(Reuters) – Iran has warned the United States not to resort to military action against it, saying U.S. bases in the region were vulnerable to the Islamic Republic’s missiles, state media reported on Saturday.
“The politicians and the military men of the United States are well aware of the fact that all of their bases (in the region) are within the range of Iran’s missiles and in any case … are highly vulnerable,” Press TV reported Brigadier-General Yahya Rahim Safavi as saying.
Safavi is a military adviser to Iran’s clerical Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and was until 2007 the commander in chief of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, the force that protects Iran’s Islamic system of governance.
He also warned that Iranian missiles could reach all parts of Israel but played down any possibility of military action against his country as “faint” because of the current economic condition of the United States.
History however shows that when our economy is bad we tend to like blowing things up…. but these people believe the Messiah is coming up out of a well so I guess reality is a little beyond their grasp.
