US military base within Iranian striking distance, official warns

A top Iranian defense official's claim that a U.S. military base in the Indian Ocean is now within missile range served both as a threat to American interests and a revelation that, if true, Tehran has doubled its striking distance.

"In the event of an irrational attack by the U.S., America's military bases will not be safe from our missiles, whether in Bahrain or at Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean," the senior official, Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) adviser Mojtaba Zonnour, was quoted as saying to Iran's "Defa Moghadas," or Holy Defense.

Her Rag Head: converse with the Japs about how vulnerable our base was on Dec 7th and what happened a bit later in the war.

Diego Garcia is also a key strategic bomber base that also is home to some of our B-2s when they tour the world.

Hitting Diego Garcia should trigger a nuclear response in my honest opinion.

Not with zero in charge. He loudly stated on more than one occasion that he would never use nuc’s.

But all of Iran is within our missile range.

But what difference does that make now?

The US already has the striking distance needed. You have a base in the Indian Ocean? Use it.

To which Hillary replies:

“Who cares? What difference does it make?”

Buy my book and see how great a SecyState I wasn’t.

Named “Hard Choices”? Heard that it was also the name of a porno flit. Guess she got the title from BJ’s film collection.

I’d prefer a book about Bill and Hillary entitled “Cankles and BJ: A modern Greek tragedy of a love of power and their mutual lust for it”.

(Jimmy the Peanut Farmer only “lusted” for some nebulous woman off in the distance. Clinton is the pro in the “lust” and “bust” area).
