A top Iranian official says that Iran will be able to annihilate Israel within a day.
According to The Jerusalem Post, Hojjat al-Eslam Ali Shirazi, representative to Irans Qods Force for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, claims that all they need is 24 hours and an excuse to attack the Jewish state.
If such a war does happen, it would not be a long war, and it would benefit the entire Islamic umma [the global community of Muslims], Shirazi said, according to the Post. We have expertise in fighting wars of attrition and Israel cannot fight a war of attrition.
Shirazi went on to say that Israel is foolish to believe that they can launch an attack on Iran to stop its nuclear development.
[W]hen Israel finds itself in danger of extinction, it flails around, and so its easy for it to do foolish things and will start a war just to sting Iran.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly hinted that an attack on Iran is possible if the Tehran regime continues progressing toward a nuclear weapon. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called Netanyahu retarded during a press conference in Tehran Tuesday after accusing the Israeli leader of being a war-monger.
Whoever talks of war is retarded, Ahmadinejad said, according to The Associated Press.
The United Nations atomic agency revealed Thursday that there will be no talks with Iran this month about its nuclear program.
We are committed for dialogue and we are ready to have a meeting at an early date but the fact is, that as of today, no specific date is decided for a meeting, Yukiya Amano, director general for the International Atomic Energy Agency, told Reuters.
Amano added that Iran continues to enrich uranium.
The White House said in a statement last week that President Obama and Netanyahu remain in full agreement that Iran cannot develop a nuclear weapon.
Some people think Big Bird is more important
oh I believe the WH would release crap like that
Well,he's right there.Israel cannot fight a war of attrition.However,I wonder if they might have weapons that might allow Israel to win a quick war.My hunch is.....that they do.
The stupidity of Obama is overwhelming. Such a war would be a nuclear exchange. Forget about oil. The radioactive cloud would sweep northeast with the winds, resulting in tens of millions of deaths and hundreds of millions of sick. That would be the real disaster. Jews around the world would again have to regroup as we did after WW II. Iran would be gone, along with many of its neighbors.
They have between 500-800 nuclear weapons, some of them thermonuclear. Unlike Iran, some of Israel’s nuclear missiles are installed on submarines, where it would be nearly impossible for anyone to get to them, so they have a second strike option. Only the US, Russia, China and UK have bigger arsenals.
Israel is way ahead of you on reason, diaperheads.
You are exactly correct, Sir. It will not be a war of attrition. Instead, it will be a war of annihilation; a war that Israel is fully capable of executing.
“Only the US, Russia, China and UK have bigger arsenals.”
I think the UK only has a couple of hundred; China, 300 or so.
Is it supposed to give confidence to their people to promise that an armed conflict with Israel would not be a long war but then cite their experience in fighting wars of attrition as justification for that promise? Are not wars of attrition by definition long wars?
China ‘has up to 3,000 nuclear weapons hidden in tunnels’, three-year study of secret documents reveals
Two words for the mullets in Iran to ponder:
