gopher321: Somebody still uses battleships?
ArkAngel: So what will the name of the next war be?Desert ________ ?
wantingout: the_chief: Mohammed was Jewish.and jesus was a roman. what's your point?
TomFooolery: Apparently any warship that's not a carrier is considered a battleship now. From TFA: 12 battleships, including ballistic missile cruisers, frigates, destroyers and assault ships

JerkyMeat: Because sucking israeli dick is what the U.S. does best.
Ehh: vygramul: And WTF is a "ballistic missile cruiser"?Ask your mom?/Sorry, nothin' personal, this is Fark, etc.
Amos Quito: It's not that I don't like you, Whidbey, I just think your pseudo-religious political devotion has you perpetually befuddled, is all.
tzzhc4: yelmrog: Why don't we take all the Jews out of Israel and relocate them to Florida with the rest? Totally seems like a win-win. I mean, we put them back there (the middle east) in the first place, we can take'em back out, right?Look up what the Zionists are. Basically there is a large portion of the US population that thinks the Jews have to occupy Israel in order for Jesus to return. This is why some many in the GOP freak out when politicians don't support Israel as they see it being tantamount to not supporting Jesus.
intelligent comment below: nekulor: Modern Zionism is like dominionism for Jews. It's thankfully more specific and limited to one very small region of the planet, but it still sucks.Feel free to link me to a citation showing it's "like" it in any way.
Kittypie070: Mutilated Baby Penis would be an atrocious name for a band and I would throw Molotov cocktails at their concerts.
FlippityFlap: "Freschel2012-09-16 01:50:06 AMIt's been over 200 comments and still no Tatsume."I think he got evicted last week.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: vygramul: Just Another OC Homeless Guy: vygramul: And WTF is a "ballistic missile cruiser"?Google is your friendGoogle doesn't seem to think such a thing exists either.You know, I gotta say you're right. There are guided missile cruisers, and ballistic-missile-defense cruisers, but AFAIK no ballistic missile cruiser.Good catch.
Science_Guy_3.14159: Rumored to be the flagship of the US/British Armada
vygramul: Our competitors are also not bogiemen hiding in our closets with supernatural forces
J. Frank Parnell: vygramul: Russia ain't got squat. Heck, it turns out they were pretty much a paper tiger since about the mid-'60s. China is not going to be projecting power anytime soon. Not to Iran they're not. 20 years from now, anything could happen. But not today.Active military of Russia, China, and North Korea combined: 4,418,000Active military of America and Israel: 1,634,719I wouldn't take that chance.
vygramul: J. Frank Parnell: vygramul: Unless you're suggesting nukes, there's very little Russia or China could do to lend any kind of support. Russia's military is poorly trained these days and China has no power projection capability worth mentioning.I guarantee Russia has some cards up its sleeve, and China has the largest military in the world. They're just one secret project away from having power projection. Oh, and of course North Korea would jump on board, and you'd have them too. The US would be foolish to think they know exactly what all their capabilities are. Any decision to attack would be foolhardy.Russia ain't got squat. Heck, it turns out they were pretty much a paper tiger since about the mid-'60s. China is not going to be projecting power anytime soon. Not to Iran they're not. 20 years from now, anything could happen. But not today.And just what is NK going to do, exactly? Start rolling out artillery from their bomb-proof caves to start setting up to shell Seoul? Not bloody likely.
The WH and the Democrats will cheer, and Teheran will vanish in a final Israeli strike. The US will do shiat.
whidbey: intelligent comment below: Israel is a theocracy?It sure isn't a democracy.
tenpoundsofcheese: blacksharpiemarker: mediablitz: fark you Israel. You don't get to dictate to the world.They already do.well when our President is either campaigning or golfing, someone has to show leadership.

Kittypie070: tinfoil-hat maggie 2012-09-15 11:27:21 PMOh, come on can't we just have a small nuclear war :(/Why do I never get any fun.Might I suggest an initial strike of one max-yield neutron weapon detonated directly over the Dome of the Rock, with additional strikes over what's left of Jerusalem 20 seconds later?Lights out very fast that way for those poor damned sods. :'(
meyerkev: jtown: talkertopc: I read it as "An armada of US and British naval power is missing in the Persian Gulf" the first time. I just finished reading the Axis of Time trilogy so that might explain it.I thought the same thing and I have no idea what the Axis of Time trilogy is so that may not explain it.Short version:In an alternate 2021, a UN carrier group goes missing off Indonesia, and pops up in 1942 just prior to the Battle of Midway, and accidentally wipes out the US Pacific fleet upon arrival. Some scatter also hands Hitler, Yamamoto, and Stalin bits and pieces of "uptime" technology. Mostly deals with culture differences (racism), implications of limited tech transfer, and what happens when (among other things) Stalin gets advance word of the Cold War in 1942, when he can actually do something about it./Also, it was written not too long after 9/11, so there are references to the whole "War against Islam" thing getting really, really nasty.

omgwtfetc: It's disgraceful that your first reaction after implying you slept with someone's mom is to apologize. You commie pinko unamerican basta
atomicmask: mediablitz: atomicmask: what I hope it is- A massive coop strike by 25 nations to hit every islamic nation rioting or attacking embassies over the past 3 days.You are farking nuts.Nah, just aware of the world wide situation and not kidding myself anymore. Lets get it over with, one last great crusade against islam, while we still have a penny to spend in the fight and the means to take the fight to them.
tinfoil-hat maggie: Oh, come on can't we just have a small nuclear war :(
davidphogan: mediablitz: Don't tell infowars though. They want you rubes to keep believing (and paying).How else can they keep selling 2012?
Brontes: Aren't battleships cruise missile boats now? Isn't how we used ours in Gulf War 1?
gopher321: Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.Somebody still uses battleships?
Hollie Maea: Farking Israel knows that it's not possible to win an election in this country if you don't back up any bullshiat they feel like pulling. It would ALMOST be worth Obama losing the election to let those farkers twist in the wind...if it weren't for the fact that 2 months later when Romney was sworn in he'd just enter us into the war then. This war will suck for us, and it's bullshiat that we have to follow those assholes into it./Worst. "Ally". Ever.
