Iran's 'supreme leader' — Khamenei — tells country to brace for war

In the first such order, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has directed its more than 300,000 troops to prepare for a confrontation with Israel and the United States. IRGC has directed and participated in the Hizbullah war against Israel. "Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guards and Basij should prepare themselves to get even with Zionists and Americans," IRGC commander Maj. Gen. Yahya Rahim Safavi said. "The supreme leader [Ali Khamenei] will announce the time for this."

"...should prepare themselves to get even with Zionists and Americans.."

Not even bothering to build up false pretenses are they? They're going straight for the "revenge" card. Of course, all of the supposed offeses they are seeking revenge over are looney, but it doesn't matter to them.

The good news is that we don't need another "Hearts and Minds" war. "Shock and Awe" will do.

Oh great. I suppose we will begin seeing video of parading women in Burka's holding wooden AK-47's on the news now. And the regular parading goose-stepping troops are also good for a laugh.

Thry don't have the balls for the war we're in now, much less with Iran.

They'd better be careful about the whole 'getting even' gig. Israel has a bone to pick for their open support of Hezbollah. We still have a score to settle over the '79 Hostage Crisis.

To be fair, the side of the aisle that hasn't shown the fortitude hasn't actually had to fight a real war one yet. They have spent the last couple of years engaging in a politcal war more than anything else. If Iran attacks the U.S., I think everyone (excluding the ultra peacenick extremists who would rather be dhimmi slaves than ever fight in any war no matter the provocation) will show they have the fortitude to do what needs to be done.

They, like many others before will underestimate us when we're pressed. We're far from overextended with our armed forces. They'd make it a lot easier for us by picking a fight when we already have troops and logistics in place on both sides of them.

Any serious provocation will only galvanize the majority of this country, marginalize the Dem fringe peace-niks, and seal the Iranian's regime's fate.

Draw Iran's 300,000 troops into Iraq's desert and cut off all supplies to them. They'll starve to death in a matter of weeks.
It's just as true today as it was a 1000 years ago- an army moves on it's belly. Saddam also ran into that problem when he tried to invade Kwait. His retreating army ran out of supplies. The highway of death was like shooting fish in a barrel.

Sort of makes you wonder whether we went into Iraq for a stable Iraq or we went into Iraq on the premise that we will soon be marching on Iran.

Doesn't hurt that we also have a coalition of forces in Afghanistan which also borders Iran.

Is is possible that everyone overlooked this point?

Supposedly, it was the day Mohammed flew to heaven and back on a winged horse. If they believe this, they're delusional enough to believe they can defeat us in combat. They'd be wrong in both instances.

What if they kamikaze raid SE Iraq to try and overrun our bases, using WMD on the troops wherever concentrated. I believe we fared badly in simulations when they used silworms against our ships in the gulf.

Just what ifs - I hope our planners have nasty - real nasty - packages prepared to fend off and slap back iranian assaults against our troops in region.

This all gets uglier if the iraqi shiia are involved and go hezbollah on us.

I need another coffee. Maybe it will all just go away. Or maybe we can vaporize ahmedinajihaad first.

August 22nd is a significant date in Islam for two reasons. First, it is supposedly the date of the prophet's "night flight" to the Temple Mount, up to heaven and then back to earth. Second, it's the date of Saladin's conquest of Jerusalem in the 1200's.

See Joel Rosenberg's article in today's National Review Online for more.

Well....Bush did include Iraq, Iran, and N. Korea in the Axis of Evil. Much of the missile technology and nuclear know-how in Iran comes from the N. Koreans. Iraq did have WMDs...no matter what the MSM says. It's been proven.

We probably thought we'd have more stability in Iraq at this point. To answer your question, I do believe we were looking down the road at dealing with Iran. I am not sure we thought it would be this soon, however. No matter....we can still handle them.

It only gets more complicated and interesting if N. Korea or China decides to pull a stunt in that part of the world while we deal with Iran.

Like Linus waits every Halloween eve in a pumpkin patch for 'the Great Pumpkin" to appear, I suspect these sicko Iranian Mullah's think the great Mahdi will crawl out of a well on Aug 22, signaling the time to start their war. I suspect iran will try to close the shipping lanes, and we suspect they will try, which is why on Aug 21 there won't be a rowboat left in Iran without a hole shot in it.

Aug 22.

1. On 8/10 (today) Iran's supreme leader Khamaeni has told his country to prepare for war with Israel and the US.

2. On multiple occasions in the last two months Ahmadinejad has said that he will respond to the UN's request to end its nuclear program on Aug 22 (Aug 22 is the anniversary of mohammed's night flight where he supposedly went from saudi arabia to jerusalem to heaven and back again).

3. Ahmadinejad promised last year to "wipe Israel off the map."

4. Bernard Lewis, Princeton Prof of Middle Eastern History (and considered the foremost expert on the subject in the US if not the world) is worried

5. Ahmadinejad and Khameni believe that it is necessary to bring about the Islamic version of armageddon to bring the return of the "hidden imam"

6. A and K believe that the time is ripe for the return of said hidden imam.

I doubt the US would be so supportive of Israel in the present conflict without realizing it could easily turn into a regional conflict involving Syria and Iran. To me this meant the US was ready for war with Iran and Syria. Such a war is inevitable, and the sooner we engage in it, the better. Time is on the side of the Islamo-Fascists running Iran.
