Iran: We'll Loose the Missiles On You If You Attack Our Nuke Sites

Well.... gee, I wonder then what we'd hit first.

Wait, wait, don't tell me. It'll come, it'll come.

Iran might pound Persian Gulf cities with ballistic missiles and use swift boats to attack American war ships in an attempt to dissuade a U.S. attack on its nuclear arms sites, a new report states.

Tehran likely would employ a mixed game plan against the U.S. military consisting of "advanced technology" and "guerilla tactics," according to a research organization with close ties to the Pentagon.

...

An Iranian missile barrage on Gulf population centers, he said, could lead the United States and its allies to "take out their oil refineries."

"Then, their economy grinds to a halt," Cordesman said. "If Iran can't export [oil], it can't earn. And that creates critical problems for the regime."

"Every time they escalate, they open themselves to attack on their own refineries, their own missile systems, and their navy and air force," Cordesman said.

Iran also could use new weapons, like advanced ballistic missiles, to attack U.S. bases and other forces positioned around the Persian Gulf, wrote Mark Gunzinger...

I see they've got a lot of eggs in the "functioning ballistic missile" basket.

They would, the experts say, also use "proxy groups" to attack US interests and possibly the US itself. This is a "news" piece so I guess we're not allowed to say "Terrorists and probably Al Qaeda."

I don't want to make it sound casual, but Iran does in fact plan on using those nukes.

At some point we have to confront this.

Thanks to Kratos.
