(AP) TEHRAN, Iran - A senior commander in Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard warned that Iran will target U.S. bases in the region in the event of war with Israel, raising the prospect of a broader conflict that would force other countries to get involved, Iranian state television reported Sunday.
The comments by Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, who heads the Guard's aerospace division, came amid tension over Iran's nuclear program and Israel's suggestion that it might unilaterally strike Iranian nuclear facilities to scuttle what the United States and its allies believe are efforts to build a bomb. Tehran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
Hajizadeh said no Israeli attack can happen without the support of its most important ally, the United States, making all U.S. military bases a legitimate target.

There was a day (before Obama) when the Muzzies were so intimidated of the US they often threatened to attack Israel if the US attacked them.
Very telling what this man in the WH has taken this nation.
Wonder how many sleeper cells are in this country that came through Mexico.
If attacked by Iran, we nuke Mecca
Obama will just apologize for Iran striking our bases.
I agree. Here is the most cogent article I've found about this very topic - By our own Travis McGee/Matt Bracken
They been doing this since 1979. We just have never bothered to notice before.
I wish we had the stones to do so. Unfortunately other than a few cruise missiles and a strongly worded letter, I doubt we would do much. Particularly if the zero is still in the white house
I agree Mom MD
“If attacked by Iran, we nuke Mecca”
Obama’s not going to nuke Mecca.
He loves the place.
He’s a black rock fan!?
My guess - they'll go after Tampa. If Iran thinks Romney's going to win - things go unstable quickly.
Its becoming more and more clear that religion will be the end of mankind.
Iran never had the nukes until now...
NEVER happen. Never. The enviro’s and the dem’s have done a perfect job of telling us tapping into our own resources will take ten years and they have been saying it for forty years. In other words, we don’t have the capacity politically to strike when all sorts of international havoc will be unleashed. If we were actually energy independent and not on Solyndra style pipe dreams, we COULD nuke mecca and tell the world “they’re your problem now; oh, and don’t F’K with us”. As it stands now, all we’ll get is shut off from the rest of the world and really, what do they have to fear? We have already spent ourselves into exile and made our currency a joke. We have no manufacturing and we import H1-b’s by the thousands while not even beginning to protect our border and handing out freebe’s EVERYWHERE. It’s almost better to live as an illegal in this country instead of a citizen if you fall on hard times. What is THAT saying???
Unfortunately all too true. How things are and how they should be are so very different
Yes, Mecca nuked if the US is attacked by Iran is just another bump in the road.
“If attacked by Iran, we nuke Mecca”
And the pagan black stone would go poof!!!!
No more Allah Fubar.
I agree with you buddy. I don’t think its fear mongering when I say this PLANET is in for a couple hundred, if not more years of complete stagnation. Another “funny thing” is the U.S. will actually fair better than most. Once the real decline starts entire swaths of this planet will be inundated with disease and famine;
no-go” zones and we will have our share here on the home front.
Oh yes, and if you think you have nothing to fear because of Obama, think again. He is a temporary pimple on your arse. The rest of us is who you don't want to get mad.
