I don't see why we wouldn't defend Iceland. It's hardly out of our way.

Maybe I'm wrong but I think that Iceland is entirely protected by the US military, it doesn't have any armed forces (at least that how it used to be) so an attack on Icelan would be a direct assult on the USA and when did they ever avoid a fight

Yes it would, and who and why would anyone attack Iceland.

Iceland's Armed Forces are minimal but they do exist.

Yes, the US as well as the rest of NATO would come to Iceland's aid! This would be an Article 5 situation and the rest of the alliance would be obliged to fight the aggressor.

When does the US not aid other countries in need? Of course we'll help Iceland defend itself.

I am sure we would, we would probably use nukes and turn it into Waterland.

Topic: Iceland

Iceland is a key strategic point in the North Atlantic. Any one who has read Clancy, Red Storm Rising will see its importance. Not only is it a break pint in the Greenland/UK Gap, he who controls Iceland controls the North Atlantic by long range bombing. Any convoy would have to cross from the East Coast to the UK and France and as we see in Red Storm Rising the carnage on Merchant Men, Escorts and Carriers is abundant. Therefore the USMC would have to make an assault to retake the island, but the SBS boys would already be there doing your groundwork for you!!
