What if Iran attacks the US?

For a country to attack another country, a stockpile of offensive weaponry is required. In the case of Iran attacking the US, Iran would require several aircraft carriers, very long-range ballistic missiles and MIRV. They would also require dozens of nuclear-powered submarines that could sneak up to the US shores undetected. A certain number of strategic stealth bombers, air refueling tankers and a well-defended Island in Iranian possession would also be necessary. A large number of marine forces with massive airdrop capacity would also be required. Considering the fact that Iran (or any other nation in the world other than the US) has any such strategic assets, an offensive war is an impossibility. Iran is absolutely incapable of launching ANY direct attack against the US other than posing short term risk to the carriers that are in the range of Iranian missiles. Iran can presently only cause considerable damage to the US and/or US allies in the region (which includes Israel, Iraq and Saudi Arabia) with ballistic missiles.

In recent history, Japan possessed a certain quantity of strategic assets to be in a position to bomb the US at Pearl Harbor only once, but they never possessed the volume, quality, and quantity of firepower to bomb the US mainland or disrupt the American industrial base. Short of a surprise nuclear first strike by Russia, no other country has been in a position to launch an attack on the US mainland for almost two centuries. That makes the US the safest country on earth!

It would bee the most terrifying 7 minutes of the remainder of Iran’s life.

The United States is ranked #1 in Global firepower ( followed by Russia, China and India ) Iran is 13th on the list.
Total Aircraft: Iran has 505 the US has 13, 362
Total Combat Tanks: Iran: 1,650 The USA: 5,884
Total Armored Fighting Vehicles: Iran: 2,215 The USA: 38,822
Total Aircraft carriers: Iran has Zero US has 30
Total Destroyers: Iran has Zero The US has 65
Total Submarines: Iran has 33, the US has: 62
Total Manpower: Iran has 47 million, USA has 145.2 million

Iran is a legend in their own minds, they talked tough and acted tough as long as we had a President who was willing to tie our soldiers hands. They would quickly find that is no longer the case if they were to make the mistake of attacking the US mainland.
