    If our misguided friends in Iran do manufacture a nuclear weapon would they use it?

    If they were dumb enough to use on Israel, Tehran and other major cities in Iran would be vaporized.

    If they were dumb enough to use on the US, major Iranian cities would be destroyed, probably using conventional weapons.

    What says you?

    Yes, I think that they are both crazy enough and stupid enough to use it if they build it.
    I don't even think they care about what retaliation is dealt to them.

    Not a chance, they do a lot of saber rattling, they aren’t suicidal.

    Let them try... we finally have a president with balls. Iranians will get russia and china on board, and then all 3 will launch nukes at us. They know we will smoke them, and they know nobody will win, and they`ve got nothing to lose. They dont give a rats ass about their people, so getting nuked wont bother them one bit. Nobody wins.

    What will really happen is, they will continue to terrorize all over the world. Funded by the democrats.

    Not if the Israelis find out about it. And they will. Not much choice on their part.

    They will absolutely nuke Israel if given the opportunity. Maybe not the instant they get the bomb. . . but something will make them decide "now is the time."

    They would like to nuke the U.S. but won't have a delivery system that will work.

    If they were crazy enough to do it, it would be either Israel or the U.S. they would attack. Israel has multiple nuclear missiles ready to launch. The U.S. has hundreds ready to go, not counting the subs. The retaliation would be devastating to Iran. They know this. They're not suicidal.

    It would do everyone some good to look into the end of times prophesy of the twelvers. They are the mullahs.

    Christians believe they need to be spiritually prepared for Armageddon.

    Shia twelvers believe they are destined to light the fuse on Armageddon.

    They expect 2/3 of their own population to be killed in the fight. Then the 12th Imam shows up and they never lose a battle again.


    Yes, they will use one. On Israel first. That’s how their end of times prophesy begins.

    Tens of thousands of suicide bombers would disagree.

    These are not rational people.

    Perhaps as a final suicidal gesture, doubtful as a first strike.
    The bomb is a regime-change insurance policy

    They would,I see one of two possibilities ,
    1. try to get it into a US city, DC or a place like NY harbor and detonate on a Cargo ship
    2. suicide mission into Israel.

    The only irrational ones are the brainless hoards who follow these radicals. They don't have a life, and for the most part, have no brains. They just do as their told. But the leaders are no fools. They don't believe there are 72 virgins waiting for them in the after-life. They're cowards. Baghdadi died like a dog in a cave, his "caliphate" a distant memory. Bin Laden spent his last days in a hideout surfing the web for kiddy porn.

    There will be no Iranian military leaders visiting the Baghdad Airport anytime soon. And the ayatollahs will not risk getting killed or overthrown. We could wipe out their economy in a half hour by bombing just 8 refineries and the Port of Kharg, which exports 90% of their oil and gas. Iran has a population of 80 million, mostly younger people. There would be a huge uprising.

    My question to the OP is this:

    Do you believe Hillary Clinton would care if the US was bombed? AOC? Bloomberg? Any one of those communist pieces of chit could care less what happens to the American people. I doubt very seriously the elites in Iran care anymore than ours do.

    There’s just too many reasons to believe they’d ice Israel in a heartbeat if they could.

    And you can bet Israel isn’t going to elect an Islamist into their dang government, either.

    The Islamic leadership has stated over and over that they intend to destroy both Israel and the US. If they had the means, I think they would try to accomplish that goal.

    I read a series of books, August something or other, that had a nuke on a fishing boat just off of San Francisco. It went off, and although the physical damage wasn't so bad, the market damage led to the breakdown of the US. I could see Iran doing that, or maybe already having a nuke in place, something similar to that. Old school for sure, but with their thinking, time is of no issue.

    If they do, Israel it is.

    Building a nuke that will blow up is the easy part. Getting it here is harder.

    Maybe they could sneak it in by ship and blow up NYC, LA or San Francisco.

    Since they don't have a delivery system to reliably target anything at much of a distance, if they do touch one off in the area, they won't have very long to pat themselves on the back before they get hit back 100 fold.
