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.

“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.

It's just idle Iranian talk.  They haven't got the guts nor the staying power to do anything.

Wulf,as for gut's,they have some,as for absolute stupidity,they have all they need. Staying power? they can make a good first strike,after that maybe not that much. if the Iran speaks,you had better listen and take notice. I have known some Iranian's. Some really don't want the gov. they have,like us,they are stuck with what they have. I'm not defending iran,what they have done and doing need to be addressed and taken out. What is the correct answer anyway?

Dear Jim.   One thousand iranian tuna boats will probably dent the side of the USS Stennis, and that's all.  In exchange 50,000 marines will take over the entire country of Iran, just as they took over stupid Saddam Hussein's Irak.

Hey Wulf,you are most likely right,but let's not forget the 10 armed with close range rockets,USS COLE, that was only one. Iran does in deed have what it takes to wage a war and they have the backing of Russia and China. I feel certain they have nuke's as well. The Illuminati have plans to sink the Enterprise with all hands and planes,most likely from a Isreali cruise missile. No matter how we think,we are to loose,economic collapse,martial law,let's not forget population reduction. We almost don't need marine's for iran. It could just be a big smokin hole in the ground.

Dear Jim.  You are right.  The US can reduce Iran to a cinder in about 15 minutes.  But, like you say...  China and Russia are quite a different matter.  Still... I don't think Russia or China will intervene.  In my opinion, what happened to Irak is what will happen to Iran:  a neat, clean, surgical, military masterpiece with no secondary effects or consequences.  Nobody wants WWIII to start just because of a little stupid oil-rich country like Iran.

I wish it were all true Wulf. Russia is still comminist and Putin is still KGB. China has always been communist. They let in capitalism for the money. There are so many businesses from the US there now for the cheap labor. China has been trying to buy a couple of states and there is approximately over 250K chinese troops in Long Beach Cal. training with US troops to help take over. Here is a possible plan. The Enterprise gets hit with a missile or rocket of some kind and sinks in the persian gulf,possibly by Isreal and say Iran did it. course the media will say iran did it and we must attack. it's going to happen no matter how we see it,and soon.

On youtube "chinese troops in USA" That should help.

Dear Jim.  I agree with you on all counts.  However, I don't think the conflict will spread, just as it did not spread in Irak or Lybia.  And this is good.  No WWIII.
