Iran Will Hit Missile Shield in Turkey if Attacked - IRGC

A senior IRGC commander, Maj. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, who heads the IRGC aerospace command, said in Tehran today that Iran will target NATO missile defense shield in Turkey if it is attacked by Israel or the US.

Gen. Hajizadeh added that Iran believes that the probability of an attack on the country is on the rise, and hitting missile defense shield in Turkey is part of Iran’s new defense strategy to counter the threat. He emphasized that Iran will now respond to threats with threats rather than a defensive position [Mehr News Agency, 26 November].

“Countering threats with threats,” has become a new battle cry in Iran, first espoused by the country’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei in a speech last week, presumably also referring to a nuclear threat.

As part of the new strategy, the Iranian senior generals are also warning the West that they would widen any future conflicts by establishing anti-Israeli fronts in Lebanon and Palestine; destabilizing the Persian Gulf; and now attacking defensive missile shield in Turkey.

This is actually an echo of Russia's recent statement from two days ago, regarding the NATO missile shield in Europe and its potential targeting of such.

Nader, are you referring to Khamenei's recent speech before a military academy audience? If so, looking at the transcript, I don't see any indication of a potential Iranian nuclear weapon strike in case of attack. There is a reference of "full force" but nothing specific to a nuclear weapon capability or strike. Where specifically do you see a "presumed" indication, in speech or publicly stated policy, that Khamenei's fatwa against nuclear weapons is now being reconsidered?

How does Irans chain of command look these days?

Who are the top 25 leaders of Irans people and military?

Hope they have a very good secondary communications platform.

Irans top leadership will be eliminated within the first few hours of this war, (no more hiding in the mosque or behind women and children, the weapons system will kill them anyway) after the first few days of this war have passed, Iran's military will no longer have a chain of command that matters!

Have Irans cowardly leaders already gone into hiding???

The time for a massive strike on Iran is very near.

Haha, if only it was that easy.

I am most certainly right in saying you couldn't point to your own city on a map, and even more so Iran.

Iran is a massive mountainous country full of tunnels and bunkers and there are plenty of places to hide.

In comparison, Lebanon is a tiny country right next to one of the largest airforces in the world, IAF, full of its AWACS, UAVS and intelligence infiltrations still hasn't managed to hit Hassan Nasrallah who makes appearances on an almost monthly bases.

If Iran attacks NATO bases in Turkey it will be a full blown war and Iran will lose.
You people and your comments are laughable. Do you know what Iran is up against?
I doubt it because if the loony regime apologists did you wouldn't be writing so much utter rubbish.

Iran has neither the obligation to defend Syria nor the ability.

There is zero reference to a nuclear response because Iran has no interest in nuclear weapons. Once Iraq's (non-existent) nuclear program was destroyed in 2003, along with the rest of Iraq, Iran lost what little interest it had in nuclear weapons.

The Anonymous morons here who wish for war with Iran will think twice once the cost of their car's gas goes to $20/gallon and their economy evaporates along with their jobs.

Both, the US, the world's most terror, devil, hypocrite and bully nation and its master, the Zionist Regime State of Israel, the world's most paranoid, condemned, coward, hypocrite, evil and bully nation, have been talking, and talking, and talking and planning, and planning, and planning of attacking the MIGHTY ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN, the most powerful nation (militarily) in the whole region of the Middle East, since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. What damn of 32 years of talking and planning of attacking the PERSIAN LION ! Could anyone imagine Iran of today compared to Iran of yesterday. Congratulation to the world's slave no.1 and its master. And don't forget China and Russia.

Nobody is wishing war with Iran but the morons you are referring to are the ones who think that Iran can attack NATO and win.

Hack, you're an onymous moron if you think that Iran isn't extraordinarily interested in nuclear weapons and isn't diligently working to be capable of assembling and delivering missile-mounted nuclear weapons

Only in the wording: answering any types of threats by threats. That's the old balance of terror terminology. He probably didn't mean it in the nuclear context.

The most powerful Muslim country in the world is neither Turkey nor Iran. The US and US based "Global fire power" ranked Turkey as no 6 because they want to sell more weapons to Turkey (the useless ones). Turkey as a single country is no way as powerful as Iran as Turkey's fighter planes can be stopped from a remote place as it do not produce what it is using or know the mechanism as well.Turkey should not alienate itself from countries that really feel for it (for example Iran). For sure Iran won't do anything to Turkey from a "Muslim brotherhood" stance but do the Turkish people want Russian missiles showering on Turkey to save the Zionists (and can Turkey do anything about it ? even NATO won't retaliate as this is how they treat Muslim countries).The missile shields are direct threats to Russia and not Iran because Iran won't attack any European countries (it just want Israel and every sensible person know that) and the same system is also circling China so it is a child's story that it is "only for Iran". Turkish people should not tolerate NATO Zionists' missile shield and should not die for some worthless Zionists .
