Those reports are mostly BS. Propaganda to fool the naive. Nobody, but nobody will willingly take yuan in exchange for dollars. Where there IS any commerce in yuan, it's for political reasons, or because they are forced into it by China. The Chinese banking system is much too corrupt, and too unstable, to put any trust whatsoever in their currency.

William Ashley will be along shortly to tell you that you are absolutely incorrect and offer as evidence a bunch of totally unrelated links hacked together in an incoherent fashion as his *proof*.

Keyboard commandos, mostly. We have wiser heads in our military, and thankfully Trump is President. Hillary was/is too chummy with people like Sid Blumenthal, who had himself lined up to make millions off what turned into the fiasco in Libya.

No, not because they shot down some of our spy equipment. Did the title of this thread NOT give you another possible idea of the bellicosity?

Read a similar article. Had that happened chances are good the latest sanctions would have been a moot point.

The P8A is one of our customer platforms at work. Everyone at work would have been quite mad. Smart move on Iran's part...

They have a lot of prototypes that they at least claim are super awesome cool. But they're not in production and no one knows what parts of the claims are actually true or not.

If hostilities break out, I don't think Iranian aircraft will be flying outside their borders, otherwise they will be shot down.

I think this will be a missile war, at least at the start. Iran reportedly has some very good anti-aircraft tech. The S-300's are reportedly upgraded to S-400's in every way but the name. It'll be interesting to see how well they work against our stealth tech.

They will be shot down within their borders.

I think some of the hype regarding Iranian aircraft capability is just that; hype.

And a British warship intervened.

Those speedboats look like a 1-second burst of 20 mike-mike would shatter them completely.

The Brits were merciful.

They had a 115mm (25rpm AA rounds) and 2x 30mm pointed at them. They would have been absolutely shredded. The escort they ran into was a perfect match for those boats.

Not I. I haven't been rotating my farm tank like I should - it's time to burn some of it.
