Posted on 09/23/2012 9:36:15 AM PDT by lbryce
TEHRAN, Iran A senior commander in Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard has warned that Iran will target US bases in the region should a war with Israel break out.
Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh says no Israeli attack can happen without US involvement, making all US military bases a legitimate target.

making all US military bases a legitimate target. ................................... and visa versa.
lets see... if the little dog next door bites me I will attack the gigantic dog all around the world
I am confused- are we supposed to be frightened by this?
You are assuming all players are rational actors. But when your religion thirsts for the return of the 12th Imam and Armageddon, why not smite the nose of the dragon? M.A.D. doesn’t when one of the parties is actually mad.
doesn’t work, that is.
It is ...psychological logic rather than military logic. Iran is scared, too.
When someone shows they’re weak, the bully has a free hand to do what it wishes. Look at our embassies and consulates in the Mid East. Weak leader= threats from tiny country bully leaders.
Great. Ask Hitler how well opening up a second front worked out...
Wait one second here! Correct me if I’m wrong but hasn’t our Fearful Leader already pre-apologized for any acts that the Israelis might take? Didn’t he assure Ahm-a-nut-job that the good ol’ US of A, staunch ally of Israel and freedom everywhere would stand by and do nothing? So, please, pleas Mr. Nut-Job, don’t attack us, just ‘cause those Israelis are doing what we should do assuming we had a real leader. One with real stones, like Michelle has and Barry doesn’t...
These folks aren’t very logical.
And, this turds world “leader” is coming to the US next week to lecture at the UN....
You are confused because our president cares more about campaigning and making appearances on Letterman and The View rather than meeting with world leaders. Yes, I believe this is very real and our troops are in danger. Obama needs to get involved. Why does he think America would reelect a president that cares more about his interest than ours? It’s appalling to watch him disregard our safety. He has spent more time talking about us then to us. Stop apologizing and start talking Mr President!
Just what the Islamist In Chief is hoping for, with no responses.
Now we can say they did.
They know that Obama might take their side against Israel
iran’s leaders ... the lala’s of all lala’s.
If it were Mecca under that cloud, it sure would tamp things down a bit, for starters.
Has Hussein apologized yet?
This a a regime that sent teens and pre-teens, armed with plastic keys to paradise, on foot to clear Iraqi minefields with their lives. You look for "military logic"?
This is chaos theory, Iranian style. The more chaos, the better for them, they think. Bringing the US into the war will cause more chaos.
Because Harry Reid would blame Mittens, John Bohner would go cry and King Barky would take the Iranian’s side.
Iran just announced that attacking Iran would start WWIII??? What are they saying? Did Russia jump in and Obama was too busy campaigning to get the message?
If it’s gonna happen, the cowards will do it while Zero is still in office.
This has been going on since Carter 1979...
During every single US president & administration.
Khomeini back in 1979 said “America can not do a damn thing..”
Enough already w/ words.
Show them what America can do & call it delayed reaction... 33 yrs later...
Revolutionary Guard is not powerful, they are corrupt. If there is war, they will run away, same as the Iraqi army did. Twice.
zer0 and his crowd (of course) work for the other side. Russia has always worked for the other side, except maybe for six or eight years during the time the communists were overthrown. The average Russian enjoyed freedom so much, they voted to go back to communism. Many Americans simply cannot believe their eyes and ears when it comes to zer0 and his crowd willfully working to destroy the U.S.A. Many Americans do not wish to believe what is being done by zer0 and his crowd, but many of those Americans have awaken thankfully, therefore there is a chance. Maybe even as high as 1 in 3.
You have insight beyond your years. Best guess is 2 out of 3.
good to see you, FRiend.
TEHERAN WEATHER FORECAST: 10,000 degrees in the shade...
...followed by a very toxic winter
The "general" just painted a nice nook bullseye on his capital city...
g'luck wid dat...
you 2 :)
Such a huge distraction would give the green light for China to nab the Spratley Islands and maybe Taiwan. It would allow the Russians to go into Georgia. It would allow North Korea to take a whack at Seoul. And who knows what else.
unless ... well zer0 and his crowd won’t do ... maybe the pakis will. Looks like a 10,000 degree moment.
So this would be the beginning of WWIII. God, I don’t want our nation to be led in this direction with Barack Hussein Obama as our President. He might have to take a 2 week vacation to Hawaii after this exhausting campaign. God help us all.
“Why attack the US and bring them into the war?”
That assumes a president Obama would let our soldiers shoot back. He won’t protect our ambassadors. Why should he protect our soldiers.
The only reason to let our guys shoot back that I can think of that would appeal to him is it would be a bad photo-op. But even so, the old media would cover for him thru the election. After that, it does not matter. He will govern thru executive order and really won’t care about his public standing.
I’ve always believed that Iran would get its payback for 1979, and this just may be our opportunity. If they hit us, we should unleash hell upon them.
I dunno...I figure for an ol’ broad, I do pretty well comparing past history to current situations...Seems Iran did something pretty foolish when Jimmeh Cahtah was in office, too.
I hope the curmudgeonly ruler of Iran doesn’t make a mistake that he can’t undo.
My comments were merely rhetorical, maybe a bit histrionic but rhetorical nevertheless, to emphasize how meshuggeh,off-the-wall-wacky, they really are.
You've done it again. Wisdom beyond your years.
aw ... come on ... tell us what is really thought.
I’m no strategist but it looks like a no-lose move for Iran.
I’m sure Iran has our bases under observation. If there’s an increase/change in security status, because Israel signaled to us that an attack is imminent, that could be interpreted as a prelude to an Israeli attack - so they have advance warning. If Israel attacks Iran without warning and Iran attacks us in turn we get on Israel’s case for not giving us a heads up. Perhaps we retaliate against Israel by cutting some aid.
If nothing else, Iran gets in a little saber rattling to maintain their anti-crusader image.
Flattery will get you everywhere!
With the leadershit we have now? Yes.
It’s a glorious feeling being a FReeper with a FRiend like you, quite rare around these parts. Thank you very much.
