Dudes and Dudettes…I’m sure you’ve all heard the latest threats from Iran regarding our military bases and such. If some of you have missed this news here’s the latest news regarding this issue read/watch and see what you think about all of this. Plus, do you think Dear Leader will be using this as an October Surprise kind of thing before the Nov. elections? If he did so, do you thing it would help or hurt him..that is, if he and his ilk don’t leak it to the press first…again!

Here’s the latest news…this is via FN:

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran declared Wednesday that it can destroy nearby U.S. military bases and strike Israel within minutes of an attack on the Islamic Republic, reflecting tensions over Iran’s suspect nuclear program.

The veiled threat came during a military drill that has included the firing of ballistic missiles. The elite Revolutionary Guards, conducting the war games in Iran’s central desert, said that the missiles were aimed at mock-ups of foreign military bases.

Israel and the U.S. have hinted at the possibility of military strikes against Iran if sanctions and diplomacy do not rein in Iran’s nuclear development program. The West suspects Iran may be aiming to build nuclear weapons. Iran insists its program is for peaceful purposes.

The semiofficial Fars news agency quoted Gen. Ami Ali Hajizadeh of the Revolutionary Guards as saying U.S. bases are in range of Iran’s missiles and could be hit in retaliatory strikes. He referred to Israel as “occupied territories.”

“Measures have been taken so that we could destroy all these bases in the early minutes of an attack,” said Hajizadeh, chief of the Guards’ air-space division.

Israeli officials refused to comment. There was no immediate comment from Washington.

Hajizadeh said the Guards also successfully test fired an anti-ship missile that could sink U.S. warships in the Gulf. Gen. Hajizadeh told state TV that the shore-to-sea ballistic missile, called “Persian Gulf,” has a range of 180 miles.

State TV showed video of the launching of a white missile that hit a huge target in Gulf waters.

The U.S. reportedly bolstered its air and naval presence in the Persian Gulf. It is an effort to strengthen the U.S.’s position at the Strait of Hormuz, which is a key world oil route Iran has threatened to block amid tightening sanctions over its nuclear program, the New York Times reports.

The message to Iran is, ‘Don’t even think about it,’ ” one senior Defense Department official told the New York Times. “We’ll clear the mines. Don’t even think about sending your fast boats out to harass our vessels or commercial shipping. We’ll put them on the bottom of the gulf.”

The U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet is based in Bahrain, an island in the Gulf about 120 miles from Iran, well within range of Iranian missiles.

On Tuesday Iran said it launched a variety of missiles during the desert drill, including Shahab-3 missiles with a range of 1,200 miles that could reach Israel and southern Europe.

So…do you think Iran is all hat but no cattle, or do you think they really mean it this time? After-all, one things a fact…they do not fear Barack Obama or Valerie Jarrett & Crew, now do they?

  1. Off topic, but I stumbled across this must-see, anti-Obama documentary. What’s astounding is that it’s a BBC documentary, which is mind-boggling, given BBC’s far-left view of the universe.

  2. Iran (and all muslims) understand one thing, the point of a gun. They are brave as all hell as long as they are pulling the trigger. When Iran and any muslim sees a gun pointed at them they are then chicken shit as they come.

    They can/will bluster and threaten all they want. If Obongo has the guts (which I doubt) to actually threaten them by “really” confronting them, they will back down. The U.S. Navy and all of it’s sailors/aviators if unleashed to their full potential and capability would wipe the Iranian Navy off the ocean very quickly. Sure we would take some hits but Iran would get their ass kicked but good.

      John…I agree, but in the meantime, I would pray not one single military base is hit…can you imagine if that happened what the msm would do (with the exception of Fox) because their messiah is a dem. If this ever happened under a repub…OMG, we all know what would happen!

      Btw…where has CODE PINK and ilk, let alone the dem congress-critters demanding that all troops are from way back when, just as Dear Leader promised during his phony campaign blather…nothing but lies, and we all knew it too.

      One other thing…the mess Egypt is in now with the Muslim Brotherhood (thanks Dear Leader and crew) the Strait of Hormuz having the possibility of being blocked is one more reason we need to get our own domestic energy ASAP!

  3. When are conservative like AWD and others going to see that we have far more worrisome problems from domestic enemies, than Iran?

    I realize whipping up hate on the mooslims feels good but we have lost so much liberty and economic freedom in the last few weeks that frankly I could not give fudge what Iran does. They don’t threaten us. The Democrats threaten us a lot more.

      We realize that…there are many blog posts about what you speak of Mike W, just look around…this is about the recent threats to our military bases and such, just something different that does matter..I want our troops home, in the meantime…if Iran did do what they threaten here…there had better be hell do pay. One other thought, we conservatives can walk and chew gum at the same time too – Just my two-cents.

        Iraq #1, Afghanistan, Iraq #2, Libya, maybe Syria. What the hell are we doing maiming and killing thousands of American boys and foreign people in the Arabian desert? Does our alliance with Israel require us to invade every Islamic country? Why? We should not let the Israel lobby, the Pentagon and the defense industry control our foreign policy. Being the only superpower requires restraint.

      You’re right, we do have a lot of domestic enemies, namely a good percentage of the dumocrat party, but the threat posed by Iran cannot be discounted.

  4. Kill one American soldier…..strike at one American base…..attack one American naval ship……and the Iranians are going to wish “”Allah”” was real and will protect them……

    Somehow I don’t think so…….

    the Iranian navy……….OOOOOOOOOOOH !!!!!!

      Just to let you know, that is a real although heavily photoshopped image of Cuban refugees. They actually made it across the Florida Straits in that thing. Looks like something a redneck would build. Hehe

        I have known several very cool Cubans. They are conservative, anti-Castro, and can’t wait for the POS to die. I am sadly reminded of poor refugee Elian Gonzalez. His mother died delivering him to freedom in the U.S. Then Bill Clintoon’s nasty bull dyke Janet Reno had her jack booted thugs forcibly return the child to communist hell. I hope Bill, Janet and everyone else responsible for this fiasco drops through the gates of hell to burn forever, and soon.

      The Persians truly are delusional if they think they can face an armada of Allied warships with such contraptions as that. A hillbilly such as myself with a 22 rifle and good scope could sink that thing in no time flat.

  9. Louisiana Steve says:

    A little wisdom inspired by standing in the sun too long with a bald head and no cap:

    War with Iran is not yet imminent. The human shields have not departed for Tehran from San Francisco and New York.

    Iran is toast if they attack any U.S. military assets in the region. So far, they’ve been able to kill our soldiers, but how dare they shoot at a ship or blow up the mess hall on a base in Kuwait!

    I propose we build a golf course on some shit hole island in the Strait of Hormuz and dare the Iranians to attack it. When they do, Obama may get mad enough to retaliate.

    Thank you for listening. If you have more questions, feel free to call the Obama Democratic Strike Force. They’re based in Washington D.C. You can find their number in the YELLOW pages under ‘Cowards’.

    Thatisall.

    You can bet your last dollar if WW III starts Iran will be right in the middle of it. That said, we won’t have to strike Iran first because Israel will. Israel’s survival depends on keeping the ambitions of Iran and other rogue nations in the Middle East in check.

  12. Enoch Powell says:

    Iran is not a threat to anybody. They will not build nuclear weapons: They don’t particularly seem to want to and it is a primitive country full of third-world savages who will not succeed in becoming a serious nuclear power. If they ever used a nuclear weapon, it would simply be suicide for them.

    Our criminal government needs to portray Iran as a threat in order to justify it’s own leftist tyranny. Obonzo thinks that threatening Iran makes him appear to be a real man instead of the overgrown-adolescent homosexual that he obviously is.

    Iran could also come in handy to provide that false “state of emergency” that I’m certain Obonzo and his handlers are considering in order to cancel the election.

    There is no longer any rule of law in this country. Robert’s betrayal on ObamaCare, Fast and Furious and its coverup, Zimmerman’s arrest, Obonzo’s illegal amnesty for third-world savages and huge numbers of other illegal outrages by the “government” prove that our ruling elite can and will do anything to further impose a leftist tyranny.

    Attacking Iran would be just about the stupidest thing possible, but since our government is not only a leftist tyranny, but an incompetent gang of fools, then if they see some sort of selfish, short-term advantage in yet another ridiculous war, then that war will happen.

  13. Nixonfan says:

    Don’t get me started. The defense industry has a lot invested in the Iranian Threat, just as they did in the Iraqi Threat, the Dear Leader Threat and the Paki Threat. None of these countries has or had ICBMs; they have derivations of the SCUD, which is a derivation of the V-2, which is a museum piece. None of these countries have or had nuclear weapons. DPRK blew up a lot of TNT under a mountain, or at best a 1-KT device. Ditto the Pakis. They have nothing to throw, and nothing to throw it with. It is in their interest for the world to think they have “nuclear weapons”, but they don’t. Even the Mossad says that Iran has nothing. Only highly developed countries have the twin capabilities of (1) miniaturizing the bomb into a throwable warhead; and (2) delivering the warhead with precision over long distances. When and if one of these guys gets the bomb, it will be very large, unwieldy, and the size of Hiroshima (definitely not the H-Bomb). Maybe they could put it into a 747 and crash the 747. That’s the best they will be able to do.

    It’s true we would wipe the Iranian military off the field in less than 90 days however the assumption that then the population would be cowed into some sort of groveling obedience is a complete break with reality.
    Every occupied country will have an outraged minority that will happily suffer 10-1 losses to kill the infidels. I remember Vietnam and we beat the communists like drums and we were as sharp and effective as any troops in the world but every once in a while charlie would get lucky and we’d have another dead or wounded soldier. While they had unlimited reinforcements and the media was beating the anti-war drums until we had to leave.
    It really doesn’t matter because the Israelis are going to unilaterally attack the nucular plant and we are then going in as a matter of course.
    The only way to win though is to exterminate the population and are we willing to do that? That is the real question.

  15. TiminKuwait says:

    As I type this I am 38.14 miles from the Iranian boarder. I sure HOPE they are bluffing, but I really don’t think they are. They are just biding their time for an attack. They are also waiting until the political winds in the GCC change away from the US and toward Islam. Problem is, most GCC nations don’t like the Shia very much. Bharian which is home to the 5th fleet has a fairly large percentage of Shia and they constantly have trouble with them. If they were to ever take control of the government there, we may not be quite as welcome.

    Currently, KSA, UAE, Bharain, Qatar, Oman, and Kuwait have good relations with US. IF that were to change, Iran would have no obsticles to launch an attack.
