DUBAI - Iran has threatened to destroy US military bases across the Middle East and target Israel within minutes of being attacked, Iranian media reported on Wednesday, as Revolutionary Guards extended test-firing of ballistic missiles into a third day.
Israel has hinted it may attack Iran if diplomacy fails to secure a halt to its disputed nuclear energy program. The United States also has mooted military action as a last-resort option but has frequently nudged the Israelis to give time for intensified economic sanctions to work against Iran.

Maybe, but he needs to keep C3I in mind. Someone must give those orders.
Command, control, communications, and intelligence are all primary targets in any opening moves by a competent attacker.
Guess who's on the short list there, Amir.....
These fools talk like Rats talking to their voters. Useful idiots.
that presupposes that you survived, dumba$$es.
Sure they can.... Ssssssuuuuuuurrrrrrreeeeeee they can....
So.... this is your plan to turn your stinking, filthy, backwards third world piss-ant country into a stinking, filthy, backwards third world piss-ant smoking hole in the ground?
Yes, BUT Obama is our Commander In Chief.......
Hopefully, they only have seven more months to trash talk. I recall them back-stroking at 200 knots when Ronald Reagan replaced Jimmy Carter in 1981. While Mitt Romney is no Ronald Reagan, Barack Obama is at least 5X worse than Jimmy Carter.
BO will start a U.S. war against Iran, this October. This is BO’s October Surprise.
I heard on the news yesterday that the missile payloads are under 1000 pounds. As I recall a 1000 pound bomb will not take out a city block. The kill radious is approx 600 feet. He would have to either use hundreds of missiles or a dirty bomb. Iran probably doesn’t have five hundred of these missiles. If iran used a dirty bomb it is TEOTWAWKI for Iran
Hey, Ahmadumijob, we have a base in Honolulu.
The US now has four Ohio class submarines each capable of carrying 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles. Plus a complement of tube launched Harpoon anti-ship missiles.
A single B-52 bomber can carry 32 Small Diameter Bombs (GBU-39)(250lb), each of which will independently glide to targets as far away as 70 miles, hitting with GPS accuracy.
Warhead penetration: 3 feet of steel reinforced concrete.
Typically B-52 bombers fly in formations of three aircraft.
With just these two weapons systems, the Tomahawks would obliterate Iran’s anti-aircraft capability, then our B-52s would, along with more Tomahawks, systematically reduce Iran’s military capabilities.
And we have a heck of a lot more than just those two systems.

U.S.: We Can Destroy Iran ‘Minutes After Attack’
with what, suicide bombers??? cause that's all you'll have left...
Agreed, Mr. Lee.
With Obummer in command, does anybody really expect a competent response to ANY threat or attack?
Calling Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf! Please report to Iran for new assignment.
I for one will pop a top when the first American bomb detonates.
They keep threatening. Some day they’re gonna have to ‘put up, or shut up’, and I believe Iran will rue that day.
With all the budget problems, you have to wonder how many Tomahawks the subs actually have on board. We were running low back during the Iraq war.
“If iran used a dirty bomb it is TEOTWAWKI for Iran”
You forget that we have a cowardly Muslim ass kisser for a president.
Trump agrees with you.
You apparently don't realize Hussein is working for Iran TO GET THE BOMB and is working for the Muzzies to destroy Israel.
Egypt to Muslim Brotherhood. Muzzies are a terrorist organization sworn to destroy Israel.
Hussein used US Military illegally to hand Libya to Muzzie radicals
Hussein wants Syria handed over to Muzzie nuts.
Then it's Iran, Egypt, Iraq, Libya etc. against Israel.
Hussein is doing great in his job to weaken/destroy America and set up the Muzzies for their Armageddon. And you and most of America don't have a clue what he's doing.
And you though Hussein got us out of Iraq to help the US! He removed US Troops to hand it over to the Muzzies. Remember the last time you heard anything out of Iraq?
Absolutely empty threat. Iran's long range missiles use liquid fuel (not solid fuel) propulsion. Due to the nature of the chemicals (corrosive properties, breakdown, etc.) you simply cannot keep them fuelled for long periods of time. Liquid fuelled missiles are primarily an offensive weapon, not a defensive/retaliatory strike option. Minutes after an attack? Try hours or days before you could launch in any significant numbers.
Iran, given a reason, the US can destroy your entire damn country in the time it takes to fix instant oatmeal in the microwave.
If we’re on the ball, we can deter it, but we have to be on the ball and not have our hands tied by a CinC that loves Muslims more than Americans. We all knew when dester Storm was kicking off because of the sudden loss of communications throughout much of Iraq and our ability to do that can be very useful.
GW I was special. Diego Garcia was supposed to have enough 250lb iron bombs to attack about the southern third of the Soviet Union, yet we used so many of them that they were the biggest theater shortage item. Just about every aircraft and ship crossing the Pacific was used to pick up more of them.
This was when it was decided that unguided munitions were insufficient to our needs, and development of SDBs began in earnest. SDB II is supposed to have better guidance to get around GPS jammers.
btw, I’ve heard some wit who said that we should in future refer to GW I as “GHW”, and GW II as “GW”, for clarity.
