Iran Threatens To Strike At U.S. Targets If Attacked

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran vowed on Wednesday to strike at U.S. interests worldwide if it is attacked by the United States, which is keeping military options open in case diplomacy fails to curb Tehran's nuclear program.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made the threat two days before the U.N. nuclear watchdog reports on whether Iran is meeting Security Council demands to halt uranium enrichment.

Iran says it will not stop enrichment, which it says is purely for civilian purposes and not part of what the United States says is a clandestine effort to make atomic bombs.

"The Americans should know that if they assault Iran their interests will be harmed anywhere in the world that is possible," Khamenei was quoted as saying by state television.
"The Iranian nation will respond to any blow with double the intensity," he said.

Washington, backed by Britain and France, has been pushing for sanctions if, as it expects, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reports that Iran has flouted U.N. demands.

But Russia and China, the U.N. Security Council's other two veto-holding permanent members, oppose any embargo.

The IAEA has said that after three years of investigation it still cannot confirm that Iran's aims are entirely peaceful, although it has found no hard proof of a military program.

Woooooooooh, everybody hide, hide. How can you respond with double the intensity if you're dead? And he got to be Supreme Leader how? You know what would scare the shit out of them? We should project a giant hologram in the sky over Tehran of the Shaw. Imagine the panic !!!!!! It would be great to incorporate a bellowing voice stating Mohammad was a Perv. Then have him break out in song---Allah Allah Bo Ballah Banana Bana Bo Ballah Fee Fi Fo Fallah, Allah. He could then laugh like a crazy man, stop abruptly and say (in his bellowing voice again) I am the ghost of Nuclear future, then have his head explode and drop fake blood and brain tissue from high altitude bombers. Do we have the technology to do that? That woulold sure make em scramble those super modern flying boats!

With a clear head the Supreme Leader continues
to talk the talk, but before they try to walk
the walk let me give him a little dose of
reality" Do you really wan't do this"

Ohio-class/Trident ballistic missile submarines provide the sea-based "leg" of the triad of U.S. strategic deterrent forces. The 18 Trident SSBNs (each carrying 24 missiles), carry 50 percent of the total U.S. strategic warheads. Although the missiles have no pre-set targets when the submarine goes on patrol, the SSBNs are capable of rapidly targeting their missiles should the need arise, using secure and constant at-sea communications links.

Which gives rise to this question??? What Iran,
What oil??? Gone just like smoke in a mirror...
