Iran Responds To Massive U.S. Armada Gathering In The Persian Gulf

Following a story published in The Telegraph reporting an armada of U.S. and British ships amassing in the Persian Gulf, a top commander in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard warned Sunday that “nothing will remain” of Israel if his country is attacked.Continued below.

“Our response to Israel is clear: I think nothing will remain of Israel (should it attack Iran). Given Israel’s small land area and its vulnerability to a massive volume of Iran’s missiles, I don’t think any spot in Israel will remain safe,” said Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafar.

He also said Iran would close down the Strait of Hormuz, strike U.S. bases in the Middle East, and withdraw from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

“The US military bases sprawled around Iran are considered a big vulnerability. Even the missile shields that they have set up, based on information we have, could only work for a few missiles but when exposed to a massive volume of missiles, the shields will lose their efficiency and will not work,” he explained.

According to The Telegraph, leaders in the West are certain Iran will move to close down the Strait of Hormuz if its nuclear facilities are attacked. Approximately 35 per cent of the world’s oil supply currently moves through the Strait.

“If a war breaks out where one side is Iran and the other side is the West and U.S., it’s natural that a problem should occur in the Strait of Hormuz. Export of energy will be harmed. It’s natural that this will happen,” said Ali Jaffer.

The Telegraph says Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps navy will use an “access-denial” strategy and directly target warships and attack merchant shipping.

The newspaper reports warships from more than 25 countries, including the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, began a 12-day exercise on Saturday in the Gulf. The multi-national force includes three US Nimitz class carrier groups hosting more aircraft than Iran’s entire air force.

The war game is the largest ever conducted in the region. It will concentrate on breaking an Iranian blockade of the Strait of Hormuz and perform drills to counter Iranian mining.

In October, Iran will stage its own exercises in the Persian Gulf to demonstrate its ability to defend the country against the threat of attack. Iran is showcasing the exercise as the “biggest air defense war game in the Islamic Republic’s history, and will be its most visible response yet to the prospect of an Israeli military strike,” according to The Telegraph.

During the exercise, Iran will use aerial drones, surface-to-air missiles, and radar described as state-of-the-art. In an effort to ward off an Israeli air attack, the Revolutionary Guard will test the defenses of 3,600 strategic locations around the country.

Sources inside the Obama administration believe an attack is inevitable and will come prior to the election in November.

In late August, it was reported that Israel will strike Iran before the election. Alon Ben-David, described by the Daily Mail as a well-informed military correspondent for Israel’s Channel 10 News, claimed that Israel was “closer than ever” to a strike against Iran.

        “… kick out the ones in there governments that are spokes men for the scum bag bankers!”

        Easy to say, how can the average person do that exactly? Assasinate them? That wouldn’t solve anything, they’ll just replace with another puppet. Have an election? That won’t work, they give you a 2 puppet option between dumb and dumber. Not buy their goods and services? That won’t work they own and control everything. Knowing about it is one thing, finding a sure solution is a different kettle of fish altogether. :wink:

      Israels infested with demons. You know them as bullies taunting everyone around them into a situation where sickening depraved israel cries the victim as they kill others in made for tv retaliation.

      The world has had enough, and its time.

      The whole episode of U.S. Embassy attacks is organized to prepare American embassies abroad to be ready when Isra-hell attacks Iran. I believe it was organized from within the higher ups in the black house / state department to beef up security to all diplomatic enclaves when Iran and its allies retaliate. Perfect cover to send marines and FAST teams all over Middle East ahead of the War!

      Iran are not pussies. They will go Gonzo on Israel and be justified in it. They are not attacking anyone. Israel is an aggressor and THE problem. Everyone knows this. Israel sucks.

      Every empire eventually crumbles. We are witnessing the final death throws of the New World Order. They have used the financial system and the military might of America and their allies to try and consolidate their rule worldwide. The perpetrators of this evil scheme for profit and power are well known and their names are engraved in the book of the dead. As Adrian Salbuchi says, “when their empire is about to fail the NWO will kick the chess board” in a vain attempt to retain power. However it is time to bid good riddance to these megalomaniac psychopathic mass murderers whose fate is the Lake of Fire. The world will rejoice at their deserved demise.

      It has become ever more certain that ALL western axis governments have no genuine concern for peace, truth or justice.
      It’s a squabble for power and money between psychopathic egomaniacs with at best a dictionary-given familiarity of what Conscience is all about.
      ANY act of aggression or attempt at bullying is unbecoming and unwanted amongst non-psychopaths.
      These deviant oligarchs can no longer hide what they are.
      Only the rigid control of mainstream media allows the whole charade to continue thus far.
      With this in mind, look at the and see how the world is on the brink of massive change. – Then maybe pass on this info to everyone you know.
