If we attack Iran, Iran will attack Israel

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran will target Israel first if the United States does anything "evil", a senior commander in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards said on Tuesday.

The United States says it wants Iran's nuclear standoff with the West solved diplomatically but has refused to rule out military action.

"We have announced that wherever America does something evil, the first place that we target will be Israel," Revolutionary Guards Rear Admiral Mohammad-Ebrahim Dehqani was quoted as saying by Iran's student news agency ISNA.

The Islamic Republic has never recognized Israel and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for the Jewish state to be "wiped off the map."

Dehqani said naval wargames held in the Gulf last month "carried the warning to those countries that threaten Iran, including America and the Zionist regime".

Experts said the wargames, in which Iran said it had tested new missiles and torpedoes, were a thinly veiled threat that it could disrupt vital Gulf oil shipping lanes if it was attacked.

Good plan on their part. If any terrorist attacks us, we should attack Iran. I wonder if Hamas is now hoping we do attack Iran.

But...in a real war, if they attack Israel, I think you would see Israel knock them back to the 12th century. That's nearly last week for some of them.

Yet more bluster from the talking heads in Iran. I'm impressed.

Our president has engaged in saber rattling too much, IMO, as far as Iran is concerned

This is talk. It's not to be confused with action.

Far be it from politicians to be concerned with action when they can talk.

People thought Hitler was all talk. I'm not saying Iran will do anything, but to dismiss these type of statements out-of-hand would seem unwise.

Talk alone or talk with action, it's telling either way. Iran is scared.

Nothing has happened so let's not have anything happen. Attacking Iran only ensures that something will happen.

What do you think Iran's intentions are with their nuclear program?

AFAIK, the US has not threatened Iran with Nuclear War, just that 'all' options are on the table. Yet, we've made it abundantly clear that we want to persue a diplomatic solution.

When I see a head of state making remarks about how Israel should be 'wiped off the map' and how the holocaust was exaggerated by the west. What should I think?

Notice how they didn't say they'd blow the US off the map. Their words are carefully chosen to enflame passions on the Arab/Persian street. They're not as scared as you might think. Not of the US anyway. All the cards are in Iran's favor diplomatically right now. It's their bomb to build or not to build from what I can see.

That's more of a limitation of their delivery systems. I don't think they'd give multiple bombs to Hizbollah to be smuggled into the US. Once they acquire ICBM technology, from Russia or China, then they can directly threaten the US.

The diplomatic cards are in their favor, because the UN can't decide what to do. We have Russia and China opposing any action with Iran and the rest of the world, while concerned, is allowing Iran to dictate the terms and buy time so that whenever a decision is made, they already have a bomb.

One Israeli elite squadron can take out several Iranian brigades. Bring it on.

Yes, but can they get the nukes hidden under mountains?

If this nuclear proliferation continues to get out of hand, I will fully support nuclear tipped bunker busting bombs. Everyone's going to have nukes anyway, what's the point? I hear Brazil is talking about starting up a nuke program now.

A most excellent way of describing what should be done with Iran. I'm ready for this to happen today.

Yes, because we can all agree that Darth Vader set an excellent example of an intelligent foreign policy.

Before blasting Iran with the the Death Star we should probably bring Isreal inside to safety using the tractor beam, no?
