You’ve got to love this:
He told reporters that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization missile defense shield in Turkey and other Persian Gulf countries are vulnerable to Iranian indigenous anti radar ballistic missiles known as “Arm”.
Hajizadeh said Iran is finalising “Arm” ballistic missile production which has been designed and manufactured by Iranian specialists.
“Arm is able to target any radar centers on land or sea with high accuracy and destroy it several times faster than the speed of sound,” he added.
Gee their missiles can break the sound barrier we better watch out…LMAO
Today is the First day that the EU Sanctions against Iran go into effect, so of course Iran will be doing War Games for the next couple of days.
Washington said the EU’s oil ban might force Tehran to give ground at the next round of nuclear talks, scheduled for this week in Istanbul. (I think who ever said that in Washington is sharing the same coffee pot with the General)
Announcing three days of missile tests in the coming week, Revolutionary Guards General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said the exercises should be seen as a message “that the Islamic Republic of Iran is resolute in standing up to … bullying, and will respond to any possible evil decisively and strongly.”
Any attack on Iran by Israel would be answered resolutely: “If they take any action, they will hand us an excuse to wipe them off the face of the earth,” said Hajizadeh, head of the Guards’ airborne division, according to state news agency IRNA. (Never heard that before)
The missile tests will target mock-ups of air bases in the region, Hajizadeh said, adding that its ability to strike U.S. bases in the Gulf protects Iran from U.S. support for Israel. (They have to be dipping Opium in the coffee)
“U.S. bases in the region are within range of our missiles and weapons, and therefore they certainly will not cooperate with the regime (Israel),” he told IRNA. (You really want to test that theory?)
The Sanctions cut off 18% of Irans income and make it a little harder for Nations that still deal with them to do so. I don’t believe either the Russians or the Chinese are going to pay any attention to any restrictions placed on them by the UN. There will be more talks that go nowhere in Istanbul on Tuesday, but they won’t even be attended by high level decision makers from any of the Governments. Just a meeting of the pencil pushers.
Oh and the UAE and Bahrain said that as long as the crazies in Iran are running their war game. The two rivals of Iran will run joint war games of their own.
Just another week in the Gulf…. lol
