    Iran: Our missiles can reach US bases, Israel

    War games offer 'message of peace and friendship to countries of the region,' commander says

    msnbc.com news services updated 24 minutes ago

    TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's Revolutionary Guards tested 14 missiles on Tuesday, the second day of war games intended a show of strength to the Islamic Republic's enemies in Israel and Washington.

    The surface-to-surface missiles, with a maximum range of 1,250 miles, were fired simultaneously at a single target, the official IRNA news agency reported. The missiles put Israel, U.S. bases in the Persian Gulf and parts of southeastern and eastern Europe within Iran's reach.

    The head of the Revolutionary Guards' aerospace division emphasized Iran's preparedness to strike Israeli and U.S. interests in the event of any attack on Iran.

    "The range of our missiles has been designed based on American bases in the region as well as the Zionist regime," Commander Amir Ali Hajizadeh told the semi-official Fars news agency.

    Washington and Israel have said they do not rule out military strikes on Iran if diplomatic means fail to stop it developing nuclear weapons. Tehran denies its nuclear program is aimed at building bombs.

    Story: Iran unveils underground missile silos IRNA said the Guards fired nine Zelzal missiles, two Shahab-1s, two Shahab-2s and one upgraded Shahab-3 missile. Iranian officials have previously announced that the Shahab 3 can reach targets up to 1,250 miles away, putting Israel and U.S. bases in the Gulf within reach.

    Emboldened

    A long-time enemy of the United States, Iran has been emboldened by what it sees as U.S. military defeats in neighboring Iraq and Afghanistan. Both countries are still home to large troop numbers and Washington has other bases in the Gulf that Iran could choose to target.

    "The Americans have reduced our labors," Hajizadeh told Fars. "Their military bases in the region are in ... Afghanistan which we can hit with these missiles."

    Story: US space entrepreneur accused of aiding Iran The 'Great Prophet 6' war games, to be carried out on land and sea, are a "message of peace and friendship to countries of the region," Hajizadeh said on Monday.

    Asked whether Iranian missiles were a threat to Europe, Hajizadeh told IRNA that while Iran had the technological capacity to build longer-range missiles, the 1,250-mile range had been chosen precisely with Israel and U.S. bases in mind.

    "Except American and the Zionist regime, we do not feel a threat from any other country," he said.
    "Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

    Let 'em try it. We have one hell of a defense shield in Europe.

    There are lots of beer companies that need glass for their product anyway.

    My thoughts exactly. The Americans can stick a small nuke on a predator drone and get some video game operator in Colorado to shove it right up Khameini's hairy ringpiece.



    (Oh, and I should add that if these missiles are anything like Saddam's scuds, we were told that the safest place to be when they were launched at us was right bang in the middle of the target they were aiming for. )

    Don't be silly. They used their oil money to pay the Pakis and North Koreans to do it for them.

    A compromise: Just hit Israel and leave The US out of it.

    There is absolutely no reason to attack or invade Iran, and every reason not to.
    Like it or not, they are a significant regional power, and the world HQ of the Shia's.

    The next boost to an ailing western economy! War with Iran. The hard part is, is that the extremists in power at the moment almost certainly lost the last election. There is a very large number of Iranian's who want the guys with the guns gone.

    With Afghan's being left to their fate, the west needs some one to shoot.

    Fly, You have the IQ of a flea. May I suggest you refer to "Janes" or the CIA factbook on Military might. Iran is a joke, A balance for American might, no fucking way. A thorn in the side of Israel, yes, nothing more.
