    One Place You Don't Want To Be...

    ...if Iran starts a war with Israel: Kharg Island at the western end of the Persian Gulf.

    It is Iran's only major oil export terminal. Saddam Husein tried to blow it up repeatedly, but his air force was too worthless.

    The Israelis will reduce it to a pile of smoldering steel wreckage.

    Their natural gas lines into Pakistan will get the same treatment.

    Feel like I know every inch of that island from a video game I used to play.

    Its not readily defensible. It does have an interesting history.

    I'd expect mines, anti shipping missiles, and possibly some of their old ass submarines to be around.

    One flight of Israeli F-16I attack planes will leave it a pile of burnt out scrap.

    Why would Iran start a war with Israel?

    They have not yet.

    Turkey needs an attitude adjustment.

    The Iranians are close to a revolution. The mullahs and Revolutionary Guard won't be able to hijack this one because they'll be strung up from street lamps.
    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    You know the deal.

    Israel does not need to be attacking Iran right now.

    There are Christians in Iran.

    Israel has no reason to attack Iran unless Iran attacks them first.

    Ask the Arabs that have crossed the Israelis. They don't get mad. They don't even get even. They get ahead - way ahead.

    Egypt and Jordan got the idea. Leave the Israelis alone. Messing with them is very unprofitable.

    But Iran's mullahs may decide they have to deflect domestic attention away from the fact that Trump's sanctions are kicking their butts, and the US is simply too big to mess with. So Israel will have to do.
