If Israel Prepares for Attack, Iran Will Strike Preemptively

Amir Ali Hajizadeh, a brigadier general heading up the aerospace division of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. (IRGC), has told Iran’s Arabic language Al-Alam television that his country will strike preemptively if it detects preparations by Israel for an attack.

“Iran will not start any war but it could launch a preemptive attack if it was sure that the enemies are putting the final touches to attack it,” the military commander said.

Hajizadeh said an attack by Israel would be supported by the United States. “For this reason, we will enter a confrontation with both parties and will definitely be at war with American bases should a war break out,” he said, mentioning U.S. bases in Bahrain, Qatar and Afghanistan as targets.

The U.S. Fifth Fleet is stationed in Bahrain. According to U.S. government figures, there are 68,000 American troops in Afghanistan.

In other news "Man has burrito for lunch. Survives. Film at 11"

This is a non-story, like when the Iranian General said they had the capability to shut down the Straights of Hormuz. Or when the North Korean general said they would aim nuclear missiles at Los Angeles instead of Seoul. Or when the US says the nuclear option is not off the table.

Every nation wants to claim it is capable of deterrence. Big whoop.

The Iranian general is saying they would do exactly what Israel did in the 6 Days War, preemptive strikes on the eve of a planned invasion.

Rogue Israeli regime

Rogue Israeli regime has no right to draw red lines for Iran -

"It is clear who the real threat is...Israel. And all those who support its never-ending victim parade, are actually guilty of aiding and abetting in a Nuremberg crime against humanity. If there is to be a pre-emptive strike against a dangerous aggressor, we need to re-evaluate who that really is, and act accordingly."

Reminds me of another great battle of wits

I really wanted to make the appropriate substitutions for this situation - but just don't have time. You can figure it out.

Man in Black: All right. Where is the poison? The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right... and who is dead.

Vizzini: But it's so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of you: are you the sort of man who would put the poison into his own goblet or his enemy's? Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.

Man in Black: You've made your decision then?

Vizzini: Not remotely. Because iocane comes from Australia, as everyone knows, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals, and criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you.

Man in Black: Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.

Vizzini: Wait till I get going! Now, where was I?

Man in Black: Australia.

Vizzini: Yes, Australia. And you must have suspected I would have known the powder's origin, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.

Man in Black: You're just stalling now.

Vizzini: You'd like to think that, wouldn't you? You've beaten my giant, which means you're exceptionally strong, so you could've put the poison in your own goblet, trusting on your strength to save you, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But, you've also bested my Spaniard, which means you must have studied, and in studying you must have learned that man is mortal, so you would have put the poison as far from yourself as possible, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.

Man in Black: You're trying to trick me into giving away something. It won't work.

Vizzini: IT HAS WORKED! YOU'VE GIVEN EVERYTHING AWAY! I KNOW WHERE THE POISON IS!
Man in Black: Then make your choice.

Vizzini: I will, and I choose - What in the world can that be?
Man in Black: [Vizzini gestures up and away from the table. Roberts looks. Vizzini swaps the goblets]

Man in Black: What? Where? I don't see anything.

Vizzini: Well, I- I could have sworn I saw something. No matter. First, let's drink. Me from my glass, and you from yours.
Man in Black, Vizzini: [Vizzini and the Man in Black drink]
Man in Black: You guessed wrong.
Vizzini: You only think I guessed wrong! That's what's so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line"! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha...
Buttercup: And to think, all that time it was your cup that was poisoned.
Man in Black: They were both poisoned. I spent the last few years building up an immunity to iocane powder.

I had it in there at the bottom

but it got cut off.

One of my favorite movies ever.

"Are there rocks ahead?"

"If there are, WE'LL ALL BE DEAD."

Israel needs to be reminded of United States sovereignty and that we will be putting AMERICAN interests as our priority here, making it clear that they should NOT count on America backing them up. And given the grave importance of this issue with respect to further deaths, dismemberment, and other physical injuries to American troops; anticipated civilian casualties; as well as the reality of the fact that we can not financially afford to engage in another war, I think it's important that there be DISCLOSURE to the American people - as to those members of Congress (e.g., apparently the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, for one) and all others working for the UNITED STATES government (including overseas ambassadors) who are in a capacity to provide or analyze information and/or advise the president or Congress regarding this situation with Iran - those individuals who are ISRAELI citizens, i.e., have dual citizenship. Clearly, this poses a possible conflict of interests.

what fantasy world is this??

What fantasy world is this?? The US President puts American interests first when making foreign policy decisions.

What is in the best interest of our fellow Americans is ALWAYS LAST. NEVER FIRST.

We have been in a foreign policy disaster for decades and our "priority level" should be plain and obvious by now

Still, most Americans aren't aware how many Israeli/Americans

were and are in government, those with dual citizenship - and that, for one, it's apparently nothing Israel allows in its own government. I, for one, didn't know until these posts this week and the various links from articles. Americans need to know, and maybe it would actually have a bearing on how things are viewed.

Iran never said they will pre-emptively strike israel

More MSM bollocks.

Amir Ali Hajizadeh said that Iran would COUNTER-ATTACK if Israel tried to bomb Iran.

“I have joined your revolution and I’m proud to be part of what you want to do.” - Ron Paul

Agree....

Iran has not invaded another country in over 200 years. In a similar way to Israel cannot attack Iran, Iran also has ZERO capability of launch an attack from Iran to Israel.

At the very possible worst, Hezbollah may step up its terrorist attacks, but as always Israel will retaliate disproportionately and destroy Palestinian cities in the West Bank and possibly reignite a conflict with Lebanon.

The whole situation is laughable if it weren't so serious

Israel will pre-emptively strike Iran so Iran will pre-emptively strike Israel if it feels Israel is getting ready to pre-emptively strike Iran.

George the moron Bush did not do us any great favors with the pre-emptive strike precedent.

It's sort of like...

UFOs: An Indicator of War

Preposterous? Well, this idea is not so preposterous according to the book, "UFOs In Wartime", by Mack Maloney.

http://www.amazon.com/UFOs-Wartime-What-They-Didnt/dp/042524...

Do you want a fairly reliable indicator of impending war? Track the volume and geographical location of current sightings of UFOs.

Golly gee,

I remember getting so downvoted that I couldn't even find my own comment... why?

Alex Jones HAS BEEN TAINTED. 80% truth, 20% his truth,

If you have heard of Project Camelot - God bless you, youtube "Rulers of the World."

Project Camelot has a lot less influence than A.Jones, and they were sought out to be destroyed - the interview I mentioned above, is with the 'elite' who was sent to destroy him - but realized he couldn't do it, and they became friends.

Trust your HEART.

The stomach is where fear comes from, a gut reaction based on a series of thoughts that your mind feels is necessary to respond to. When your stomach thinks and your brain feels - RECOGNIZE A PROBLEM.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

WOW

Project Camelot has done some great interviews over the years. They did one with Klaus Dona that just blew me away. Heh, had sort of forgotten about them until you brought them up.

If you are into pre-history, definitely check them out. They've done some great stuff with Graham Hancock too. There are more, tho i can't recall the names off the top of my head.

They do some UFO stuff too though I'm not as much into that.

Viewzone is another good site for that stuff. They have a fabulous article on Terrance Mckenna.

I hope I didn't mispeak

Project Camelot has contributed greatly, but i mean in the context of global influence and viewers - i dont think they compared to alex jones at the time of their intended removal.

It's funny.. Camelot was once a man and his girlfiend - the elites got word, split them apart.. and now they are both going at it independently.

Can't stop an idea whose time has come.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

We are praying for your full recovery

Lay off the crack cocaine sweetheart, and please stop reading those fairy tale novels.. They are not based on true stories I promise! Our prayers are with you, hoping for a quick full recovery of your sanity.

LOL

I am guessing you are one of those 'visible light' seeing, fingertip touching, nose smelling, tongue tasting, 5 sense neanderthals, huh?

No wonder you mentioned cocaine, you live in a chemical existence.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Some people converse

In an intuitive and spiritual way, as opposed to the language of reason and sound logic.

Please do respect others.

What this person is saying makes perfect sense to me, though in a roundabout way as I am familiar with the subject, and I am glad they shared that information.

Some people do not think in what we perceive to be straight lines.

Yes

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift.

Glad you made the connection and were thinking with your heart!

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Lotsa sabre rattling...There are alot of Persian Jews in Iran.

Would Israel attack Iran, really?

Persian Jews btw are protected in Iran, by fatwa (decreed by the late Khomeini)...

Fear (mongering, by US Govt.) is a good and effective weapon, btw.

Infowars disinformation?

In the text of the story on Infowars, there is this:

“Iran will not start any war but it could launch a preemptive attack if it was sure that the enemies are putting the final touches to attack it,” the military commander said.

Hajizadeh said an attack by Israel would be supported by the United States. “For this reason, we will enter a confrontation with both parties and will definitely be at war with American bases should a war break out,” he said, mentioning U.S. bases in Bahrain, Qatar and Afghanistan as targets.

BUT when you listen to the actual press conference, the General does NOT make either one of those statements! He just says Iran will defend itself.

Link

to the press conference? Would like to check it out.

The video

is right there on the linked Infowars page. I thought it was pretty funny that they report all these serious threats -- and in the video THEY provide, there's really nothing but the General saying Iran will defend itself. Not a word about attacking American bases, either.
