The US Cannot Win a War with Iran

Iran’s nuclear weapons program must be stopped. There can be no question about this. And, neutralizing Iran’s nuclear capacity will lead to war.

Unfortunately, the mountains of Iran make an invasion impossible. In fact, Iran has never been conquered except when she was weak, and right now… she is NOT weak. Hopefully, the US military understands this.

The question is… what will Donald Trump and America’s allies do?

No one can be completely sure, but you can bet that some attempt will be made to fight a limited conflict. However, it’s doubtful that this conflict will STAY limited. And, the resulting cataclysm will be straight out of prophecy.

Only a fool wants war.

And, the only reason why you would desire to fight one, is if the alternative was worse.

Britain and France had an entirely reasonable aversion to fighting a war with Nazi Germany, but they did not understand the alternative. So, they practiced appeasement even while Hitler invaded Austria and Czechoslovakia. Then he invaded Poland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and then France. By the time that the fools in charge of Britain and France understood the real alternative to war, millions were dead and dying and the jackboot of tyranny was firmly on the neck of the survivors. Britain and France KNEW what Hitler intended to do, but they thought that he was like they were and could be reasoned with.

From our perspective, it is easy to see how wrong the world was to placate Hitler. Instead of appeasement, he and his henchmen should have been assassinated. But, if you were living during that time, you might not have been so sure.

Iran Is The New Nazi Germany

Well, we are yet again living in another moment in time where we face an enemy which is seeking the means to drown the world in blood. And, for those who have not seen my proof of the truth of that, let me point you to my previous articles and videos on the topic:

Iran is Completely Insane

Iran is Completely Insane – The Details Confirm It

Iran Must be Stopped

If you can get through all of that and not see the need to eliminate Iran’s nuclear program, you are a fool – the same kind of fool as Neville Chamberlain who sought to appease Hitler. Now is not the time to be fools, but the stupid and foolish will always try to have their say – as I have been witnessing, recently.

The Appeasement Of Iran

So, what will the wise try to do about this attempt by Iran to become a nuclear power?

Unfortunately, there don’t seem to be very many wise people around, to ask this question to. Much of Europe seems intent on doing precisely nothing, and America is… well …I’m not sure what America is doing. It seems that too many people are intent on repeating the mistakes of 81 years ago.

What happened 81 years ago?

The Munich Agreement that gave Hitler the right to dismember Czechoslovakia

It was just like the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) that gave Iran the right to keep machinery for producing nuclear weapons as long as the Iranians promise to wait before making any nukes. And, the Neville Chamberlain morons of the West gave Iran billions upon billions of dollars that have enabled them to arm Hezbollah and Hamas, solidify Iran’s grasp of Iraq and Syria and build a bigger and stronger military.

But, don’t take my word for it, listen to Dennis Prager tell it better than I ever could:

The Iran Nuclear Deal

Watch that whole thing. This video from four years ago is only five and a half minutes long, and it lays out the parallels between Iran and Nazi Germany better than any other video that I’ve seen. And, for those watching via YouTube, the link will be below and at the end of this video.

This malign insanity of Barack Obama and Europe has laid the foundation for a horrendous war that the West cannot win.

Why would the West be unable to win a war with Iran?

Mountains – lots and LOTS of mountains – and that strong military paid for by the billions given to Iran by Obama and the World.

In terms of her ability to defend herself, Iran is the Switzerland of the Middle East. High mountains lie along the borders of Iran, making it impossible for any army to conquer Iran – as long as she has sufficient personnel and weaponry to man her defenses. And, Iran DOES have sufficient manpower and weapons to defend against invasion while projecting power into the rest of the Middle East – courtesy of the JCPOA.

One more thing that we have to thank Barack Obama for.

Old Strategies Won’t Work

The other reason why the United States and her allies cannot win a war with Iran is because of how ‘modern’ armies fight. They depend on aerial superiority, mechanized infantry, fast tanks and flat terrain to win wars. This was the strategy for confronting the Soviet Union. It was the strategy for the first and second wars with Iraq.

This strategy was a complete failure in Vietnam.

The US will suffer a similar failure, should she use this strategy when confronting Iran. Iran is easily defended, with mountainous terrain that will spell defeat for any sizable invasion of Iran. The average Iranian would defend every nook and cranny along treacherous mountain passes. Whatever misgivings Iranians have towards their government will be forgotten in the face of the ‘common enemy’. And, the countryside of Iran is where the Mullahs have their greatest support.

And, the morons running the US military do not understand this.

When America’s armed forces staged the largest military exercise in history, called Millennium Challenge 2002, they were simulating the invasion of Iran. And, they demonstrated why the US is doomed to lose a ground war against Iran. The following video shows it best, and it focuses on the general picked to be the OPFOR commander of the Iranian side of this simulation. That man was retired Marine Lt. Gen. Paul Van Riper. And, he used Iranian tactics to decisively defeat American forces in just ten minutes.

Here’s the video that described what he did:

A Marine general led a fictional Iran against US military – and won

Unfortunately, this video proves that America’s military doesn’t learn and is doomed to be defeated in any ground war with Iran.

Like I said… Morons.

But, back to WHY Iran is such a tough nut to crack…

The Example Of The Iran-Iraq War

The Iran-Iraq war of 1980 to 1988 is an example of why Iran is so hard to defeat. Even though the Iranian military before that war had been decimated by purges and was poorly led… Even though Iran’s military was demoralized and lacked vital spare parts… Even though there seemed to be no way that Iraq could lose a war with Iran…

…Iran still won.

Iraq thought that it could capture the Iranian side of the Shatt al-Arab and grab all the flat area up to the foothills of the Zagros Mountains. Saddam Hussein failed and failed badly. Not only did he fail to gain ANY additional land area, but he spent billions on the war, slaughtered hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians and earned the eternal enmity of the Iranian regime.

Saddam was a fool and proved it by also invading Kuwait in 1990.

What a moron.

Only Alexander the Great, the Rashidun Caliphate and the Mongols ever successfully invaded the heartland of Persia. And, they only did so when Persia (Iran) was weak and divided. Alexander was able to defeat the Persians using superior strategy and technology, in Turkey and Mesopotamia, before moving across the Zagros mountains. The Rashidun Caliphate faced a Persia weakened by wars with the Byzantine Empire. And, the Mongols faced a divided and weak Khwarezmian ’empire’.

Basically, the Persians (Iran) were only defeated when they were in decline and had defeated themselves. And, right now, they aren’t. Not even a little, as Saddam Hussein found out, to his cost. And, it would probably be wise to leave them alone, but we can’t.

They want nukes, and that would be a horrifyingly bad idea for the West.

What Will The West Do?

So, if a land invasion of Iran is out, what option does the West have?

The best that America and her allies can do is a limited strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, followed by years of brutal conflict along the shores of the Persian Gulf. Destroying Iran’s nuclear infrastructure would require the destruction of all air defenses around the these nuclear targets, followed by an aerial bombardment of the nuclear targets themselves. Then the US and her allies would need to seize all nuclear facilities that survived the bombardment, using airborne infantry to infiltrate the area and ensure the destruction of all nuclear centrifuges that remained operational. Once the operation was over, we would all need to sit back and hope that we would survive the wave after wave of assaults from the Iranian military and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The Persian Gulf would become one vast oil slick, as tanker after tanker is sunk by Iranian missiles, rockets and gun boats. The US would need to blast anything and everything that moved, along the entire shoreline of Iran. And they would need to do that for years.

The US Fifth Fleet, in the Persian Gulf would need to shoot down everything in the air and destroy all boat docks and missile launching sites along the Iranian coast. All Iranian boats of any kind – military or civilian – would need to be sunk. Special Forces units would need to constantly operate up and down the Iranian coast, searching for ammunition dumps, rocket launchers and guided missile depots.

In the meantime, Iran would unleash Hezbollah, who would try launch up to a 150,000 rockets and missiles into northern Israel. Israel would try to destroy launch sites, before those rockets and missiles were fired. But, Israel will probably be less than successful. Israel will be badly, badly damaged in the barrage.

For Israel to survive these waves of missiles, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) would need good intelligence describing exactly where Hezbollah missile and rocket launchers were positioned, so that they could be destroyed. Israel might even need to invade southern Lebanon and southwestern Syria to destroy any Hezbollah and IRGC units operating within range of Israel.

If everything worked perfectly, the United States, Israel and any allies involved might survive with only a few singed feathers.

Those of you looking for a more visual and somewhat more optimistic analysis, the following video is pretty good:

What a war with Iran could look like

Shirvan, the one doing the research, analysis and narration for this video, makes one error in his calculations, and it is a significant one:

He does not include Twelver Shiism and their fanatic desire to wash the world in blood to bring back the 12th Imam, the Imam Mahdi.

That is why I believe that the above analysis – while good – is somewhat optimistic. But, even his analysis spells doom for America and the global system as it stands now.

This war will collapse the global financial system, paralyze vast swaths of global trade, destroy energy delivery systems and catastrophically deplete America’s ability to project power around the world. The current system, as we know it will burn to the ground and will need to be rebuilt from its ashes. And, that’s assuming Iran does not launch an EMP strike upon the United States.

If God were on America’s side, then maybe we could expect a better outcome. But, God is NOT on America’s side and hasn’t been for quite some time. So, America should expect the very worst result.

For those of you who are Christian – and I hope that all of you are – there is a silver lining to all of this. And, you can find it in the fulfillment of prophecy, which is the core reason for why I am talking about all of this.

This coming war will set the stage for the fulfillment of the prophecies found in Isaiah 17, Isaiah 30, Ezekiel 36-39, Zechariah 12 & 13, and the other passages in the Bible that speak of Ezekiel’s Fire and the events that will lay the groundwork for the final end of these Last Days.

Yes, the Great Tribulation is coming, and these events WILL help lay the path for its coming. But, there is much that must happen before we see it arrive. This is barely even the beginning of those precursor events, and it’s what I want to talk about next – Lord Willing.


I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.Proverbs 22:3
