Re: Iran's Revolutionary Guard captured a foreign tanker

RUMINT that LR Poseidon & Star Osprey have also been "diverted," potentially hijacked. Need confirmation ASAP.

Re: DRPK june 2019

President Trump has established a working dialogue with the leader of a country which is a potential threat to the security of the US. Yes, he's probably being played, but you have to start somewhere. Remember "Only Nixon could go to China?" Well, "Only Trump could go to North Korea."

Re: June 23 Iran US tension

In your opinion, how long does it take for Iran to produce atomic weapons? For Iran to produce one on their own, probably about a year or so, from what I can gather. But don't be surprised if they have a few on hand already from the Russians. Plus, there's evidence that they've been working alongsi...

Re: June 23 Iran US tension

USS BOXER and the 11th MEU steamed into the 5th fleet to join them incase Iran wants to play. I am starting to think the whole i was going to strike but didn't is all a lie and we are seeing a slow build up to hit them back at a time of our choosing or immediately after they do something again. Our...

Fourth tremor in this same area since Saturday. I got a feeling something much bigger is about to happen here. https://t.co/6ZUuYPxQ3Q
That is nowhere near their nuclear testing site, and is way too close to the capitol to be a new site.

Re: Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) system program holds informative town meeting

Are we upgrading our icbm triad leg? Is this in reaction to Russia’s recently unveiled ICBM system? We are. It's part of the new nuclear arms race. But as far as I'm concerned, silo-based missiles are obsolete and should be stood down. All they provide is a huge stationary target across much of the...

Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

Re: June 20 . Situation development after between US and Iran

Common consensus on why the strikes were called off seems to be focused on three possibilities: 1: The mission was only to get defensive radars lit up 2: They wanted to issue a NOTAM before hostilities broke out (which has been done) 3: They wanted to wait until the markets close this afternoon I p...
