Iran: If attacked by Israel, we'll target U.S.
CBS ^ | 092312 | ap

Posted on 09/23/2012 7:22:24 PM PDT by Fred

(AP) TEHRAN, Iran - A senior commander in Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard warned that Iran will target U.S. bases in the region in the event of war with Israel, raising the prospect of a broader conflict that would force other countries to get involved, Iranian state television reported Sunday.

The comments by Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, who heads the Guard's aerospace division, came amid tension over Iran's nuclear program and Israel's suggestion that it might unilaterally strike Iranian nuclear facilities to scuttle what the United States and its allies believe are efforts to build a bomb. Tehran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.

Hajizadeh said no Israeli attack can happen without the support of its most important ally, the United States, making all U.S. military bases a legitimate target.

Iran: If attacked by Israel, we'll target U.S.

There was a day (before Obama) when the Muzzies were so intimidated of the US they often threatened to attack Israel if the US attacked them.

Very telling what this man in the WH has taken this nation.

I wish we had the stones to do so. Unfortunately other than a few cruise missiles and a strongly worded letter, I doubt we would do much. Particularly if the zero is still in the white house

Obama’s not going to nuke Mecca.

My guess - they'll go after Tampa. If Iran thinks Romney's going to win - things go unstable quickly.

NEVER happen. Never. The enviro’s and the dem’s have done a perfect job of telling us tapping into our own resources will take ten years and they have been saying it for forty years. In other words, we don’t have the capacity politically to strike when all sorts of international havoc will be unleashed. If we were actually energy independent and not on Solyndra style pipe dreams, we COULD nuke mecca and tell the world “they’re your problem now; oh, and don’t F’K with us”. As it stands now, all we’ll get is shut off from the rest of the world and really, what do they have to fear? We have already spent ourselves into exile and made our currency a joke. We have no manufacturing and we import H1-b’s by the thousands while not even beginning to protect our border and handing out freebe’s EVERYWHERE. It’s almost better to live as an illegal in this country instead of a citizen if you fall on hard times. What is THAT saying???

I agree with you buddy. I don’t think its fear mongering when I say this PLANET is in for a couple hundred, if not more years of complete stagnation. Another “funny thing” is the U.S. will actually fair better than most. Once the real decline starts entire swaths of this planet will be inundated with disease and famine;
no-go” zones and we will have our share here on the home front.

And Iran, you POS nation of tyrants. Attack us in any way, and I will personally deliver a device to your holiest of places and blow it the hell up. And I know I am not the only threat you face here.

Oh yes, and if you think you have nothing to fear because of Obama, think again. He is a temporary pimple on your arse. The rest of us is who you don't want to get mad.

Most solutions are really pretty simple.

Perhaps, we could throw in Medina just for good measure.

The result will be a greater influx of “refugees” from 3rd world countries into the US and more outsourcing of work overseas.

So, what else is new?

Yep, Mecca is just a bump on the road to Tehran.

We defeated NAZIISM, not just Germany in WW2. We defeated Japanese Imperialism, not just Japan in WW2.

We failed to defeat socialism itself and look where that got us, if we fail to defeat Islam do we want to know where this goes?

Two in Saudi Arabia, one in Iran. Make them so hot no one can go there for a thousand years.

The Kboom in Jerusalem should be just a blow up, then turn the site over to the Israelis.

We are in a different era. Obama ushered in the “soft power”, “reset”, “outreach” and “leading from behind” doctrines. Obama also was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace - he can't wage war, it's against his religion...uh, wait, which religion...?
In WWII it was “total war”, no hold barred kill the enemy, send in Gen. LeMay. Every American pulled his own. Now a small segment of the population fights for the remaining fat & lazy ones who shop all day long.
Now we live in fantasy world where we cannot even use nasty words to describe these blood-thirsty Islamicists. We even call them the “religion of peace”. So, when and if we decide to get serious, (like the Israelis, who cal a spade a spade), then we can cut the serpent's head off in Tehran. By the way, once Iran is obliterated, world terror will drop to near zero...

Thousands of ‘soft targets’ here - schools, hospitals, offices, malls, apts, stores, homes etc - are going to be hit in the asymmetrical warafre which breaks-out when the sleepers et their ‘orders to go’, after war breaks out. IMO.

Try it Ahmenijad and you won’t have to use a lighter to light your cigarettes nor will you need any lighting in your city be because it will glowing from radioactive fallout and will be burning for days.

Ahmenijad’s recent boldness suggests many things: (1) they might have full nuke capabilities now, (2) new alliances have formed between terrorist groups and possibly nations; I’m thinking all Middle Eastern countries AND the USSR who supplies them with much of their arsenal, and (3) they feel that the U.S. Ieadership and current state is so weak, particularly eith so many of their undergound splinter groups over here that they feel like they have a good chance of taking America on it’s own soil. That our leadership is Muslim probably indicates that it’s preplanned and that they will hand the keys over to them. It’s not unlikely that a white genocide could take place as our kind has always been an impediment to their goals.

It should have been done after 9-11.

The problem is that moslems do not fear death. After all, they get out of the hell holes they live in and get their 72 virgins when they die.

We need to make them fear death (and us) again. We need to coat each and every one of our bullets with pig fat and let them know it. (that way every moslem we shoot goes straight to hell!). We need to spray pig blood over mecca and medina before nuking them. Let all those people know they are going to hell. And make sure the rest of the moslem world knows it too.

I've talked with some of the guys who've been in Afghanistan and they say the one thing the muzzies are terrified of is being contaminated with pork.

So we need to contaminate them, and then kill them.

Yep. I couldn’t even begin to list all of the possible ‘soft targets’. Actually, the unarmed Soldiers at Ft Hood could have been considered a ‘soft target’, too, and were massacred/injured as a result of an idiotic DoD policy.

75-80% of Church I attend is CCW, but against AKs & RPGs, it’d be problematic at best.
