Iran could launch pre-emptive Israel strike-commander

Iran could launch a pre-emptive strike on Israel if it was sure the Jewish state was preparing to attack it, a senior commander of its elite Revolutionary Guards was quoted as saying on Sunday.

Amir Ali Hajizadeh, a brigadier general in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, made the comments to Iran's state-run Arabic language Al-Alam television.

"Iran will not start any war but it could launch a pre-emptive attack if it was sure that the enemies are putting the final touches to attack it," Al-Alam said, paraphrasing the military commander.

Hajizadeh said any attack on Iranian soil could trigger "World War Three".

"We can not imagine the Zionist regime starting a war without America's support. Therefore, in case of a war, we will get into a war with both of them and we will certainly get into a conflict with American bases," he said.

"In that case, unpredictable and unmanageable things would happen and it could turn into a World War Three."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made increasing hints that Israel could strike Iran's nuclear sites and has criticized U.S. President Barack Obama's position that sanctions and diplomacy should be given more time to stop Iran getting the atomic bomb.

Tehran denied it is seeking weapons capability and says its atomic work is peaceful, aimed at generating electricity...

A reminder for General Amir Ali Hajizadeh.

Zechariah 14: 12 This is the plague with which the Lord will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. 13 On that day people will be stricken by the Lord with great panic. They will seize each other by the hand and attack one another.

I wondered why there was all this talk about Israel hitting Iran. I thought maybe it was a way of pressuring Iran. Maybe its a way of giving Iran cover for its first-strike on Israel.

Someone help me out here: If Israel and Iran are in a war before election day, who do you think it would hurt the most; Obama or Romney? Obama’s foreign policy inexpericence is starting to be very obvious. On Foreign Policy questions today, Chris Wallace had obama spokesman, Robert Gibbs, absolutely rattled. So, who would an Israeli/Iranian War hurt most; Obama or Romney? I’d really like some insight here.

Well General DabbaDoo; you may as well have at it. Because you can be quite sure that Israel will attack. Unless you hit first, you may never get the chance to strike at all. Do not despair, though. No matter what happens I will preserve the memory of the proud name of Yabba for future generations. General Yabba DabbaDoo, I salute you!

When you have both nations using preemptive language
it doesn’t bode well for the future.

For eight long years, none of the big mouth ayatollas in Iran couldn defeat Sadam Husien’s Iraq, which shares a border with the Persian scum. This is the same Iraq that the USA crushed in only three weeks, without having to use any of it’s most lethal weaponry. I always laugh and fart when the ayatolla generals talk about their “so called” military power.

I wish that there will be a way that the people of Iran rid themselves of the Mad Mullahs and Ayatollahs.

Iranians (at least some of them) laugh at the Mullahs behind their backs.

The Persians go back a long way and are quite capable of being a great civil people.

“War hurt most; Obama or Romney? I’d really like some insight here.”

I think it would put obama in a tight position that would make him very uncomfortable. He would be forced to back Israel. Either that, or lose the election.

The Israel knows this, and that’s why I think it will happen before the election.

If Iran hits one of our bases obama will immediately surrender to the muslims. Oh, wait. He already has. Why would Iran consider themselves at war with a country whose president has already surrendered?

Dear BGEN Amir Ali Hajizadeh, Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps:

1. An Israeli EMP strike by Jericho 3 ICBMs renders all of Iran electronically and electrically deaf, dumb, and blind. This is permanent and puts the Iran back in a pre-industrial age because NOTHING electrical works. Your country is over in minutes and not hours or days.

2. Once electronically neutered, the Israelis strike and seal the underground factories, making them into tombs for the Iranians there.

3. If Iran has contingency plans with Hamas or Hezbullah to attack Israel, they turn the IDF loose and kick their butts — no prisoners — and simultaneously tell the Syrians, Egyptians, and Saudis that if they want a REAL war, Israel will obliterate them as utterly as it did Iran.

“When you have both nations using preemptive language

It’s beyond a foregone conclusion. It is prophesied (not saying you’re disagreeing).

Whatever happens, Iran and her allies will survive to launch a strike on Israel that will seem capable of wiping her out, and they themselves will be utterly decimated by the God of Israel.

The Word of God is more certain than the Earth we are standing on and the heavens above us.

I was trying to explain this to my son this morning mover breakfast. You can be sure that Israel has such weapons.

Could be the Last Days for Iran if they attack Israel.

All of this is, of course, pointless. Israel has no interest in Iran, other than the threat they pose. The destruction of Israel won’t help the Iranians one little bit.

I suggest Iran read up on the Egyptians attempt to do this in 1967.
Hint:it didn’t end well

EMP can be generated by nuclear non-nuclear means. Here's the Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_pulses

Yes, I understand the technology quite well. It would probably be nuclear though...

Iran can’t scratch their own balls, if they have any...
