    IRANIAN GENERAL OUR MISSILES ARE AIMED AT 21 US BASES IN THE REGION

    Iranian general: Our missiles are aimed at 21 US bases in the region
    Allahnoor Noorollahi declares the Islamic Republic prepared to fight its ‘greatest enemy,’ recalls Khamenei’s vow to ‘raze’ Tel Aviv
    By TOI STAFF
    Today, 12:00 am
    An Iranian general has warned that Iran’s missile arsenals are aimed at 21 American military bases in the Middle East and the country is prepared for “the greatest war against the greatest enemy.”

    In a November 29 speech, at an event in the southern city of Bushehr commemorating 40 years since the establishment of the Basij paramilitary force, Gen. Allahnoor Noorollahi also said that Iran had the ability to raze Haifa and Tel Aviv to the ground.

    Noorollahi serves as a top adviser to the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Officers College. His speech was broadcast on Bushehr TV, and was reported on and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

    “Iran is the world’s fourth [strongest] missile power after the US, Russia, and China,” he boasted in his comments, which were translated Sunday by the MEMRI watchdog group.

    Noorollahi claimed the NATO military alliance had purportedly warned that Iran could launch as many as 20,000 missiles per day, but that the number could actually be higher in a future conflict with the United States.

    “Unfortunately, some Gulf countries have become a military camp for our enemy. I must say this, 21 of their bases constitute targets for our missiles. NATO itself announced that Iran’s 110 missile bases and launching sites are capable of launching 20,000 missiles per day. This is what the enemy says. They only acknowledge part [of our capability]. When a country reveals not only its underground missile bases but also its missile ‘cities’ to the enemy – this reflects readiness and capabilities.

    “It means that we have capability to confront the greatest enemy,” he added, a reference to the US, which the regime has long characterized as its arch-foe and calls the “Great Satan.”

    He said America’s regional allies were not Iran’s enemies, and reiterated the claim by the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei that the Islamic Republic was capable of “razing” Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground.

    “Saudi Arabia and the region’s countries are neither on our level nor are they our enemies. Our enemy is the [country] that came to Kuwait and built six large bases there. This enemy knows that if it transgresses… We do not want to cause harm to our neighbors unless we are forced to,” he said.

    Noorollahi’s comments came just days after the Revolutionary Guard’s top commander, Gen. Hossein Salami, threatened to destroy Israel, the US and other countries, as he addressed a pro-government demonstration denouncing last month’s violent protests over a fuel price hike.

    Salami accused the US, Britain, Israel and Saudi Arabia of stoking the unrest.

    “If you cross our red line, we will destroy you,” he said. “We will not leave any move unanswered.”

    “We have shown restraint … we have shown patience towards the hostile moves of America, the Zionist regime (Israel), and Saudi Arabia against the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Salami added, according to Reuters.

    He said if Iran decides to respond, “the enemy will not have security anywhere,” adding that “our patience has a limit.”

    Iran has accused the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia of engineering large protests sparked by a 200 percent jump in the price of gasoline.



    Officials said the demonstrations turned violent because of the intervention of “thugs,” backed by royalists and Iran’s arch-enemies.

    At a pro-government rally last Monday, which state TV referred to as the “Rise of the people of Tehran against riots,” protesters carried signs bearing traditional anti-US slogans.

    But speakers also criticized President Hassan Rouhani’s administration for the way the fuel price hike was implemented, even as they called for capital punishment for rioters and further restrictions on social media platforms.

    During the violence, dozens of banks, gas pumps and police stations were torched across the Islamic Republic. The United Nations said it feared that dozens died, while Amnesty International said more than 100 were believed to have been killed.

    Iran has been gripped by an economic crisis since the US restored painful sanctions after withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear deal.

    At a meeting Monday with family members of a security officer who was killed in the violence, Salami vowed that Iran will “take revenge for the security defenders on the US, the UK, Israel and their mercenaries inside Iran,” the official IRNA news agency reported.

    Why do we need 21 bases surrounding Iran again? Persian Imperialism? LMAO.

    How many missiles does the US posess that are currently targeting other nations?

    Is self-defense wrong? Asking for a friend.

    LMAO.

    US response we have a single secondary target missile that at any time could be aimed at your forehead.

    Tis also posted on the big thread; I enjoyed House's colorful, well crafted & reassuring response ....almost feels like we should have office pots circulating for just how long these guys will last...

    And one full load out Ohio SSBN with 24 Trident D2s can service 288 individual targets with 475 Kt each from over 7000 miles away...At a certain point this kind of saber rattling is like breaking wind...either there is something there or there isn't. Eventually, someone is going to look at the wild eyed pistol waver and put a mag worth into his head and thorax..

    What's the body count on the US cruise missiles in Syria?

    And we're afraid of a few missiles from Iran?

    My guess is, Iran would be a parking lot, before the last missile reached its target.

    NOT new info >>>> one of the prime reasons why the Saudi bases are being re-opened and the small bases in Syria, Iraq, UE, and Saudi Arabia closed down - the f___king terrorists are pizzing on the small base perimeter fencing and there's not enough territory to use Patriot batteries ...

    the showdown war with Iran is coming - hopefully the US won't have an Alamo in Iraq or Syria - screw the politics and do the correct thing militarily ....

    um, Iran has had our Middle East military bases zeroed in for multiple years now, especially after we set up the land Based Aegis system in Romania. This is the kind of "the dog barked stories," that come out of the Middle East from time to time. Now if he had said we HAVEN'T zeroed your 21 bases into our target lists, now that would be significant.

    News Flash, Housecarl, Iran has been messing with us since 1979. And Iran has spent the money and the time to build up a first rate missile threat, besides hacking our drone and giving it to both Russia and China for Christmas. Finally, now that Iran gave the newest generation of Israel's missile to both China and Russia, all three of them have full shoot down ability between what they got from the missile and the drone. And don't forget the Chinese got an entire "spy plane," back in 2002 or so from Bush.

    Yep, this dude is pissing on the fire hydrant and marking territory.

    Iran: Between Samson and Samsung

    by Amir Taheri
    December 1, 2019 at 4:00 am

    The daily Kayhan, commonly believed to reflect Khamenei's views, is even calling for gallows to be erected to hang "evil-doers" in public, regardless of the numbers involved.

    Khamenei's "Samson option" reminds one of Hermann Goering, the German Nazi grandee who boasted that whenever he faces a cultural problem he cannot understand he reaches for his gun.

    One could call this "the Samsung option" as Jahromi, who masterminded the cutting of the Internet for several days to break the uprising's momentum, has a plan to make it difficult if not impossible for millions of poor Iranians to use mobile phones and have access to the Internet. In other words, "Samsung" ought to be treated as a weapon only reserved for the 30 percent of the population that, according to Rouhani, are "content with the good life they have

    As the latest wave of protests in Iran begins to subside, at least for the time being, the Khomeinist ruling elite still appear unable to decide what caused the uprising and how to deal with its consequences.

    One faction, led by "Supreme Guide" Ali Khamenei, offers a standard analysis that has become the hallmark of the regime's approach to all things political. Khamenei says the uprising was the result of "a deep, broad and very dangerous foreign conspiracy" and nothing else. Moreover, he insists that the only way to deal with its consequences is with an iron fist.

    The daily Kayhan, commonly believed to reflect Khamenei's views, is even calling for gallows to be erected to hang "evil-doers" in public, regardless of the numbers involved.

    As for "foreign enemies' supposedly behind the uprising that shook over 120 cities and claimed the lives of at least 300 people, Khamenei's recipe calls for "energetic riposte". The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps' news website FARS translates that enigmatic phrase into a plan for revenge against a number of countries regarded as enemies of the Khomeinist regime.

    "Our enemies live in glass houses and their most sensitive and strategic economic and military assets are within our range," the editorial says. "By inflicting heavy financial and military damage on the enemy we can push him into desperation and force him to kneel in front of us."

    I wonder how many of those "missiles" are plywood mockups.

    Well, Iran now has the best targeting systems they can get from reverse engineering our drone and the Israel missile. CHEERS!

    A lot of Iran's ballistic missile inventories are based on missiles that are evolved from the Russian Scud IRBM missile (remember those from Desert Storm?). Patriots racked up a pretty good score knocking them down. Some of their missiles may be inertially guided-but the Scud was command guided as I remember. Iran doesn't have the capabilities to do TERCOM or INS guidance in my opinion.

    They may have tons of rockets aimed at US bases, but the CEP on their missiles is so large as to be laughable. The Iranians are blowing smoke.

    Well, given their various cultural, er.... idiosyncrasies... that may not be as big a problem as you fear.

    For an incredibly fascinating look at Iran in the days when the Shah was overthrown by the Ayatollahs, look for a little paperback titled "Last Flight From Iran", by Robin and Martie Sterling.

    It's a first person account by a young woman who worked for Bell Helicopter International. She was young, idealistic and liberal... but also clear thinking and an excellent observer and writer. Her stories about the... um... challenges... involved in trying to train men who are barely away from the tribal, desert life (and whose mindset, regarding religion, women, work and machinery hasn't evolved since about the 9th century) are hilarious- and shocking. Among many othrr anecdotes is the story of how a couple of American helicopter pilots were nearly killed when the hydraulics on their chopper (newly "repaired." and fully inspected and passed by "trained" Iranian mechanics and inspectors) suddenly failed completely. They managed to muscle it back to the Earth safely... which is when they discovered the Iranian talent had "fixed" a broken hydraulic line with STRING!

    I'm sure things may have changed/improved somewhat in the intervening 50 years, but I suspect they still haven't overcome centuries of cultural indoctrination... most of which is the absolute, diametric opposite of the American Judeo-Christian moral and ethical teachings... including the late, lamented Protestant work ethic.

    I'm not saying they couldn't cause great damage and loss to *someone*... but unless they've learned thst effective nuclear physicists need to be selected based on IQ and proven abilities, not because they're the slacker nephew to some politician, the "someone" they hit may not be who they had targeted.

    Not too worried here about anything they're threatening... no more than lil' Kim's hot air emissions. Except, of course, for the potential for their actions to set off a chain REaction and trigger WWIV...

    #Iraq’s military said “5 rockets landed inside Ain al-Assad base in #Anbar province, without causing any damage.” The Iraqis control the base, also there is large number of American forces there.

    A volley of rockets struck the Ain al-Assad base in western Iraq’s Anbar province, but caused no casualties, according to the Iraqi military. The airbase hosts some US forces still inside the country.
    There were no reports of damage or casualties from the rocket fire that came in on Tuesday afternoon, nor has the origin of the missiles been identified.

    The shelling comes just over a week after Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen visited the US troops there ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. President Donald Trump had also visited the base on Christmas 2018.

    Built in the 1980s and originally named Qadisiyah, the base was taken over by US forces following the 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq, and renamed Al-Assad (“The Lion” in Arabic).

    Al-Assad served as the largest US base in western Iraq until the end of the occupation in 2011, after which it was handed over to Iraqi security forces. US and allied military advisers were deployed there again in 2014, however, as part of the war against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorists.

    Summertyme, I agree with you that Saudi is still probably like that and that Iran was like that in the 1960s and 1970s.

    But one thing that makes them very dangerous is that a large chunk of the sons of the elites (and a few daughters) were studying or had been studying engineering of all sorts in the West (the US, UK, and Germany were all popular).

    Some of these young people were lucky enough to get "stuck" in the West after the Revolution, but many others got stuck in Iran no matter what their personal feelings about the whole thing, in the early days it didn't seem "so bad" and I knew a number of people who went home voluntarily not realizing they could never leave.

    Those folks are now in the 60s, and I have no idea how well they have managed to keep up their training, work, and studies; but all of them studied under Western Scientific conditions and not a few of them got P.h.d's or even post-doctoral work under their belts.

    I personally never had a Persian student refuse to have me as a tutor, but I did from some other Middle Eastern backwaters.

    So while I would expect the Saudi's to repair with a string, I can only see Persian engineers these days doing it either on purpose or because the sanctions made the parts simply not there; but not because of basic incompetence.

    We have a friend in the UK who worked on some of the computer systems in the late 90s and he never mentioned this sort of problem, his real problem is always going back to the US with his American wife (he's a Brit) these days he mostly doesn't bother to try.

    Thread drift and off the point...

    Haven't the number of warheads per SLBM been reduced per various treaties? I know the missiles are capable of up to 14 warheads, but I thought the actual number is much lower. Not the first time I'd be wrong though.
    We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion:
    the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission;
    which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.

    Yes. Various treaties as well as reportedly mixed loads for range maximization vs number of targets or circumstances, if you only need one, you don't want to have to waste the other ones on the MIRV bus. The twelve warhead number is an open source throwdown baseline number added to the number of Tridents an Ohio has tubes for... HC

    Iran is NOTHING... and they have been in our sights for 2 decades now...BUT.....

    1. They and Syria are Russia's Lapdogs. DON"T MESS WITH MY DOG!!!!

    2. We have all forgotten that in Obama's first quarter, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, and North Korea signed a nuke pact together.

    3. And at the same time Russia and China became best buds...….

    So all of this comes into play when it comes to Iran.

    Now if we strategically include all of this and we are willing to deal with all of it and go the distance, well... goodbye Iran, Hello Russia and China.
