And some people seem to think that Iran is capable of preventing the U.S. from striking Iran a death blow. Would we lose some very expensive fighters or worse, American pilots? Yes. But could Iran actually stop us from destroying their capabilities? No. And then 'they got nothin'.People think it would be simple for the Israelis to stop Iran from getting a nuke.
The Iranians arent stupid. Their facilities will be well protected, and they will see them coming.
Not to mention that Iran could do some damage to Israel in return.
Some of y’all think the world is a video game where there is no price for war.
Neither side wants the challenge at this point, but there is zero question which side pays an unpleasant cost (even one U.S. fighter shot down by Iran is not something any sane American "wants") and which side gets hammered into oblivion. Iran does not want its entire air capability destroyed, which we can do if we choose to.
