Let the war games begin…

Less than a week after the re-election of Barack Obama, Iran launched its largest-ever air drills today across 850,000 square kilometers.
Reuters reported:

Iran launched military drills across half the country on Monday, warning it would act against aggressors less than a week after Washington accused Iranian warplanes of firing on a U.S. drone.

The maneuvers will take place this week across 850,000 square kilometers (330,000 square miles) of Iran’s northeast, east, and southeast regions, Iranian media reported.

Some 8,000 elite and regular army troops will participate, backed by bombers and fighter planes, while missile, artillery and surveillance systems will be tested, various media said.

Played out against a backdrop of high tension between the United States and Iran over Tehran’s nuclear program, the ‘Velayat-4′ maneuvers will involve the biggest air drills the country has ever held, Iran’s English-language Press TV reported.

“These drills convey a message of peace and security to regional countries,” Shahrokh Shahram, the spokesman for the exercises, told the broadcaster on Monday. “At the same time they send out a strong warning to those threatening Iran.”

  1. I am not concerned!

    I have my mountain bunker with lots of booze, weed and food. I could survive for three years! How about you?

  2. Obama now has more flexibility to enable Iranian aggression.

  3. Obama will go down in history as the man who could have done something to avert WW III but didn’t.

  4. Obama not only refuses to do anything to prevent WW3, he’s preventing America from cushioning itself from it’s affects. America would come out on top in any big war if we had energy independence from our own oil production. Obama is preventing that purposefully.

  5. No Jar Jar Binks. This is for real!! Hey, is that Waldo?

  6. Hey, Mr. Preezy, “Less Than a Week After US Election… Iran Launches Largest-Ever Air Drills.” What are you going to do?
    “I’m going on an extensive SE Asia vay-cay. See ya when I get back.” ;-)

  7. This drill serves the same function as a male gorilla beating its chest, and is just about as effective.
    If the Iranians can’t even shoot down a drone… well.
