We have three carrier battle groups in striking distance of Iran. Why aren’t the Iranians scared? Didn’t they see what we did to Saddam Hussein? They should be surrendering all of their nuclear weapons stuff and begging us for mercy. Why are they still so belligerent?
Here are some suggested answers:
(1) They don’t take the threat seriously, because Obama is a big wuss and they figure the U.S. is tired of wars after Iraq.
(2) They think they can hold their own in a military confrontation, because they have a huge stockpile of missiles to use against our planes and ships.
(3) They don’t care about losing a war because they believe the war will cause the Twelfth Imam to appear, and if they die in the war they go directly to Paradise.
