Skip to comments.Iranian general: Israel ‘will be destroyed’ if it attacks our nuclear program

DUBAI A high-ranking Iranian general said on Saturday Israeli military action against Irans nuclear program would lead to the collapse of the Jewish state, Fars news agency reported.
Last weeks round of nuclear talks between Iran and world powers in Moscow failed to secure a breakthrough, heightening fears Israel might take unilateral military action to curb Irans nuclear activities.
The two sides agreed to a follow-up meeting of technical experts on July 3, saving the process from outright failure.
They cannot do the slightest harm to the [Iranian] revolution and the system, Brigadier General Mostafa Izadi, deputy chief of staff of Irans armed forces, told Fars.
"If the Zionist regime takes any [military] actions against Iran, it would result in the end of its labours, he added.
If they act logically, such threats amount to a psychological war but if they want to act illogically, it is they who will be destroyed.

The Popeye Turbo can carry a 200kg nuclear warhead to a range of 1,500 kilometers.
Iran better watch out.
Can I get a bet down anywhere?
Big yawn to Iranian general.
Let me guess, “mother of all battles”?
Fars news agency *********
They left out the t in Fars. More hot air from morons who have a deathwish.
“...Can I get a bet down anywhere?...”
I was just thinking this, when I read the article. Good idea. I don’t think many book makers will be giving high odds against Israel. Frankly, I don’t think Iran has any idea what they would be up against in ANY form of conflict.
And where is “Tehran Tommy”? that should be the replacement for “Baghdad Bob”? :-)
Anyone know if the radioactive fallout induced mutations would undo the centuries of Muslim inbreeding?
Because whether it would or not, Iran would certainly covered in it. Eventually this has to come to a head. No way does Israel let Iran get nukes. I believe them when they say “Never Again”. Yes, we scratch our heads at why Israel puts up with what it does but when it becomes an immediate existential threat, they will level everything that threatens them.
One day this Iranian general will find out the God of Israel is much more powerful than the God of Iran! May he come to know Almighty God before it is too late for him!
Heck, I’d bet that if the Israelis felt that they WERE going out, their final strikes would be big cobalt-salted weapons placed both to do damage AND for where their plumes would go.
Plus Cairo, Riyadh, Mecca, Medina, Damascus, and Teheran. . .
This general reminds me of the bounty hunter in the movie, Outlaw Jose Wales.
Bounty Hunter: “A man’s got to do something for a living.”
Jose Wales: “Dying ain’t much of a living.”
Can I get a bet down anywhere?
I would bet that Damascus glows in the dark and there will be a new part of desert in Iran called Glass Flats.
Ha Ha! Don’t think so general.I believe God has a different plan.
Is this general talking about the country Iran that fought an 8 year war against Iraq and could only muster a stalemate? The same Iraq that was defeated by the United States in a matter of weeks?
Doesn’t he realize that an attack on Israel is also an attack on the U.S?
Yes indeed, they left out a 't'.
And so I Fart in the Iranian general's direction.
"We will HUFF, and we will PUFF...and we will BLOOOOOOOW their house down".
Don't bet on it, DUMBASS!!
Hey General!!! think: if they can take out your nukes, your most protected facility, do you think they can take out anything else, like your whole country?
“Heck, Id bet that if the Israelis felt that they WERE going out, their final strikes would be big cobalt-salted weapons placed both to do damage AND for where their plumes would go.”
And NOT airbursts, unless you want to call twenty feet an “airburst”.
But, of course. You don’t GET fallout plumes to speak of with airbursts. The more matter in the initial fireball, the more matter to adhere radioisotopes to. . .
Israel...Now is the time to...Get’er Done!
An airburst is much more destructive than a ground burst because of thermal radiation.
Lets say a 455 kiloton W88 warhead was detonated 6,000 feet above the Capital Building.
The fireball would be over a mile wide.
People would get third degree burns up to 7 miles away.
People would get second degree burns up to 12 miles away.
There would be millions of casualties from these terrible burns.
Iranian general: Israel will be destroyed if it attacks our nuclear program
Decisions, decisions, go for the air burst for maximum destructive effect, or a ground burst for massive fallout effect?
Considering that it’s Iran, I vote for BOTH weapon configurations!
Any one of many possible events could lead to the start of it.
Turkey promises ‘decisive’ action after Syria shoots down its fighter jet
Turkey: ERDOGAN - A MODERN-DAY SULTAN?
Israel could use a neutron bomb. We may have limited ourselves, but Israel has not. What better way to get rid of invaders, without destroying the weapons they are using.
Iran better watch out.
It wouldn't take that many cruise missiles.
There's not that much useful stuff in Iran worth destroying.
nuclear facilities, Power generating facilities, oil depots, refineries, ports, communication facilities and of course ALL the ayatollah residences.
"Iranian general: Israel will be destroyed if it attacks our nuclear program!"
That’s not the point. A cobalt-salted bomb is SUPPOSED to be used in a ground burst, simply because the resultant cobalt-60 is SIGNIFICANTLY stronger of a radioactive emitter than the usual fallout isotopes. . . you’re not as worried about the blast and thermal, as you are about dropping a serious plume of REALLY deadly fallout. . .
“youre not as worried about the blast and thermal”
About 50% of the deaths at Hiroshima were from third degree burns.
The thermal radiation is the most deadly part of nuclear weapons.
“Yea, and if the Queen had balls shed be the King.”
Yes. And if the president had balls—he’d still be a queen.
One last time: the POINT of a “cobalt-salted” weapon, or similar weapon, is to create a far deadlier fallout plume than normally would be expected from a nuclear or atomic detonation of the same size.
I don’t know the exact specifics, and wouldn’t discuss them if I did know them, but the use of such a weapon is PRIMARILY to deny the downwind area for an extended period of time.
The immediate thermal and blast effects are secondary to the designed purpose of such weapons.
