What US bases is Iran moving their "tanks" toward? There are two countries bordering Iran on the west..Turkey and Iraq, that is a long term warning.
Both happen to be sovereign countries..and of course, if iran charges across either border, American forces will have plenty of time to react.
Iraq already hates Iran, and Turkey is a NATO member nation.
Those were not tanks on those trucks, but more likely they were lightly armored fighting vehicles (similar to our Bradley).
Make no difference though..why do you suppose the USS Abraham Lincoln was carrying all those fighting planes?
All I can say is, if Iran is planning any action, they must be ready to scrap their armored forces !
Going back to the Battle of the , the Iranians should listen;
Then Col Creighton Abrams (37th tank battalion, 4th armored div) who todays Abrams tank is named for, broke through the German encirclement of Bastogne, to relieve the 101st airborne div..
Shortly after he broke through lines, word came that the German lines had closed up again...
When informed of the event Col Abrams said.."So the have us surrounded again, ...the poor Bas- - -ds"..
Iran, like Venezuela, is just a proxy for the Russians, Cubans and all other malcontent, dick-tater countries. countries.
