#5 Gonna' be interesting to see if/when/how Iran blinks. And how Putin reacts, although he knows war could be destabilizing to his personal wealth. Can his ego and self-interest withstand his "Hawks?"

#6 In response, Iran is duct taping radial engines onto its plywood copy of the F-5. They'll be able to wipe out our air power with it in a lazy afternoon after their single magical missile sinks our entire naval force.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
