Tehran, Iran, Apr. 16 – The supreme commander of Iran’s regular armed forces said the Islamic Republic was monitoring enemy positions in the region and was prepared to give a “crushing” response to any foreign attack.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s army is closely monitoring all military activities across the region and by understanding the enemies’ goals and program has the required awareness and preparedness to counter any direct or indirect threat. The army will decisively respond to even the smallest act of aggression against the sovereignty and interests of the country”, Major General Atta’ollah Salehi said in a statement read out Saturday morning at the headquarters of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

“The army will in the shortest space of time give the most crushing response to any aggressor”, Salehi said, adding that the armed forces would continue to “emblazon the torch of the struggle against global imperialism”.

Iran has a dual military system with a regular armed forces as well as the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). Both report directly to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

I seem to recall another leader of a middle eastern country who invited us to "The Mother of All Battles".

He got a MOAB that he did not expect (both times).

I can't quite put my finger on it, but this system seems to have been copied from some other dude who called himself 'Leader'... I forgot his name...

My biggest concern is that they may launch a missile attack on our guys in Iraq. IF they were to hit the "green zone", it would be a devastating blow to our troops.

If Iraq is any indication of how this will go, it'll be several years before any sort of military action is initiated. These guys will just get themselves frustrated trying to egg us on into starting something earlier.

If it does come down to military action down the road, these guys will be so used to the status quo that they'll be off guard.

There is a reason that the Camel is known as the ship of the desert.....it is full of Iranian Semen...which is of course their first line of defense.. Truth be known their bluster has painted themselves in a corner...it sure would be interesting to be a fly on the wall in Tehran listening to their so called leadership.....as they bull ship in their strategy sessions....all knowing their feces is really weak.... It would be my guess that a massive bombing campaign, not that it wouldn't work, may be on back burner....remember we have lot's or Iraqi's that understand payback time.....sit tight and watch your lowest approval in history President engineer this crisis...yee of so little faith!!

That would be "Maximum Leader" General Manuel "Pineapple" Noreiga. No, sorry, it's "Dear Leader" Kim "I'm so ronery" Jong-il. Or is it "Big Daddy" Idi Amin? Or Saddam Hussein?

I can't keep all these psychos straight!

The Weather Channel is happy to break any story that supports global warming.

General, call the WC before your phone gets fried.

We will immediately or sooner crush the infidel invaders. We will make them disappear so they will no longer be in Iran. Their tanks and planes, too!

Yea, we've already seen the Arab's idea of a "crushing response" as they run run run away.

Now to be fair in all this during the Iraq/Iran war they die in the thousands making human wave attacks against the forces of Iraq.

The Revolutionary Forces of Iran can get a bit worked up but we have much better fire control then the Iraq forces ever had.

The Baath party was set up as an explicitly Nazi-modeled party. "Iran" was renamed from "Persia" to mirror the name "Aryan" to please the Nazis.

In the Iran/Iraq war it was islamogarbage vs. islamogarbage. You're talking about a gang fight. I'm talking about war.

All Iran was really able to manage with Iraq was a standoff. We whipped the Iraqis quickly. I don't think they would last very long

Our first squadron of F22s are available and would guarantee air dominance almost immediately. They can also fly through Iraqi air defenses at will (more stealth than F117). The B2 won't be stopped by their air defenses.
From the air we can control them at will.

We have forces to their east, to their west and our Navy is to their south. Again, we control the chess board.

I suspect that if we attack, it will not be an invasion, but it also is not likely to be limited to nuclear capability. I suspect any attack will result in destruction of their missile sites, air force bases, runways, naval facilities and ships, etc. In other words we won't let them retalitate by striking ships in the Gulf of Hormuz.

I'm confused.
If they just have nuclear capability for POWER, not for WEAPONS, what are they going to 'annihilate' anyone with?
In one mouth-foaming speech, they just want nuclear energy.
In the next they're threatening to strike with means they don't have?
OY. We don't want to kill him- we just want to make him kosher!lol

"OY. We don't want to kill him- we just want to make him kosher!lol"

Who? The Iranian General? ...vaporize him, then remove his molecules from the air? That would only clean the space that he occupies. I am a person of the nations (AFAIK so far), but even I know that he could not be made kosher. So there you have a Noachide decree. [Little humor there!]

You said something about "run away".

I didn't say how well they would do it, just that they have the capacity to die moving forward in great numbers.

Islamic nations could field good armies except that their dictators require obedience and loyalty in their generals and senior leaders, not ability.

The modern battlefield is high tec, complex and fast. Our military forces rule in all three. But we must not sit on our backside as somebody, China, just might pass us by.
