    Iran: We Can Hit 35 US Bases in 'Minutes'

    An Iranian military commander said that his country has detailed contingency plans to strike nearly three dozen U.S. military bases in the region should Iran be attacked, local media reported Wednesday.Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force, told reporters the U.S. has 35 bases around Iran and all are "within the reach of our missiles" and could be hit "in the early minutes after an attack," according to an English-language report from Iran's semi-official Fars News Agency. The bases were no threat but instead an "opportunity" for the Iranian military, Hajizadeh said last month, according to Fars.
    Hajizadeh's claims come as the IRGC conducts a major military exercise in which it has fired a barrage of missiles at "mock enemy bases" set up in the Iranian desert. Another IRGC commander, Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami, told reporters Tuesday the main aim of the drill "was to demonstrate the Iranian nation's political resolve to defend [its] vital values and national interests," according to Iran's state-run Press TV.

    Press TV paraphrased Salami's description of the drills as a "firm response to those who threaten Iran with the option of military action."

    Maybe they can - - and maybe they can't.

    But the U.S. CAN make Iran a freakin' parking lot pretty quick - - if necessary. And that's a fact, Jack!

    I find it hard to take Brig. Gen. Salami seriously.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    I guess we're just going to have to wait for a Republican to deal with Iran. Obama is just " Jimma Carter Lite".

    I'm way to immature to hold a straight face calling anybody, Salami.
    Oh well, I like Salami "nuked" in the microwave

    General Salami is full of baloney.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
