#1 No sweat, this is just what the F-14 was designed to counter. So all we gotta do is invade Iran and steal some.

#2 Those 'Kitchen' missles have been a pretty serious threat for some time now.
As to F-14 availability, we should just go out to Davis-Mothan and de-cocoon a bun.....what? you mean we cut them all up to keep parts out of Iran's hands? Might as well destroy all the SR-71 tooling too while you're at it......

#5 Lawn Darts don't have the weapons range.
Sure they do; just send the KA- 6 Tankers with them. Oh wait, another fine decision to kill carrier based refueling assets......

#6 You're talking flight range.

I'm talking long-range weapons. Air-to-air missiles.
