This will be the catylist to remove all foreigners from Iran before the sky lights up with the white flash.

Isn't that what happened prior to Desert Storm? Embassies closed their doors, removed their diplomats from Iraq, and expelled Iraq diplomats from host countries just before the first invasion.

....As much as I try to ignore that the closing of an embassy means the strong possibity of an armed engagement,I can't help but remember that a few countries were struck under these same conditions,we can only hope that everyone is just posturing, (who hell am i kidding,their probably marking the targets and tweaking the drones right now)its going to be one helluva holiday season.

First of all they should take british diplomats from Iran, if Iranian people wish it.

Military tactical history follows the same procedure each time.
If it works,why change it ?

The yanks have got a machine that can stop the electronics of any engine working correctly so all they have to do is sit back and watch Iranian rockets return to earth and explode on Iranian soil.
This same device is used to measure any seismic activity on the planet from weapons testing either above or below ground.

Interesting! a year ago i took a look at a similar gadget for investment reasons,it was being developed for law enforcement to stop vehicles,i was told the tech was a trickle down from advanced versions being developed by the military,imagine that when you launch,its actually against yourself!...what a crazy world we live in.

Same can be said of tracking, eavesdropping, NVG, GPS, and other technology that developed with the military. Pretty much anything developed by the space and military agencies eventually finds it way in to the hands to the general consumer.

There was a story on one in a magazine years ago.
It is big shed parked in no mans land scanning the planet.
If you drove a vehicle in front of it,the engine plays up and can die altogether
