Iran can take their so called threats and stick them where the sun don’t shine. They know the consequences of any retaliation on Israel. Madman Assad can fight his own battles!The loser and Iran! You stay out of it or you will pay the price losers!

It seems Iran threatens to strike Israel sooner than the other way round, just becoz its ally Syria was attacked. This may further pull Russia and U.S. into play.

@ BlueCannon, don’t forget China, India, Pakistan plus any other country in the region who might be a bit jumpy. You could add an estimated 2-3 billion people to the equation.

You know the Iranian government is rattled when
the open threats start. Apparently some Revoltionary
Guard members were killed by the strike on the convoy
and Iran cannot openly admits it, so it expresses
itself like a school-yard bully. We know the only
kind of retaliation that Iran is capable of and that
is to use the terrorists of Hizbullah and
repeat the Bulgaria terrorist attack on a bus
fulll of civilians.

Iran will be full of empty threats until the day when they won’t be.

We will wake up some day soon to find out that Iran has detonated a nuclear warhead possibly over a Carrier Task Force in the Persian Gulf.

And the World will change again forever.

It is interesting that Iran’s position has even forced Saudi Arabia, our dictator friend and supporter of the “democratic” movement in Syria, to condemn Israel’s aggression (http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/02/04/287257/saudi-arabia-slams-israel-attack-in-syria/).

Evidently it is one thing for Arab countries to attack each other, and another for Israel to attack them. Actually, the so called Iranian threat which other Commenters are blabbering about above, was really only a general warning, and it could well be that Arabs and Muslims are brought together by Israel’s attacks. On the other hand, Israel continually does its best to disrupt Arab/Muslim unity.

The Israelis are shaking in their boots over this statement. Of more concern was Saturday’s display of the Qaher-313 stealth fighter/bomber that Iran claimed was purely defensive, but the name Conqueror-313 (Qaher = Conqueror) will excite anti-Iranian bloggers excessively. A more sedate “F-313″ is in red on the fuselage.

The plane is a single seat, single engine, aircraft with a dual tail and the standard stealth contours and coatings. It carries air to air missiles or air to ground bombs in internal bays in the fuselage, so it is like all other modern advanced fighter/bombers. A film displays the aircraft in flight and reveals that the exhaust baffles work to prevent detection by other aircraft or heat seeking missiles.

Two years ago, Iranians captured a US RQ-170 stealth drone, revealing stealth detecting radars and hacking programs that took control of the US drone and told it to land in Iran by telling it that Iran was its base in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Now, Iran has stealth aircraft. Israeli and US aggression against Iran will be more costly for Israel and the US with each passing day. Saeed Jalili’s statement restates a simple fact: wars and threats of wars cause nations to prepare for war.

@brazillian1:

Actually, that story about helping Hezbollah seems fishy. Evidently the Israeli missiles hit a research building, at least pictures were shown of a badly damaged building, and eye-witness reports talked about the building. Are Israeli missiles suddenly that inaccurate, that they missed a convoy? A few weeks ago they were boasting about being able to target some Palestinian through the window of his car.

Most of what Israel says seems to be lies. Actually, that applies quite well to the rest of the West also: telling the truth seems to be unpatriotic these days. If there is any advantage to be gained, just make it up.

We assassinate people throughout the world. What’s a few lies?!

xcanada2, according to previous reports, Syrian rebels claimed responsibility for attacking the “military research” facility in Jamraya and western diplomats blamed Israel specifically for attacking a convoy Syria denies existed
