350 Tomahawks are ready to start: a dangerous alignment around Iran


The Pentagon is pulling its naval forces to the Iranian shores, transferring an aircraft carrier group, two submarines, as well as destroyers and cruisers armed with 240 Tomahawk cruise missiles to the Persian Gulf. The Iranians say that they are ready to repel any aggression of the enemy.


The American nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN-68) entered the Arabian Sea, accompanied by three destroyers carrying at least 90 cruise missiles. In addition, the atomic submarine USS Georgia with 154 Tomahawks and the cruisers USS Port Royal (CG-73) and USS Philippine Sea (CG-58) with more than a hundred such missiles are located in the Persian Gulf. An Israeli submarine passing the Suez Canal is also moving in the direction of the Persian Gulf.

The IDF has not officially confirmed the report on Israel's submarine, but Chief of General Staff Aviv Kohavi expressed fears of "growing threats" from Tehran and its Syrian and Palestinian radical partners, as well as the Lebanese group Hezbola.

We are ready to defend ourselves, our friends and partners in the region, we are ready to respond if required

- stressed Kohavi.

In Iran, such actions of an Israeli submarine are considered an aggressive act, but they say that it will become a good target for Iranian defenses. Tehran fears an exacerbation of the situation by the United States in connection with the imminent resignation of Donald Trump from the presidency. According to a number of high-ranking American military personnel, the military operation can be both open and covert, as happened on January 3, 2020 during the destruction of the head of the IRGC corps Qasem Soleimani by a missile strike near the Baghdad airport.

According to Al Qabas, the Iranians are rapidly deploying air defense systems made by Russia and Iran around their nuclear facilities in Fordow and Natanz, fearing surprise attacks by the United States and its allies.

Unmanned aerial vehicles and short-range missiles are being deployed in southern Iraq to the places of concentration of pro-Iranian armed groups.

A new escalation of the conflict in the region was provoked by the assassination of Iranian physicist and nuclear weapons developer Mohsen Fahridzadeh - Tehran accused Israel's special services of eliminating him. A month later, Iran attacked the American embassy in Baghdad.

      Why not. One task is enough.
      I mean the serious destabilization of the situation in the region.
      No matter how much you hope for the United States and your toughness, and no matter how you think that Iran will not dare to give an effective response, there will be an answer.
      US actions will simply leave Iran no choice. The Iranian leadership simply will not understand its own people, you can immediately resign, but they will get it there too. Therefore, there will be a return flow.
      If you pay attention, Iran has already introduced short- and medium-range missiles and drones to Iraq. Preparing to multiply the US base by zero. Well, the United States may break off the Arab allies, depending on how they behave. And Israel is the same.

    350 Tomahawks even Russia will not master. They won't have time to recharge. Unless, of course, they hit the carriers. And the United States and Israel will first destroy the economy. They will act as with Iraq.

    Destabilization is not included in the US plans, it should also be for something, and not an end in itself.
    To eliminate nuclear facilities, strike aircraft and anti-bunker bombs are needed, in this case 350 tomahawks make sense to partially suppress air defense systems, but then, to suppress the opposition, air defense ships and 2-3 AUG are needed with the subsequent increase in quantitative parameters. So far, we do not see any prospects for building up to such an impressive size.
    Everything looks like pressure.
    In the event of a serious escalation of hostilities, the collective west will be drawn into the conflict, and this is the defeat of Iran to the level of Iraq.

    And the collective East will take the side of Iran: the Russian Federation, China, Pakistan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Afghan and so on.

    The situation may turn out to be not in favor of Iran, I agree, at the first stage of the conflict, if such a conflict does break out, it will most likely fight off, given the Russian new and not too new weapons. We must not forget that Iran is a mountainous country, and all or almost all military-industrial complex plants are located in mountainous areas, and let's remember Afghanistan, because they are still fighting. The Russian factor, we, ordinary citizens, cannot know about all the agreements of our top leadership and the leadership of Iran. And if, nevertheless, the states go on this adventure, one should not forget Israel, because in the current situation it is the most interested participant in the escalation, anything can happen, provocation is not excluded. Getting involved in the conflict, this time the United States will face in a ground operation, and in the fact that it will follow after losses in aviation, the Iranian troops will retreat to the mountains, and there may be a confrontation with Russia. And Israel, not accustomed to fighting on foreign territory, so far from the metropolis, when the coffins go home en masse, will most likely withdraw from the ground operation. And how it will end, no one knows, let's wait, there is not so much time left!

    Russia will not miss the chance to plant the States in the Eastern trap. Neither Russia nor China will stand aside. These countries will hardly miss the chance to "put" America down by an order of magnitude. A new world order awaits us if the States rock the boat against Iran. The consequences for Israel are generally unpredictable.
