then ask them nicely to please do what you want.
