Iran's Revolutionary Guards dare Israel to attack

TEHRAN Iran dares Israel to attack, because the retaliation would send the Jewish state to "the dustbin of history," a senior Revolutionary Guards commander said, according to the Fars news agency Monday.
"Our greatest wish is that they commit such a mistake," the chief of the Guards' aerospatial division, Amir-Ali Hadjizadeh, was quoted as saying.
"For some time there has been a hidden energy we hope to expend to consign the enemies of Islam forever to the dustbin of history," he said.
"Our ballistic (missile) capacity never ceases to grow," he added.
The comments were one of the most belligerent reactions yet by an Iranian official to speculation that Israel was considering launching air strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities.
The threat -- raised recently in Israeli media reports, and by Israeli President Shimon Peres -- comes amid rising international tensions over Iran's nuclear programme.
A November 8 report by the UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, said intelligence strongly suggested Iran was researching nuclear weapons.
Iran has denied its nuclear programme has any military dimension.
Government officials have said they are willing to cooperate with the IAEA, while Iranian military officers have talked up their country's ability to counter-attack if strikes are launched.

Something tells me the iranians are scared of an attack.

Usually when threatened first, people tend to react in a harsh manner especially when cornered in by the top powers of the world. What do you expect? Yes master, you can bomb me if you wish and I will not say anything? You should go and fight for Israel elwapo, I think you'd fit right in.

The Iranin people have tried to revolt against the government recently. Will this help the Iranians mobilize against the army and the powers that be? Or, would an attack from the outside bring the Iranian people a patriotic cause to fight for?

What do you guys think?

This is a Western source (AFP).. are there any Iranian sources? When the drums of war start beating, Western media becomes about as relevant as Chinese state run media... take it with a grain of salt...

Iran says 150,000 missiles pointed at Israel:

"How many missiles have they prepared themselves for?" Iranian defense minister asks.

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said that Iran has up to 150,000 missiles pointed at Israel, according to the semi-official Iranian FARS news agency.

According to the report, Vahidi questioned threats against the Islamic Republic from the Jewish State, asking "How many missiles have they prepared themselves for? 10,000? 20,000? 50,000? 100,000, 150,000 or more?"

The Iranian defense minister also warned against an offensive by the United States, saying it would meet a hard defensive line were it to attack Iran.

"The US and its allies should know that Iran is so powerful that its battling will teach the US how to fight and what war and warrior mean," Vahidi told a crowd of 50,000 volunteer soldiers in Bushehr, a city where one of the country's nuclear power plants is located.

Iran claims the country's nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, but an incriminating International Atomic Energy Agency report said that Tehran has continued to covertly develop nuclear-weapons technology.

Since the release of that report, Western nations have called for international pressure on the regime in Tehran to halt their nuclear program.

The United States, the United Kingdom and Canada cast stringent sanctions on Iran's energy and financial sectors, a move which pushed Iran to expel the British ambassador.

France and the Netherlands have called for similar action against the Islamic Republic.

On Saturday, Tehran made a rare threat against Turkey, saying it could target the recently installed NATO anti-missile shield in any future conflict.

"We are ready to attack NATO's missile shield in Turkey if we face a threat and then we will follow other aims," the semi-official Mehr news agency quoted Amir Ali Hajizadeh, head of the Revolutionary Guards' aerospace division, as saying.
