News wouldn’t be news without the official Iran news of the day right?
Iran’s first official response to Israel’s raid on Syria. This threatening rhetoric is nothing new to the Israeli’s who live under constant threat of extinction. Olmert said of Iran’s comments, “We are concerned, but we don’t have to lose our head.”
Six hundred Iranian Shihab-3 missiles are pointed at targets throughout Israel, and will be launched if either Iran or Syria are attacked, an Iranian website affiliated with the regime reported on Monday.
Behind a poster of Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reading: “Missile maneuver of the Great Prophet,” Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards tests the long-range Shihab-3 missile in a central desert area of Iran.
“Iran will shoot at Israel 600 missiles if it is attacked,” the Iranian news website, Assar Iran, reported. “600 missiles will only be the first reaction.”
According to the report, dozens of locations throughout Iraq, which are being used by the US Army, have also been targeted.
The Shihab missile has a range of 1,300 km, and can reach anywhere in Israel.
I personally believe that this rhetoric is full of lies. The Iranian regime has never been truthful with the international community. They honestly believe that lying and manipulation are perfectly fine in Jihad, and they are right. Taqiya is allowed when jihad is the goal.
If they launch 600 missiles at Israel in response to a Coalition attack, they will be decimated even more by the IAF. These Iranian mullahs need to get slapped before their entire country gets bombed back to the 7th century.
The “600 missile” threat may not even be true, and I wouldn’t be surprised
DEBKAfile’s military sources assert that Iran does not have as many as 600 Shehab-3 missiles capable of a simultaneous barrage – as threatened on an Iranian Web site Monday – nor sufficient launchers to fire that number.
