Iran: We Can Destroy US Bases 'In Minutes'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 4/7/12 | Gabe Kahn

Iran on Wednesday claimed it has the capability to destroy US bases “within minutes.”

US "bases are all in range of our missiles, and the occupied lands [Israel] are also good targets for us," Revolutionary Guard commander Amir Ali Haji Zadehthe Fars news agency.

The three-day Great Prophet 7 training exercise - which simulated rapidly releasing batteries of hundreds of guided missiles and Iran-made drones at mock-ups of US bases - wrapped up on Wednesday.

Zadehthe claimed that 35 US bases are within the 2,000 km range of Iran’s rockets, although the actual number of bases within this area is closer to 10.

Iran's bellicose rhetoric comes amid rising tension between Iran and the US, already locked in a long-running stand-off over Iran’s nuclear program.

Washington, the European Union, Gulf Arab states, and Israel all believe Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons in contravention of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Just the Ohio class subs in the area would lay waste to Iran.That is if Obama would be willing to kill so many of his fellow Muzzies.

If only we would.

It is time to go Dresden on most of the Middle East and North African populations.

Where’s the line that says, “I am Barack Hussein Obama and I approve of this message from Iran”?

2-3 missiles with MIRVs from an Ohio would be all it would take if they got hyperactive. And they wouldn’t have to be in the area at all.

Silly camel humpers, we have 57 states so there are more bases they haven’t found.

I'm afraid Hussein would sacrifice every base and serviceman on them, then bow and apologize to the ragheads for being in the way of their weapons.

They could get off some shots at U.S. bases around the Persian Gulf. Of course, some PAC-3’s are probably ready for intercepts.

More delusion from the ‘Holy City of Qom’. The real question is whether the Iranian turban turners who make such ludicrous remarks believe them or is it just propaganda for internal consumption and for their clueless stooges in the Gulf. If it is the former than this is a case of psychotics in command of Iran. Not good at all. Persians abroad and many in fanatistan itself must read and hear this nonsense with the deepest mortification. Persia was once a great country now it is a country of great fools.

The United States could destroy the entire Middle East, including Iran, without emptying half the silos on one Trident missile submarine. Modern SLBMs are MIRVed, meaning one missile can destroy multiple cities with much more megatonnage than Hiroshima or Nagasaki. The Iranians have atomic weapons, we have thermonuclear weapons. Anyone here know what the trigger is for an h-bomb?

The trigger of a fusion weapon is a fission weapon.

Only in the center of a fission explosion, can we produce both the temperature and pressure needed to cause fusion.

A thermonuclear weapon has a primary (fission) and a secondary (fusion).

Here is a diagram of the W88 warhead. It has a yield of 455 kilotons. 30 times more powerful than Little Boy dropped on Hiroshima.

Bad calculation. After the first strike (which may mean SOME losses for the US), the second strike capability does not exist for Iran. Do they not read history?

Japan made a raid on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. That ended with Japan being the first nation ever to have atomic annihilation rained down upon them, and they came to understand the meaning of “unconditional surrender”.

And Japan was FAR more prepared to go to war than Iran.

For the first time, the United States is explicitly committing not to use nuclear weapons against nonnuclear states that are in compliance with the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, even if they attacked the United States with biological or chemical weapons or launched a crippling cyberattack.

Obama severely limits conditions of retalitory nuclear option

OK, Iran, let’s assume you can launch a lot of bombs at US bases and Israel. What response do you think is taken by the U.S. after you launch those strikes - even with bozo in the WH? Then what happens when all those submarine based and airborne based nukes come raining down on Iran?

so ask yourself, do you feel lucky? well do ya ... punk?

Iran: We Can Destroy US Bases 'In Minutes'.

I remember all the bullshit sadam huesein spouted about his republican guard and superior forces before Gulf War One and his ability to destroy and annihilate all ememies and blah, blah, blah. Look what it got him. Whistleing as they tip-toe past the graveyard. Idiots. I just hope that when the time comes, as it certainly will, that we have the guts to use nukes and end it quickly and not sacrifice more American lives. Enough is enough!!!

I’d like to think if Ronald Reagan were still president, Iran would no longer exist by now. With a fellow muzzie in office, hussein will probably surrender to Iran.

Ummmmm, on the other hand, this is an election year.

Obama might want to appear ‘strong’-er, rather than simply playing drone kill.

If we were attacked, that is.

Sure, but may I suggest just Qom. No more mahdi, and their religion goes into the dust bin of history...maybe a couple of kilotons on Mecca and Medina too...

An opinion piece in Playboy Magazine around 1976-1977 suggested that the US and the USSR each take over Iran and Iraq. The US takes Iraq and the USSR takes Iran for oil and subjugates the population of both countries. It stated that politically both countries will cause problems for the US and the USSR many years to come if something wasn’t done right away to control them. I am beginning to think this guy was right and had a soothsayer’s vision.
