Iran rattles sabers: ’11,000 missiles ready to launch’ at U.S. and Israel

The Iranian newspaper Kayhan reported Thursday that in the first minutes of any American conflict with Iran, “Israel and all U.S. interests around the world will be targeted.”

The newspaper, which is under the supervision of Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, ran the story under the headline “11,000 Missiles Ready to Launch.”

And on Saturday, Tehran’s ambassador to Lebanon, Qazanfar Roknabadi, confirmed during a public roundtable event that the Islamic regime is prepared to attack both Israel and U.S. bases in the region if its nuclear facilities are attacked.

Citing comments from Gen. Zakaraia Hossein, the former head of the superior academy of Egypt, the Kayhan report added that “America fully knows that Iran is not Iraq” and that “a war with Iran would jeopardize all its interests in the region.”

The Kayhan report emphasized that the leaders of the Islamic regime have successfully thwarted American and Israeli threats over its illicit nuclear program. But given Iran’s missile capabilities, it said, any aggression on its soil will be met with the launch of 11,000 missiles against Israel and U.S. interests in the region.

  1. I seem to recall another Middle Eastern Sand Weasel who spewed such outrageous empty rhetoric………the echoes of which were followed by the sound of his neck as it snapped on the end of a short rope on a long drop…..his name was Saddam Hussein.

    Let the Iranians continue to beat the war drum….let them continue to push, provoke, taunt and threaten the West and Israel….then let the world watch as, with every loudmouthed threatening braggart, we put them on their collective asses resplendent with black eyes and fat lips.

    But before we loose sufficient megatonnage, let us do everything in our power to support the Iranian Green Movement…….to do otherwise is to ignore the sacrifice and efforts of thousands like Neda Agha-Soltan.

  2. Eeyore,

    Its not a question of better….simply supporting a force or movement within Iran to destabilize/fracture and or oust the current regime/theocracy…..the lesser of two evils and hopefully a process requiring less bloodshed than open military confrontation.

    This said….the risk posed by trading “the Devil we know for the Devil we don’t”, in light of the terrorist and Muslim Brotherhood undercurrents within the Green Movement is grave indeed.

  3. Yes that is all true indeed. However what, admittedly tiny, research I have done into the Green party seem to indicate that in fact they are indistinguishable from our point of view from the current IRI regime.

    Then you have the MEK which are likely the ones actually doing the sabotage within the regime these past few years but who the Baha’i claim hunt them down like dogs as well as mixed reviews from the Christian/apostates within Iran.

    I would be interested to know if there are any organized alternatives in or outside of Persia capable of leading that country back in the direction of individual rights and freedoms and away from maniacal theocracy.

  4. Eeyore,

    Sadly, with respect to your question regarding “organized alternatives”, there are none.

    The growing fight against the IRI is multifaceted with its players ranging from the Saudi’s seeking the annihilation of Persia and whispering provocation in the American ear to the MEK, an Iraqi based terrorist organization. Let us not forget the Muslim Brotherhood who has, in part, successfully hijacked the efforts of what was, initially, a democratic movement in the Middle East.

    A crude analysis……as pedestrian as one can get due to my lack of academic insight, is that Iran, an open threat to the West and Israel, is currently a feeding frenzy to a host of hyena like political forces vying for power, almost all of which harbor a hatred of the West and Israel equal to or greater than, the current regime.

    My hope is that the original sentiment of a need for peace and democracy within Iran, as expressed by the common man and woman, overwhelms the hyenas and galvanizes the grassroots movement.
