Iran Officials Continue Asserting Capabilities to Hit U.S. Bases

Baqer Hosseini, a member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said on Thursday that Great Prophet 7 military maneuvers conducted this week showed Iran’s capabilities to deliver a crushing response to any possible foreign threat. He warned Western warship in the Persian Gulf against creating tensions to avoid Iran’s wrath.

Hosseini is the latest Iranian official to repeat a recent threat by the commander of aerospace division of IRGC, Brig. Gen. Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, that Iran has identified up to 35 U.S. bases in the region, and is prepared to destroy them within minutes of an attack on Iran.

If the recent posturing by Iranian officials meant to raise the price of oil, the markets have not taken notice by much; oil prices not moving significantly since Wednesday when Gen. Hajizadeh made his comments.

Is the U.S. alone strong and powerful enough to mess with Iran? Shouldn't the U.S. thinks twice and wise of initiating attack on Iran? Doesn't the U.S. Pentagon know well enough regarding Iran's military power and might?

Bomber Harris the British bomber command Air force commander once said that Goring the German counterpart in WW2 has a very childish attitude to think that only the German bombers can hit Britain without retaliation.
And as you know look what happened to Germany and Iran is no Germany and their commanders are no Herman Goring.
All I can say to those naive so called commanders of the IRGC is try and hit those US bases and see what will happen to your bases and infrastructure in Iran.
Childish and stupid people.

Theodore Roosevelt once said: 'I have always been fond of the West African proverb: "Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far." ' "

Iran is constantly screaming and carries a matchstick constantly trying to pick a fight with the world's only remaining superpower.

In 1979 khomeini's response to the storming and illegal occupation of the US embassy in Tehran was
"آمريكا هيچ غلطي نميتواند بكند"
As a result of that arrogant stance, more than half a million Iranians lost their lives in a proxy war with Iraq, that would never have happened if Iran hadn't gone overboard in their relationship with the USA.

Iran I repeating the same failed diplomatic missteps of the past and insists on acting like a superpower, when we all Know that even the state of California has a larger economy and bigger influence in the world than Iran.

USA seem to have forgotten the 'Tanker War' that went on for years in the 80's which gave them a pretty bad headache, and my god, there wasn't all that much we could do about it despite all the technological wonders in our possession.

Once the Iranians are pushed and provoked enough, they will start harrassing, sinking and damaging tankers in the strait, and it can go on for infinity (they certianly are capable of waging that sort of assymetric, so called 'mosaic doctrine' warfare, for as long as they wish).

Iranians showed how tenacious and enduring they can be if they set their minds on doing something. Not to mention the destruction and havoc that will be brought down on the industrial infrastructure on the opposite side of the Persian Gulf -- Saudi Arabia, UEA etc will see their Oil refineries and so on go up in flames -- what good will this witch-hunt towards Iran be then, what will it have accomplished?

The USA need to back of Iran, because the US regime is the ones that picked on Iran and created this artificial tension to begin with.

the murdering and blood stained US regime just keep pushing The Iranians to the very edge, to the brink of war. It's bad news for everybody, yes that includes US and her marionette govs in the Persian Gulf...the Arabs will suffer disastrous consequences on their own turf for tailgating US Imperialistic policy, so to speak.

You seem to have the same childish notion that Iran's oil installations will remain intact.
Don't forget that Saudi oil installations will quickly be rebuilt while the Iranian ones will remain in ruins.
Not only that but there will be a world wide oil embargo of Iranian oil.
And another childish notion is the closing of the straits.If that happens Iran will suffer the most because already Saudi Arabia has built pipelines going to the Red sea hence avoiding the Persian gulf altogether.
Net result is Iran will suffer the most out of this conflict therefor anybody who thinks that Iran has any edge in military technology or military tactics over the US is sadly mistaken and will lose any bets regarding this issue.

Could one imagine of a gang of Zionist-backed thugs led by the U.S. versus a single-handedly Iran. Where has the ball gone and isn't it a shame?
